Unknown virus discovered in human body:

An international team based in Austria has unearthed a previously unknown type of virus in samples of human bodily fluids. The researchers were looking for viruses that infect bacteria – known as bacteriophages – with an emphasis on those that attack the Escherichia coli (E. coli) bacterium found in the human gut. The team identified a total of 43 bacteriophages in samples of human bodily fluids, particularly in blood samples. The discovery of such phages in the human body is especially significant because they can pass antibiotic resistance genes on to bacteria.

Baking with Electric Shocks Scientists Explore the Baking of Gluten Free Bread Using a Revolutionary Baking Technology:

Electric shocks are used to heat gluten free bread from the inside – successful baking while saving energy and time compared to conventional baking applying heat from the outside. A recent study from the Institute of Food Technology of the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences (BOKU) Vienna was just published in an international journal. A technology named “Ohmic heating” was used and adapted to the production of gluten free bread. First results show superior quality of the Ohmic bread while energy and time were saved during the manufacturing process.

Phage Lysin Stabilizes Vaginal Microbiome. PhagoMed Accelerates R&D Program Against Bacterial Vaginosis.:

Vienna (Austria), 22 October 2019: Vienna-based biotech company PhagoMed Biopharma GmbH has discovered a novel drug candidate for the treatment of Bacterial Vaginosis and the re-stabilization of the vaginal microbiome. A dedicated R&D team has been established to develop this unique therapeutic approach, which is based on a phage lysin. Phage lysins are enzymes of specific viruses (phages), which can eradicate and destroy bacteria. They are considered as a potential alternative to antibiotics, which are losing their efficacy due to bacterial resistance. With this new program, PhagoMed is extending its portfolio: in addition to therapies based on complete phages, the company now also develops a pharmaceutical based on a recombinantly expressed enzyme.

High drug costs despite public R&D funding in the millions:

Newly developed drugs are increasingly becoming extremely expensive. This poses new challenges for healthcare systems. The OECD has been addressing this problem for some time, as it restricts “access to medicines”. In May of this year, the World Health Organization WHO adopted a resolution calling for greater transparency in the pricing of medicines. The Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Health Technology Assessment (LBI-HTA) in Vienna has now developed methods precisely for this purpose. They allow the identification of public and philanthropic funds that contribute to the discovery and development of an approved drug.
