A new video from researchers at Harvard University shows just how quickly bacteria “learn” to defeat antibiotics. In the stunning two-minute time-lapse recording, viewers can see bacteria develop resistance to increasingly higher doses of antibiotics.
Antibiotic resistance is a pressing global public health problem. This first report on trends in antibiotic use in the United States brings together diverse sources of information in both human health care and animal agriculture settings. It complements and informs efforts to set evidence-based goals aimed at reducing unnecessary antibiotic use.
