Scientists have revealed a way to eradicate parasitic worms by stopping them from using alternative metabolism pathways provided by bacteria that live within them, according to new findings.
Scientists have developed a synthetic peptide that can make multidrug-resistant bacteria sensitive to antibiotics again when used together with traditional antibiotics, offering hope for the prospect of a combination treatment strategy to tackle certain antibiotic-tolerant infections. On its own, the synthetic antimicrobial peptide can also kill bacteria that have grown resistant to antibiotics.

(The Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST)) KAIST researchers have been able to dial up and down creatures’ lifespans by altering the activity of proteins found in roundworm cells that tell them to convert sugar into energy when their cellular energy is running low. Humans also have these proteins, offering up the intriguing possibilities for developing longevity-promoting drugs. These new findings were published on July 1 in Science Advances.
Possible Breakthrough in Alzheimerâs Research: âLove Drugâ Oxytocin Found to Reverse Damage in Mice Brains
Scientists are hopeful their discovery might be a breakthrough in Alzheimer’s research, after oxytocin is found to reverse cognitive damage in mice brains.
Researchers have uncovered a new mechanism by which cancer cells adapt to the stresses they encounter as they grow and respond to therapies.
In a test of antiviral effectiveness against the virus that causes COVID-19, an extract from edible seaweeds substantially outperformed remdesivir, the current standard antiviral used to combat the disease.
