Bacteria Use Lethal Cytotoxins In Order To Evade Antibiotic Treatment
2013-11-18 11:49:43

Aarhus University Bacteria that cause infectious diseases produce a number of cytotoxins, and an international research team has now found the mechanism behind one of these toxins. The new results could make it possible in the future to develop new treatment methods to impair the cytotoxic activity and thereby reduce the severity of infectious diseases. In spite of the fact that the first antibiotics were discovered almost a century ago, infectious diseases such as tuberculosis,...

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A deadly disease that ravaged Europe before the Industrial Revolution, tuberculosis was once associated with vampires, as infected members of a single family would lose their health slowly after one relative had died from the disease. It turns out the disease has a long history on the continent, as a newly published study in the journal PLOS ONE has revealed evidence pointing to the existence of tuberculosis in Europe 7,000 years ago....

"Treatment as prevention" – early initiation of antiretroviral therapy (ART) for HIV-infected individuals with uninfected sexual partners to prevent viral transmission – appears to make economic sense, along with meeting its clinical goals of helping infected patients stay healthy and reducing transmission. A model-based analysis of data from an important clinical trial projected that early ART for such patients in both South Africa and India would be very cost-effective over the lifetime...

Badger Social Networks And The Spread Of Bovine Tuberculosis
2013-10-22 04:31:26

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online The social lives of badgers are related to their risk of infection with bovine tuberculosis (TB), according to a new study from the University of Exeter and the AHVLA's National Wildlife Management Center. "In wild animals, just as in humans, social networks are very important for disease transmission," said Robbie McDonald of the University of Exeter. "When management changes stable networks, the results for disease control are...

Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) is a pathogenic bacterial species in the genus Mycobacterium and the causative agent of most cases of tuberculosis. Robert Koch first discovered it in 1882 and that it had an unusual, waxy coating on the cell surface which makes them impossible to Gram stain. M. tuberculosis is highly aerobic and requires high levels of oxygen. It generally infects the respiratory system of mammals. Tuberculin skin test, acid-fast stain, and chest radiographs are the most...

Mycobacterium bovis is a slow-growing, aerobic bacterium and the causative agent of tuberculosis in cattle. Similar to M. tuberculosis, M. bovis can jump the species barrier and cause tuberculosis in humans. It is estimated that M. bovis was responsible for more losses among farm animals than all other diseases combined in the first half of the 20th century. Infection happens after bacterium is ingested. It is generally transmitted to humans via infected milk. Actual human infections are...
