Assessing Risks of Antibiotic Resistance

Survery of Global Expert-Researchers

The hazards of antibiotic resistances remain high,
Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT), December 15, 2017.

A Survey of Antibiotic Resistance Researchers

"...conducted online interviews with 375 researchers worldwide. The survey focused on researchers who, in the past three years, have published relevant studies in international journals."

"The researchers interviewed agree that countermeasures are required urgently. Almost all survey participants (98.4 percent) fear serious or very serious consequences if nothing is done against the propagation of resistant pathogens."

66 percent said the terms, "global disaster" or the "onset of a post-antibiotic age", are more or less justified," Wow.

To counter this rising "global disaster," the experts said, "...the two most effective measures would be to reduce use of antibiotics in medicine and to improve hygiene in hospitals. It is important, moreover, to reduce use of antibiotics in livestock farming and to develop vaccines, alternative therapies and, eventually, new agents against resistant bacteria."
