Research May Help Rescue Antibiotics’ Effectiveness in the Face of Drug-Resistant Bacteria

Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center

Bacteria—especially Gram-negative strains—are becoming increasingly resistant to current antibiotic drugs, and the development of new classes of antibiotics has slowed. Faced with these challenges, investigators are studying the potential of combination therapy, in which two or more drugs are used together to increase or restore the efficacy of both drugs against a resistant bacterial pathogen. Now new research indicates that such synergy may work even when bacteria become resistant to colistin, which is considered a treatment agent of last resort.

Global Funding for Adolescent Health Misses the Target

Harvard Medical School

Adolescents make up more than a quarter of the population in developing countries. Only 1.6 percent of global development assistance for health from 2003-2016 went to adolescent health. Resource allocation failed to address many of the diseases that take the worst toll on adolescent health, such as depressive disorders, anemia and injuries.

Scientists Develop a Way to Monitor Cellular Decision Making

Harvard Medical School

Scientists have designed a way to monitor cellular decision making by measuring the rate of RNA change over time. RNA is the “interpreter” or “decoder” of genetic instructions that tell cells how much of which protein to make. The new method is an algorithm that quantifies changes in various RNA markers—the molecular footprints of a cell’s past and present and an indicator of its future, providing clues about what the cell is trying to become. The approach sets the stage for understanding cellular behavior during human development and may offer a way to rapidly monitor how cells respond to medications and other treatments.

Hearing Class

Harvard Medical School

A new study finds that the class of neurons responsible for transmitting information from the inner ear to the brain is composed of three molecularly distinct subtypes. The findings could inform efforts to develop therapeutic strategies to treat or protect against hearing loss.
