A new class of antibiotics to fight against drug resistant superbugs

Scientists trawling through thousands of soil samples have discovered a whole new class of antibiotics capable of killing drug-resistant bacteria. The chemical, which has been called malacidin, appears to be non-toxic in humans and effective in tackling the hospital superbug MRSA, raising hopes that it could be used to develop a new treatment. www.inkl.com/newsletters/morning-edition/news/new-type-of-antibiotic-discovered-in-soil-in-breakthrough-for-fight-against-drug-resistant-superbugs?

Getting in early with alzheimers

An international team of scientists have just completed the first step in developing a blood test that can predict whether you have an increased likelihood of developing Alzheimer’s – working up to 20 years before symptoms develop. Two scientists from CSIRO helped validate the test… with the power of imaging and biostatistics. This research may translate into more efficient trials for treatment and prevention in coming years. https://blog.csiro.au/bloody-data-biostatistics-first-blood-test-alzheimers

An answer to baldness?

Japanese scientists have developed a way to grow hair follicles at a record rate. The study reported in Biomaterials used two kinds of cells placed in silicone containers to cultivate “hair follicle germs” — the sources of the tiny organs that grow and sustain hair. Led by professor Junji Fukuda at the Yokohama National University, the team managed to cultivate 5,000 within just a few days, enough to replenish hair. The method is a massive step up from existing laborious techniques that can create just 50 or so “germs” at once. www.inkl.com/newsletters/morning-edition/news/dealing-with-baldness-this-japanese-hair-growth-solution-could-be-the-answer?

Testing drugs on worms

Drug discovery is an expensive process because drugs need to be tested for effectiveness and side effects on animals (usually mice) before they can proceed to a human trial. A high proportion of drugs fail during the animal testing, making it a very expensive process. A US company called NemaMetrix has come up with a way to test drugs on Nematode worms. They modify the DNA of the worms with human DNA which NemaMetrix says makes the testing process relevant to 80% of human diseases including cancer, alzheimers, depression, cardiac arrhythmia and others. They can also tailor the DNA of the worm to a particular variant of a disease that an individual has, which makes their system cost effective for drug discovery for rare diseases. Once they have modified the worm’s DNA they stick it into a proprietary measurement system which electrically monitors the worm’s vital signs while the drug is administered and that enables them to track changes and the effectiveness of the drug. Techniques such as these promise new drug discoveries and lower cost drugs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mHp9_ucc5V0&feature=youtu.be

A blood test that’s a breakthrough for detecting cancer

Scientists have created a blood test that can detect eight of the most common cancers long before they turn lethal, in a breakthrough that could save millions of people from premature death. The “liquid biopsy” identifies early-stage tumours from proteins and genetic mutations circulating in the blood. Called CancerSEEK, the test delivers almost no false positives, sparing patients needless heartache and unnecessary medical procedures for non-existent diseases. http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/health-science/blood-tests-deliver-cancer-breakthrough/news-story/8874f0bd0d4b4eea680892d421c2f12c

An implantable artificial kidney

There are 2 million people in the world who require kidney dialysis every week to clean their blood. This is a time-consuming and cumbersome process, without which you die. A team at the University of California, San Francisco, has developed the first implantable artificial kidney, that can be connected to your circulatory system and bladder to clean your blood 24 hours a day. After 20 years of development, the Kidney Project is due to start clinical trials in early 2018. https://pharm.ucsf.edu/kidney
