CDC has declared the complex problem of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) a serious threat today, which will result in potential catastrophic consequences with continued inaction. In like respect, the World Health Organization (WHO) has stated that, “A post-antibiotic era—in which common infections and minor injuries can kill—far from being an apocalyptic fantasy, is instead a very real possibility for the 21st century,” threatening the achievements of modern medicine.
Aggressive action is needed now to prevent both the spread of existing resistance and development of new resistance mechanisms. To combat AMR, the CDC has identified 4 core actions, all of which can be addressed through rapid molecular diagnostics.
