Learning about Antibiotic Resistance

Learning about Antibiotic Resistance


I want to talk about antibiotic
resistance can we talk a little bit about that? Sure we use antibiotics for
bacterias and in the past with the first antibody that we had available was
penicillin and it was in the forties within the second war and rapidly
after we introduced the penicillin it happens that the bacterias are changing
and they are changing in a way that sometimes allowed them to become
resistant to that antibiotic specifically so we need to use a
different antibiotics so that’s been going on since we created antibiotics
what we are seeing right now though is that the amount of resistantance of these
bacterias are so huge that we have limited options to treat some
infections and that’s very scary because you bring us up to the point
where we didn’t happen to biotics you think about it before the second war we
didn’t have anantibiotic and people would die from infections that you see
immediately and there was nothing to do and when the antibiotic came on probably
one of the biggest inventions basically things change dramatically so now we are
moving in a way because of the resistance to other antibiotics in a way that
probably we are having problems to treat some infections again and that’s a huge
issue on top of that the truth is that we try to use antibiotics the less that
we can and antibiotics are not a big
business anymore so the pharmaceutical companies are not very
interested in creating new antibiotics because it doesn’t
produce a lot of money so we have a huge problem the bacterias are becoming
resistant and a huge problem is that we are not getting new antibiotics.
