Testing for antibiotic resistance no longer constrained by time: Report

Impedance cytometry, which measures the dielectric properties of individual cells with high throughput-more than a thousand cells per minute-is the foundation of the group's work.

Due to the cytometry's nanoscale sensitivity, even the smallest physical alterations in bacterial cells could be detected. (Representational image/ AP)

Antibiotics might worsen melanoma by depleting the gut microbiome: Study

Osteolytic bone metastasis is a complication of malignant melanoma. The researchers hypothesized that using antibiotics to deplete the gut microbiome of mice would affect their intestinal immune cells and thus alter their immune response, leading to accelerated bone metastasis.
