Proteins: Hot on the Trail of Metabolic Diseases and Resistance to Antibiotics

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[29/03/2012] Proteins belonging to the large and important family of ABC transporters have been associated with metabolic diseases and can cause resistance to antibiotics. Biochemists from the University of Zurich have succeeded in determining the atomic structure of a new ABC transporter. The insights gained could give rise to new therapies to treat multi-resistant bacteria, cystic fibrosis or gout.Proteins: Hot on the Trail of Metabolic Diseases and Resistance to Antibiotics - Read more

Diagnosis Sepsis: “The risk of patients dying from sepsis increases the longer the diagnosis takes”

[01/02/2012] On the website of the German Sepsis Society (Deutsche Sepsis-Gesellschaft) you can find the following definition for the disease called sepsis: A modern definition of sepsis was published in 1989 by Bone. He wrote: Sepsis is defined as an invasion of microorganisms and / or their toxins into the blood stream along with the reaction of the organism to the invasion.Diagnosis Sepsis: “The risk of patients dying from sepsis increases the longer the diagnosis takes” - Read more

[17/01/2012] Doctor Kathleen Anders and Professor Thomas Blankenstein of the Max Delbrück Centre (MDC) Berlin-Buch and researchers of the Beckman Research Institute of the City of Hope Cancer Centre in Duarte, California, USA showed that drug-based cancer treatment and adoptive T cell therapy are both highly effective against large tumours.T Cells Therapy: How Immune Cells Destroy Cancer Cells - Read more

Antibiotics: Common Treatments Can Lead to Resistance

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[21/09/2011] Overexposure to antibiotics has long been a concern in the medical community – most specifically the development of antibiotic resistant infections as a result of repeated use. According to a study, ophthalmologic antibiotics promote antimicrobial resistance too, prompting a call from Vanderbilt Eye Institute physicians to be more judicial in the administration of certain classes of antibiotics.Antibiotics: Common Treatments Can Lead to Resistance - Read more

[14/01/2011] Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research develop materials that will reduce the risk of inflammations after operations or in wounds. To this end, the scientists work in cooperation with nine other research centers and industrial partners in the EMBEK1 project. The project is designed for three years and is funded with 2.8 Million Euro by the European Union.Research: Germ Reducing Implants - Read more
