Does treating adolescent acne with systemic antibiotics have unintended consequences on the skeleton?
US researchers unmask the consequences of treating adolescent acne with systemic antibiotics; as it can lead to altered profiles of circulating bile acids that reduce osteoblast function and bone mass accrual.
US researchers find that bacteria could help tumours progress and resist treatment.
Although Cordyceps mushrooms are challenging to cultivate, researchers have shown that they can be grown on edible insects to exploit their strong therapeutic potential.
Unlike other mitochondrial diseases, a newly discovered form leads to hyperactive mitochondria, causing patients to have low body weight despite excessive food intake.
Using computational screening, researchers have discovered an antibiotic called Dynobactin, that halts the advance of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
Researchers at Synlogic are clearing the path for a new class of medicine – biotherapeutics based on synthetic biology, called synthetic biotics, which are created by programming or engineering bacteria to metabolise or secrete well-validated targets of disease pathophysiology. In this article, Dr Caroline Kurtz, Chief Development Officer at Synlogic, discusses how synthetic…
Within this ebook are features on synthetic biology, covering synthetic biotics and their potential to treat a wide range of diseases and conditions, while another piece examines the therapeutic directions the synthetic biology field will likely take in the future.
Join leading experts as they discuss the wide range of uses for CRISPR, including for therapeutics and biomanufacturing.
Antibiotic resistance is one of the key health challenges of the future. In a new study, researchers have carried out a multi-step analysis to deliver insights into translocation of the hydrophobic and hydrophilic portions of the large lipopolysaccharide molecules through the outer membrane of Neisseria gonorrhoeae. This article summarises their…
Scientists have developed a novel type 1 diabetes treatment that involves transplanting pancreas cells that produce insulin.
By studying the gut microbes of rats, researchers discovered that a bacteria known as Coprococcus comes contributes to resistance to high blood pressure drugs.
A new study has found that mycobacteria are associated with red blood cells at lung infection sites, an interaction that has escaped scientists for 140 years.
A new study has suggested that previous global research into the human microbiome is heavily biased in favour of wealthy countries such as the US and UK.
