• What causes antibiotic resistance? - Kevin Wu

    View full lesson: http://ed.ted.com/lessons/how-antibiotics-become-resistant-over-time-kevin-wu Right now, you are inhabited by trillions of microorganisms. Many of these bacteria are harmless (or even helpful!), but there are a few strains of ‘super bacteria’ that are pretty nasty -- and they’re growing resistant to our antibiotics. Why is this happening? Kevin Wu details the evolution of this problem that presents a big challenge for the future of medicine. Lesson by Kevin Wu, animation by Brett Underhill.

  • Maryn McKenna: What do we do when antibiotics don’t work any more?

    Penicillin changed everything. Infections that had previously killed were suddenly quickly curable. Yet as Maryn McKenna shares in this sobering talk, we've squandered the advantages afforded us by that and later antibiotics. Drug-resistant bacteria mean we're entering a post-antibiotic world — and it won't be pretty. There are, however, things we can do ... if we start right now.

  • The Animation of Antimicrobial Resistance

    Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is resistance of a microorganism to an antimicrobial medicine to which it was previously sensitive. Resistant organisms (they include bacteria, viruses and some parasites) are able to withstand attack by antimicrobial medicines, such as antibiotics, antivirals, and antimalarials, so that standard treatments become ineffective and infections persist and may spread to others.

  • ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE

    Antibiotics have saved millions of lives, but their misuse and overuse is making them less effective as bacteria develop resistance. Despite scientists’ warnings, antibiotic prescriptions in many countries continue to soar and antibiotic use in farming is at record levels. As a result, doctors are now seeing infections they can no longer treat. Are we facing the end of modern medicine? An antibiotic apocalypse that takes medicine back to the Dark Ages? Or will researchers outwit the incredibly clever bacteria and find novel ways to beat resistance?

    Dr Marie-Paule Kieny, Assistant Director-General for Health Systems and Innovation, and Dr Keiji Fukuda, Special Representative for Antimicrobial Resistance, talk about antimicrobial resistance (AMR)—what it is, why you should be concerned, and what you can do about it. AMR happens when microorganisms—including bacteria, fungi, viruses, and parasites—change when they are exposed to antimicrobial drugs such as antibiotics, antifungals, antivirals, antimalarials, and anthelmintics. Microorganisms that develop antimicrobial resistance are sometimes referred to as “superbugs”. As a result of misuse of antimicrobial medicines, AMR is increasing and medicines are becoming ineffective. We all have a role to play in tackling AMR.

It can affect anyone, of any age, in any country.

At the same time, not enough new antibiotics are being developed to replace older & increasingly ineffective ones.

In this Discourse, Dame Sally explores why antimicrobial resistance has developed to such an extent that it is now a threat to modern medicine. She looks at how it is spreading across the globe, why we need to urgently change our attitude towards antimicrobials, in particular antibiotics, so that we treat them as a common good – not only in health but also in agriculture, farming, aquaculture and the environment. Antimicrobials are a wonder drug, but only when used effectively. If we do not learn how to look after them, we could see a return to ‘pre-antibiotic era’ where 40% mortality is due to infections – something that is difficult to believe now.
