  • 1.  By Lynn Hall
  • 2.  Penicillin introduced to public in 1944 o 14% bacteria resistance within 2 years of introduction o 59% bacteria resistance by 1949 Research is being done at The Ohio State University o Regulating Antibiotics will help reduce antibiotic resistance
  • 3. Bacteria can resist theeffects of antibioticsand multiply
  • 4.  One of the world’s most pressing public health problems Bacteria has become stronger o Less responsive to antibiotics o Spreads quickly o Difficult to cure o Expensive to treat
  • 5.  Antibiotic use: o Promotes development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria o Sensitive bacteria killed o Resistant germs left to multiply Improper use of antibiotics Over 100 antibiotics available
  • 6.  Do not take antibiotics for Viral Infections: o Colds o Flu o Most Coughs and Bronchitis o Sore Throats (except those resulting from strep throat) o Some Ear Infections
  • 7.  Achievements of modern medicine put at risk o Effectiveness of medicine lowered o Success lowered for treatments for • Transplantation, chemotherapy, and major surgery Global trade and travel are affected Multi-drug resistant Tuberculosis (MDR-TB) Extensively drug-resistant Tuberculosis (XDR-TB) Resistance to anti-malaria drugs MRSA from hospital-acquired infections
  • 8. Smart use of Antibiotics: Do not take for viral infections Take exactly as directed, completing entire course Do not save some for next time you are sick Do not take someone else’s prescription Do not press your healthcare provider to prescribe if not necessary Proper hand-washing and cleaning of surfaces
