Princeton researchers listen in on the chemical conversation of the human microbiome

Princeton University

The microbes populating the human body play an important role in health and disease, but with few exceptions, how individual microbial species affect health and disease states remains poorly understood. A new study by Princeton researcher Mohamed Abou Donia and his colleagues, appearing in the Dec. 13 issue of the journal Science, gives scientists new tools to explore and understand the human microbiome.

Newswise: Influenza IMPRINT Cohort Study Receives Funding Boost

Influenza IMPRINT Cohort Study Receives Funding Boost

Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center

The Influenza IMPRINT Cohort study will explore the emerging idea that a person’s very first influenza virus exposure impacts the magnitude, durability and breadth of their immune response to all future flu exposures.

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.

Newswise: Texas A&M researchers uncover the science behind zapping bacteria with ultraviolet light

Texas A&M researchers uncover the science behind zapping bacteria with ultraviolet light

Texas A&M University

In the perennial clash between man and microbe, ultraviolet light has emerged as one of man’s powerful tools against many pathogens. Although ultraviolet light can wipe out several germs, the exact mechanisms that orchestrate the radiation’s damaging action have long been elusive. Texas A&M scientists can now explain how it works

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
