Edible bivalves as a source of human pathogens: signals between vibrios and the bivalve host.

...environmental factors are well known to affect the persistence of vibrios in these organisms, the key role of the interactions between vibrios and the immune system of bivalves has been recently highlighted by scientists from the Universities of Genova and Urbino (Italy) in Environmental Microbiology.

Scientists track stealth DNA elements in primate evolution

... themselves capable of substantial propagation and persistence over time. However, prior evidence from the Ya5 subfamily indicated that at least some "master" Alu elements may persist in low-copy numbers for long periods of evolutionary time without retrotranspositional activity, suggesting that the mechanisms o...

Doctors should stop prescribing antibiotics for the common cold, review advises

...ibiotics did no better in terms of lack of cure or persistence of symptoms than those on placebo," Arroll says. The goal of the study, according to the authors, was to determine if antibiotics reduce general cold symptoms such as sneezing, inflammation of the nose and throat; if antibiotics have any effect on p...

Use of high hydrostatic pressure to inactivate Hepatitis A virus in oysters studied

...ies have demonstrated remarkable concentration and persistence of HAV in shellfish exposed to the virus through their surrounding seawater. Even with depuration, HAV may persist in oysters for several weeks after exposure. The virus also is fairly resistant to heating and may remain viable in shellfish after up ...

The reason why antiviral therapy can't annihilate HIV infection, and what to do about it

... infected, resting CD4+ T cells contributes to the persistence of HIV and initiation of new infection cycles, co-administration of an effective and safe reagent that is capable of dampening cellular activation could minimize the spread of virions to uninfected bystander cells. ...

MRSA use amoeba to spread, new research shows

...in hospitals, they are likely to contribute to the persistence of MRSA in the hospital environment". "Adding to the concern is that amoebal cysts have been shown to trap pathogens and could potentially be dispersed widely by air currents, especially when they are dry. "Replication of MRSA in amoeba and other p...

New study explores beetle species with two forms of females

...ican Naturalist attempts to explain the mysterious persistence of two forms of females in many diving beetle populations. Their findings have important implications for theories of sexual conflict, which arises when the costs and benefits of multiple matings differ for males and females. "The male versus fema...

Botox could help target resistant tumors for treatment

Vaccine combined with short-term postexposure antibiotics protects monkeys from inhalational anthrax

... Animal experiments have confirmed the prolonged persistence of spores and incubation period after aerosol exposure. In one study, rhesus macaques were protected during a 30-day course of antibiotics after aerosol exposure. However, some animals developed fatal infection after the antibiotic therapy was disco...
