Quotes

Reporters obtained the following quote from the background information supplied by the inventors: "Many different types of industrial or commercial operations rely on large quantities of water for various reasons, such as for cooling systems, or produce large quantities of wastewater, which need to be treated. These industries include, but are not limited to, agriculture, petroleum, chemical, pharmaceutical, mining, metal plating, textile, brewing, food and beverage processing, and semiconductor industries. Naturally occurring biofilms are continuously produced and often accumulate on numerous structural or equipment surfaces or on natural or biological surfaces. In industrial settings, the presence of these biofilms causes a decrease in the efficiency of industrial machinery, requires increased maintenance and presents potential health hazards. An example is the surfaces of water cooling towers which become increasingly coated with microbially produced biofilm slime which constricts water flow and reduces heat exchange capacity. Specifically, in flowing or stagnant water, biofilms can cause serious problems, including pipeline blockages, corrosion of equipment by growth of underfilm microbes and the growth of potentially harmful pathogenic bacteria. Water cooling tower biofilms may form a harbor or reservoir that perpetuates growth of pathogenic microorganisms such as Legionella pneumophila."
"There are emerging infections of all sorts—bacteria, viruses, parasites. Working up a new therapy for such things take time," says Shuman. "If we have drugs X, Y, or Z to interfere with host cell functions to slow or impede an infection, then we can have something already on hand to attack it." This research is supported by the U S National Institutes of Health
...transmitted from host to host," said lead author Armand Kuris, a professor in UCSB's Department of Ecology, Evolution and Marine Biology (EEMB). "They are categorically distinct from the way we think infectious diseases should operate. The paper tries to bring this group of diseases into sharp focus and get people to think more clearly about them."
