Researchers have discovered just how electrical stimulation helps to promote wound healing. Stimulating cells with electrical charges causes the cells to move toward the center of the wound, according to researchers of a new study. They discovered this with the help of a new tool that predicts how cells migrate within a wound, according to the study, which was published in the Journal of Theoretical Biology (June 15, 2019; 478:58-73).
Five people have been infected by the flesh-eating bacteria Vibrio Vulnificus in a region of the East Coast of the United States which had previously seen only one case in nearly a decade and researchers at Cooper University in New Jersey have said this may be a result of climate change.

Three therapies, when used in combination, may slow advanced melanoma, according to a new study led by researchers at UCLA. The study, published online ahead of print in the journal Nature Medicine (June 6, 2019) showed that the combination of dabrafenib, trametinib, and pembrolizaumab can slow the growth of advanced melanoma cancer cells.
Food allergies can be triggered in children with eczema if they become infected with Staphylococcus aureus (SA) bacteria, according to a new study.
