The National Antimicrobial Resistance Monitoring System for Enteric Bacteria (NARMS) was established in 1996. NARMS is a collaboration among state and local public health departments, CDC, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).
ResistanceMap is a collection of tools summarizing national and subnational data on antimicrobial use and resistance around the world. Since its launch in 2010, ResistanceMap has helped inform researchers, policy makers and the public of important trends in drug resistance and antibiotic use.
Welcome to NARMS Now: Human Data, an interactive tool from CDC that contains antibiotic resistance data from bacteria isolated from humans as part of the National Antimicrobial Resistance Monitoring System (NARMS).
Antibiotic resistance is a global threat, and The US Center’s for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) considers antibiotic resistance one of their top concerns. Infections with drug-resistant bacteria may lead to longer and more costly hospital care, and may increase the risk of dying from the infection.
We explored the role of climate (temperature) and additional factors on the distribution of antibiotic resistance across the United States, and here we show that increasing local temperature as ...
Antibiotic resistance occurs when antibiotics (medicines used to treat infections caused by bacteria) don't work anymore. Antibiotics can be life-saving, but bacteria are becoming more resistant. If we're not careful about how we prescribe and use the antibiotics we've relied on for years, they might not work for us in the future.
This new tool, launched by HealthMap team this week during the World Health Organization’s World Antibiotic Awareness Week, provides a window into regional and local antibiotic resistance patterns across the globe. ResistanceOpen isn’t the first tool researchers have come up with to map resistance.
“We know there’s an opportunity to improve by selecting an antibiotic that considers the local antibiotic resistance trend. And that’s really the heart of the project, is to provide data in a visualization that would improve its use and application directly to patient care.” ... It’s not clear what underlies these pockets of ...
