Study: Honey May Be Better At Treating Coughs, Colds Than Over-The-Counter Medicines
(CNN) — Honey may be a better treatment for coughs and colds than over-the-counter medicines, a new study has found. Researchers said honey was more effective in relieving the symptoms of cold and flu-like illnesses than the usual commercial remedies, and could provide a safer, cheaper and more readily available alternative to antibiotics. They encouraged doctors to consider recommending it to patients in place of prescribing antibiotics, which can cause side effects and lead to antibiotic resistance when overused. Honey has long been used as a home remedy for coughs, but its effectiveness in treating common illnesse...

Itaconate is an effector of a Rab GTPase cell-autonomous host defense pathway against Salmonella
The guanosine triphosphatase (GTPase) Rab32 coordinates a cell-intrinsic host defense mechanism that restricts the replication of intravacuolar pathogens such as Salmonella. Here, we show that this mechanism requires aconitate decarboxylase 1 (IRG1), which synthesizes itaconate, a metabolite with antimicrobial activity. We find that Rab32 interacts with IRG1 on Salmonella infection and facilitates the delivery of itaconate to the Salmonella-containing vacuole. Mice defective in IRG1 rescued the virulence defect of a S. enterica serovar Typhimurium mutant specifically defective in its ability to counter the Rab32 defense me...
