Suicide system in tuberculosis bacteria might hold key to treatment

The genome of the bacterium that causes TB holds a special toxin-antitoxin system with spectacular action: once the toxin is activated, all bacterial cells die, stopping the disease............…….

Selenium nanoparticles may act like antibacterial agents

The antibacterial effect of selenium may be due to the fact that at a particular concentration nano-selenium interacts with the bacterial cell surface and penetrates into the cell, thus causing damage.............

Seaweed-silver combo can fight drug-resistant bacteria in biofilms

Researchers at Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee (IIT-Roorkee) have developed a new eco-friendly nanocomposite that promises to help fight the problem of such antibiotic resistance more effectively...................

Drug resistant infections associated with higher in hospital mortality rate in...

Researchers analyzed antimicrobial susceptibility testing results and mortality outcomes for over 4,000 patients who visited one of ten tertiary or quaternary referral hospitals across India in 2015...………..

How heavy metals are helping spread drug resistance

Researchers have identified exposure to cadmium as a reason for Salmonella becoming resistant to antibiotics and have deciphered how cadmium affects the bacteria.......................

C-CAMP’s selection as a ‘CARB-X Accelerator’ to boost AMR R&D projects

As part of this partnership, C-CAMP will provide business, technical and ancillary support to CARB-X funded 'fighting drug resistant bacteria' focused R&D projects as well potential grantees...…….....

Gut bacteria are a reservoir of drug resistance genes, find THSTI...

Translational Health Science and Technology Institute, Faridabad based scientists have found that friendly gut bacteria are a reservoir of drug resistance genes which when transferred to disease-causing bacteria may make them untreatable...............

First global survey of soil genomics reveals a war between fungi...

The results from a recent global study show that bacteria and fungi are in constant competition for nutrients and produce an arsenal of antibiotics to gain an advantage over one another...................

Wellcome Sanger Institute sequences reference genomes of 3,000 dangerous bacteria

Gonorrhoea, deadly Plague and dysentery among collection of bacterial genomes now publicly available through collaboration with Pacific Biosciences...........

New method developed for faster typhoid diagnosis

The new method uses magnetic nanoparticles coupled with antibodies. In tests, it was found that over 65 percent bacteria cells got bound to nanoparticles within 30 minutes...............
