  • 1928 Diagnostics Awarded as Technology Pioneer by World Economic Forum

    [21 Jun 2018] 1928 Diagnostics, who develops a platform for automated DNA-analysis of bacterial infections in collaboration with researchers from CARe, was chosen among hundreds of candidates as a Technology Pioneer by World Economic Forum.

  • One week lab course on antibiotic resistance

    [21 Jun 2018] This week, 15 students completed the one week lab course, "The Problem of Antibiotic Resistance" led by CARe member Anne Farewell.

  • The third annual CARe meeting

    [13 Jun 2018] The third annual CARe meeting was held June 11th-12th on the island of Hisingen. Christina Greko from the SVA gave a highly appreciated lecture to the ca 60 participating CARe scientist.

  • Sweden invests 165 Million SEK in advanced sewage treatment

    [9 May 2018] The Swedish Government decided today to support installation of advanced sewage treatment in order to more efficiently remove pharmaceutical residues and reduce risks for antibiotic resistance development

  • Critical knowledge gaps - environment and antibiotic resistance

    [7 May 2018] This review provides guidance to what knowledge gaps are critical to fill, in order to better manage risks related to antibiotic resistance from environmental sources.

  • Researchers from CARe have now functionally characterised and determined the substrate bound structure of the sialic acid transporter

    [7 May 2018] Sialic acid transporters are required for sialic acid uptake in a number of human pathogens and are of interest as targets for antimicrobial drug development. Researchers from CARe have now functionally characterised and determined the substrate bound structure of the sialic acid transporter from the uropathogen Proteus mirabilis. The study provide insights into the mechanism of sialic acid transport and is a stepping stone for structure based drug-design. The study was published in Nature Communications.

  • Selective concentrations of ciprofloxacin in complex bacterial communities

    [26 Apr 2018] Ciprofloaxin is a potent and relatively stable synthetic antibiotic. Hence, there may be risks for selection for resistance when it is released into the environment. In a study published this week in the journal Environment International, CARe researchers studied what concentrations were required to select for resistance (as measured by several endpoints) in complex aquatic biofilms. The results may be used for guiding regulation as well other voluntary initiatives to reduce risks associated with environmental antibiotic pollution.
