US HHS and GSK collaboration for $200 million
GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) have agreed to a first of its kind collaboration that will support the development of several antibiotics to fight antibiotic resistance and bioterrorism.

Salmonella Kentucky has developed resistance to antibiotic Ciprofloxacin
A strain of Salmonella resistant to the most powerful antibiotics has been found in the UK, France and Denmark. This particular strain has a high level of resistance to ciprofloxacin, a common treatment for severe salmonella infections.

Copper reduces infection risk by 40%
Copper touch surfaces could have a key role in preventing the transmission of healthcare-associated infections. Extensive laboratory tests have demonstrated copper's antimicrobial efficacy against key organisms. A 97% reduction in surface pathogens in rooms with copper surfaces has been demonstrated.

Combination therapy provides hope for cure of infections in cystic fibrosis
An over-the-counter drug used to treat diarrhea combined with minocycline, an antibiotic used to treat bacterial infections, could one day change the lives of those living with cystic fibrosis.

New way to fight antibiotic resistant bacteria
Treating municipal wastewater solids at higher temperatures may be an effective tool in the fight against antibiotic-resistant bacteria, says researchers from the University of Minnesota's College of Science and Engineering.

New drug resistant TB strains emerging
The emergence of new forms of tuberculosis could swell the proportion of drug-resistant cases globally, a new study has found. The finding raises concern that although TB incidence is falling in many regions, the emergence of antibiotic resistance could see virtually untreatable strains of the disease become widespread.

Antibiotic use in ICU increases survival
Administering antibiotics as a preventive measure to patients in intensive care units (ICUs) increases their chances of survival.
