Combo of 3 antibiotics can kill deadly staph infections
Three antibiotics that, individually, are not effective against a drug-resistant staph infection can kill the deadly pathogen when combined as a trio, according to researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. They have killed the bug -- methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus -- in test tubes and laboratory mice, and believe the same strategy may work in people.

Scientist rescuing vast amounts of vital knowledge on remarkably small budget
A scientist at the University of Virginia School of Medicine is rescuing vast amounts of humanity's knowledge of the submicroscopic world from potential oblivion, making it more accessible than ever before and doing so on a budget many thought impossible. His new database will ultimately benefit not just his fellow scientists but also private industry and the battle against human disease.

Low vitamin D among the elderly is associated with decline in cognition, dementia
Vitamin D insufficiency among the elderly is highly correlated with accelerated cognitive decline and impaired performance, particularly in domains such as memory loss that are associated with Alzheimer's disease and dementia, researchers with the UC Davis Alzheimer's Disease Center and Rutgers University have found.

'Lab-on-a-Chip' technology to cut costs of sophisticated tests for diseases and disorders
Rutgers engineers have developed a breakthrough device that can significantly reduce the cost of sophisticated lab tests for medical disorders and diseases, such as HIV, Lyme disease and syphilis. The new device uses miniaturized channels and valves to replace 'benchtop' assays -- tests that require large samples of blood or other fluids and expensive chemicals that lab technicians manually mix in trays of tubes or plastic plates with cup-like depressions.

NIH renews $15 million systems vaccinology grant to Emory for improving vaccine success
The National Institutes of Health has awarded an Emory-led research consortium $15 million over five years for renewal of a grant aimed at better understanding and improving human immune responses to vaccination. The grant builds on the pioneering accomplishments of the research team over the past several years in developing 'systems biology' methods to accurately predict the efficacy of vaccination in humans, and providing new insights into the molecular mechanisms that drive effective immunity to vaccination.

Resveratrol impacts Alzheimer's disease biomarker
The largest nationwide clinical trial to study high-dose resveratrol long-term in people with mild to moderate Alzheimer's disease found that a biomarker that declines when the disease progresses was stabilized in people who took the purified form of resveratrol. Resveratrol is a naturally occurring compound found in foods such as red grapes, raspberries, dark chocolate and some red wines.

Blood cancers develop when immune cell DNA editing hits off-target spots
Editing errors in the DNA of developing T and B cells can cause blood cancers. Now, researchers have shown that when the enzyme key to cutting and pasting segments of DNA hits so-called 'off-target' spots on a chromosome, the development of immune cells can lead to cancer in animal models. Knowing the exact nature of these editing errors will be helpful in designing therapeutic enzymes based on these molecular scissors.
