Bacterial Flora of Remote Tribespeople Carries Antibiotic Resistance Genes

An international team of scientists, including researchers from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, have found antibiotic resistance genes in the bacterial flora of a South American tribe that never before had been exposed to antibiotic drugs. The findings suggest that bacteria in the human body have had the ability to resist antibiotics since long before such drugs were ever used to treat disease.
