Researchers are investigating how phage resistance helps control the emergence of dominant Salmonella strains

Researchers are investigating how phage resistance helps control the emergence of dominant Salmonella strains

Researchers from the Quadram Institute and the University of East Anglia have revealed how resistance helped drive the emergence of dominant strains Salmonella. In addition to antimicrobial resistance, resistance to bacteriophages may give these bugs a boost, at least in the short term. With the rise of antimicrobial resistance, new ways to fight disease-causing bacteria …

Gene mutations in tumors affect radiation sensitivity

Gene mutations in tumors affect radiation sensitivity

A new Northwestern Medicine study identifies common and rare gene mutations that affect resistance and sensitivity to radiation, an important step toward providing more individualized and effective radiation therapy for cancer patients. Radiotherapy continues to be delivered using generic schedules and doses, as opposed to newer targeted drug therapy that is guided by the genomics …
