In recent years, dozens of drug-resistant bacteria resistant to antibiotics have been discovered. The birth of these super-bugs is being accelerated by the overuse of antibiotics, but the development of new antibiotics is not in time. The World Health Organization (WHO) released 12 kinds of super-bug lists classified according to the degree of risk of "serious", "high", "medium" in search of innovation for improvement of public health and antibiotic development for the use of antibiotics Did.

WHO and the team of international medical experts led by Eberhard Curl University in Germany investigated the level of tolerance, mortality, the prevalence in the community, the burden on the health system, etc., and compared 12 types of superbugs with 3 types It divided into urgency and listed. The dangerous super bug list by WHO is as follows.

◆ Urgency 1: Critical
·Carbapenem antibioticsResistant Acinetobacter baumannii

·Carbapenem antibiotic resistanceP. aeruginosa

·Carbapenem antibiotics,Third generation cephalosporinResistanceIntestinal bacteria(CRE)

◆ Urgency 2: High
·Vancomycin-resistant enterococci(VRE)

·Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus(MRSA)

·ClarithromycinResistanceHelicobacter pylori

·Fluoroquinolone(New quinolone) toleranceCampylobacter

·Fluoroquinolone resistant Salmonella

·Multidrug resistanceGonococcus(Third generation cephalosporin, fluoroquinolone resistant)

◆ Urgency 3: Medium
·Penicillin insensitiveStreptococcus pneumoniae

·Ampicillin resistanceH. influenzae(BLNAR)

·Fluoroquinolone resistanceShigella

According to VoxIn the United States 2 million people annually develop disease caused by drug-resistant bacteria, 23,000 people are dead. Antibiotic new drug development requires huge investment and is accompanied by great risk, so no antibiotic new drug has been developed in the past 10 years, but drug resistant bacteria already resistant to all human antibiotics are also available I have found some. The WHO is not intended to frighten people, but to promote the development of new drugs for antibiotics.

How to see how these bacteria acquire drug resistance can be understood by reading the following article.
