In this panel discussion marking World Antibiotic Awareness Week our experts will provide insights on the key topics in the current debate around antimicrobial resistance – from bench to bedside – including stewardship, drug and treatment development, resistance mechanisms and a ‘One Health’ approach.
Research presented at IDWeek has discovered that users of the social networking app, Grindr, took more risks and had more partners but were more likely to use, or be open to using, PrEP compared with those who didn’t use the app.
Two analyses supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s US influenza data have demonstrated that immunization reduces the risk of hospitalization in children and death in adults
Research has suggested that prophylactic antibiotics are overprescribed before dental visits, and that taking them could actually increase the likelihood of adverse effects.
Research from IDWeek has suggested that conventionally raised poultry is twice as likely to contain multidrug-resistant Salmonella when compared with poultry labelled antibiotic-free or organic.
What role might the healthcare environment play in infections? And how could this be mitigated? We speak to Stephanie Dancer about the healthcare environment and its role in healthcare-associated infections.
Researchers have observed a bacterial mechanism that allows bacteria to change form and resist antibiotics, without the transfer of resistance genes.
Take a look at this month’s industry headlines including FDA warnings over hepatitis C drugs in patients with liver injury, a new infectious diseases strategy for the UK and priority review for Merck’s Ebola vaccine.
In this Ask The Experts we talk to two experts about issues surrounding healthcare-associated infections and infection prevention and control, including the role of surveillance, the involvement of patients and the importance of behavior change.
