    • Description:
      $547,819 Funding for AR Activities Fiscal Year 2017 Candida auris, a resistant fungus that can cause deadly infections, was identified in Oklahoma. CDC provides resources to identify and contain resistant infections, like C. auris. After it emerged in the U.S. in 2016, the AR Lab Network regional labs began providing specialized testing to states fighting new threats. Since the initial case of C. auris was identified, Oklahoma has contained its spread and no further cases have been detected. Funding to local health departments: $416,039 - RAPID DETECTION & RESPONSE to emerging drug-resistant germs is critical to contain the spread of these infections. With 2016 funding, Oklahoma increased its capacity to respond to emerging threats. The state public health lab initiated lab testing to detect and confirm HAI/AR threats, including the “nightmare bacteria” CRE, and began development of a CRE surveillance database. $131,780 - FOOD SAFETY projects protect communities by rapidly identifying drug-resistant foodborne bacteria to stop and solve outbreaks and improve prevention. Oklahoma implemented whole genome sequencing of Listeria, Salmonella, Campylobacter and E. coli isolates submitted to its lab and began uploading sequence data into PulseNet for nationwide monitoring of outbreaks and trends. In Fiscal Year 2018, Oklahoma will begin simultaneously monitoring these isolates for resistance genes. When outbreaks are detected, local CDC-supported epidemiologists investigate the cases to stop spread. Publication date from document properties. Oklahoma-2017-CDC-AR-Investments.pdf
