Resistance to bacteriophage incurs a cost to virulence in drug-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii (2024)
Journal Article
Manley, R., Fitch, C., Francis, V., Temperton, I., Turner, D., Fletcher, J., …Temperton, B. (2024). Resistance to bacteriophage incurs a cost to virulence in drug-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii. Journal of Medical Microbiology, 73(5), Article 001829. https://doi.org/10.1099/jmm.0.001829

Introduction. Acinetobacter baumannii is a critical priority pathogen for novel antimicrobials (World Health Organization) because of the rise in nosocomial infections and its ability to evolve resistance to last resort antibiotics. A. baumannii is t... Read More about Resistance to bacteriophage incurs a cost to virulence in drug-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii.

In vitro and in vivo evaluation of the biofilm-degrading Pseudomonas phage Motto, as a candidate for phage therapy (2024)
Journal Article
Manohar, P., Loh, B., Turner, D., Tamizhselvi, R., Mathankumar, M., Elangovan, N., …Leptihn, S. (2024). In vitro and in vivo evaluation of the biofilm-degrading Pseudomonas phage Motto, as a candidate for phage therapy. Frontiers in Microbiology, 15, Article 1344962. https://doi.org/10.3389/fmicb.2024.1344962

Infections caused by Pseudomonas aeruginosa are becoming increasingly difficult to treat due to the emergence of strains that have acquired multidrug resistance. Therefore, phage therapy has gained attention as an alternative to the treatment of pseu...

While taxonomy is an often underappreciated branch of science, it serves very important roles. Bacteriophage taxonomy has evolved from a discipline based mainly on morphology, characterized by the work of David Bradley and Hans-Wolfgang Ackermann, to...

Genomic analysis of two novel bacteriophages infecting acinetobacter beijerinckii and halotolerans species (2023)
Journal Article
Gomes, M., Domingues, R., Turner, D., & Oliveira, H. (2023). Genomic analysis of two novel bacteriophages infecting acinetobacter beijerinckii and halotolerans species. Viruses, 15(3), 643. https://doi.org/10.3390/v15030643

Bacteriophages are the most diverse genetic entities on Earth. In this study, two novel bacteriophages, nACB1 (Podoviridae morphotype) and nACB2 (Myoviridae morphotype), which infect Acinetobacter beijerinckii and Acinetobacter halotolerans, respecti...
