Viruses Found to Use Intricate ‘Treadmill’ to Move Cargo across Bacterial Cells

University of California San Diego

Biologists have provided the first example of cargo within bacteriophage cells transiting along treadmill-like structures. The discovery demonstrates that bacteria have more in common with sophisticated human cells than previously believed. This type of phage could eventually be used in new treatments to cure a variety of infections.

Study: One-Fifth Of U.S. Surgeons Still ‘Overusing’ Riskier Procedure to Create Kidney Dialysis Access

Johns Hopkins Medicine

Long-term hemodialysis is a lifesaver for approximately half a million patients in the United States with kidney failure (also known as end-stage renal disease, or ESRD) who are either waiting on or unsuitable for a kidney transplant. But before the external machinery can take over the function of the kidneys — filtering and cleansing wastes from the blood — a minor surgical procedure is needed to create a stable, functional and reusable access to the circulatory system, usually through blood vessels in the arm.
