Melanoma: Antibiotics that damage the gut microbiome can make it worse

Share on PinterestA study in mice found that antibiotics that harm the gut microbiome can make melanoma worse. Douglas Sacha/Getty Images The researchers examined the growth of melanoma-induced tumors in the bones of mice treated with antibiotics that harm the gut microbiome. They found that the number of bone tumor cells was greater in antibiotic-treated …

Improved nanoscale drills kill bacteria directly and revive existing antibiotics

Molecular machines that kill infectious bacteria have been designed to work with a more clinically useful light source of energy. The latest iterations of these synthetic nanoscale or molecular machinery (MM), developed by researchers at Rice University, are activated by visible light rather than ultraviolet (UV), as in earlier versions. Tests of burn-related bacterial infections …
