Probiotics are mostly useless and can actually hurt you

13.09.2018. Zanimljivosti
Probiotics are living micro-organisms that are taken by millions of people to boost their microbiome or to restore their gut ecosystem after a dose of antibiotics. Yet questions remain about whether they actually work.

For The First Time, Scientists Have Caught Bacteria “Fishing” For DNA From Their Dead Friends

16.06.2018. Zanimljivosti
Bacteria are slippery little suckers. They evolve rapidly, developing resistance to antibiotics and therefore becoming increasingly difficult to deal with. Now, for the first time, researchers have caught on film one of the mechanisms the microbes use for this speedy evolution.

Potential weapons for the battle against antibiotic resistance discovered

06.12.2017. Zanimljivosti

The bacterium Pseudomonas aeruginosa can produce specific molecular factors that dramatically increase or decrease an antibiotic's ability to kill Staphylococcus aureus, another bacterium that often co-infects with P. aeruginosa. The findings point to the possibility of new antibiotics employing these factors to enhance antibiotic susceptibility.

New tool to distinguish between viral, bacterial infections

01.08.2017. Zanimljivosti

Antibiotics are lifesaving drugs, but overuse is leading to antibiotic resistance, one of the world's most pressing health threats. Scientists identified 11 genetic markers in blood that accurately distinguished between viral and bacterial infections 80 to 90 percent of the time. The finding is important because physicians don't have a good way to confirm bacterial infections like pneumonia and more-often-than-not default to an antibiotic.

A naturally occurring clay shows promise as an antibiotic

05.07.2017. Zanimljivosti

Julian Davies (University of British Columbia) and his team tested the clay as an antibiotic against various bacteria. “It’s been almost all surprises since then,” he says. Solutions of the clay can kill 16 different strains of multidrug-resistant bacteria that commonly infect hospital patients!

Moćni mikrobi – prikaz knjige Mighty Microbes – The Amazing World of Microorganisms

Skupina znanstvenika i popularizatora znanosti iz Nizozemske se s ovom idejom pozabavila kroz fundaciju Microcanoni, nizozemsku inačicu projekta naziva „Što doista trebate znati o mikrobiologiji“ još 2011. Ta verzija prezentirana je i u amsterdamskom muzeju Artis Micropia, a djelo na engleskome čiji vam prikaz donosim je korak dalje koji je ova skupina ljudi poduzela u ulozi urednika knjige s naslovom Mighty Microbes i podnsalovom The Amazing World of Microorganisms. Osmislili su građu podijeljenu u devet tematskih cjelina, a unutar svake je pet do deset poglavlja (tema) za koje su kao autore ili suautore odabrali znanstvenike koji su sudjelovali u ključnim otkrićima ili su istaknuti stručnjaci u tom području.
