Bacteria form biofilms like settlers form cities
Microbiologists have long adopted the language of human settlement to describe how bacteria live and grow: They "invade" and "colonize." Relations dwelling in close proximity are "colonies."
Bacteria hiding in indoor dust could spread antibiotic resistance
Bacteria enter our homes, gyms and workspaces by hitching rides on our skin or blowing in through an open door. Once inside, these invader microbes might help indoor germs in the surrounding dust become resistant to antibiotics, a new study suggests.
Why isn't there a vaccine for staph?
Staph bacteria, the leading cause of potentially dangerous skin infections, are most feared for the drug-resistant strains that have become a serious threat to public health. Attempts to develop a vaccine against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) have failed to outsmart the superbug's ubiquity and adaptability to antibiotics.
Vaping may have similar effects to smoking on harmful lung bacteria
E-cigarette vapor may have similar effects to cigarette smoke on bacteria associated with smoking-related illness such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and asthma, according to a study published in Respiratory Research.
Some gut bacteria may increase bowel cancer risk, research suggests
Bacteria in the gut might influence the chance of developing bowel cancer, research suggests, in the latest study to link human health to the microbes within.
Bacteria dislodged by Scottish hospital decontamination work
Work to clean up a hospital bacteria outbreak inadvertently led to more contamination, new documents reveal.
Flesh-eating bacteria in Florida waters
After two more cases of flesh-eating bacteria infections were reported from Florida waters recently, Tampa Bay area physicians are warning residents and visitors to be careful swimming in brackish water or eating uncooked seafood.
New food supplement made from bacteria fights metabolic syndrome
Scientists have now confirmed what they previously tested in mice: The benefits of a bacterium for cardiometabolic health.
Gut bacteria can alter how well medication works
Recent research revealed that gut microbes can alter how a medication works in our bodies, sometimes with undesirable — or even toxic — results.
Scientists want to make fuel, plastic out of bacteria
As they reproduce or perish, photosynthesizing bacteria, known as cyanobacteria, collectively release hundreds of millions of tons of liquid hydrocarbons into the ocean every year.
Eating more fruit, vegetables is more efficient way of improving gut bacteria
Improving gut bacteria could help curb anxiety, according to a review of medical studies.
Scientists develop device to detect bacteria in minutes, not days
The era of doctors prescribing patients powerful antibiotics while they wait for lab reports could soon be numbered, with a new device returning results within minutes instead of days.
NASA alert: ISS infested with bacteria which could harm astronauts
The International Space Station (ISS) is packed full of bacteria and fungi that could potentially be harmful to astronauts, a new study has found.
Physicists developed a new method to identify antibiotics-resistant bacteria
A team of physicists from Immanuel Kant Baltic State University suggested a method to quickly identify single antibiotic-resistant bacteria cells that are the agents of tuberculosis.
