care. Adequate oversight and regulation must be implemented, and coverage of clinically useful PM should be considered by insurers.

"Personalized medicine is an extension of traditional approaches in health care, further allowing physicians to refine diagnosis, treatment and prevention," said AMA Board Member Peter W. Carmel, M.D. "The AMA will inform physicians about emerging personalized medicine issues and develop educational resources and point-of-care tools to assist physicians in implementing personalized medicine."

Antibiotic Resistance and the Development of New Treatments

Over time antibiotics lose the ability to treat diseases because bacteria eventually becomes resistant to them. Antibiotics must be used only when necessary so that we can prolong their effectiveness. These challenges are compounded by a lack of new antibiotics under development by pharmaceutical companies. Today the AMA passed policy to increase efforts to educate the public about antibiotic resistance and raise awareness of the lack of new antibiotics in the drug development pipeline. The AMA will also endorse the "10 x '20" initiative which aims to create 10 new antibiotics by 2020.

"Antibiotics have saved millions of lives and eased patients suffering, but antibiotic resistance is a serious patient safety and public health threat," said AMA Board Member Peter W. Carmel, M.D. "Experts from medical, scientific, policy, and regulatory communities need to work together to increase awareness of antibiotic resistance and find ways to create new antibiotics."
