Bacteria Helps Heal Sick Bats


May 27, 2015 - Last week, bats treated with a bacteria that cured their deadly white-nose syndrome were released back into the wild in Hannibal, Missouri. More research is under way on this new treatment, which researchers hope could make a difference in the battle against white-nose syndrome, which now is found in 26 U.S. states, 5 Canadian provinces, and parts of Europe.

After he successfully used the bacteria Rhodococcus to delay fruit ripening, Chris Cornelison, a microbiologist and postdoctoral research associate at Georgia State University, contacted the U.S. Forest Service about using the same bacteria to treat white-nose syndrome in bats. The early results in bats are promising.
