Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Scientists are locked in an epic struggle with bacteria – with some of the tiny microbes displaying an increased resistance to antibiotics year after year. Researchers at the John Innes Centre (JIC) in Norwich, England are making major strides in the battle against bacteria through their study of stick insects and leafcutter ants, according to a new report to air on the BBC current affairs series Inside Out. “This research is at...

Tracking Antibiotic Resistant Salmonella

Peter Suciu for redOrbit.com – Your Universe Online Researchers at Penn State’s College of Agricultural Sciences are seeking to identify and track strains of antibiotic resistant bacteria as they evolve and spread. The goal is stop the spread of salmonellosis, an infection associated with the bacteria salmonella. Antibiotic-resistant strains of this bacteria are a major threat to public health, and the number of resistant strains is apparently increasing. Each year in the US, the...

Antibiotic prescribing rates for acute respiratory tract infections could be significantly lowered using internet-based training for clinicians, new research has shown. In a study, led by the University of Southampton and published in The Lancet today (Wednesday 31 July), an internet-based training program has shown to reduce antibiotics prescribing rates by as much as 62 per cent. Paul Little, Professor of Primary Care Research at the University of Southampton, comments: "The high...

The story begins with a problem - a virulent strain of a drug-resistant bacteria that was imported with the wounded from Afghanistan and spread through the United States. In cancer wards and other places where people with impaired immune systems were treated, this infection caused by the gram-negative bacterium, Acinetobacter baumannii, was particularly dangerous and it evaded the wiles of most known antibiotics. Infections caused by such gram-negative pathogens (Escherichia coli, Klebsiella...

Enterococcus is a Gram-positive, commensal bacterium inhabiting the gastrointestinal tracts of humans and other mammals. It is a main constituent of some probiotic food supplements. E. faecalis can cause life-threatening infections in humans, especially in the nosocomial environment, where the naturally high levels of antibiotic resistance found in E. faecalis contribute to its pathogenicity. It is frequently found in root canal-treated teeth in prevalence values ranging from 30% to 90% of...

Escherichia coli is a Gram-negative rod-shaped bacterium that is commonly found in the lower intestine of warm-blooded organisms. Most strains are harmless; however, some such as O157:H7 can cause food poisoning in humans and are often responsible for product recalls. The normal flora of the gut normally contains the harmless strains and often provide K2 to the body. They are not always confined to the intestine and have the ability to survive briefly outside of the body. It grows easily...
