MONDAY, Jan. 18, 2016 (HealthDay News) Public health experts are expressing growing anxiety over the prospect of antibiotic-resistant gonorrhea.

Just last month, health officials in Great. New guidelines for the treatment of 3 common sexually transmitted infections (STIs) have been issued by WHO in response to the growing threat of antibiotic resistance. Chlamydia, gonorrhoea and syphilis are all caused by bacteria and are generally curable with antibiotics.

However, these STIs often go undiagnosed and are becoming more difficult to treat, with some antibiotics now failing as a. Cephalosporins remained the foundation of gonorrhea treatment in the 2010 CDC STD treatment guidelines ().These updated guidelines increased the recommended dosage of ceftriaxone to 250 mg and included broadened recommendations for combination therapy: a cephalosporin, preferably ceftriaxone 250 mg as a single intramuscular dose, should be administered with a second antimicrobial. Although bacterial adaptation and evolution is common, the growing number of antibiotic-resistant bacteria strains is caused by the systematic overuse of antibiotic drugs.

This phenomenon isn’t unique to the United States. It’s happening around the world. Antibiotic Resistance Threats in the United States 2019 and Drug-resistant N. gonorrhoeae pathogen page pdf icon (November 13, 2019). Gonococcal Isolate Surveillance Project (GISP) Profiles 2017 (April 2019).

The Growing Threat of Multidrug-Resistant Gonorrhea. Related Pages Currently, CDC STD treatment guidelines recommend dual therapy with a cephalosporin antibiotic (ceftriaxone is preferred) and either azithromycin or doxycycline to treat all uncomplicated gonococcal infections among adults and adolescents in the United States.

The growing threat of antibiotic resistant organisms is once again in the spotlight. Prof Jeremy Farrar, the new head of Britain’s biggest medical research charity the Wellcome Trust said it. Currently, the CDC recommends only one cure: a combination of two powerful antibiotics.

Other STDs, such as syphilis and chlamydia, have shown early signs of antibiotic resistance. The threat. Gonorrhea appears to be developing resistance to the two antibiotics that constitute the last available treatment option for the sexually transmitted bacteria, U.S. health officials announced.

In 2013 the CDC released Antibiotic Resistance Threats in the United States, which named antibioticresistant gonorrhea among the three most urgent public health threats in the country.

When people continue to be sexually active while they are taking antibiotics, the spread of antibiotic-resistant STDs is enhanced, because bacteria will have been transmitted before it is obvious that the bacteria have become resistant.

  • Thank you for that amazing video! I think finding a way to boost the immune system naturally is critically in the future. Cold showers, good sleep and some ginger like nutrients are my favourites at the moment:)

  • It is a promising work of this lab, my question & concern is. Is Biofilm a part of antibiotics resistance or a contributing factor, something was said once the Biofilm is broken the old antibiotics, antifungals, antiparasitic medications resume their activities and can get at the bacteria, fungus, parasites that get exposed from protective layer of Biofilm??

  • Just plain old criminal negligence.
    What we need is for pharmacists, vets, drug manufacturers and drug suppliers to stop supplying the latest drugs for livestock.
    Look up the research. When we end up with traces of these drugs in our foods that bugs can overcome. That is why we have resistance to even the latest drugs. This is of even greater concern than patient non compliance.
    This should be made criminal offence internationally.
    Otherwise no one will save us from the pandemic to come.

  • His attitude to the problem is excellent
    and also I liked how He also noticed about ethical issues
    good job
    thanks for all effort

    I think governments all over the world should work to find new kinds of antibiotics but they should not reveal it. they should keep it secret.
    I’m mechanical engineer so I don’t have sufficient knowledge and I might be wrong but as I figured it out, it seems that many organizations including terrorist organizations like ISIS could easily reach these “pan resistance” microbes.
    so in terror days having a solution hidden in your gloves is necessary.
    I hope USA, Europe, Russia, China,Israel and India already have some hidden antibiotics.
    and NO! I’m not from any of these countries:/ Iranian!
