NEW YORK, July 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Human Microbiology Institute (HMI), a not-for-profit scientific research organization, and Tetz Laboratories today announced the publication of a study in Scientific Reports that for the first time may implicate bacterial viruses (bacteriophages) in the pathogenesis of Parkinson’s disease (PD). The article, entitled “Parkinson’s disease and bacteriophages as its overlooked contributors” is available online here: www.nature.com/articles/s41598-018-29173-4.
HMI Discovers Previously Unknown Prion-Like Viral Proteins, Opening New Targets for Antiviral Drugs
NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / July 10, 2018 / Researchers at the Human Microbiology Institute(HMI) and Tetz Laboratories have discovered thousands of prion-like domains in human viruses, prompting research that opens new ways of viral pathogenicity, suggests new targets for development of new antiviral drugs and links viruses to diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
Bacteriophages: Are they an overlooked driver of Parkinson’s disease?
June 10, 2018 – Atlanta, GA – In the first study of its kind, researchers from the New York-based Human Microbiology Institute have discovered the role certain bacteriophages may play in the onset of Parkinson’s disease (PD). The research is presented at ASM Microbe, the annual meeting of the American Society for Microbiology, held from June 7th to June 11th in Atlanta, Georgia.
Bacteriophages: Are They an Overlooked Driver of Parkinson’s Disease?
Human Microbiology Institute research the first propose the concept of bacteriophages as human pathogens. In this study we discovered the effect of certain bacteriophages on the microbiota of patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD) that might contribute to the onset of this pathology
Research Will Be Presented at American Society for Microbiology (ASM) Microbe 2018
HMI’ bacteriophage research is in the Top 100 Scientific Reports Microbiology papers in 2017
NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / April 18, 2018 / ‘Bacteriophages as potential new mammalian pathogens’ has been selected as one of the top 100 read microbiology papers for Scientific Reports in 2017*, New York based HumanMicrobiology Institute (HMI) announced today.
NY Scientists First to Link Neurodegenerative Diseases and Bacterial Viruses
NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / October 17, 2017 / Alzheimer’s and many other neurodegenerative diseases can be caused by bacteriophages – viruses that infect and replicate within gut microbiota of humans and other mammals, New York based HumanMicrobiology Institute (HMI) announced today. The groundbreaking research findings were reported during an Oral Presentation at the American Society for Microbiology’s gathering at the University of Connecticut. The research project was done in collaboration with NYU scientists and results were recently published in highly reputable Nature’s Scientific Reports.
Viruses Called Bacteriophages Affect Bacteria in Mammal Gut Environment and May Cause Human Diseases, a Study from Human Microbiology Institute Reveals
NEW YORK, NY, July 12, 2017 — Viruses called bacteriophages affect bacteria that populate mammal gut environment and may cause human diseases, according to the Human Microbiology Institute (HMI). The revolutionary findings were revealed today during an oral presentation at the largest European microbiologist gathering, FEMS-2017 in Spain.
