Antibiotics-resistant gulls worry scientists
The resistance pattern for antibiotics in gulls is the same as in humans, and a new study by Uppsala University researchers shows that nearly half of Mediterranean gulls in southern France have some form of resistance to antibiotics. View News Article (2009-06-18)

Protein discovery could unlock the secret to better TB treatment
UCL scientists have found a protein that could unlock the secret to quicker, more effective treatment of TB by waking TB bacteria in the body. Once the TB bacteria are active again, the disease becomes treatable using common drugs like antibiotics. Scientists believe that uncovering the molecular structure of this protein will lead the way to designing drugs which enable treatment of dormant and... View News Article (2005-02-28)

Bacteria are hard-wired for survival, E. coli study suggests
Some bacteria are able to thrive even when under continued attack, scientists have found, in a development that may help explain how our immune systems can't always prevent infections.  View News Article (2014-10-30)

How bacteria respond so quickly to external changes
Understanding how bacteria adapt so quickly to changes in their external environment with continued high growth rates is one of the major research challenges in molecular microbiology. View News Article (2013-12-03)

New antibiotic prescribing policies needed to curb resistance BMJ Volume 324, pp 28-30
Effect of B lactam antibiotic use in children on pneumococcal resistance to penicillin: prospective cohort study The likelihood of children carrying a resistant bug is related to the amount of antibiotics they take, finds a study in this week's BMJ. If these drugs are to retain their clinical usefulness, new prescribing policies are needed, argue the authors. The research team identified 461... View News Article (2002-01-02)

Tufted bacteria cause infection in premature babies
Bacteria that normally reside on the skin of healthy people can cause serious infections in premature babies. A group of researchers at Karolinska Institutet have now found an explanation for why a certain kind of staphylococcus can attach itself to the skin and quickly develop dynamic ecosystems: the bacteria are like tufted, self-adhesive hairballs. View News Article (2009-04-29)

Algae understand the language of bacteria
It has hitherto not been known that higher organisms, such as green algae, can communicate with bacteria. But Debra Milton, associate professor at Ume'å University in Sweden, shows in the recent issue of the prominent journal Science that bacteria attract green algae with the aid of signal molecules. Surfaces under water are rapidly colonized by bacteria, which cover the surface with a thin... View News Article (2002-11-12)

Probiotic bacteria at weaning may help alleviate allergy in infants
“Friendly” bacteria (probiotics) given to babies during weaning may help alleviate the symptoms of eczema, suggests research in Gut. View News Article (2002-06-20)

Gas-guzzling bacteria
The discovery of a new soil bacterium that consumes methane by oxidising it under atmospheric conditions is reported in Nature, out today. In well-drained soils, these methane-oxidising bacteria can reduce atmospheric levels of methane by 10 per cent. Methane is an important greenhouse gas, and over the last 200 years its concentration in the atmosphere has doubled. But, until now, its low levels... View News Article (2000-05-10)

Immunity mechanism discovered
Scientists at the University of Calgary's Faculty of Medicine have discovered a mechanism that is used to protect the body from harmful bacteria. View News Article (2013-06-19)
