#1 New Untreatable Strain of Gonorrhoea Discovered

Postby fountainhall » Fri Jul 07, 2017 9:31 am

It may only be three cases, but the WHO is calling this a "very serious situation". The three are cases of gonorrhoea which have proved to be totally untreatable. The WHO adds it is only a matter of time before last-resort gonorrhoea antibiotics will be of no use.

Manica Balasegaram, director of the Global Antibiotic Research and Development Partnership, said the situation was “grim” and there was a pressing need for new medicines.

The pipeline, however, is very thin, with only three potential new gonorrhoea drugs in development and no guarantee any will prove effective in final-stage trials, he said.
