Last quote about Antimicrobial resistance

Paul Cosford
Antibiotic resistance is not a distant threat, but is in fact one of the most dangerous global crises facing the modern world today. Taking antibiotics when you don't need them puts you and your family at risk of developing infections which in turn cannot be easily treated with antibiotics. Without urgent action from all of us, common infections, minor injuries and routine operations will become much riskier.feedback

Marie-Paule Kieny - World Health Organization

This is truly urgent. These bacteria are responsible for severe infections and high mortality rates mostly in hospitalized patients, transplant recipients, those receiving chemotherapy or patients in intensive care units. Antibiotic resistance is growing, and we are fast running out of treatment options. If we leave it to market forces alone, the new antibiotics we most urgently need are not going to be developed in time.feedback

Marta Hugas - European Food Safety Authority

In countries where actions have been taken to reduce, replace and re-think the use of antimicrobials in animals show lower levels of antimicrobial resistance and decreasing trends.feedback

Vytenis Andriukaitis

Antimicrobial resistance is an alarming threat putting human and animal health in danger. We have put substantial efforts to stop its rise, but this is not enough. We must be quicker, stronger and act on several fronts.feedback

Nicholas White

We are losing a dangerous race to eliminate artemisinin resistant...malaria before widespread resistance to the partner antimalarials makes that impossible. The consequences of resistance spreading further into India and Africa could be grave if drug resistance is not tackled from a global public health emergency perspective.feedback

Dimitrios Tzalis

By bridging the gap between the early academic research and the pharmaceutical industry, we have managed to bring potential drug candidates in the fields of neurodegenerative diseases, type 2 diabetes, cancer, and antimicrobial resistance, much closer to the patient.feedback

Jan Skriwanek

IMI is a partnership between the European Union and the European Pharmaceutical Industry. IMI's objective is to accelerate the development of new drugs, especially in areas where there is a high medical need, such as dementia and antibiotic resistance.feedback

Mario Raviglione - World Health Organization

The dismal progress in the TB response is a tragedy for the millions of people suffering from this disease. To save more lives now, we must get newly recommended rapid tests, drugs and regimens to those who need them. Current actions and investments fall far short of what is needed. The world is finally waking up to the threat of antimicrobial resistance -- now is the time to accelerate the MDR-TB response.feedback

Beth Bell

Antibiotic resistance and the rise of superbugs really [do] put modern medicine at risk. If you think about some of the main advances in medicine over the last number of decades, for example, cancer chemotherapy, organ transplantation, joint replacements, the success of all these innovations is really based on our ability to treat infections.feedback

Tim Evans - World Bank Group

We cannot afford to lose the gains in the last century brought about by the antibiotic era. By any measure, the cost of inaction on antimicrobial resistance is too great, it needs to be addressed urgently and resolutely.feedback

Austin Wilson

Yum Brands' silence in the face of this looming antibiotic resistance crisis is bad for business.feedback

Serge Rombi

An important British study shows that, by 2050, antibiotic resistance could become even more deadly than cancer – with more than 10 million victims a year. So we're looking to understand how it can be transmitted from an animal to humans, but above all how can farmers prevent this happening?feedback

Patrick McGann

So the truck has been loaded with a total of eight antibiotic resistance genes. It's quite scary.feedback

Tom Frieden - Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

We know now that the more we look, the more we are going to find. The more we look at drug resistance, the more concerned we become.feedback

Jim O'Neill - Bruegel

Even at the current rates, it is fair to assume that over 1 million people will have died from AMR [antimicrobial resistance] since I started this review in the summer of 2014.feedback

Margaret Chan - World Health Organization

The rise of antibiotic resistance is a global crisis. It's one of the greatest threats to health today.feedback
