Bioartificial kidney under study at MCG

... perform their endless task, which makes them easy targets in the ICU, Dr. Szerlip explains. As examples, kidneys can become ischemic and begin to fail if blood pressure drops because of a long surgery with significant blood loss. Infection can further reduce blood flow to the kidneys. Ironically, some antib...

Scientists find missing enzyme for tuberculosis iron scavenging pathway

... tuberculosis has prompted the search for new drug targets and a better understanding of the mechanism of resistance in this bacterium. Several spans of DNA in the M. tuberculosis genome have been annotated as antibiotic resistance genes due to their sequence similarity to existing antibiotic resistance gen...

Because the insects have never encountered chemicals that behave like spider toxins, they will most likely lack resistance to bioinsecticides derived from funnel-web venom. Another strategy is to insert a gene for encod...
