Research May Help Rescue Antibiotics’ Effectiveness in the Face of Drug-Resistant Bacteria

Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center

Bacteria—especially Gram-negative strains—are becoming increasingly resistant to current antibiotic drugs, and the development of new classes of antibiotics has slowed. Faced with these challenges, investigators are studying the potential of combination therapy, in which two or more drugs are used together to increase or restore the efficacy of both drugs against a resistant bacterial pathogen. Now new research indicates that such synergy may work even when bacteria become resistant to colistin, which is considered a treatment agent of last resort.

Rutgers Discovery That Changed the World May Become New Jersey’s State Microbe

Rutgers University-New Brunswick

A soil-based bacterium called Streptomyces griseus could become New Jersey’s official state microbe 75 years after Rutgers University–New Brunswick scientists discovered its ability to cure tuberculosis. The 1943 discovery at the New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station defined Rutgers’ role as a leader in antibiotic research and had a profound impact on global health.

Combined Approach Offers Hope to Lung Cancer Patients Who Become Resistant to Drugs

Weizmann Institute of Science

Drug resistance is an all-too-common occurrence in cancer treatment. Now, working with physicians at Chaim Sheba Medical Center, the Weizmann Institute of Science’s Prof. Yossi Yarden has identified a three-drug combo that fends off drug resistance in lung cancer. This is particularly promising, as two of the medications are already in use.

Iowa State University Will Lead New, National Institute to Fight Antimicrobial Resistance

Iowa State University

Iowa State will lead a national institute to address a global public health concern. The new Institute for Antimicrobial Resistance Research and Education builds upon a partnership with the USDA Agricultural Research Service, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, University of Nebraska Medical Center, the University of Iowa, Mayo Clinic and many other researchers, educators, clinicians and extension personnel. APLU and AAVMC announced the institute, which stems from a recommendation by a joint task force. The Institute for Antimicrobial Resistance Research and Education will be housed at Iowa State and funded by ISU and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

Bacterial Communities Use Sophisticated Strategy to Communicate over Long Distances

University of California San Diego

“Percolation” theory is helping explain how communities of bacteria can effectively relay signals across long distances. Once regarded as simple microorganisms, communities of bacteria have been found to employ a strategy we use to brew coffee and extract oil from the sea. Percolation helps the microscopic community thrive and survive threats.
