To prevent indiscriminate sale of topical preparations containing steroids and antibiotics without prescription, the Health Ministry has banned over-the-counter sale of around 14 such creams.

Over the 16-year period studied, consumption of antibiotics more than doubled in India

Antibiotic prescriptions have shot up by 65 percent overall and by 39 percent per person in 15 years, new research reveals.

Antibiotic use more than doubled in India between 2000 and 2015, fuelling antibiotic resistance that is making common infections such as E.coli, strep throat, pneumonia and tuberculosis more difficult to treat, according to this new study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS)

E. coli in the wild birds became immune to some drugs within a few months

Scientists have developed a new "rapid test" that produces a cheaper and faster diagnosis on infectious diseases in just three hours thus preventing antibiotic resistances from spreading.

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is becoming a serious global problem. It is estimated that it might lead to 10 million deaths per year and loss of outputs worth US $100 trillion by 2050. Antibiotic misuse in food-animal production is one of the key causes of AMR.

HYDERABAD: A novel species of a bacterium that produces antibiotic has been discovered by a professor in the University of Hyderabad (UoH) and his researchers, the university said on Thursday.
