30 November 2017 г. Russian Researchers Find Way to Combat Resistance to Antibiotics in Diseases Russian Researchers Find Way to Combat Resistance to Antibiotics in Diseases

Other states are also researching ways to combat antibiotic resistance, but they have not been able to yield any positive results yet, according to a Russian scientist.

Researchers from Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University have proposed blocking bacterial antibiotic resistance by using small proteins called peptide inhibits (blocking agents).

02 August 2017 г. Heart tissues of different origins can 'beat' in sync

Researchers from MIPT and the University of Bonn (Germany) have shown that heart tissues of different origins can contract in sync. In a series of experiments, they first merged two rat tissues of different ages and then combined rat and mouse tissue. Excitation waves were transmitted successfully from one tissue to another, which theoretically means that artificially grown heart patches can fit in with excitable cardiac tissues. The paper was published in Biomaterials Science.
