Detect and protect against antibiotic resistance : CDC’s initiative will speed up antibiotic resistance detection and production of new antibiotics and diagnostics
Corporate Authors:National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases (U.S.)
Description:Hospital labs have the ability to identify most but not all types of antibiotic resistance, especially novel forms of resistance.
The regional labs will have cutting-edge technology that can provide more information on where detected resistance came from and how it is related to other types of resistance across the country.
Through the regional lab network, CDC and public health will be able to accumulate real-time, actionable information about dangerous antibiotic resistant threats.
Using samples from the Resistant-Bacteria Bank, industry and academic institutions will team up with CDC to help patients … receive earlier diagnosis and effective treatment.
From this bank, samples will be available to industry and academics for diagnostic and drug development.
