Emerging sex disease MG 'could become next superbug' - BBC News
What is MG?
Mycoplasma genitalium is a bacterium that can cause inflammation of the urethra in men, causing discharge from the penis and making it painful to urinate.

In women, it can cause inflammation of the reproductive organs (womb and fallopian tubes) too, causing pain and possibly a fever and some bleeding.

You can get it by having unprotected sex with someone who has it. Condoms can prevent this spread.

It was first identified in the UK in the 1980s and is thought to affect 1-2% of the general population.

MG does not always cause symptoms and will not always need treatment, but it can be missed or mistaken for a different sexually transmitted infection, such as Chlamydia.

Private surgery 'needs better patient safety regulation' - BBC News
In an open letter, surgical leaders said they had concerns about the availability of patient safety information in private hospitals. And they called for a stronger focus on patient safety initiatives, to match those in the NHS.
The Royal College of Surgeons (RCS) urged the next government to consider ensuring private hospitals had to report unexpected deaths and serious injuries in the same way as hospitals in the NHS. And it repeated its call for better regulation of cosmetic surgery which is mostly carried out in private clinics.

Almost untreatable superbug CPE poses serious threat to patients, doctors warn | Society | The Guardian
New figures show that four times as many people have died as had previously been reported in an outbreak in Manchester.

In 2009, the first cases of a type of CPE called Klebsiella pneumoniae carbapenemase were detected. In 2014, the hospital trust confirmed that 14 people had died from this infection, contracted within the hospital, in the previous four years.

But the Bureau’s research shows that there have been 61 deaths in the last seven years, including a six-year-old boy with leukaemia who caught the infection while undergoing a bone marrow transplant.

Rise of deadly super bugs in hospitals linked to Tory austerity cuts - The London Economic
An ‘appalling’ rise in deadly super bugs E.coli and MRSA is linked to the Conservatives cutting and outsourcing cleaning contracts, according to GMB.

Three thousand cleaners have been slashed from the NHS wage bill since 2011/12, new figures reveal – despite hospitals treating more than a million more patients every year since then.

Meanwhile in the past year cases of E.coli, MRSA and MSSA – a strain of the MRSA bacteria – have rocketed by more than 8,000.

New form of superbug found in Scotland for the first time (From Herald Scotland)
A NEW form of superbug regarded as a “substantial public health risk” has been found in Scotland for the first time. The bacteria, discovered in a salmonella patient who returned from South East Asia, contains a genetic mutation that makes it resistant to the powerful "last-resort antibiotic" colistin.

Referred to as the mcr-1, the gene appears to be seamlessly transferred between bacteria which could make anti-biotic treatments redundant to dangerous strains of disease such as E.coli.

Super-gonorrhoea's spread 'causing huge concern'
Doctors have expressed "huge concern" that super-gonorrhoea has spread widely across England and to gay men.
The new superbug prompted a national alert last year when it emerged in Leeds, as one of the main treatments had become useless against it.
Public Health England acknowledges measures to contain the outbreak have been of "limited success".
Doctors fear the sexually transmitted infection, which can cause infertility, could soon become untreatable.
Cases of super-gonorrhoea have now been detected in the West Midlands, London and southern England.
Only 34 cases have been officially confirmed in laboratory testing, >>> but this is likely to be the tip of the iceberg of an infection that can be symptomless. <<< + cuts to public health budget! //&! bit.ly/23PdjDp

Dame Sally Davies has written to all GPs and pharmacies to ensure they are prescribing the correct drugs after the rise of "super-gonorrhoea" in Leeds. Her warning comes after concerns were raised that some patients were not getting both of the antibiotics needed to clear the infection. Sexual health doctors said gonorrhoea was "rapidly" developing resistance. [...] Gonorrhoea is the second most common sexually transmitted infection in England and cases are soaring.

'Almost too late': fears of global superbug crisis in wake of antibiotic misuse | Society | The Guardian
Despite European Union regulations aiming to cut back on the unnecessary use of antibiotics, Dr Brown believes it will take more than just legislation to tackle the superbug crisis. Market forces will need to be compelled to cut usage, perhaps when prompted by a shift in public opinion, he said. “Those with a vested interest find ways around legislation. So, in addition to public policy we will need also the power of market forces,” he added. “When the public start demanding meat that has not seen antibiotics - because they understand that the meat may contain antibiotic resistant bacteria - only then will real progress be made. We need education about the threat.”

Bacteria that resist 'last antibiotic' found in UK - BBC News
[ over 80% of antibiotic use - livestock farming. also use of colistin. self-regulated. ] Bacteria that resist the most common antibiotic of last resort - colistin - have been discovered in the UK. Officials say the threat to human health is low, but is under ongoing review. Scientists warned the world was on the cusp of a post-antibiotic era when such resistance was discovered in China last month. Now checks have discovered the same resistance on three farms and in samples of human infections. [...] Colistin-resistance was discovered in fifteen of them, including samples of Salmonella and E. Coli. [...] The DNA that gives bacteria resistance to colistin - the mcr-1 gene - can spread rapidly between species. The concern is that colistin-resistance will now find its way into other superbugs to create infections that doctors cannot treat. //&! youtu.be/M2xZBngTIas //&! bit.ly/1O5oHWa //&! bit.ly/1MW3FYW //&! bbc.in/1PkB6G9 //&! 50-50 chance to salvage situation - bit.ly/1Zmx8Qg

Antibiotic resistance: World on cusp of 'post-antibiotic era' - BBC News
People will die, warns antibiotic expert - bbc.in/1STI2so - The world is on the cusp of a "post-antibiotic era", scientists have warned after finding bacteria resistant to drugs used when all other treatments have failed. They identified bacteria able to shrug off the drug of last resort - colistin - in patients and livestock in China. They said that resistance would spread around the world and raised the spectre of untreatable infections. It is likely resistance emerged after colistin was overused in farm animals. Bacteria becoming completely resistant to treatment - also known as the antibiotic apocalypse - could plunge medicine back into the dark ages. &! bit.ly/1kPkevq - In China wurden Darmbakterien entdeckt, gegen die selbst hochwirksame Antibiotika nicht helfen.

Multiresistente Keime: Weniger MRSA, mehr ESBL - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Die Resistenzrate bei einem der häufigsten multiresistenten Erreger, dem MRSA (Methicillin-resistenter Staphylococcus aureus), geht laut RKI in Deutschland stetig zurück. Die Resistenzrate bei VRE (Vancomycin-resistente Enterokokken) bleibt seit einigen Jahren mit Schwankungen auf konstantem Niveau, das jedoch über dem europäischen Durchschnitt liegt. Bei anderen Erregern wie den ESBL (Beta-Lactamase produzierende Enterobakterien) gibt es einen leichten, aber stetigen Anstieg.

Vogelgrippe: Was wurde aus H5N1? - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Die H5N1-Viren, über die wir heute sprechen, sind nicht mehr dieselben wie jene, die man erstmals 1996 beschrieben hat. Grippeviren verändern sich schnell. Glücklicherweise seien die Erreger aber nicht ansteckender für Menschen oder besser von Mensch zu Mensch übertragbar geworden, teilt die WHO auf Anfrage mit. Ungefährlicher sind sie jedoch auch nicht. "Im vergangenen Jahr haben sich einige H5-Viren, die mit den in Asien zirkulierenden H5N1-Viren eng verwandt sind, in anderen Teilen der Welt ausgebreitet und sich dort mit lokalen Vogelgrippeviren vermischt, sodass neue Viren entstanden sind - etwa H5N2 sowie ein neues nordamerikanisches H5N1", heißt es seitens der WHO. Bei solchen Vermischungen können Viren entstehen, die das Potenzial haben, eine weltweite Grippewelle unter Menschen auszulösen. "Diese Vermischungen und ihre Folgen sind unvorhersehbar und besorgniserregend."

Last-Resort Antibiotics In Jeopardy As Use Rises Globally : Goats and Soda : NPR
"The concern is that the consumption of last-resort drugs has also gone up significantly since 2010. If drug resistance develops to these antibiotics, we have nothing else left to use." [...] Over the past decade, bacteria have evolved to evade nearly every type of antibiotic. Most of us are familiar with MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus), which causes deadly skin infections. But there's also a superbug version of gonorrhea, and a vicious gut pathogen, called carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae, or CRE, which may kill up to 50 percent of people it infects. Doctors still have a few potent weapons against these pathogens, such as cephalosporins for gonorrhea and polymixins for CRE. But to keep these antibiotics effective, we need to make sure their use is limited.

All poultry should be handled hygienically and cooked thoroughly."

Multiresistente Keime: US-Behörde CDC warnt vor tödlichen Bakterien - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Zum ersten Mal hat die US-Regierung schätzen lassen, wie viele Menschen in den Vereinigten Staaten jedes Jahr an Infektionen mit Bakterien sterben, die gegen mehrere Antibiotika resistent sind. Die US-Seuchenschutzbehörde Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) spricht von 23.000 Todesfällen pro Jahr, das wären in etwa so viele wie bei der Grippe. + http://www.nytimes.com/2013/09/17/health/cdc-report-finds-23000-deaths-a-year-from-antibiotic-resistant-infections.html

Sex Superbug Could Be 'Worse Than AIDS'
An antibiotic-resistant strain of gonorrhea—now considered a superbug—has some analysts saying that the bacteria's effects could match those of AIDS. [...] This gonorrhea strain, HO41, was discovered in Japan two years ago in a 31-year-old female sex worker who had been screened in 2009. The bacteria has since been found in Hawaii, California and Norway. [...] nearly one in 20 hospital patients become infected with one [Superbug], according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. [...] More than 800,000 of STD cases reported are gonorrhea infections, with most occurring in people between the ages of 15 and 24. [...] Gonorrhea can be hard to detect. It often shows no symptoms in about half of women and in about 5 percent of men. Gonorrhea infection rates were at historic lows until two years ago, according to the CDC.

Avoiding Chicken To Avoid Bladder Infections - YouTube
Subscribe for free to Dr. Greger's videos at: http://bit.ly/nutritionfactsupdates DESCRIPTION: Handling chicken can lead to the colonization of one's colon with antibiotic resistant E. coli that may result in bladder infections in women. I originally explored this topic in Chicken Out of UTIs (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/chicken-out-of-utis/), but decided I needed to take a much deeper dive, especially in light of the cross-contamination issue, which I also previously touched on in Food Poisoning Bacteria Cross-Contamination (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/food-poisoning-bacteria-cross-contamination/) and Fecal Contamination of Sushi (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/fecal-contamination-of-sushi/). More on the insanity of feeding antibiotics to farm animals by the ton in: • Drug Residues in Meat (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/drug-residues-in-meat/) • Meat Mythcrushers (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/meat-mythcrushers/) • Lowering Dietary Antibiotic Intake (http://nutri...

Antibiotic-resistant diseases pose 'apocalyptic' threat, top expert says | Society | The Guardian
Changes in modern medicine have exacerbated the problem by making patients more susceptible to infections. For example, cancer treatments weaken the immune system, and the use of catheters increases the chances of bugs entering the bloodstream.

The last antibiotic: Drug companies run out of weapons against the very same superbugs they helped create
Just how bad is the situation? Even Dr. Margaret Chan, the director general of the World Health Organization, couldn't deny the reality of the situation. "Things as common as strep throat or a child's scratched knee could once again kill," she said in a recent keynote address (http://www.who.int/dg/speeches/2012/amr_20120314/en/index.html). "Antimicrobial resistance is on the rise in Europe, and elsewhere in the world. We are losing our first-line antimicrobials... For patients infected with some drug-resistant pathogens, mortality has been shown to increase by around 50%," she said.

[...]

Prospects for turning this situation around look dim. A post-antibiotic era means, in effect, an end to modern medicine as we know it.

BBC News - Battling the bacterial threat to modern medicine
"Antibiotics are losing their effectiveness at a rate that is both alarming and irreversible," said the Chief Medical Officer for England and Wales, Dame Sally Davies, earlier this month.

Microbiologist at the University of Birmingham, Prof Laura Piddock, told BBC's Newsnight that antibiotics are miracle drugs which underpin all areas of 21st Century medicine.

"But if we allow resistance to proliferate, then we undermine all of those medical advances," she said.

[...]

They are concerned that we overuse these drugs, most recently through online sales on the internet.

Prof Piddock explained that when you take an antibiotic you are having an impact not only on your health, but potentially on that of other people too.

BBC iPlayer - Horizon: 2012-2013: Defeating the Superbugs
Documentary about scientists who are tracking the emergence of 'superbugs' - dangerous bacteria resistant to antibiotics - around the world.

- MRSA and other antibiotic resistant infections and diseases (some recent new cases of Tuberculosis in South East Asia) pose a major public health risk.

History doesn't repeat, but it rhymes. Another similar case of Black Death which will decimate significant percentage of world population will occur again one way or the other.

Finding new antibiotics is of critical concern. But Drug companies incentives to research isn't matched by a 'possible threat'.

Prevalent use for negligible illnesses (using a cannonball to shoot a bird) and abuse of antibiotics in meat and poultry industry makes current antibiotics useless against new superbug strains.

- Rise in UK drug-resistant tuberculosis cases
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-18717811
The [Health Protection Agency (HPA)] agency said it was disappointed by the increase which "remains a concern".
