Antibiotic Resistance 2013: A Global Market Study
Date:10/24/2013

tic resistance. In 2009, the World Health Organisation reported that in Europe 25,000 people die every year from drug-resistant infections. In the same year there were 440,000 new cases of MDR tuberculosis, in 69 countries.

Although the use of antibiotics has soared in recent decades, the approval of new antibiotics in the US fell by 60% from 30 during the decade 1983 to 1992, to just 12 over the period 1998 to 2009. Although recent years have seen a significant growth in the numbers and novelty of new pipeline antibiotics, it is evident that the health threats posed by antibiotic resistance need to be tackled urgently, and in many different ways.

The last five years have seen important changes in practices, innovation and attitudes in response to these growing threats. These are driving innovation in drug discovery and diagnostics, but more importantly, in clinical practices and the ways in which antibiotics are being used. There is also increasing local and international surveillance to monitor the emergence and spread of antibiotic resistant strains, and local integrated practices, antimicrobial stewardship programs and more effective diagnostic methods are being pushed forward, in an effort to ensure the most appropriate and effective use of antibiotics. These developments offer new opportunities for developers in this field, both in drug discovery and in diagnostics.

Antibiotic resistance: global strategies to calm a perfect storm

One way to guarantee the rise of antibiotic resistance is to treat bacterial infections with the same antibiotics over and over again. This accelerates the emergence of resistant phenotypes, and this is exactly what is happening. Findings of a recent global study of antibiotic resistance by Biopharm Reports show that just ten antibiotic classes are being used to treat 86% of all infections, while only five classes are being used to treat 60% of infections. These practices have huge implications for the
