Fall allergies can trigger horse asthma, affect performance

September 16, 2020

Just like many people start to sneeze in the fall, horses also can be affected by seasonal allergies. Sometimes, this is apparent by coughing, but other times, according to Laurent Couëtil, professor of large animal internal medicine in Purdue University’s College of Veterinary Medicine, the only sign is that their performance suffers.

New drug could stop deadly superbug, save tens of thousands of lives

September 14, 2020

Vancomycin-resistant enterococcus (VRE) is among the leading causes of hospital-acquired infections in the United States. An estimated 20,000 people in the U.S. become infected with it each year, and nearly 10% of people who get it die from it. These superbugs typically develop from infections in the intestinal tract, where the bacteria become resistant to the antibiotic vancomycin. People who stay in a hospital have the highest odds of getting VRE. A pair of Purdue University researchers from the College of Pharmacy and the College of Veterinary Medicine developed small molecules to combat deadly, drug-resistant enterococcus.
