A new study reports long term use of antibiotics in mice decreased levels of amyloid plaques and activated inflammatory microglial cells.
FIASMA antidepressants, such as amitriptyline and desipramine, halt the growth of four different kinds of bacterial pathogens in cell cultures and animal models. The antidepressants have shown to be effective in killing intracellular bacteria in two chlamydia infections, as well as human granulocytic anaplasmosis, a tick-borne disease that attacks white blood cells.

A new deep learning algorithm helped researchers identify a powerful new antibiotic compound that kills many of the world's most problematic, disease-causing bacterias, including those which have so far been resistant to common antibiotics.
Researchers have discovered how pieces of bacterial cell wall cross the placenta and enter developing neurons, altering fetal brain anatomy and cognitive functioning after birth.
Cannabidiol (CBD), a non-psychoactive compound extract of marijuana, has the potential to be used as an antibiotic. Researchers found CBD was remarkably effective at killing a wide range of Gram-positive bacteria, including bacteria that are resistant to common antibiotics. Additionally, CBD does not lose its effectiveness after extended treatment.
Gastrointestinal and immune disorders, along with sleep disruptions and seizures often co-occur at similar points of time in those diagnosed under the autism spectrum. Analyzing patterns in diagnosis of co-occurring medical conditions allowed for the identification of three subtypes of children with ASD. The findings could provide new insight into the mechanics of ASD.
According to researchers, some common antibiotics could be linked to delirium and some other temporary brain problems.
Fluoroquinolone antibiotics, such as Levofloxacin and Ciprofloxacin, appear to increase the risk of peripheral neuropathy by 47%. However, there is no significant increased risk of developing neuropathy associated with amoxicillin use.
A new study reports that when minocycline is given to new born rats following a head injury, cognitive deficits are exacerbated.
Ethnobotanical plant extracts, including Ghanaian quinine and Japanese knotweed, show strong activity against B.burgdorferi, outperforming current antibiotics for the treatment of Lyme disease.
Researchers have developed a new antibiotic medication that appears to be safe and effective in treating clostridium difficile infection.
