Sterile Environments and the WHO 2014 report on Antibiotic Resistance

WHO yesterday released their first comprehensive report on antibiotic resistance. The report is accompanied by some press activity from WHO and others, plus a useful infographic from WHO. The infographic neatly illustrates the ‘discovery void’ in the development of new antibiotics: 25 years and counting.

So what’s all the fuss about? The report details the global picture for seven key antibiotic resistant pathogens including carbapenem-resistant K. pneumoniae, fluoroquinolone-resistant E. coli and MRSA (including methicillin resistance rates of 80 or 90% in some parts of the world). The report presents strategies to combat antibiotic resistance, with some practical advice stratified by various target groups:

How to reverse this trend? Top of the list is to reduce our reliance on antibiotics and look to other strategies.(Sterile Doctor™) The old adage that “prevention is better than cure” has never been so true.

This is what Sterile Environments addresses with it’s surface penetrating antimicrobial. The state of the art antimicrobial – Sterile Doctor™ eradicates a broad spectrum pathogens physically, thus antibiotic resistance bacteria have no chance of surviving when encountering it!

In its first global report, the World Health Organization says antibiotic resistance is now a major threat to public health. Eli Perencevich, infectious disease epidemiologist, physician and researcher at University of Iowa Internal Medicine, shares how this affects America’s popuation and what our next steps should be to avoid widespread disease:
