A meta-data analysis comparing the incidence of microbial keratitis, an infection of the cornea caused by bacteria or a virus, for contact lens wearers versus post-LASIK (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis) patients indicates that over time the infection rate for the contact lens wearers was higher than for those who had LASIK to correct their vision.

Scientists uncover mechanism allowing bacteria to survive the human immune system

Added: 22.04.2017 15:25 | 0 views | 0 comments

Researchers have uncovered molecular details of how pathogenic bacteria fight back against the human immune response to infection. Scientists have identified the structure of NsrR, a bacterial protein that binds to DNA and plays a key role in the bacterium's resistance to nitric oxide (NO), which is produced in the initial immune response to infection.

Same but different: Researchers uncover a mechanism of how bacteria with the same genotype can show a different phenotype

Added: 21.04.2017 19:27 | 1 views | 0 comments

Bacterial populations pose an intriguing puzzle: in so-called isogenic populations, all bacteria have the same genes, but they still behave differently, for example grow at different speeds. Researchers now solved a part of this puzzle by studying how the bacterium Escherichia coli divides up a protein complex that detoxifies cells by pumping multiple drugs such as antibiotics out of the cell.

Atomic-level motion may drive bacteria's ability to evade immune system defenses

A study has found evidence that extremely small changes in how atoms move in bacterial proteins can play a big role in how these microorganisms function and evolve traits, such as antibiotic resistance.

Fecal microbiota transplants improve cognitive impairment caused by severe liver disease

Added: 21.04.2017 17:23 | 1 views | 0 comments

Fecal transplantation of bacteria from one healthy donor into patients that suffer from hepatic encephalopathy, is safe and improves cognitive function compared with standard of care treatment for the condition, new research concludes. The study results also demonstrated that the number of hospitalizations following fecal transplantation plus antibiotics was two, compared to the standard of care arm, which was 11.

Newborns get infection protection, not just digestion, from gut bacteria, new study in mice shows

Added: 21.04.2017 17:23 | 2 views | 0 comments

Hundreds of thousands of babies worldwide die every year from infections that ravage their digestive systems. New research in mice offers evidence that the difference in survival may come from certain bacteria in their guts, called Clostridia, which appear to provide key protection against infection, in addition to helping digest food.
