[ Watch The Video: Nanosponge Decoy Fights Superbug Infections ] National Science Foundation A good disguise enables the nanosponge to soak up toxins from drug-resistant infections or poisons Our first instinct with infection in the body is often to find it and get rid of it! But, engineer Liangfang Zhang had another idea. With support from the National Science Foundation (NSF), Zhang and his team at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD), have created a nanosponge to...

Five years after implementing a national initiative to reduce methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) rates in Veterans Affairs (VA) medical centers, MRSA cases have continued to decline, according to a study in the November issue of the American Journal of Infection Control, the official publication of the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC). The MRSA Prevention Initiative, implemented in 2007, resulted in significant decreases in both the...

National Institutes of Health (NIH) scientists have identified a promising lead for developing a new type of drug to treat infection caused by Staphylococcus aureus, a bacterium that frequently resists traditional antibiotics. The researchers discovered a system used by S. aureus to transport toxins that are thought to contribute to severe staph infections. These toxins–called phenol-soluble modulins (PSMs)–have gained much attention in recent years, but their multitude and...

Finding could lead to treatment to prevent infection associated with catheters and medical implants What: Scientists from the National Institutes of Health have discovered how catheter-related bacterial infection develops and disseminates to become a potentially life-threatening condition. The study, which included research on Staphylococcus epidermidis in mice implanted with catheters, could have important implications for understanding many types of bacterial biofilm infections, including...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) -- Two genes discovered in mice may help identify why some people are more likely to develop potentially deadly staph infections. "If you know, up front, that a patient is at risk for developing a Staphylococcus aureus infection, then you will be better able to manage them clinically, give them preventive measures and treat them more aggressively if they become ill," Vance Fowler, M.D., MHS, an associate professor of infectious diseases in the Duke Department of Medicine,...

Scientists studying Staphylococcus bacteria, including methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA), have discovered a potent staph toxin responsible for disease severity. They also found the gene for the toxin traveling with a genetic component of Staphylococcus that controls resistance to antibiotics. The study, now online in PLoS Pathogens, shows for the first time that genetic factors that affect Staphylococcus virulence and drug resistance can be transferred from one strain to another in one...

USA300"”the major epidemic strain of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) causing severe infections in the United States during the past decade"”inherits its destructiveness directly from a forefather strain of the bacterium called USA500 rather than randomly acquiring harmful genes from other MRSA strains. This finding comes from a new study led by scientists at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), part of the National Institutes of...
