Scientists: the era of antibiotics is coming to the end of

The spread of bacteria resistant to most known antibiotics, is no less a threat to humanity than global warming and other possible disasters, experts fear. According to chief medical officer Sally Davies of England, the bacteria become immune to many modern medicines, and new antibiotics is simply no.

Speaking before a parliamentary commission, Davis expressed concern about the scale of the problem. According to her, in the near future, even routine surgery may endanger the lives of patients.

"We are to" grow "resistant infections, too often resorting to the use of standard types of antibiotics"

"It is clear that global warming — is not a major threat to humanity — said Davis. — Apocalypse could come in 20 years, when, say, surgery to replace the hip joint, can lead to death, because we simply will not antibiotics."

Antibiotics ended

The appearance of antibiotics is one of the major achievements of modern medicine. But bacteria evolve and adapt to them.

There are cases of resistant strains of E.coli and the tubercle bacillus, the mere words "Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus" leads many doctors in horror.

In addition, says the head physician of England, is now just one antibiotic that can cope with gonorrhea.

"This is a very serious problem caused by the inefficient use of antibiotic drugs in the world — says Davis. — We are to" grow "resistant infections, too often resorting to the use of standard types of antibiotics."

Possible solutions for the problems Davis stated in his official report, which will be released in March.

The World Health Organization says that if we do not take serious measures, the era of antibiotics may come to an end.

Professor Hugh Pennington of Aberdeen University, emphasizes that drug resistance was "very, very serious problem."

"Some go abroad for medical treatment, while others go as sex tourists and return home with gonorrhea, which is a big problem in terms of drug-resistant strains. And then, many countries have TB" — warns an expert.

"Do not expect to see a panacea, new antibiotics is no more."
