About this product
- DescriptionThe discovery of antibiotics in the early 20th century fundamentally transformed human and veterinary medicine. Antibiotics w save millions of lives each year in the United States and around the world. The rise of antibiotic-resistant bacterial strains, however, represents a serious threat to public health and the ecomy. If the effectiveness of antibiotics (drugs that kill or inhibit the growth of bacteria) is lost, we will longer be able to reliably and rapidly treat bacterial infections, including bacterial pneumonias, foodborne illnesses, and healthcare-associated infections. As more strains of bacteria become resistant to an ever-larger number of antibiotics, our drug choices have become increasingly limited and more expensive and, in some cases, nexistent. In a world with few effective antibiotics, modern medical advances such as surgery, transplants, and chemotherapy may longer be viable due to the threat of infection. This book examines the national strategy and plan for combating antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
