Pluripotent bat stem cells as a model to study novel viruses

Bats have evolved with unique features such as laryngeal echolocation and flight, with some capable of tolerating viruses such as severe acute respiratory syndrome coronaviruses (SARS-CoVs), Middle East respiratory syndrome CoVs (MERS-CoVs), as well as Marburg and Nipah viruses. Developing…

New engineered peptides could prevent the superbug crisis

Infection with multidrug-resistant (MDR) organisms, such as Klebsiella pneumoniae, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Enterococcus faecium, Escherichia coli (ESKAPEE pathogens), Staphylococcus aureus, Enterobacter spp., and Acinetobacter baumannii, is a significant public health threat to the global population. However, at present, no drugs are available that can effectively resist MDR organisms. Study: Engineered…

Scientists develop a model human gut microbiome

A team of US-based scientists has developed a novel bacterial community comprising 119 microbial species naturally found in the human body. The study is published in the journal Cell.  Study: Design, construction, and in vivo augmentation of a complex gut…
