3% patients’ bacteria samples show total resistance (India)

In a worrisome finding, an ongoing survey at Sassoon hospital reveals that three per cent of bacterial infections in samples collected from patients over the past two-three months show total resistance to antibiotics.

Th study showed that three per cent of microbiologically confirmed infections seen in patients’ blood, urine and pus samples are not sensitive to any antibiotic. The state is collecting data from all government medical colleges ahead of planning a legislation on preventing misuse of over-the-counter antibiotics that leads to drug resistance.

At Sassoon’s microbiology department entrusted with the task of collecting samples to analyse drug sensitivity, it was found that 3 per cent of bugs from samples are not sensitive to any antibiotic. A total of 1,588 samples were checked and 275 pathogenic organisms identified of which three per cent -mainly from enterobacteriaceae and pseudomonas groups - was not sensitive to any antibiotic while 75 per cent was resistant to at least three antibiotics.
