Newswise: Researchers Identify Key Structure of C. Difficle Bacteria That Could Lead to Future Treatments

Researchers Identify Key Structure of C. Difficle Bacteria That Could Lead to Future Treatments

University of Maryland Medical Center

– Researchers from the University of Maryland School of Medicine and their colleagues have identified the structure of the most lethal toxin produced by certain strains of Clostridium difficile bacteria, a potentially deadly infection associated with the use of antibiotics. The researchers mapped out the delivery and binding components of the toxin, which could pave the way for new drugs to neutralize it.

Newswise: Why Respiratory Infections Are More Deadly in Those with Diabetes

Why Respiratory Infections Are More Deadly in Those with Diabetes

University of Maryland Medical Center

Researchers from the University of Maryland School of Medicine (UMSOM) have demonstrated in a new study, published earlier this week in the Journal of Clinical Investigation Insight, how diabetes contributes to mortality from MERS-CoV infections, and the finding could shed light on why other respiratory illnesses like the flu or pneumonia might strike those with diabetes more severely.

University of Maryland Medical Center

A University of Maryland School of Medicine study using a preclinical animal model suggests that prenatal exposure to THC, the psychoactive component of cannabis, makes the brain’s dopamine neurons (an integral component of the reward system) hyperactive and increases sensitivity to the behavioral effects of THC during pre-adolescence.
