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.

Targeting Pili Could be a key to Halting Antibiotic Resistance

Stony Brook University

Antibiotic resistance is an urgent problem globally when treating many infections. Now a team of scientists believe a better understanding of the mechanisms of pili, the hair-like surface appendages on bacteria that initiate infection, could hold a key to developing new and more effective therapeutics.

E. coli’s Adaptation to Extreme Temperatures Helps Explain Resistance to Certain Drugs

Santa Fe Institute

A new study suggests that defenses against extreme temperatures give E. coli bacteria an advantage in fending off certain drugs. The work could help doctors administer antibiotics in a more precise way.
