• What causes antibiotic resistance? - Kevin Wu

    View full lesson: http://ed.ted.com/lessons/how-antibiotics-become-resistant-over-time-kevin-wu Right now, you are inhabited by trillions of microorganisms. Many of these bacteria are harmless (or even helpful!), but there are a few strains of ‘super bacteria’ that are pretty nasty -- and they’re growing resistant to our antibiotics. Why is this happening? Kevin Wu details the evolution of this problem that presents a big challenge for the future of medicine. Lesson by Kevin Wu, animation by Brett Underhill.

  • The Animation of Antimicrobial Resistance

    Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is resistance of a microorganism to an antimicrobial medicine to which it was previously sensitive. Resistant organisms (they include bacteria, viruses and some parasites) are able to withstand attack by antimicrobial medicines, such as antibiotics, antivirals, and antimalarials, so that standard treatments become ineffective and infections persist and may spread to others.

It also has implications for both food safety and food security and the economic wellbeing of millions of farming households. AMR refers to when micro-organisms – bacteria, fungi, viruses, and parasites – evolve resistance to antimicrobial substances, like antibiotics. This can occur naturally through adaption to the environment, the pace of AMR's spread is now on the uptick due to inappropriate and excessive use of antimicrobials.

It can affect anyone, of any age, in any country. All around the world, bacteria are becoming resistant to the antibiotics used to treat the infections they cause, resulting in longer illnesses & more deaths. At the same time, not enough new antibiotics are being developed to replace older & increasingly ineffective ones. Without urgent action, the world is headed for a ‘post-antibiotic era’ in which common infections & minor injuries which have been treatable for decades can once again kill, & the benefits of advanced medical treatments such as chemotherapy & major surgery will be lost.

In this Discourse, Dame Sally explores why antimicrobial resistance has developed to such an extent that it is now a threat to modern medicine. She looks at how it is spreading across the globe, why we need to urgently change our attitude towards antimicrobials, in particular antibiotics, so that we treat them as a common good – not only in health but also in agriculture, farming, aquaculture and the environment. Antimicrobials are a wonder drug, but only when used effectively. If we do not learn how to look after them, we could see a return to ‘pre-antibiotic era’ where 40% mortality is due to infections – something that is difficult to believe now.

Public health and sustainable food production are facing a serious global threat today: the increasing spread of Antimicrobial Resistance. What is Antimicrobial Resistance? Antimicrobial Resistance refers to bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites that become resistant to anti-microbial drugs. How do microbes become resistant? Antimicrobials, such as antibiotics, are used to kill or stop microbes from growing in humans, animals and plants. Antimicrobial Resistance can occur naturally over time, but overuse and misuse of antimicrobial drugs in humans and in agriculture speed up the development of Antimicrobial Resistance. As a result, the medicines we use to treat common infections are becoming less and less powerful or even useless. How does Antimicrobial Resistance spread? Microbes that are resistant to anti-microbials can be found in people, animals, food, water and the environment. Antimicrobial resistant microbes can spread through the food chain and the environment; between people and animals; or from person to person. The impact of Antimicrobial Resistance. Antimicrobial Resistance affects: 1. Human health Because drugs become less effective leading to more severe illnesses, with an estimated 700.000 human deaths each year. 2. Food supply and agriculture Because production losses lead to food insecurity, and because misuse results in unsafe or contaminated foods. 3. and Antimicrobial Resistance affects the environment, with soil and water polluted with drug residues and resistant microbes. What is needed? A global threat requires a global response bringing together all people and sectors to reduce the use of antimicrobials in humans and animals and to use them selectively, prudently and responsibly. A global threat requires a "One Health" approach with all sectors working together: 1. Veterinarians Prescribing medicines responsibly and only after a proper diagnosis; and advising whenever possible alternatives to antimicrobials, like vaccines. 2. Farmers Through common and good farming practices; and a responsible use of quality antimicrobials, only on professional advice. 3. Food producers Producing, handling and marketing food under hygienic conditions, in a proper and environmentally friendly way. From Global commitment to Local action. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) supports National Action Plans involving all sectors to prevent the development of antimicrobial resistance by: 1. Raising awareness 2. Promoting best practices in food and agriculture, including aquaculture 3. Developing capacity for surveillance and monitoring 4. and always making sure that rules for the safe use are respected. If we use antimicrobials in agriculture responsibly we support sustainable food security and save lives. http://www.fao.org/antimicrobial-resistance/en/ Subscribe! http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=FAOoftheUN Follow #UNFAO on social media! * Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/UNFAO * Google+ - https://plus.google.com/+UNFAO * Instagram - https://instagram.com/unfao/ * LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/company/fao * Twitter - http://www.twitter.com/faoknowledge © FAO: http://www.fao.org

http://www.fao.org/antimicrobial-resistance/en/ Antibiotic resistance is one of the biggest threats to global health today. It poses a major challenge to health, food security, & development. It can affect anyone, of any age, in any country. All around the world, bacteria are becoming resistant to the antibiotics used to treat the infections they cause, resulting in longer illnesses & more deaths. At the same time, not enough new antibiotics are being developed to replace older & increasingly ineffective ones. Without urgent action, the world is headed for a ‘post-antibiotic era’ in which common infections & minor injuries which have been treatable for decades can once again kill, & the benefits of advanced medical treatments such as chemotherapy & major surgery will be lost.
