Mercaptopyrimidine-Conjugated Gold Nanoclusters as Nanoantibiotics for Combating Multidrug-Resistant Superbugs.

Widespread bacterial resistance induced by the abuse of antibiotics eagerly needs the exploitation of novel antimicrobial agents and strategies. Gold nanoclusters (Au NCs) have recently emerged as an innovative nanomedicine, but study on their antibacterial properties especially towards multidrug resistant (MDR) bacteria is scarce. Herein, we demonstrate that a novel class of Au NCs, mercaptopyrimidine conjugated Au NCs, can act as potent nanoantibiotics targeting these intractable superbugs in vitro and in...

Octapeptins: Lipopeptide Antibiotics against Multidrug-Resistant Superbugs.

Antimicrobial resistance is increasing at an alarming rate. Polymyxin, one of the few antibiotics of last resort, is heavily affected. In this issue of Cell Chemical Biology, Velkov et al. (2018) present a promising alternative: octapeptin lipopeptide antibiotics active against multidrug- and extensively drug-resistant Gram-negative bacteria, which might help overcoming resistance toward polymyxins.

Perspective: Pharmacokinetics of Beta lactam antibiotics: Clues from the past to help discover long acting oral drugs in the future.

Beta lactams represent perhaps the most important class of antibiotics yet discovered. However, despite many years of active research none of the currently approved drugs in this class combine oral activity with long duration of action. Recent devel-opments suggest that new beta lactam antibiotics with such a profile would have utility in the treatment of tuberculosis. Consequently the historical beta lactam pharmacokinetic data has been compiled and analysed to identify possible directions and drug discove...

Sequential cooperative spectrum sensing in the presence of dynamic Byzantine attack for mobile networks.

Cooperative spectrum sensing (CSS) is envisaged as a powerful approach to improve the utilization of scarce radio spectrum resources, but it is threatened by Byzantine attack. Byzantine attack has been becoming a popular research topic in both academia and industry due to the demanding requirements of security. Extensive research mainly aims at mitigating the negative effect of Byzantine attack on CSS, but with some strong assumptions, such as attackers are in minority or trusted node(s) exist for data fusi...

Stabbed while Sleeping: Synthetic Retinoid Antibiotics Kill Bacterial Persister Cells.

Antibiotic-tolerant persister cells are difficult to eradicate by conventional classes of antibiotics. Kim and colleagues have discovered a new class of synthetic retinoid antibiotics that kill Staphylococcus aureus persisters by disrupting their cytoplasmic membrane.

Trusted Operations on Sensor Data .

The widespread use of mobile devices has allowed the development of participatory sensing systems that capture various types of data using the existing or external sensors attached to mobile devices. Gathering data from such anonymous sources requires a mechanism to establish the integrity of sensor readings. In many cases, sensor data need to be preprocessed on the device itself before being uploaded to the target server while ensuring the chain of trust from capture to the delivery of the data. This can b...

Keeping Antibiotics at Home Promotes Self-Medication with Antibiotics among Chinese University Students.

Inappropriate use of antibiotics has caused antimicrobial resistance, presenting a major health challenge to the world population. Self-medication with antibiotics (SMA) is currently at an alarming level in China.

Efficacy of prophylactic probiotics in combination with antibiotics versus antibiotics alone for colorectal surgery: A meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials.

This meta-analysis aimed to determine whether prophylactic probiotics in combination with antibiotics are superior to antibiotics alone in the prevention of surgical site infection (SSI) after colorectal surgery. Fourteen trials involving 1524 participants were included. Compared with antibiotics alone, prophylactic probiotics in combination with antibiotics reduced the risk of SSI as well as other complications, shortened the cumulative duration of antibiotic therapy. Current evidence suggested that probio...

Electrocatalytic dechlorination of halogenated antibiotics via synergistic effect of chlorine-cobalt bond and atomic H.

Although noble metal electrocatalysts are highly efficient in the dehalogenation of halogenated antibiotics, the prohibitive cost hinders their practical applications. In this study, a cobalt-phosphorous/oxide (CoP/O) composite prepared via a one-step electrodeposition was for the first time applied in electroreductive dechlorination of halogenated antibiotics (HA), including chloramphenicol (CAP), florfenicol (FLO) and thiamphenicol (TAP). CoP/O had a higher FLO dechlorination efficiency (91%) than Pd/C (6...

Stand-by antibiotics encourage unwarranted use of antibiotics for travelers' diarrhea: A prospective study.

As antibiotics predispose travelers to acquiring multidrug-resistant intestinal bacteria, they should no longer be considered a mainstay for treating travelers' diarrhea. Stand-by antibiotics are justified as a means to avoid visits with local healthcare providers often causing polypharmacy.

False Data Injection Attack for Cyber-Physical Systems With Resource Constraint.

Cyber-security is of the fundamental importance for cyber-physical systems (CPSs), since CPSs are vulnerable to cyber attack. In order to make the defensive measures better, one needs to understand the behavior from the view of an attacker. In this paper, the problem of false data injection attack on remote state estimation with resource constraints is studied in two cases, where the first case is that the attacker adds a Gaussian noise to the innovation, while the other is that the attacker employs a Gauss...

Security and efficiency enhancement of an anonymous three-party password-authenticated key agreement using extended chaotic maps.

Recently, Lu et al. claimed that Xie et al.'s three-party password-authenticated key agreement protocol (3PAKA) using chaotic maps has three security vulnerabilities; in particular, it cannot resist offline password guessing attack, Bergamo et al.'s attack and impersonation attack, and then they proposed an improved protocol. However, we demonstrate that Lu et al.'s attacks on Xie et al.'s scheme are unworkable, and their improved protocol is insecure against stolen-verifier attack and off-line password gue...

Dental, Oral, and Craniofacial Regenerative Medicine: Transforming Biotechnologies for Innovating Patient Care.

Frequency of Treatment Switching for Spironolactone Compared to Oral Tetracycline-Class Antibiotics for Women With Acne: A Retrospective Cohort Study 2010-2016.

Long-term oral antibiotic use in acne may be associated with a variety of adverse effects including antibiotic resistance, pharyngitis, inflammatory bowel disease, and breast and colon cancer. Spironolactone may represent an effective and safe alternative to oral antibiotics for women with moderate to severe acne, however comparative studies are lacking.

Antibiotics in early life: dysbiosis and the damage done.

Antibiotics are the most common type of medication prescribed to children, including infants, in the Western world. While use of antibiotics has transformed previously lethal infections into relatively minor diseases, antibiotic treatments can have adverse effects, as well. It has been shown in children, adults and animal models that antibiotics dramatically alter the gut microbial composition. Since the gut microbiota plays crucial roles in immunity, metabolism, and endocrinology, the effects of antibiotic...

Oral versus inhaled antibiotics for bronchiectasis.

Bronchiectasis is a chronic inflammatory disease characterised by a recurrent cycle of respiratory bacterial infections associated with cough, sputum production and impaired quality of life. Antibiotics are the main therapeutic option for managing bronchiectasis exacerbations. Evidence suggests that inhaled antibiotics may be associated with more effective eradication of infective organisms and a lower risk of developing antibiotic resistance when compared with orally administered antibiotics. However, it i...

BlaPred: predicting and classifying β-lactamase using a 3-tier prediction system via Chou's general PseAAC.

Antibiotics of β-lactam class account for nearly half of the global antibiotic use. The β-lactamase enzyme is a major element of the bacterial arsenals to escape the lethal effect of β-lactam antibiotics. Different variants of β-lactamases have evolved to counter the different types of β-lactam antibiotics. Extensive research has been done to isolate and characterize different variants of β-lactamases. Unfortunately, identification and classification of the β-lactamase enzyme are purely based on expe...

Antibiotics: a risk factor for irritable bowel syndrome in a population-based cohort.

Use of antibiotics affects the composition of the gut microbiome. The microbiome is thought to play a role in development of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), but antibiotics as a possible risk factor for IBS has not been clarified. We aimed to explore if antibiotics is a risk factor for IBS by investigating use of antibiotics and development of IBS in a cohort from the Danish background population.

Introduction and geographic availability of new antibiotics approved between 1999 and 2014.

Despite the urgent need for new, effective antibiotics, few antibiotics of value have entered the market during the past decades. Therefore, incentives have been developed to stimulate antibiotic R&D. For these incentives to be effective, geographic availability for recently approved antibiotics needs to be better understood. In this study, we analyze geographic availability and market introduction of antibiotics approved between 1999 and 2014.

Innovating in Your Practice: Overcoming Barriers to Create New Opportunities.

Antibiotic Use and Reduction in Veterinary Medicine.

After a short history of the development of antimicrobial substances and the initially underestimated resistance problem, the paper describes the method of monitoring the use of antibiotics in food animals at farm level. The resulting benchmarking led to a remarkable reduction of the amount of antibiotics used in animals. However, it is also explained that, apart from reducing the use of antibiotics, the rules for "prudent use" of antibiotics have to be complied with. Concluding, a critical analysis of the ...

Microbial interactions trigger the production of antibiotics.

Since the discovery of penicillin, antibiotics have been instrumental in treating infectious diseases. However, emerging antibiotic multi-resistance coinciding with a nearly exhausted drug pipeline is a major concern for the future of the therapy of infections. A novel approach for the discovery of antibiotics relies on the analysis of microbial consortia in their ecological context, taking into account the potential natural role of antibiotics. Co-cultivations of microorganisms have been successfully appli...

A new class of synthetic retinoid antibiotics effective against bacterial persisters.

A challenge in the treatment of Staphylococcus aureus infections is the high prevalence of methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) strains and the formation of non-growing, dormant 'persister' subpopulations that exhibit high levels of tolerance to antibiotics and have a role in chronic or recurrent infections. As conventional antibiotics are not effective in the treatment of infections caused by such bacteria, novel antibacterial therapeutics are urgently required. Here we used a Caenorhabditis elegans-MRSA...

Odilorhabdins, Antibacterial Agents that Cause Miscoding by Binding at a New Ribosomal Site.

Growing resistance of pathogenic bacteria and shortage of antibiotic discovery platforms challenge the use of antibiotics in the clinic. This threat calls for exploration of unconventional sources of antibiotics and identification of inhibitors able to eradicate resistant bacteria. Here we describe a different class of antibiotics, odilorhabdins (ODLs), produced by the enzymes of the non-ribosomal peptide synthetase gene cluster of the nematode-symbiotic bacterium Xenorhabdus nematophila. ODLs show activity...
