BREAKING: CDC Issues Advisory on Emerging Superbug - CRE: 40 to 50% Mortality Rate.

It appears the CDC, FDA, DHHS, VA etc and the rest of the 'alleged' public funded, public supported entities have been playing GYA for themselves.. in Stock Markets supporting everyone and everything but that for which TAX DOLLARS was appropriated since G.H.W. BUSH sold out our INFRA-STRUCTURE IN EX. ORD. 12803. Don't believe it?! Read it! George Bush: "Executive Order 12803 - Infrastructure Privatization," April 30, 1992.

Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) are a serious threat to public health.
Infections with CRE are difficult to treat and have been associated with mortality rates as high as 40-50%.

he Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is alerting clinicians of an emerging untreatable multidrug-resistant organism in the United States.

There are many forms of Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE), but of the 37 forms reported in the U.S., 15 have been reported in less than a year.

The CDC said the increase in CRE means health care providers need to "act aggressively to prevent the emergence and spread of these unusual CRE organisms."

Enterobacteriaceae lives in water, soil and the human gut. These "surperbugs" have developed high levels of resistance to antibiotics - even carbapanems.

Individuals who usually develop CRE infections are those who are taking antibiotics and getting significant medical treatment for other conditions.

2012 CRE Toolkit - Guidance for Control of Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE)

Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) are a serious threat to public health.

Infections with CRE are difficult to treat and have been associated with mortality rates as high as 40-50%.

Due to the movement of patients throughout the healthcare system, if CRE are a problem in one facility, then typically they are a problem in other facilities in the region as well.

What in the hell does this have to do with drug resistant bacteria?

GM Antibiotic Resistance in China's Rivers 01.Mar.2013 20:28

repost in support (or, really, damnation)

A new study conducted in China finds 6 out of 6 major rivers tested positive for ampicillin antibiotic resistant bacteria [1]. Sequencing of the gene responsible, the blá gene, shows it is a synthetic version derived from a lab and different from the wild type. This suggests to the researchers that synthetic plasmid vectors from genetic engineering applications may be the source of the ampicillin resistance, which is affecting the human population. The blá gene confers resistance to a wide range of therapeutic antibiotics and the widespread environment pollution with blá resistant bacteria is a major public health concern.
