April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A team of scientists, led by Chang Gung University, report a plastic material already used in absorbent surgical sutures and other medical devices shows promise for continuous administration of antibiotics to patients with brain infections. The findings, reported in ACS Chemical Neuroscience, show the use of the material, placed directly on the brain's surface, could reduce the need for weeks of costly hospital stays now required for...

Low doses of silver make bacteria more susceptible to antibiotic attack, paving the way for new therapies for drug-resistant and recurrent infections Slipping bacteria some silver could give old antibiotics new life, scientists at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University reported June 19 in Science Translational Medicine. Treating bacteria with a silver-containing compound boosted the efficacy of a broad range of widely used antibiotics and helped...

Using a protein complex found in breast milk, researchers force drug-resistant 'superbugs' including MRSA to respond to antibiotics again A protein complex found in human breast milk can help reverse the antibiotic resistance of bacterial species that cause dangerous pneumonia and staph infections, according to new University at Buffalo research. In petri dish and animal experiments, the protein complex – called Human Alpha-lactalbumin Made Lethal to Tumor Cells (HAMLET) –...

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...
