The global medical technology company, BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company) aims to improve clinical laboratory quality as a part of its five-year Antimicrobial Resistance Action Plan for Viet Nam.
At Seafood Expo North America on Monday, 18 March, companies representing about 80 percent of the total production of salmon in Chile vowed to reduce their use of antibiotics and seek a “Good Alternative” rating from the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch program by 2025.

The authors conclude that findings are consistent with widespread distribution of hospital-adapted VREfm beyond acute healthcare settings with extensive release of VREfm into the
environment in the East of England.
Bacteria that are resistant to a class of powerful ‘last resort’ antibiotics – carbapenems – have been recently reported in a dog for the first time in the UK.
Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) are among the world’s most common bacterial infections, affecting around 50 per cent of women and five per cent of men. They can present as low-level cystitis or cause debilitating and potentially life-threatening conditions such as blood sepsis and kidney infection. Each year, treatment costs run to billions of dollars worldwide.
Conceived during Germany’s 2017 Group of 20 presidency, a new hub for efforts to combat antimicrobial resistance is now taking shape in the country’s capital, Berlin.
Findings suggest that nonclonal resistance gene dissemination is common in the community and that diverse plasmids carrying AMR genes presents a significant challenge for understanding the movement of AMR in a community.
Using the functionalities of CLC Genomics Workbench antimicrobial resistance causing mutations can be detected for any desired microbe using any custom designed variant database.
Nearly 40 per cent of parents in the UAE had never heard of antibiotic resistance and thought that in the last 12 months antibiotics given to their children have actually proven to be helpful, a survey conducted by a city hospital has revealed.
About 28 million people could fall into extreme poverty by 2050 if high antimicrobial resistance is not addressed, a meeting has heard.
The products of wastewater treatment have been found to contain trace amounts of antibiotic resistant DNA. These products are often reintroduced to the environment and water supply, potentially resulting in the spread of antibiotic resistance. As such, researchers at the University of Southern California Viterbi School of Engineering have been studying the development of these potentially harmful and dangerous genes in wastewater treatment processes.
