• 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.

    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.

Although it is estimated that 700,000 people die every year of bacteria that are resistant to one or several antibiotics, only a few truly new antibiotics have been introduced to the market during the last decades. Hans Rosling also stressed the need for new alternatives to combat antibiotic resistance bacteria and claimed this problem to be equal or even tougher than global climate change.

    Antibiotic resistance is a major, growing threat to human health worldwide. There is an urgent need to develop easy-to-use, sensitive tests that can detect drug resistance at the bedside so that appropriate, potentially life-saving antibiotics can be prescribed without delay. However, traditional clinical tests used to determine antibiotic resistance are based on cell culture techniques or on polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assays, neither of which is suitable for point-of-care diagnosis. A team at the University of Southampton led by professor Hywel Morgan has now developed a cost-effective, highly sensitive and portable digital microfluidic device that exploits RPA and on-chip fluorescence to quantitatively detect antimicrobial resistance genes in DNA extracted from patient samples.

    http://www.fao.org/antimicrobial-resistance/en/ Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a major global threat of increasing concern to human and animal health. 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.

  • ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE

    Antibiotics have saved millions of lives, but their misuse and overuse is making them less effective as bacteria develop resistance. Despite scientists’ warnings, antibiotic prescriptions in many countries continue to soar and antibiotic use in farming is at record levels. As a result, doctors are now seeing infections they can no longer treat. Are we facing the end of modern medicine? An antibiotic apocalypse that takes medicine back to the Dark Ages? Or will researchers outwit the incredibly clever bacteria and find novel ways to beat resistance?

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

Antibiotics have saved millions of lives, but their misuse and overuse is making them less effective as bacteria develop resistance. Despite scientists’ warnings, antibiotic prescriptions in many countries continue to soar and antibiotic use in farming is at record levels. As a result, doctors are now seeing infections they can no longer treat. Are we facing the end of modern medicine? An antibiotic apocalypse that takes medicine back to the Dark Ages? Or will researchers outwit the incredibly clever bacteria and find novel ways to beat resistance?

AMR develops when microbes like bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites change their biological makeup so that the antimicrobial used to treat them become less effective or do not work at all.

A giant petri dish exposes the evolutionary dynamics behind antibiotic resistance. Read more: http://ow.ly/xHi03041R48 E. coli evolved resistance to antibiotics as they grew across a giant petri dish coated with increasing concentrations of drugs. At the end of the experiment, the bacteria near the center of the plate could withstand a dose of antibiotics 1,000 times higher than that tolerated by the starting bacteria. Video: M. Baym, R.
