Cancer researcher identifying ways to overcome drug-resistance

South Dakota State University

Assistant Profesor Iram Surtaj will use a new imaging technique to identify drugs that can disrupt overexpression of multidrug resistance protein 1, one of the main mechanisms through which cancer cells gain resistance to chemotherapy drugs.

Machine Learning Identifies Antibiotic Resistance Genes in Tuberculosis-Causing Bacteria

University of California San Diego

Researchers have trained a machine learning algorithm to identify and predict which genes make infectious bacteria resistant to antibiotics. The approach was tested on strains of Mycobacterium tuberculosis—the bacteria that cause tuberculosis (TB) in humans. It identified 33 known and 24 new antibiotic resistance genes in these bacteria. The approach could be used to predict resistance in other infection-causing pathogens.

Grad Student Pursues Drug to Treat Aggressive Form of Blood Cancer

West Virginia University

Multiple myeloma doesn’t play around. Within five years of being diagnosed with this form of blood cancer, about half of all patients die from it. And even if they initially respond well to treatment, the cancer can hide in their bone marrow for years before reemerging in a tougher-to-treat form.

Case Western Reserve Researchers Cure Drug-Resistant Infections without Antibiotics

Case Western Reserve University

Biochemists, microbiologists, drug discovery experts and infectious disease doctors have teamed up in a new study that shows antibiotics are not always necessary to cure sepsis in mice. Instead of killing causative bacteria with antibiotics, researchers treated infected mice with molecules that block toxin formation in bacteria. Every treated mouse survived. The breakthrough study, published in Scientific Reports, suggests infections in humans might be cured the same way.
