Experts To Discuss Antimicrobial Resistance Prevention, Action At Berlin Meeting

The Guardian: ‘Antibiotic apocalypse’: doctors sound alarm over drug resistance
“…In the words of England’s chief medical officer, Sally Davies: ‘The world is facing an antibiotic apocalypse.’ … That terrifying prospect will be the focus of a major international conference to be held in Berlin this week. Organized by the U.K. government, the Wellcome Trust, the U.N., and several other national governments, the meeting will be attended by scientists, health officers, pharmaceutical chiefs, and politicians. Its task is to try to accelerate measures to halt the spread of drug resistance, which now threatens to remove many of the major weapons currently deployed by doctors in their war against disease…” (McKie, 10/8).
