Newswise: Researchers identify ‘Achilles’ heel’ of drug-resistant superbug

Researchers identify ‘Achilles’ heel’ of drug-resistant superbug

University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston

Researchers at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) have identified a protein that allows vancomycin-resistant enterococci to defy antibiotic treatment and immune system attacks. Their discovery opens the door for future treatment options in the fight against antibiotic resistance.

Natural Toxins in the Global Food Supply Continue to Threaten the Health of Underprivileged Communities

Society for Risk Analysis (SRA)

Naturally occurring chemicals in the global food supply are known to pose a burden on worldwide health. New studies have found that a certain foodborne toxin, in addition to its known health effects,, is also linked to vaccine resistance, and for the first time the global burden of disease from foodborne arsenic, lead, cadmium, and methyl mercury has been quantified.. The Society for Risk Analysis (SRA) will present new studies as part of its Global Disease Burden Caused by Foodborne Chemicals and Toxins symposium on Monday, Dec. 9 from 1:30-3:00 p.m. as part of its 2019 Annual Meeting at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, Virginia. This symposium will provide updates to a 2015 World Health Organization (WHO) publication which analyzed the disease burdens caused by these toxins.

UCLA study shows inhibition of gene helps overcome resistance to immunotherapy

University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Health Sciences

A new study from scientists at UCLA helps explain why some people with advanced cancer may not respond to one of the leading immunotherapies, PD-1 blockade, and how a new combination approach may help overcome resistance to the immunotherapy drug.

More Than a Watchdog

Harvard Medical School

Study in mice shows the nervous system not only detects the presence of Salmonella in the gut but actively stops the organism from infecting the body Nerves in the gut prevent Salmonella infection by shutting the cellular gates that allow bacteria to invade the intestine and spread beyond it As a second line of defense, gut neurons help avert Salmonella invasion by maintaining the levels of key protective microbes in the gut Findings reveal prominent role for nervous system in infection protection and regulation of immunity

Newswise: Addition of Post-Transplant Chemotherapy to Standard Immune Treatment Shows Increase of Allogeneic Transplant Patients in Remission

Addition of Post-Transplant Chemotherapy to Standard Immune Treatment Shows Increase of Allogeneic Transplant Patients in Remission

Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey

Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey investigators compared outcomes for allogeneic stem cell transplant patients when post-transplant cyclophosphamide (PCy) was added as part of standard treatment than if standard treatment was given alone. Results showed an increase in the number of patients who were free of disease and off immunosuppression at one-year in the PCy cohort.
