Super bacteria crisis on the way

Thailand is facing a health crisis from antimicrobial resistance which could lead to a more complicated healthcare situation and higher costs in treating bacterial infections, health experts have warned.

The National Antimicrobial Resistance Surveillance Centre monitored the situation at 28 hospitals nationwide during 2000-2010 and found worrying signs of antibiotic resistance among several bacteria strains.

An antimicrobial kills or inhibits the growth of microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi or protozoans.

Carbapenems and Cefoperazone-Sulbactam are considered the antibiotics of last resort for many bacterial infections. However, Carbapenem resistance among Acinebacter baumannii, a superbug which causes hospital-acquired infections among in- and out-patients, rose dramatically from 1-2% in 2000 to 60-62% in 2010, according to the report.

The report on anti-microbial resistance in Thailand also identified up to 80% ampicillin resistance among the Escherichia coli bacterium, one of the most frequent causes of urinary tract infections and blood poisoning.
