Annual Report Antimicrobial Resistance Research and Surveillance Network

  08 September 2021

The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) has been supporting research on antimicrobial resistance through the Antimicrobial Resistance Research & Surveillance Network (AMRSN) since 2013. The data collected from the network has enabled compilation of drug resistance data on six pathogenic groups on antimicrobial resistance from the country. (i)Enterobacterales causing sepsis (ii) Gram-negative nonfermenters (iii) Typhoidal Salmonella (iv) Diarrhoeagenic bacterial organisms, (v) Grampositives: staphylococci and enterococci, and (vi) Fungal pathogens from thirty tertiary care hospitals/laboratories across the country. Data collected from the network is used to track resistance trends and to better understand mechanisms of resistance in the key priority pathogens using genomics and whole genome sequencing (WGS).
