Researchers Crack Genome of Feared Pneumonia Bacteria
Most of us are familiar with microscopic bacteria as the cause for illnesses and infections of the ear, urinary tract, bladder, kidney, skin, and the respiratory tract which includes sore throats, sinusitis, and pneumonia. Bacteria usually aren’t associated with good news and are regularly e...
Cure asthma using research linking asthma to the bacteria Chlamydia pneumoniae and mycoplasma
Researchers are developing a promising alternative to antibiotic treatment for infections caused by Klebsiella pneumoniae bacteria resistant to carbapenem antibiotics. The approach uses antibodies to target the K. pneumoniae protective capsule polysaccharide, allowing immune system cells called neutrophils to attack and kill the bacteria. The early stage, in vitro research was conducted by scientists at NIAID’s Rocky Mountain Laboratories and the New Jersey Medical School-Rutgers University.
Hemorrhoids, is the result of your constant straining during bowel movements. But a more precise description of this is the fact that, they are clumps or perhaps masses of tissue in the arschfick canal which has the blood vessel, supporting the tissue.
Klebsiella pneumoniae bacteria. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of Klebsiella pneumoniae bacteria with a neutrophil, a type of white blood cell involved in defence against bacterial infections. K. pneumoniae is one of several bacteria that can cause pneumonia (lung inflammation). It causes a severe form that can be a complication of chronic lung diseases. K. pneumoniae is also a multidrug resistant bacterium that can cause severe hospital-acquired infections.
The first report of colistin-heteroresistant bacteria (K. pneumoniae) in the U.S. that led to colistin treatment (last-line therapy) failure in a murine model of infection. The data are worrisome especially since the colistin heteroresistance was not detected by current diagnostic tests.
