Antimicrobial Resistance

A closer look at the antimicrobial resistance (AMR)

Antibiotic resistance refers specifically to the resistance to antibiotics that occurs in common bacteria that cause infections. Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a broader term, encompassing resistance to drugs to treat infections caused by other microbes as well, such as parasites (e.g. malaria), viruses (e.g. Influenza and HIV) and fungi (e.g. Candida).

AMR currently accounts for an estimated 50,000 deaths in the U.S. and Europe. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimate the actual current death toll to 700,000 worldwide. This number will increase to 10 million by 2050, surpassing cancer as the most prevalent cause of death. Without innovative solutions, modern treatments will also fail for organ transplantations, advanced surgery and spinal treatments.

“Resistance has been identified across the world. New forms of resistance emerge and can spread with remarkable speed between continents through people, goods, and animals.”
