Antimicrobial Resistance & Stewardship

  • Diagnostics, a pillar of WHO research priorities for battling antimicrobial resistance

    WHO has published, for the first time, a list of 40 priority research topics aimed at speeding up the implementation of concrete measures on a global scale. A roadmap that gives great importance to diagnostics.

  • The judicious use of antibiotics would improve lifespan of patients with Cystic Fibrosis

  • Mitigating Global Disparities in the Fight Against Antimicrobial Resistance

    Antibiotics have been used to save countless lives for decades. What happens when these drugs we depend on are no longer effective? Imagine a scenario where routine surgeries and minor infections can frequently become life-threatening, and the cost of treatment increases substantially.

  • The Global Point Prevalence Survey: making the Difference in the Fight Against Antimicrobial Resistance

    The Global Point Prevalence Survey (Global-PPS) is a free, online tool, developed by the University of Antwerp in Belgium, to measure and monitor antimicrobial prescribing and resistance in hospitals worldwide. Since its creation and launched in 2015, more than 90 countries have taken part in the initiative, involving 1,300 hospitals and 500,000 patients.

  • 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.
