Blossom Protect™ is a proven efficacious non-antibiotic option for combating fire blight in organic pome fruit orchards. Vista, CA (PRWEB) April 26, 2014 As the National Organic Standards Board plans to meet next week to determine whether to grant an extension of streptomycin use for fire blight control, growers and others in the industry are questioning the proposal’s impact and wondering whether there are adequate tools to control the disease without antibiotics. In a current...

Resistance to an entire class of antibiotics – aminoglycosides -- has the potential to spread to many types of bacteria, according to new biochemistry research. A mobile gene called NpmA was discovered in E. coli bacteria isolated from a Japanese patient several years ago. Global spread of NpmA and related antibiotic resistance enzymes could disable an entire class of tools doctors use to fight serious or life-threatening infections. Using X-ray crystallography, researchers at Emory...

Studies have shown that calpain participates in gentamicin-, neomycin- and kanamycin-induced inner ear cell apoptosis. Cisplatin has been shown to be an anticancer drug. However, cisplatin can lead to severe ototoxicity, induce cochlear cell apoptosis, and result in hearing decrease or loss, which limits the application of cisplatin in a clinical setting to a certain degree. A recent study by Liang Chang and colleagues from Jinzhou Central Hospital established a BALB/c mouse model of...

Apramycin, already used in animals, shows promise against drug-resistant TB and other 'superbugs,' without hearing loss The world needs new antibiotics to overcome the ever increasing resistance of disease-causing bacteria — but it doesn't need the side effect that comes with some of the most powerful ones now available: hearing loss. Today, researchers report they have developed a new approach to designing antibiotics that kill even "superbugs" but spare the delicate sensory cells...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) -- Superbugs aren't just a concern when walking through a hospital. They could also be coming from our animal farms. According to a new study, insects could be responsible for spreading antibiotic-resistant bacteria from pigs to humans. Ludek Zurek and collaborators from Kansas and North Carolina State Universities isolated bacteria from farm pig feces and compared them to the bacteria present in the intestines of the house flies and German cockroaches caught on those...
