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 is the most complex and pressing challenge since climate change. Chief Medical Officer Dame Sally Davies discusses the problem. Apologies for the audio issues with this talk - we had a few technical difficulties while filming. Watch the Q&A: https://youtu.be/B5jSMZ8EQBI Subscribe for regular science videos: http://bit.ly/RiSubscRibe Having secured support nationally from the Prime Minister and UK Government for the need to action, Dame Sally Davies is working tirelessly internationally to increase global awareness and secure commitments to action on antibiotic resistance. 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 glob...
Find out more about the history of antibiotics, their crucial role for humanity and the importance of following the rules of antibiotics to avoid antibiotic resistance.
Penicillin changed everything. Infections that had previously killed were suddenly quickly curable. Yet as Maryn McKenna shares in this sobering talk, we've squandered the advantages afforded us by that and later antibiotics. Drug-resistant bacteria mean we're entering a post-antibiotic world — and it won't be pretty. There are, however, things we can do ... if we start right now.

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.
Antimicrobial resistance is the topic of one of three World Health +SocialGood shows being broadcast live on 24-26 May 2016. The shows are produced by WHO in collaboration with the UN Foundation during the World Health Assembly in Geneva.

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.
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. Kishony, R. Groleau, T. Lieberman, R. Chait
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?

Support the World Health Organization (WHO) 5 May 2017 - Hand Hygiene Day - calls to action. Hand hygiene is at the core of effective infection prevention to combat antibiotic resistance. Pledge your support to the global campaign by posting your photographs and selfies using the hashtags #HandHygiene #AntibioticResistance #CleanHands or any of those combinations on Instagram or Twitter or by sending them to http://www.cleanhandssavelives.org/ or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org With the support of the WHO collaborating Center on Patient Safety at the University of Geneva Hospitals and Faculty of Medicine (HUG), Geneva.

A lecture covering mechanisms of antibiotic resistance, principles behind susceptibility testing including understanding the MIC, interpretation of antibiotic susceptibility reports, and the factors contributing to increasing antibiotic resistance worldwide.
Dr Marie-Paule Kieny, Assistant Director-General for Health Systems and Innovation, and Dr Keiji Fukuda, Special Representative for Antimicrobial Resistance, talk about antimicrobial resistance (AMR)—what it is, why you should be concerned, and what you can do about it. AMR happens when microorganisms—including bacteria, fungi, viruses, and parasites—change when they are exposed to antimicrobial drugs such as antibiotics, antifungals, antivirals, antimalarials, and anthelmintics. Microorganisms that develop antimicrobial resistance are sometimes referred to as “superbugs”. As a result of misuse of antimicrobial medicines, AMR is increasing and medicines are becoming ineffective. We all have a role to play in tackling AMR.

What can be done change our path and stop superbugs in their tracks? Victor Nizet, MD discusses the roots and scope of the problem as well as novel solutions.

The rise of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) has become one of the biggest threats to global health and is intensified by the lack of new antimicrobials being developed and approved. Watch this video to learn more about the financial and regulatory challenges facing emerging antimicrobial companies and how policymakers can help.
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. This video explains FAO's role in providing support to countries to develop and implement their national action plan to reduce the threat of antimicrobial resistance (AMR).

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.
