Bacterial Infections

  • 'Frozen Chemistry' Controls Bacterial Infections
    Chemists and molecular biologists have made an unexpected discovery in infection biology. The researchers can now show that two proteins that bind to one another slow down a chemical reaction central to the course of the disease in the bacteria Yersinia pseudotuberculosis. ...More

  • Researchers' Findings Offer Clue on How to Block Biofilm Shields of Bacterial Infections
    An investigation by Southern Research biologists reveals for the first time that fatty acids known as oxylipins play a critical role in the formation of the biofilm shield that protects disease-causing bacteria from antibiotics. A paper explaining this process, ...More

  • Dissecting Bacterial Infections at the Single-Cell Level
    Infectious diseases are a leading cause of mortality worldwide. The development of novel therapies or vaccines requires improved understanding of how viruses, pathogenic fungi or bacteria cause illnesses. Some bacterial pathogens such as Salmonella invade and replicate ...More

  • Physical Activity Could Lower the Risk of Bacterial Infections
    The risk of viral infections is known to be affected by physical activity, but little information is available regarding the more serious infections caused by bacteria. In this study, the investigators examined the relationship between leisure-time physical activity and ...More

  • Feed a Virus, Starve a Bacterial Infection?
    A new study puts some old folk wisdom to "feed a cold and starve a fever" to the test. In mouse models of disease, Yale researchers looked at the effects of providing nutrients during infection and found opposing effects depending on whether the infections were bacterial or ...More

  • New Sensor Could Help Fight Bacterial Infections
    Scientists have built a new sensor that can detect the potentially deadly E. coli bacteria in 15 to 20 minutes, much faster than traditional lab tests. E. coli can be transmitted in contaminated food and water, posing particular risks to children and the elderly. In the ...More

  • New Strategy Holds Promise for Detecting Bacterial Infections in Newborns
    Researchers supported by the National Institutes of Health have shown that it’s possible to diagnose a bacterial infection from a small sample of blood — based on the immune system’s response to the bacteria — in infants with fevers who are 2 months ...More

  • Scientists are Fighting Life-Threatening Bacteria Without Antibiotics
    Patients suffering from liver cirrhosis often die of life-threatening bacterial infections. In these patients the immune cells are unable to eliminate the bacterial infections. Scientist at the University of Bonn and TU Munich have now discovered that type I IFN released by ...More

  • Researchers Identify Bacterial Infection as a Possible Cause of Bladder Condition
    A team led by researchers at the University of Kent has identified bacterial infection as a possible cause of Overactive Bladder (OAB) Syndrome. OAB is a condition where the bladder muscle spontaneously contracts before the bladder is full. In the U.S., it is ranked in ...More
