London, UK (PRWEB) August 27, 2013
Threats caused by the worldwide upsurge in antibiotic resistant bacterial strains keep on triggering concern. In the United States, around 60% of all hospital-acquired infections are induced by antibiotic resistant bacteria. Thus, in 2009, 440,000 new cases of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR TB) were registered in 69 countries of the world. In Europe alone, 25,000 people died from drug-resistant infections in the same year. Despite an increase in the usage of antibiotics in recent decades, the approval of new antibiotics in the United States fell 60% to just 12 during 1998-2009 as compared to the decade 1983-1992. Despite a remarkable increase in the number and novelty of new pipeline antibiotics in the recent past, the health threats posed by antibiotic resistance need to be tackled in many different ways, without delay.
The last five years have seen major changes in practices, innovation and attitudes in answer to these looming threats. These are driving innovation in drug discovery and diagnostics, as well as in clinical practices and the ways in which antibiotics are being used. In an effort to ensure the most effective and appropriate use of antibiotics, there is increasing surveillance, both local and international, to monitor the emergence and expansion of antibiotic resistant strains. These developments offer fresh opportunities for the developers in drug discovery and in diagnostics fields.
