Anti-infective research aims to disable pathogens’ T3SA 'injection nanomachine'

In the face of antibiotic resistance, a new wave of researchers has abandoned the quest for a bigger, badder antibiotic agent to kill or slow the growth of pathogenic bacteria. Instead, these pioneers are exploring ways to develop anti-infective agents that will disarm bacteria or disrupt their workings.

Single analgesia injection provides days of pain relief

New research could change the way post-operative analgesia is administered in dogs, enabling patients to go home sooner and spend less time in the hospital. A study led by the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s School of Veterinary Medicine looked at the effectiveness of injecting dogs with extended-release opioids to provide long-term pain relief. The group of scientists, headed by UW veterinary anesthesiologist Lesley Smith, DVM, DACVA, used liposome-encapsulated hydromorphone made with dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine and cholesterol (DPPC-C hydromorphone) for the study. Different concentrations of the formulation, created at the university, were subcutaneously injected into healthy beagles. The concentration of hydromorphone in the dog’s blood serum was then measured at various intervals to determine whether the drug was working. “We extrapolated that certain serum levels (as shown in human studies) are correlated with surgical analgesia,” Smith said.
