MDR REMAINS PUBLIC HEALTH ISSUE
22 December 2010Multidrug Resistant Bacteria Remain a Public Health Issue in Europe. With annually up to 400,000 patients reported to suffer from infections resistant to multiple antibiotics, new data from EARS-Net show that antibiotic resistance remains a public health problem across the European Union.
In Klebsiella pneumoniae, a common cause of infection amongst hospital patients, an emerging trend is the proportion of resistance to powerful last-line antibiotics, such as carbapenems. Proportions of resistance range from less than 1% to more than 25%. Without effective last-line antibiotics, doctors face the dilemma of not having any treatment options left.
