More than 35,000 people die every year in the US from antibiotic resistance – and the government is worried about vapes?

(Natural News) A new study by the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has revealed that more than 2.8 million people contract antibiotic-resistant bacterial and/or fungal infections every year in America – and of these cases, a shocking 35,000 end in death. On average, one new person living in the U.S. contracts...

CONCLUSION: Essential oils could be considered as alternative treatment for acne, decolonization of MRSA, and topical fungal infections, yet the low quality and heterogeneity among the studies calls for further studies. PMID: 31780027 [PubMed - in process]

Conclusion: In this study the prevalence of fungal colonization seems to be lower than expected and no correlation with disease severity or CFTR function was found.Clinical Implications: The positive association with bacterial colorization is possibly part of the complex microbial interaction pathway requiring further clinical research. The positive tendency between fungal colonization and cystic fibrosis-liver disease is interesting and may underline a phenotypic correlation.

In recent years, the management of bacterial infections in patients with cirrhosis has become increasingly complicated due to ...

iko Ishiwada Isamu Shiina A novel stereoisomer of eushearilide, 23-demethyleushearilide, was synthesized, and the structure–activity relationships of this compound along with known eushearilide stereoisomers were investigated in order to design novel lead compounds for the treatment of fungal infections. It was discovered that all of these congeners, together with the natural product, exhibited a wide range of antimicrobial activity against not only fungi but also against bacteria, including methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE).

Abstract During 2014-2017, CDC Emerging Infections Program surveillance data reported that the occurrence of invasive methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infections associated with injection drug use doubled among persons aged 18-49 years residing in Monroe County in western New York.* Unpublished surveillance data also indicate that an increasing proportion of all Candida spp. bloodstream infections in Monroe County and invasive group A Streptococcus (GAS) infections in 15 New York counties are also occurring among persons who inject drugs. In addition, across six surveillance sites nationwide, the...

The rapid increase in antibiotic-resistant bacteria has emphasised the urgent need to identify new treatments for bacterial infections. One attractive approach, avoiding the need for expensive and time-consuming clinical trials, is to re-purpose existing clinically-approved compounds for use as antibacterial agents. Nucleoside analogues are commonly used for treating viral and fungal infections, as well as for treating cancers, but have received relatively little attention as treatments for bacterial infections. However a significant number of clinically-approved derivatives of both pyrimidines and purines including haloge...

I have to admit it: recent news reports about a newly described “superbug” are worrisome and at least a little bit terrifying. This time, it’s not a flesh-eating bacterium or drug-resistant tuberculosis — in fact, it’s not a bacterial infection at all. It’s a fungus called Candida auris (C. auris). If the first part of the name sounds familiar, that may be because other Candida species (such as Candida albicans, glabrata, and tropicalis) cause common vaginal and skin infections. They’re often called yeast infections and while quite bothersome, they only rarely cause serious illness...
