Vaccine Storage and Transport Transformed with Sugary Gel

Combining vaccines with sugars allows them to be stored and transported, removing the troublesome cold chain and enabling delivery to hard to reach areas. A multi-disciplinary team created a vaccine-storage method that suspends the vaccine in a tiny one-dose container filled with a sugar-gel combination that dries and can be reconstituted with water.

Resistance to Antibiotic of Last Resort Found in Salmonella

The discovery of mcr-9, a gene that confers resistance to colistin, adds to the growing list of plasmid-mediated colistin resistance genes that were first described in E. coli in 2015. Because colistin is one of the world's few last-resort antibiotics, mcr-9 should be immediately considered when monitoring plasmid-mediated colistin resistance.

Gut Microbiome Helps Warm the Cockles of Your Core

During cold exposure, it is well established that animals sustain their body temperature by activating heat production from a specialized tissue known as brown adipose tissue and promoting "browning" of white adipose tissue. Now, investigators have revealed the important role of gut microbiota in thermoregulation and adipose breakdown.
