Pneumonia could be treated with drugs for cystic fibrosis

Researchers from Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin discovered that cystic fibrosis medication may be useful in treating pneumonia after discovering the molecular pathways that cause fluid buildup in the lungs. SARS-CoV-2 and pneumococcal pathogens can cause severe pneumonia. If the airways get clogged, the patient is in danger of developing acute respiratory distress syndrome. Researchers from Charité […]

U.S. life expectancy falls to decades lowest level

According to recent CDC data, life expectancy in the United States fell once more in 2021 after dropping historically in 2020, to its lowest level in decades. The average American could anticipate living till the age of 76 in 2021, down from 77 in 2020 and 79 in 2019. This represents the largest 2-year fall […]

Fabimycin demonstrated potential in the fight against more than 200 antibiotic-resistant microorganisms

The results of this study appear inACS Central Science. Bacterial antimicrobial resistance (AMR) occurs when bacteria mutate over time and no longer respond to antibiotics, making infections more difficult to treat and increasing the risk of disease spread, severe illness, and death. Scientists have described infections due to antibiotic-resistant bacteria as a threat to modern […]

The evolution of E. coli bacteria is the subject of a recent study

New evidence shows that genetic material from E. coli in farm animals may have contributed to the evolution of dangerous pandemic strains of E. coli in humans. Escherichia coli (E. coli) is a type of bacteria that can be found in the environment, foods, and the intestines of humans and animals. E. coli is a […]

AI diagnostic tool to detect COVID-related Lung damage

A new computer-aided diagnostic tool developed by King Abdullah University of Science & Technology (KAUST) scientists could help overcome some of the challenges of monitoring lung health following viral infection. The new method developed by KAUST known as Deep-Lung Parenchyma-Enhancing (DLPE) overlays artificial intelligence algorithms on top of standard chest imaging data to […]
