UV Light Can Aid Hospitals’ Fight to Wipe Out Drug-Resistant Superbugs

A new tool -- a type of ultraviolet light called UVC -- could aid hospitals in the ongoing battle to keep drug-resistant bacteria from lingering in patient rooms and causing new infections.

Walking the Tightrope

Antibiotic use represents a special challenge, in which too much of a good thing can be dangerous to public health as a whole. The fight against a common, costly, hospital-acquired infection known as Clostridium difficile, or C. diff offers an illuminating case study in the area of so-called antibiotic stewardship.

Antidepressant Side Effects Reported More by Patients with Co-Occurring Panic Disorder

Patients who take medication for depression report more side effects if they also suffer from panic disorder, according to a new study led by researchers from the University of Illinois at Chicago published in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry.

Moffitt Researchers Use Mathematical Modeling to Explain Evolutionary Phenomenon That Leads to Treatment Resistance

A collaborative team of researchers from Moffitt Cancer Center’s Integrated Mathematical Oncology (IMO) Program, led by Alexander Anderson, Ph.D., and Oxford University’s Department of Computer Science are using mathematical models to explain how bacteria and cancer cells exploit an evolutionary process known as bet-hedging to resist medical intervention.

Reducing the Duration of Antibiotics Does More Harm than Good When Treating Ear Infections in Young Children

In a landmark trial, researchers have demonstrated that when treating children between 9 and 23 months of age with antibiotics for ear infections, a shortened course has worse clinical outcomes without reducing the risk of antibiotic resistance or adverse events.

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.

Supercomputer Simulations Help Develop New Approach to Fight Antibiotic Resistance

Supercomputer simulations at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory have played a key role in discovering a new class of drug candidates that hold promise to combat antibiotic resistance. In a study led by the University of Oklahoma with ORNL, the University of Tennessee and Saint Louis University, lab experiments were combined with supercomputer modeling to identify molecules that boost antibiotics’ effect on disease-causing bacteria.

Two Antibiotics Fight Bacteria Differently Than Thought

Two widely prescribed antibiotics — chloramphenicol and linezolid — may fight bacteria in a different way from what scientists and doctors thought for years, University of Illinois at Chicago researchers have found. Instead of indiscriminately stopping protein synthesis, the drugs put the brakes on the protein synthesis machinery only at specific locations in the gene.
