Cedars-Sinai Tip Sheet for Oct. 20107

October Tips Include: A noninvasive eye scan for detecting Alzheimer’s disease; a first-of-its-kind heart device for babies born with a congenital heart defect; research that could lead to a vaccine for antibiotic-resistant “superbugs” and heart research suggesting that stem cells from young hearts could rejuvenate older ones.

Clues to the Innate Drug Resistance of a Cocoa-Fermenting Pathogen

Webp.net-resizeimage-12.jpg

At first glance, the yeast Candida krusei seems as innocuous as microbes come: it’s used for fermenting cocoa beans and gives chocolate its pleasant aroma. But it’s increasingly being found as a pathogen in immunocompromised patients—and C. krusei infections aren’t always easy to cure.

Model Predicts How E. coli Bacteria Adapt Under Stress

Researchers at UC San Diego have developed a genome-scale model that can accurately predict how E. coli bacteria respond to temperature changes and genetic mutations. The work sheds light on how cells adapt under environmental stress and has applications in precision medicine, where adaptive cell modeling could provide patient-specific treatments for bacterial infections.

“Superbug” Bacteria Gang Up on US, Fueled by Antibiotic Use, Nursing Home Study Suggests

What’s worse than getting exposed to a kind of bacteria that modern antibiotics can’t kill? Getting exposed to more than one – because they may work together to cause an infection, new research suggests. It’s time to think about such bacteria as members of an antibiotic-resistant ecosystem in healthcare environments – not as single species.
