In this episode of the Perspective Prog. Based on ‘Drug-Resistant Microbes’. The Indian Council of Medical Research has found in its research that disease-causing microbes are increasingly becoming resistant to antibiotics due to the rampant use of drugs. This can prove to be very dangerous in the future as diseases caused by drug-resistant microbes will become very difficult for doctors to treat. The ICMR study found that large proportions of patients are now resistant to carbapenem — a powerful antibiotic to treat pneumonia and septicemia as they have developed what is called antimicrobial resistance in medical parlance. The data collected from the network has enabled compilation of drug resistance data on six pathogenic groups on antimicrobial resistance from the country. And to understand the impact of Sustained rise in antimicrobial resistance.
