I was searching for interesting antibiotic news and I found this article that tells of a super-bug that’s resistant to almost all known drugs. I really enjoyed it and here is a sentence that proves it’s danger.
“Scientists in China sampling bacteria from meat and hospitalized patients found a new gene called MCR-1 that confers resistance to colistin, a drug that is currently used as a last resort when all other antibiotics have failed.”
This is very worrisome news that the original blog explains better than I ever could. Be sure to visit it by clicking on the link provided below.
