Role of Bacteria in Bowel cancer

After identifying that antibiotics prevented the formation of polyp, the scientists tried to feed the antibiotic-treated mice stool from their untreated counterparts to examine, if only bacteria may reverse the drug consequences.  Once ingesting the gut bacterium from the untreated mice, the once germ-free mice developed polyps.

The researchers additionally transplanted early embryos of the transgenic mice into females of another, cancer-free mouse strain, Swiss Webster. During birth they are inoculated with the bacterium of their surrogate mothers, the mice which are transplanted didn’t develop tumors until they reach twenty five weeks, while the genetically identical controls had tumors by twelve weeks. This showed that little changes within the gut microbiota could have a large influence on tumour growth.

When the scientists examined the bowels of the animal, they identified that bacterium had invaded the connections between the epithelial cells and intestinal epithelial tissue, which is indicated by the cell adhesion molecules presence, as well as weakening of E-cadherin, wherever the polyps had shaped, when compared with adjacent tissue. The researchers additionally discovered an upregulation of inflammatory molecules close to the polyps.

Stem Cells : A Shelter for TB

90% of TB infections are cleared by the body’s immune defenses or by taking anti-TB medication. In the remaining 10% of cases, TB persists as a dormant, non-replicating infection. Although latent TB infections don’t cause symptoms, they can activate after years of activity. An calculable one-third of the world population has latent TB, that accounts for 1.7 million deaths per year—more than any other bacterial pathogen on the earth.

During the first stages of the illness, active TB bacterium replicate within human macrophages and nerve fibre cells. however there’s no proof these cells harbor dormant TB, and the location of the latent reservoir has remained a mystery.

Clinical Microbiology

Finally, the investigators came to an endemic TB region—Arunachal Pradesh, India—to collect human bone marrow from 9 patients World Health Organization had contracted TB, however had been successfully treated with “DOTS”—a World Health Organization -endorsed, multistep medical care. CD271-positive BM-MSCs has been isolated by researchers with magnetic sorting, and found that these cells were positive for TB deoxyribonucleic acid in eight out of the nine patients. Furthermore, 2 of the TB-positive bone marrow samples yielded viable bacterium.

While previous studies have detected TB deoxyribonucleic acid in different cell varieties, including epithelial/endothelial, fibrocytes, adipocytes, this can be the primary demonstration of viable TB being isolated from patients with latent infection.

Diabetic Foot Ulcers Prevention

The potential impact of a diabetic foot ulcer has been widely recorded. Based on work that appeared in the European Journal of Vascular & Endovascular Surgery, researchers determined that 85% of all amputations performed on individuals with diabetes began with a foot ulcer. With that in mind, a four-pronged approach could be the key to preventing the ulcers and reducing the possibilities of complications.

The four keys to diabetic foot lesion prevention were elaborated by researchers in a study revealed on consultant 360 and included:

  • Patient education.
  • Foot skin and toenail care.
  • Selection of appropriate Footwear.
  • Proactive surgical interventions.

Researchers aforementioned these points were crucial to not only preventing diabetic foot lesions, however decrease the possibilities of a continual foot ulcer. Let’s look nearer at the four keys to preventing diabetic foot ulcers.


Patient Education:

In educating patients on diabetic foot ulcers, researchers mentioned the practitioner plays a significant role as he or she is in control of the management of medical services delivery. They’ll inform patients of the danger factors that precede a diabetic foot ulceration and will conjointly advise them on weight management, watching blood glucose levels and maintenance like keeping feet clean and moisturized, having calluses removed by professionals and wearing clean socks.

Foot Skin and Toenail Care:

Because diabetic patients will have nervous system dysfunctions, their skin is significantly at risk of dryness and suffer from a loss of elasticity and additional probably to create calluses at the location of the recovered wound. These and alternative factors (skin fragility, repetitive contact pressure, etc.) create diabetes patients additional liable to foot ulcers. Toenails are areas of concern as they will develop fungal infections or become dysmorphic or ingrown, making a sore which will later become ulcerous. The Diabetic Foot Council recommends clinicians perform a comprehensive foot test yearly.

Protective Footwear:

An American Diabetes Association report highlights the effectiveness of protecting footwear. the danger factors present and any deformities within the foot can confirm the extent of protecting footwear that’s required or suggested for diabetic patients. additionally, the location of the wound (or of past wounds) and any peripheral artery disease ought to even be considered. The protecting footwear might involve soft inserts, arch support and bigger toe boxes and will either be industrial, non-prescription shoes accessible in shops or special footwear that’s custom shaped.

Proactive Surgeries:

Finally, having surgery done before a diabetic foot lesion develops are often a prospering prevention measure, consistent with the researchers. They explicit that an underlying bone deformity, inadequate blood flow and an unresolved infection deep within the foot are often the rationale several diabetic foot ulcers fail to heal. All 3 are often managed by surgical techniques as suggested by a practitioner and blood flow may be improved by hyperbaric oxygen treatments.

New drug targets antibiotic resistant  bacteria’ found in UTIs

Researchers have developed a new active compound to fight against viable drug resistant bacteria to cure life-threatening urinary tract infections.

Drug-resistant Urinary tract infections are a major problem, the result  from recent Public Health England analysis shows most of the bacteria causing UTI infection where resistant to  trimethoprim a commercially used antibiotic to fight against the UTI.

The microRNA miR-192/215 family is upregulated in mucinous female internal reproductive organ carcinomas

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are non-coding RNAs with numerous biological functions. They play a vital regulative role by targeting specific mRNAs for degradation or translation repression. In thus doing, they will influence the development and/or progression of some forms of pathologic process as several transcripts square measure affected at the same time, resulting in profound alteration of signaling pathways.
