Antidepressants, such as the SSRI amitriptyline, antibiotics associated with developmental problems and sun cream components are contaminating water, and are being accumulated in fish. Exposure to the medications has effects on the molecular level to the fish. Researchers say this poses a problem as consumption of gilt-head bream is on the rise, and there could be a risk of the contaminants reaching humans via diet.

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.
Early-life exposure to antibiotics may impact brain signaling pathways associated with social behavior and pain regulation. Young mice treated with antibiotics had reduced expression of receptors that mediate endorphin, oxytocin, and vasopressin signaling in the frontal cortex.
A new study reveals minocycline, a popular antibiotic, can help extend lifespan and improve protein balance in aging worms. Researchers say the protective mechanism of the medication could be exploited to help prevent neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's or Parkinson's in humans.
Researchers discover an antibiotic, that is safe to use during pregnancy, can help to prevent the Zika virus from infecting certain fetal brain cells.
