Bacterial 'sleeper cells' evade antibiotics and weaken defence against infection

07.12.2018 15:10

New research unravels how so-called bacterial persister cells manipulate our immune cells, potentially opening new avenues to finding ways of clearing these bacterial cells from the body, and stopping recurrence of the bacterial infection.

An ancient strain of plague may have led to the decline of Neolithic Europeans

06.12.2018 12:00

Researchers have identified a new strain of Yersinia pestis, the bacteria that causes plague, in DNA extracted from 5,000-year-old human remains. Their analyses suggest that this strain is the closest ever identified to the genetic origin of plague. Their work also suggests that plague may have been spread among Neolithic European settlements by traders, contributing to their decline.

Essential Oils from Garlic, Other Herbs Show Strong Activity against Persister Lyme Disease Bacteria

05.12.2018 5:30

Lyme disease, which is caused by Borrelia burgdorferi bacteria, is the most common vector borne-disease in the United States with about 300,000 cases a year. While the majority of the Lyme disease patients can be cured with the standard 2–4 weeks antibiotic monotherapy with doxycycline or amoxicillin or cefuroxime, about 36% of patients continue to [...]
