Story Behind Antibiotic Resistance

The resistance of bacteria to antibiotics commonly used is increasing. But how is antibiotic resistance spread and what are the consequences? What causes antibiotics resistance? For more details, please consult this infographic. Each year, at least 2 million people in the United States develop severe MRR infections, resulting in 23,000 deaths.

In the past 10 years, however, more drug-resistant inflammations have arisen within community situations. Antimicrobial resistance was mostly confined to health care rather than affected the general community.

By 2050, the Wellcome Trust forecasts the number 1 cause of death worldwide for resistant infections, with an estimated 10 million deaths annually. Given the few new antimicrobial agents in the pharmaceutical pipeline, we could face challenges far beyond present major global diseases such as HIV, tuberculosis and malaria.
