Antimicrobial Resistance & Stewardship
Burn Patients Often Have Higher Rates of Multidrug-Resistant Infections—But There are Ways to Help
Patients who are admitted to the hospital with large burn injuries are at especially high risk for developing hospital-associated infections (HAIs), and the longer a patient stays in the hospital, the more likely they are to acquire a resistant infection.
Transferable patent extensions
A failure of the antibiotics market is hampering vital innovation in this field. Researchers from the Toulouse School of Economics (TSE) propose a new mechanism for compensating innovation, taking the form of a voucher that would be transferable.
Fleming Fund Supports Global AMR Surveillance Network
Since 2019, bioMérieux has partnered with the Fleming Fund to provide high medical value diagnostic solutions, innovative data analytics tools and antimicrobial susceptibility testing in 15 countries located in the Africa and Asia Pacific regions.
We can’t rely on development of new drugs alone to combat antimicrobial resistance
Diagnostics and advanced data analytics can help preserve existing treatments for patients.
Making Antimicrobial Stewardship Simpler: Reporting Tools Could Save Time for Busy Hospital Staff
Further investment in and use of technologies such as reporting software can mean that antimicrobial stewardship staff no longer spend weeks working from spreadsheets and can deliver the all-important antibiograms sooner.
