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)


Treating upset guts with bacteria
Scientists checking bacteria which live in the intestines of autistic children may have found a way to control gut problems, such as diarrhoea or constipation, without using antibiotics, according to work presented today (Wednesday, 08 September 2004) at the Society for General Microbiology's 155th Meeting at Trinity College Dublin. View News Article (2004-08-23)


Theory shows mechanism behind delayed development of antibiotic resistance
Inhibiting the "drug efflux pumps" in bacteria, which function as their defence mechanisms against antibiotics, can mask the effect of mutations that have led to resistance in the form of low-affinity drug binding to target molecules in the cell. View News Article (2009-05-06)


Sesame seed extract and konjac gum may help ward off Salmonella and E. coli
A new study in SCI's Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture shows that konjac gum and sesame seed extract may offer protection against different strains of E. coli and Salmonella bacteria. View News Article (2008-08-06)


Oil-eating bacteria may determine environmental impact of Gulf oil
The environmental impact of millions of gallons of oil still in the Gulf of Mexico from the Deepwater Horizon incident may depend on microscopic helpers: Bacteria that consume oil and other hydrocarbons and could break down the spilled crude, making it disappear. View News Article (2010-08-12)
