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.
Antibiotic resistance is one of the world’s most pressing public health problems. Illnesses that were once easily treatable with antibiotics * are becoming more difficult to cure and more expensive to treat. Infections from common antibiotic-resistant foodborne bacteria, such as Salmonella, can ...
The National Antimicrobial Resistance Monitoring System (NARMS) was established in 1996. NARMS is a collaborative program of state and local public health departments and universities, the FDA ...
Antimicrobial resistance Antibiotic (antimicrobial) resistance is the ability of bacteria to resist or overcome the effects of an antibiotic. The bacteria survive, despite treatment, and continue to multiply and cause illness. Infections caused by bacteria that are resistant to many drugs can be difficult or even impossible to cure.
Antibiotic resistance can be achieved by horizontal acquisition of resistance genes (carried by plasmids or transposons), by recombination of foreign DNA into the chromosome, or by mutations in different chromosomal loci (15). In studies of molecular evolutionary biology, the term mutation rate is ...
Antibiotic resistance (AR), when germs do not respond to the drugs designed to kill them, threatens to return us to the time when simple infections were often fatal. CDC is committed to protecting people and the future of the healthcare, veterinary, and agriculture industries from the threat of antibiotic resistance.
the average TMP-SMX resistance rate for uUTI specifically was 15.31% in 2001.22 Table 2 shows resistance rates from another analysis of TSN data in which a broader definition of UTI was used.21 The availability of local TMP-SMX resistance data, coupled with the advent of guidelines recommending the use of these
Looking for the Bad Bugs in Wisconsin David Warshauer, PhD, D(ABMM) ... Resistance rates to nearly all tested antibiotics in WI and U.S. have decreased over the studied time period . WI isolates are generally more resistant than ... Antimicrobial resistance surveillance
Antibiotics are powerful medicines used to treat harmful bacteria -- tiny germs that cause disease. One example of a bacterial infection is strep throat. Germs are not all the same. Other types of germs -- viruses -- cause most colds, sore throats, coughs, and runny noses. Antibiotics do not work against viruses, so you have to let viral infections run their course.
