Ammonia filtration case study

Ammonia filtration is key to efficient antibiotics production at fermentation plant

Determining antibiotic residues in foodstuffs

Genevac EZ-2 evaporator estimated to save the laboratory 2-3 hours per day that previously was spent on evaporation tasks

Causal link between antibiotics and childhood asthma dismissed

New study dismisses claims of link between antibiotics and childhood asthma

Targeted antibiotic use may help cure chronic myeloid leukaemia

Researchers showed that treatment with tigecycline is effective in killing CML stem cells when used in combination with imatinib

More evidence on link between antibiotic use and antibiotic resistance

Report presents new data on antibiotic consumption and antibiotic resistance and reflects improved surveillance across Europe

Antibiotics may increase eczema risk in children, study reveals

Use of antibiotics in early life may increase the risk of developing eczema by up to 40 per cent, according to a new study involving researchers from The University of Nottingham, in the British Journal of Dermatology.

Scientists pave the way for vaccine to combat devastating avian disease

Recent reduction in the use of antibiotic growth promoters in animal feeds has resulted in a dramatic increase in the severe poultry disease - necrotic enteritis.

Antibiotics available in M I C E strip format

For the accurate determination of minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) values, says Thermo Fisher Scientific

Limiting the spread of antibiotics

Research by scientists at the University of Missouri Center for Agroforestry suggests that buffer strips of grasses and other plants can trap and break down veterinary antibiotics in manure fertilisers.

Fear of lawsuits prompts overprescription of antibiotics

Medical liability concerns may be playing a role in the increase of MRSA in health-care settings by encouraging clinicians to prescribe antibiotics more often and more broadly than warranted.

Antibiotics laced dissolving dressing

A scientist has developed a new wound dressing based on fibres she engineered - fibers that can be loaded with drugs like antibiotics to speed up the healing process, and then dissolve when they've done their job.

Robot-dependent antibiotics

In an advance that could help ease the antibiotic drought, scientists are describing successful use of a test that enlists pinhead-sized worms in efforts to discover badly needed new antibiotics.

Medical antibiotics harm the gut

Scientists have shown for the first time that two different types of antibiotics can cause moderate to wide-ranging changes in the ranks of these helpful microbes in the gut.

Cutting over-prescribing of antibiotics

Improving communications skills and the use of a simple blood test could help cut the growing number of inappropriate prescriptions of antibiotics, a joint Cardiff University trial has discovered.

Genetic switch potential key to new class of antibiotics

Researchers have determined the structure of a key genetic mechanism at work in bacteria, including some that are deadly to humans, in an important step toward the design of a new class of antibiotics.

Plunging new depths in hunt for life-saving antibiotics

The hunt for new life-saving antibiotics is taking researchers to some of the deepest and coldest places on Earth. Led by the University of Aberdeen, scientists from across Europe will probe previously untapped oceanic trenches in the Arctic and Antarctic to collect and screen samples of mud and sediment.

Antibiotics based on a new principle may defeat MRSA

Scientists at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden have presented a new principle for fighting bacterial infections, in other words, a new type of antibiotic, in the medical journal FASEB. The new antibiotic mechanism is based on selectively blocking the thioredoxin system in the cells, which is crucial to the growth of certain bacteria.

Neutrons help explain why antibiotics prescribed for chemotherapy cause kidney failure

Neutron scattering experiments have provided new insights into the origin of the side effects of an antifungal drug prescribed all over the world. The analysis conducted by scientists at King's College London and the Institut Laue-Langevin in Grenoble follows 40 years of debate and could help drug developers reduce these harmful complications.

Antibiotics that don't trigger resistance

Researchers are developing a new generation of antibiotic compounds that do not provoke bacterial resistance. The compounds work against two notorious microbes: Vibrio cholerae and E. coli 0157:H7.
