Oxford University is opening a new research institute dedicated to tackling resistance to antibiotics. The university says this is one of the the biggest rising threats to global health, already causing 1.5 million deaths per year worldwide. Routine operations and “taken-for-granted treatments” would become much riskier without effective antibiotics, said the university.
“The growing menace of bacterial resistance to antibiotics is one of the most under-reported issues of our time,” says David Sweetnam, a surgeon advising the new institute.  Source : BBC
