Most antibiotic resistance cases have been associated with health care settings such as hospitals and nursing homes. Increasingly, however, there are cases of antibiotic-resistance – methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infections or drug-resistant tuberculosis, for example – outside health care settings. These cases are hard to treat with existing antibiotics.
At least 2 million people in the U.S. contract an antibiotic-resistance bacterium annually and 23,000 die as a result. The threat has become so dire that in 2013, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), announced for some patients, the medical community had reached a “post-antibiotic” era.
