Making Good Bacteria Better, and Easy to Track, Thanks to Genetic Engineering

GV-Bacteria-Illustrationpost.jpg

Using an approach that combines ultrasound imaging and genetic engineering of bacterial microbes, a team from California Institute of Technology (Caltech), with funding from the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB), has created a powerful new system to track bacteria dispatched to deliver therapies deep inside the body.

Researchers have data that diabetes impairs removal of dead heart-muscle cells by macrophages after heart attacks, and that exosomes can improve this removal. Impaired removal may be the reason diabetes increases the risk for cardiovascular disease, including heart failure.

CF researchers have now shown that the lungs’ bacterial population changes in the first few years of life as respiratory infections and inflammation set in. This research offers a way to predict the onset of lung disease and suggests a larger role for preventive therapies, such as hypertonic saline.

Length of Opioid Prescription, Number of Refills Spell Highest Risk for Misuse After Surgery

GabrielBrat20160907_06.jpg

With opioid overdoses now a leading cause of nonintentional death in the United States, data show most of these deaths can be traced back to an initial prescription opioid. A new study led by investigators at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) and Harvard Medical School (HMS) sheds light on the possible link between physicians’ opioid prescription patterns and subsequent abuse.
