Plan to change eight state labs in India into antibiotics research hubs

  26 February 2020

Pune National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) will be strengthening eight state labs to focus on antibiotic research. These labs would be under the state medical colleges and mostly located in north India. The state labs which come under the state government medical colleges will analyse the data based on the patients who visit these hospitals to check on the resistance rate of bacteria.

The details were given by Dr Lata Kapoor, joint director NCDC, who presented a talk on the subject antimicrobial resistance (AMR) containment country response at Sassoon General Hospital on Tuesday. Kapoor said that the proportion at which resistant bacteria and viruses are coming up is inversely proportional to the antibiotics for those bacteria.
