  9. 9. Antibiotic resistance crisis An increase in resistant organisms + A limited number of new antimicrobial drugs = a problematic scenario “The pharmaceutical industry has largely turned away from antibiotic research due to the low likelihood of getting a return on investment. Any new class of antibiotics would need to be used sparingly to conserve their effectiveness, meaning sales would be slow.” - WSJ
  10. 10. Post-antibiotic era Currently: - 80% of gonorrhoeal infections are now resistant to antibiotics. - 440,000 new cases of drug-resistant tuberculosis annually. Sally Davies (Britain’s Chief Medical Officer) “Antibiotic resistance should be added to the list of national emergencies”. In the future: - Strep throat to a scraped knee could kill you. - A simple hip replacement would result in 1 and 6 deaths. - The cost to treat drug-resistant cases is estimated to be at least double.
