Antibiotic Resistance Surges in Dolphins, Mirroring Humans

Florida Atlantic University

Scientists obtained a total of 733 pathogen isolates from 171 individual wild Bottlenose dolphins in Florida and found that the overall prevalence of resistance to at least one antibiotic for the 733 isolates was 88.2 percent. Resistance was highest to erythromycin, followed by ampicillin. It is likely that these isolates from dolphins originated from a source where antibiotics are regularly used, potentially entering the marine environment through human activities or discharges from terrestrial sources.

Newswise: How IL-6 allows the immune response to develop for a key cell, the T follicular helper

Article ID: 718980

How IL-6 allows the immune response to develop for a key cell, the T follicular helper

University of Alabama at Birmingham

A preclinical study published in Science Immunology shows how the interplay of two interleukin signaling proteins, IL-6 and IL-2, affects the development of T follicular helper cells and germinal centers. Thus, the research may help guide future disease treatment for autoimmune diseases like lupus.
