(Phys.org) —Inspired by the wing structure of a small fly, an NPL-led research team developed nano-patterned surfaces that resist bacterial adhesion while supporting the growth of human cells.
With the help of cutting edge microscopy, new research at U of T Mississauga could help stop "superbugs" in their tracks.
Scientists from the University of Bern have developed a novel substance for the treatment of severe bacterial infections without antibiotics, which would prevent the development of antibiotic resistance.
Given a critical change in the environment, how exactly, do species adapt? Professor Tom Vogwill and colleagues wanted to get at the heart of this evolutionary question by measuring the growth rates and DNA mutations of 8 ...
Scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have devised a new antibiotic based on vancomycin that is powerfully effective against vancomycin-resistant strains of MRSA and other disease-causing bacteria.
Scientists at the University of East Anglia have made a breakthrough in the race to solve antibiotic resistance.
New insights into a surprisingly flexible immune system present in bacteria for combating viruses and other foreign DNA invaders have been revealed by researchers from New Zealand's University of Otago and the Netherlands.
Scientists have made an important advance in understanding how a subset of bacterial cells escape being killed by many antibiotics.
In the arms race between bacteria and modern medicine, bacteria have gained an edge. In recent decades, bacterial resistance to antibiotics has developed faster than the production of new antibiotics, making bacterial infections ...
Using quantitative models of bacterial growth, a team of UC San Diego biophysicists has discovered the bizarre way by which antibiotic resistance allows bacteria to multiply in the presence of antibiotics, a growing health ...
