Gonorrhea surveillance study maps antibiotic resistance across Europe

EurekAlert 15 May 2018

The first European-wide genomic survey of gonorrhoea has mapped antibiotic resistance in this sexually transmitted disease throughout the continent. Researchers at The Centre for Genomic Pathogen Surveillance (CGPS), the Wellcome Sanger Institute, European Centre for Disease Control, and their collaborators also showed that using DNA sequencing data they could accurately determine antibiotic resistance and identify incorrect laboratory test results. 42 kata lagi

How did gonorrhea become a drug-resistant superbug?

(University of North Carolina Health Care 4 April 2018) UNC School of Medicine researchers have identified mutations to the bacterium Neisseria gonnorrhoeae that enable resistance to ceftriaxone that could lead to the global spread of ceftriaxone-resistant ‘superbug’ strains. 9 kata lagi
