BioScience Laboratories Announces Testing Capabilities for NDM-1

BioScience Laboratories has obtained seven clinical isolates that provide a strong model for predicting a product's efficacy against "Super-Bugs", such as the New Delhi metallo-a-lactamase 1 (NDM-1) strain.

BOZEMAN, MT, August 18, 2010 ( BioScience Laboratories has obtained seven clinical isolates of Carbapenem-Resistant (CR) Klebsiella pneumoniae and Escherichia coli.

These organisms provide a strong model for predicting a product's efficacy against "Super-Bugs," such as the New Delhi metallo-a-lactamase 1 (NDM-1) strain that has aroused recent worldwide concern. Carbapenems are historically used as a last resort for fighting bacterial infections, particularly versus multidrug-resistant Gram-negative species.

The five isolates of CR-Klebsiella pneumoniae and two isolates of CR-Escherichia coli are being used by BioScience Laboratories microbiologists to test products for their in-vitro efficacy as topical antimicrobials or hard-surface disinfectants to provide data predictive of a product's efficacy versus the New Delhi metallo-a-lactamase 1 (NDM-1) strain.

BioScience Laboratories, Inc. was founded in 1991 in Bozeman, MT, to provide antimicrobial product testing and result interpretation grounded in science. Bioscience Laboratories Inc. strives to assist its clients in strengthening their current market positions through product testing and aid in the development of new products and new markets.

Missouri Narrows Tort Reform Caps, Passes on Constitutionality Question

The Missouri Supreme Court recently provided a significant, albeit limited, victory to injured people seeking damages in medical malpractice claims. In Klotz v. St. Anthony's Medical Center, the court concluded that the caps on noneconomic damages enacted by Missouri's 2005 tort reform law should only apply to injuries that occurred after the law took effect. Unfortunately, the court failed to address the larger issues of whether the damages caps themselves are constitutional. The 2005 Tort Reform Law and Damages Caps In 2005, then-Gov. Matt Blunt signed a bill into ...

Battle to Enforce Trademark Wax Seal on Liquor Bottles Finally Ends

Copying a single aspect of another company's packaging - even if the companies are not in direct competition with one another - may violate federal trademark laws. That difficult lesson comes courtesy of a recent court decision (Maker's Mark Distillery Inc., v. Diageo North American, Inc., et. al, 2010 WL 1407325 (W.D.Ky.) from the United States District Court for the Western District of Kentucky. The case arose out of the adoption of the distinctive red wax seal used by Maker's Mark, a distiller of bourbon, by the makers of Cuervo tequila. Although no one is going to ...

Treating Mental Illness: Can a Missed Diagnosis Lead to Jail Time?

Countless crimes are committed everyday in the United States. Some of them, by default, are committed by people with some form of mental illness. Some of these disorders are diagnosed, some are not. In some cases, relatively minor offenses arise as the result of mental illness. An individual may be arrested for trespassing or for being a public nuisance, when the criminal activity is a merely a symptom of a larger problem. In other cases, a criminal act is a cry for help - some know that the only way they will ever receive the medication and treatment they desperately ...

Michigan High Court Considers "Possession" in Child Pornography Cases

In a recent case, the Michigan Supreme Court elucidated the meaning of "possession" within the context of child pornography. The ruling expands the definition of possession to include both actual and constructive possession of child sexually-abusive material, thereby making it more difficult for people accused of possession of child pornography to defend against these allegations. The defendants were identified after federal officials raided a company in Florida that sold child pornography on the Internet. With information from the credit cards used to access and view ...

Manufacturers Try to Swerve Around Off-Road Vehicle Safety Rules

The Commission is writing mandatory rules for the two- to four-passenger recreational off-road vehicles also known as ROVs. Bloomberg News reports that U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission chair Inez Tannenbaum told a meeting of ROV manufacturers that "it concerned me then, ...

Radiation Overdoses Coming To Light Following Brain Perfusion CT Scans

Imagine suddenly losing your hair in a narrow ring around your head (right about where a hat would sit) but have no idea why. That dilemma was the start of a very troubling discovery for hundreds of people across the country who had been the victims of radiation overdoses during CT scans. In the summer of 2009, reports of the telltale hair loss and other symptoms began surfacing, as medical experts and the victims themselves began putting the pieces together.
