Quick DNA test for malaria drug resistance is life-saver, holds promise for other diseases

Vanderbilt University

Drug-resistant malaria is prevalent in Southeast Asia and may spread. Doctors currently can tell whether powerful malaria drugs will work through or a DNA duplication method that allows for optical detection of a disease’s biomarkers, but it's tough to use in low-resource areas.

DISARM Act Provides Framework Needed to Spur Antibiotic R&D, Protect Existing Drugs

Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA)

The introduction of the Developing an Innovative Strategy for Antimicrobial Resistant Microorganisms -- DISARM -- Act -- by United States Senators Johnny Isakson (R-GA) and Bob Casey (D-PA) Tuesday represents an essential step toward addressing the growing threat of infections that are increasingly resistant to existing treatments. By improving critical Medicare reimbursement for antibiotics and promoting their appropriate use, the legislation has the potential to stabilize the antibiotics market, spur the development of new infection-fighting drugs, and preserve the effectiveness of existing medicines.
