Diabetic Foot Disorders: The Inherent Risk in Diabetic patients

Diabetic foot disorder (abnormalities) is clearly one of the most important complications of diabetes mellitus (DM) and is the leading cause of hospitalization with substantial morbidity , impairment of quality of life and engender high treatment costs[1]. The term diabetic foot disorders DFDs refers to a group of disorders which clinically present with one or

A Newly Discovered Bacterial Family May Become a Weapon in The Fight Against Malaria

A new family of bacteria that are common in malaria mosquitoes has been described by researchers at Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) and Uppsala University in Sweden, Justus-Liebig-Universität Giessen, Germany, and the Veterinärmedizinische Universität, Austria. Now, attempts are made to use these bacteria in the fight against malaria. A brand new bacterial family, which

Mothers Can Pass Traits to Offspring Through Bacterias DNA

It’s a firmly established fact straight from Biology 101: Traits such as eye color and height are passed from one generation to the next through the parents’ DNA But now, a new study in mice by researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis has shown that the DNA of bacteria that live

Neem Extract Proved To Be Best Treatment Agent For Pancreatic Cancer

Indian tree Neem (Azadirachta indica) is well known and famous medicinal plant commonly found in India is again proved to be best agent for treatment of pancreatic cancer. Researcher from Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso recently published a research study over concern concept. Scientists targetedNimbolide  a compound found in neem leaves which

Compounds Derived From Marine Micro Organism Play An Important Role Against Drug Resistant Bacteria In Clinical Infections

Researcher from University of Michigan recently published a research study which opens mysterious thoughts over Marine microbes. Researcher suggests an antibiofilm compound derived from marine microbes shows an effective role against drug resistant bacteria in hospital related infections. The important findings published in Feb. 16 in Nature Communications. According to researcher, "This is why preventing

Camel Alpaca Antibodies Target Anticancer Viruses Directly to Tumors

Using antibodies from camels and alpacas, scientists at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have found a way to deliver anticancer viruses directly to tumor cells, leaving other types of cells uninfected.The research appears Feb. 18 in Molecular Therapy—Oncolytics. The scientists showed that unlike human antibodies or those of most other animals, the

Retracing The Roots of Fungal Symbioses

With apologies to the poet John Donne, and based on recent work from the U.S. Department of Energy Joint Genome Institute (DOE JGI), a DOE Office of Science user facility, it can be said that no plant is an island, entire of itself. Unseen by the human eye, plants interact with many species of fungi

Antibiotics Give Rise to New Communities of Harmful Bacteria

Most people have taken an antibiotic to treat a bacterial infection. Now researchers from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the University of San Diego, La Jolla, reveal that the way we often think about antibiotics — as straightforward killing machines — needs to be revised. The work, led by Elizabeth Shank,

Could An HIV Drug Beat Strep Throat Flesh Eating Bacteria

With antibiotic resistance on the rise, scientists are looking for innovative ways to combat bacterial infections. The pathogen that causes conditions from strep throat to flesh-eating disease is among them, but scientists have now found a tool that could help them fight it: a drug approved to treat HIV. Their work, appearing in the journalACS

Possible Biological Trigger for Canine Bone Cancer Found

Rsearchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Veterinary Medicine (SVM) have identified the biological mechanism that may give some cancer cells the ability to form tumors in dogs.The recent study uncovered an association between the increased expression of a particular gene in tumor cells and more aggressive behavior in a form of canine bone

Bird Flu New Compound Protects 100 Percent of Ferrets Mice From H5N1

Since 2003, the H5N1 influenza virus, more commonly known as the bird flu, has been responsible for the deaths of millions of chickens and ducks and has infected more than 650 people, leading to a 60 percent mortality rate for the latter. Luckily, this virus has yet to achieve human-to-human transmission, but a small number
