The Antibiotic Apocalypse is Coming!
It's been less than 90 years since Alexander Fleming discovered penicillin, but scientists are worried that the world is on the verge of returning to an era without antibiotics! Researchers have discovered bacteria in China that can defeat even the "antibiotic of last resort," and they worry it could be the possible start of an "antibiotic apocalypse." MCR-1, the mutated gene that resists colistin, the antibiotic used when all others fail, appears to already be widespread among livestock in China and is beginning to appear in an alarming number of human infections. Researcher Timothy Walsh says if the mutation spreads worldwide, "which is a case of when-- not if-- and the gene aligns itself with other [antibiotic-resistant] genes, then we will have very likely reached the start of the post-antibiotic era." But don't freefall into panic just yet. The good news is a powerful new class of antibiotics is currently being developed, and there may be many more in the pipeline. Keep your fingers crossed. (BBC)
