Antibiotic Resistance Surges in Dolphins, Mirroring Humans

Florida Atlantic University

Scientists obtained a total of 733 pathogen isolates from 171 individual wild Bottlenose dolphins in Florida and found that the overall prevalence of resistance to at least one antibiotic for the 733 isolates was 88.2 percent. Resistance was highest to erythromycin, followed by ampicillin. It is likely that these isolates from dolphins originated from a source where antibiotics are regularly used, potentially entering the marine environment through human activities or discharges from terrestrial sources.

Scientists Find Powerful Potential Weapon to Overcome Antibiotic Resistance

University of North Carolina School of Medicine

Staphylococcus aureus bacteria are a major cause of serious infections that often persist despite antibiotic treatment, but scientists at the UNC School of Medicine have now discovered a way to make these bacteria much more susceptible to some common antibiotics.

McMaster Researchers Reveal the Ancient Natural History of Antibiotic Production and Resistance

McMaster University

The study is the first to put antibiotic biosynthesis and resistance into an evolutionary context. The findings will help to guide the future discovery of new antibiotics and antibiotic alternatives which are medicines that are vitally needed given the current global threat of antimicrobial resistance.

Bacterial Resistance to Two Critical Antibiotics Widespread in Southeast Asia

Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center

Resistance to two critical antibiotic types, one a “drug of last resort” when all others fail against some “superbugs,” are widely distributed in Southeast Asia, raising the risk of untreatable infections, say a team of investigators led by Georgetown University Medical Center.
