  • Antibiotikaresistens leder till svåra värdekonflikter

    [17 Oct 2017] Antibiotikaresistens är ett hot mot både sjukvård och världsekonomi. För att kunna möta denna globala utmaning krävs även insikt i hur problemen är kopplade till etik och värderingar. Det menar filosofiprofessor Christian Munthe som tillsammans med andra forskare vid Göteborgs universitet arrangerar en internationell konferens i november om just etik och antibiotikaresistens.

  • New antibiotic resistance genes identified by CARe scientists

    [12 Oct 2017] In the study, large volumes of DNA data was analyzed to identify novel genes that makes bacteria resistant to antibiotic treatment. Laboratory tests showed that the genes could efficiently degrade carbapenems, one of our most powerful class of antibiotics.

A global challenge

"This serious threat is no longer a prediction for the future, it is happening right now in every region of the world and has the potential to affect anyone, of any age, in any country"

"Without urgent, coordinated action by many stakeholders, the world is headed for a post-antibiotic era, in which common infections and minor injuries which have been treatable for decades can once again kill"

(World Health Organization 2014 regarding the global challenges with antibiotic resistance)


“It is not difficult to make microbes resistant to penicillin in the laboratory by exposing them to concentrations not sufficient to kill them… There is the danger that the ignorant man may easily underdose himself and by exposing his microbes to non-lethal quantities of the drug make them resistant.”

(Alexander Flemming, Nobel Lecture, December 11, 1945)
