Outcomes of Solving Antibiotic Resistance

May 17, 2016

The outcomes of the STOA working breakfast Solving Antibiotic Resistance are now available online!

During this event co-organised by the European Parliament´s STOA, EuChemS, and EFMC and chaired by MEP Paul Rübig on the 28 April 2016, researchers and several Members of the European Parliament analysed the global challenge of antimicrobial resistance and weighted the pros and cons of possible solutions.

Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) is the ability of microorganisms to withstand attack by antimicrobial drugs such as antibiotics, antifungal or antivirals, and is a serious issue that threatens to render many of the treatments we use today ineffective in the future – from tuberculosis to HIV, from pneumonia to other common infections.

The outcomes will also soon be available at STOA´s website.
