Scientists find compounds restoring antibiotic efficacy against MRSA

MRSA antibiotic efficacy Antibiotics that no longer work against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA, were found to be effective in mice when paired with two synthetic compounds, according to a new study.

Report: U.S. Company Bungled Ebola Response

US company botched ebola responseAn American company that bills itself as a pioneer in tracking emerging epidemics made a series of costly mistakes during the 2014 Ebola outbreak that swept across West Africa — with employees feuding with fellow responders, contributing to misdiagnosed Ebola cases and repeatedly misreading the trajectory of the virus, an Associated Press investigation has found.

The cancer cluster of Piketon, Ohio

cancer cluster piketonA patch of land in the hills of rural Pike County, Ohio, hardly looks as if it played a key role in the Cold War. But as politicians dueled on the world stage, workers at the Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant south of Piketon toiled away producing weapons-grade uranium for the United States’ military.

The plant went online in 1954, lasted through the Cold War and is now in the process of winding down. Presciently, a group of Amish settlers who once plowed the land pulled up stakes when construction on the plant began in 1952. They were worried about the environmental impact, and the traditional pacifists were uncomfortable with the militaristic aspects of the complex.
