Diarrhoea with antibiotics can promote the pass on of drug-resistant super-bacteria.

Antibiotic use by travellers may promote spread of drug-resistant ‘super-bacteria’ Dealing with travellers' diarrhoea with antibiotics can promote the pass on of drug-resistant super-bacteria . Each full year, more than 300 million tourists visit with low standards of hygiene areas. A recently available Finnish study shows that about one-fifth of the travellers return home with an undesired companion, a drug-resistant intestinal bacterium. The chance of being contaminated with a drug-resistant intestinal bacterium raises significantly if the traveller evolves diarrhoea and particularly if he or she uses antibiotics to treat it, says Docent Anu Kantele of Helsinki University Central Hospital, an infectious disease expert who led the scholarly research published in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases.PRESS RELEASE PRINCETON, N.J. & White colored PLAINS, N.Y.—-Bristol-Myers Squibb Business today announced a charitable donation to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Culture .
