  1. 1.  By Lynn Hall
  2. 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. 3. Bacteria can resist theeffects of antibioticsand multiply
  4. 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. 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. 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
