Current point-of-care detection technologies have largely focused on identifying a specific pathogen
or groups of related organisms that can be detected in a single sample.
Summit Therapeutics announced the discovery of multiple new mechanism antibiotics against novel ESKAPE pathogen
"This supports influenza prevention in asthmatic children, consideration of pathogen
identification on presentation, and exploration of treatment intensification for infected patients at higher risk of treatment failure," the authors write.
Scientists examine seven areas in plant pathogen
It now seems likely that no single measure will suffice to meet the challenge of soilborne pathogens
. Rather, a multi-faceted approach will be required, one that integrates advances in disease resistance through breeding with closer attention to the factors that influence the survival, activity and spread of pathogen
populations in soil.
(1-2) One of the biggest issues is that a target is needed to know which test(s) can lead to an accurate diagnosis; the laboratorian must know what pathogen
Potential mechanisms for root pathogen
protection by AM fungi include reduced availability of infection sites on roots, induction of host resistance through such mechanisms as increased chitinase activity or cell wall lignification, changes in root morphology, alteration of the host rhizosphere, and competition for plant photosynthates (for reviews see Azcon-Aguilar and Barea, 1996; Whipps, 2004), and the mechanism is likely to differ among AM fungal species (Wehner et al, 2010).

monocytogenes as a foodborne pathogen
. We've learned about its many virulence factors, how it may be transferred from product to product and its sources of contamination.
has introduced the portable Zephyr Pathogen
Identifier system, which delivers extremely rapid, highly reliable detection of bacteria, virus and toxins in powder and liquid samples in minutes.
ISLAMABAD -- Contamination is common in contact lens storage cases, say Israeli researchers who found at least one pathogen
in two-thirds of 30 storage cases used by 16 people.
