The European Gonococcal Antimicrobial Surveillance Programme has revealed high levels of azithromycin resistance in Europe, however, these have remained relatively stable.
Changes in both antibiotic concentration and nutrient availability can push populations beyond a tipping point, creating irreversible shifts in community composition to drug-resistance.
Researchers have discovered a high prevalence of colistin-resistant E. coli in the Vietnamese town of Nguyen Xa, according to research presented at ASM Microbe.
The largest genetic study of malaria parasites in Southeast Asia has revealed that resistance to the most powerful antimalarial drugs has been spreading unreported for years in Cambodia.

Comparison of Clinical & Laboratory Standards Institute standards in antimicrobial susceptibility among the carbapenemase producing Enterobacteriaceae
In this article, carbapenem antimicrobial susceptibility testing profiles were determined in a population of Klebsiella pneumoniae, and their resistance assessed based on previous and current Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute criteria.
