    Study Found Bacteriophage as a Promising Alternative to Antibiotics

    Antibiotic resistance has become a major problem worldwide due to overuse and overdose of antibiotics. Resistant microbes are more difficult to treat, and requires substitute medications or higher doses of antimicrobials. A new clinical study done by the researchers suggests that bacteriophages are tolerable and safe to eliminate disease-causing bacteria in the gut. This new treatment is an alternative to antibiotic…

    Virus Gene Helping Bacteria to Survive in Absence of Essential Gene

    A new research led by the team of researchers from Uppsala University, Sweden have found that the bacteriophage which is a virus and infects bacteria also helps bacteria to develop new function by revealing the undiscovered potential of their bacterial host. This new discovery also has solved the mystery of evolutionary biology i.e. how new function arises which means how…

    Do you know your Toothpaste can Fight Severe Lung Disease?

    Yes, it is true!! A new study done by the researchers of Michigan University have found that a substance called triclosan which is present in toothpaste can fight disease like cystic fibrosis when this substance is combined with already approved FDA drug. Triclosan inhibits the growth of bacteria which when combined with tobramycin, an antibiotic leads to the destruction of…

    Pseudomonas Communicate in Groups to Escape from Antibiotics

    A new study led by the team of scientists from the University of Notre Dame and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has found a new defense mechanism used by the bacterium, Pseudomonas aeruginosa to communicate in groups to avoid antibiotics. Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a pathogen causing diseases like pneumonia, sepsis and other infections. On an encounter with antibiotics, pathogen produces a…

    New Approach To Stop HIV Transmission Using Vaginal Implant Tool

    HIV stands for human immunodeficiency virus which attacks the body’s immune system and destroys certain T cells called CD4+ which is one of the important immune cells of the body. In a University of Waterloo, scientists have developed a new tool which is a vaginal implant to protect women from HIV infection. Unlike other methods of HIV prevention like anti-HIV…

    Nightmare Bacteria’s New Strategy to Outsmart the Antibiotics

    Antibiotic resistance is one of the biggest threats faced in the field of healthcare nowadays. There is a new survival strategy reported in the recent study done by the scientist using which bacteria survive and recover from exposure to antibiotics. One of the most used antibiotics across the world are beta-lactam antibiotics which also includes penicillin. This class of antibiotics…

    Bacteria May Stimulate Pancreatic Cancer by Inhibiting Immune System

    In a new study, scientists discovered that bacteria suppress the immune system which in turn promotes pancreatic cancer. The research proposes that targeting the microbiome may make immunotherapy effective against pancreatic cancer. In many types of cancer like liver and colorectal cancer, gut microbiome is studied and it has been observed that it affects the development of cancer. The gut…

    Drug-producing Bacteria Engineered using Synthetic Biology

    In a new study conducted at University of Warwick and Surrey, researchers have programmed a bacteria to produce drugs efficiently via synthetic biology using engineering principles. Bacteria have been used in bioengineering for different reasons and once again bacteria are ready to be used in synthetic biology for producing drugs, which is possible because of a breakthrough research conducted at…
