Bacteria can survive antibiotic treatment even without antibiotic resistance by slowing down their metabolism and going into a type of deep sleep.
The capacity of the human brain to recover and rewire itself peaks around two weeks after a stroke and diminishes over time, according to a new study.
Researchers found that epithelial cells — which collectively form the first tissue on the surface of an embryo — can recognise, ingest and destroy defective cells.
The physical origin of alcohol addiction has been located by researchers in a network of the human brain that regulates our response to danger.
Changing the gut microbiome can transform patients with advanced melanoma who never respond to immunotherapy into patients who do.
The genetic disposition for risk-taking is mapped in several areas of the brain, according to an international research team.
Bacteria in the gut can dull the efficacy of radiotherapy, a treatment received by about half of all cancer patients.
Early life experiences can have an outsized effect on brain development and neurobiological health — an effect that can be passed down to subsequent generations.
The new compounds combine direct antibiotic killing of pan drug-resistant bacterial pathogens with a simultaneous rapid immune response for combatting antimicrobial resistance.
Researchers have made an unexpected discovery about the protein actin — one that will spark efforts to produce new tailored therapies to kill cancer cells.
French scientists have found that an imbalance in the gut bacterial community can cause a reduction in some metabolites, resulting in depressive-like behaviours.
The RFRP neurons — a population of nerve cells near the base of the brain — become active in stressful situations and then suppress the reproductive system.
Researchers have detected a connection between Brachyspira, a genus of bacteria in the intestines, and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) — especially the form that causes diarrhoea.
An experimental Alzheimer's disease treatment is proving effective at treating some of the most persistent, life-threatening antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
Whereas adults process most discrete neural tasks in specific areas in one or the other of their brain's two hemispheres, infants and young children use both.
