Risk Analysis Releases Special Issue Supporting Global Measles and Rubella Elimination

Today, Risk Analysis, an International Journal, published Part 2 of a special issue focused on modeling global measles and rubella health and financial costs (following the publication of Part I in July 2016). The special issue outlines the tools used by the WHO and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to assess performance of measles control activities, evaluate progress toward regional measles elimination, and identify high risk areas to better allocate available resources to meet national and regional elimination goals.

Aggressive UTI Bacteria Hijack Copper, Feed Off It

JeffHendersonEcoli_immunecell.jpg

Researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have shown that Escherichia coli (E. coli) bacteria — those at the root of hard-to-treat urinary tract infections (UTIs) — hijack trace amounts of copper in the body and use it as a nutrient to fuel growth. The finding suggests blocking this system may starve E. coli infections, opening the door to treating UTIs using drugs that work differently from traditional antibiotics.

Wayne State Receives $1.8 Million NIH Grant to Research and Work Toward Improved Cholera Treatments

With the help of a five-year, $1.8 million grant from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases of the National Institutes of Health, researchers at Wayne State University are using a new zebrafish animal model to better understand how V. cholerae acts as a human pathogen, enabling future research to identify new therapeutic treatments as well as targets for environmental remediation. The grant is entitled “Mechanisms for Vibrio cholerae colonization and pathogenesis in zebrafish.”
