UC San Diego School of Medicine researchers identify how the body regulates and prevents constant skin inflammation
Researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine have discovered one way in which SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes COVID-19, hijacks human cell machinery to blunt the immune response, allowing it to establish infection, replicate and cause disease.
It may take guts — or more precisely, a diverse gut microbiome — to achieve wisdom and fend off loneliness. Or perhaps it’s the other way around, report UC San Diego researchers
Despite continued improvements in antibiotics and hospital intensive care, staph sepsis — a bloodstream infection caused by Staphylococcus aureus bacteria — still causes severe illness or death in 20 to 30 percent of patients who contract it. Rather than continue to throw more antibiotics at the problem, University of California San Diego researchers want to…
Automated process helps test city sewage for SARS-CoV-2, allowing researchers to forecast the region’s caseload one to two weeks ahead of clinical diagnostic reports
New research from UC San Diego reveals hidden dynamics of bacteria colonies
University of California San Diego School of Medicine researchers found evidence that triclosan, an antimicrobial found in many soaps and other household items, worsens fatty liver disease in mice fed a high-fat diet.
Researchers say viral transmission risk is low, even when candies are handled by infected persons, but handwashing and disinfecting collected sweets reduces risk even further
New understanding of how our microbiomes change as we age sets the stage for future research on the role microbes play in accelerating or decelerating the aging process and influencing age-related diseases
