An increasing number of people worldwide suffer from inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). However, no treatment is effective for all patients. In this article, researchers working on the Algae4IBD project explain how algae may represent a valuable source of prebiotics and new therapeutic agents for IBD and other diseases.
The drug resistant bacteria: CRAB, came into the ICU in hospitals in Hangzhou, China, creating an urgent need for a thorough understanding of the persistence, transmission, and evolution of CRAB populations in such environments.
US scientists have developed antibiotics that can “shape-shift”, which prevent bacteria from coming resistant against them.
This article outlines new research from the University of Pennsylvania, concerning Yersinia pseudotuberculosis, a relative of the bacterial pathogen that causes plague by triggering the body’s immune system to form lesions in the intestines.
US researchers investigate how bacteria develop an antibiotic tolerance without mutations.
A study has shown that the ES17 phage binds to heparan sulphate and can target and eliminate ExPEC bacteria in animal models.
New research has shown that 'hidden' lysis genes in bacteriophages could be used in the development of a new class of antibiotics.
The role that retrons in bacteria has been discovered by researchers, who found they protect colonies when infected by viruses.
A group of scientists has created a novel high-throughput hit-to-lead development platform to identify engineered antibacterial lysins.
The novel CRISPR-CasΦ enzyme, isolated from bacteriophages, can target a wider range of genetic sequences, say the researchers.
A group of German researchers has proposed an empty phage capsid with ligands on its surface as a novel technique to treat influenza.
Researchers have shown that incorporating noncanonical amino acids (ncAAs) in phage display expands the range of peptides it can identify.
