  • Most effective way to reduce brucellosis spread is to decrease elk populations, panel says

    Decreasing elk populations in the Greater Yellowstone Area may be the most effective way to reduce the spread of the disease brucellosis to domestic livestock in the Greater Yellowstone Area, a national science panel has reported.

    Hunting, contraception, testing and slaughtering infected elk and the gradual phasing out of elk feedgrounds in Wyoming were ways recommended to reduce the prevalence of brucellosis in elk.

  • WSU’s Jenni Zambriski has one of science’s dirtiest jobs

    Jenni Zambriski is an expert on fulminant diarrhea. It’s as gross as it sounds, but her research has the upside of potentially saving millions of young lives.

    Zambriski and an international group of colleagues announce in the latest the journal Nature that they have found a drug for treating cryptosporidiosis, a diarrheal disease that is a major cause of child mortality in the developing world. Zambriski, a clinical assistant professor in Washington State University’s Paul G. Allen School for Global Animal Health, is one of three lead authors of the Nature paper, having developed a way to use calves as an animal model for testing the drug.

  • Resisting The Resistance

    It's one of the greatest threats to human health. If it isn't stopped, one of humanity's greatest achievements in modern medicine may gradually be lost. The antibiotic era began in September 1928, when Scottish biologist Alexander Fleming noticed that a certain mold was inhibiting the growth of bacteria in a petri dish. That mold became penicillin, and that penicillin ushered in a medical revolution.

  • WSU researchers find plague bacterium endures in soil

    The bacterium that causes bubonic plague has been found to survive in the common amoeba, the microorganism most children often see first in a grade school microscope. The plague bacteria (Yersinia pestis) produces proteins that protect it from being digested by the amoeba.The plague is a re-emerging disease, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, with 95 percent of cases occurring in sub-Saharan Africa and Madagascar. Modern antibiotics are effective, but without prompt treatment, plague can cause serious illness or death.

  • Antibiotic Resistance is Global Problem

    Omulo, who was born in Narobi, the capital city of Kenya, has been working toward her doctorate at WSU since autumn of 2013, two years after she made connections with researchers in the Paul G. Allen School of Global Animal Health in her home country.

    After dozens of meetings with a doctoral advisory committee during her first year in Pullman she narrowed down her goals. They were all working toward driving change in Africa.

  • Bacterium that causes Bubonic Plague still found everywhere

    The bacterium that caused the deathly bubonic plague could survive within the ameba, the universal soil protozoan. It could survive through producing proteins that protect the ameba's digestion of microbes, scientists have discovered.
