T he two-faced Roman god Janus could see both forward and backward simultaneously. In describing the “Janus Effect” as it relates to the effectiveness of corporate chief executive officers (CEOs), California business gurus James Kouzes and Barry Posner suggest that CEOs who reflect furthest back are those who also plan ahead most effectively. In terms of antibiotic discovery, we would do well to reflect on the past as a way of enhancing our forward thinking. Lately the prospects for progress…

An antibacterial compound pyrimidomycin produced by Streptomyces sp. PSAA01 isolated from soil of Eastern Himalayan foothill
TLDR
Pyrimidomycin did not have cytotoxicity towards human cell lines indicating its limited activity within bacteria, and showed synergy with the most used antibiotic like ampicillin, vancomycin and chloramphenicol.
Screening and Isolation of Antibiotic Producing Actinomycetes from Marine Samples Using Rifampicin
TLDR
In the search for screening and isolation of bioactive producing actinomycetes, rifampicin might be used as a better drug of choice than naldixic acid for suppressing and inhibiting growth of non-filamentous bacterial contaminants in marine samples.
Etude PK/PD du linézolide et de la daptomycine et intérêt de l'IRM associée aux USPIOS dans deux modèles d'infections expérimentales à Staphylococcus aureus chez le lapin : endophtalmie et arthrite aiguës
Staphylococcus aureus est une des especes bacteriennes les plus frequemment responsable des cas d’endophtalmie et d’arthrite aigues chez l’homme. Nous avons etudie la pharmacodynamie oculaire du

Genetically Modified Bacterial Strains and Novel Bacterial Artificial Chromosome Shuttle Vectors for Constructing Environmental Libraries and Detecting Heterologous Natural Products in Multiple Expression Hosts
TLDR
The tools developed for transferring environmental libraries into all three expression hosts and screening for novel activities are described, which confirm that the three hosts have different expression capabilities for some known gene clusters.
