Antimicrobial Resistance
This briefing note presents key estimates of the health and economic impact of AMR and effective strategies to address this major public health threat. “If no effective action is put in place, AMR to second-line antibiotics will be 72% higher in 2030 compared to 2005 in the EU/EEA. In the same period, AMR to last-line treatments will more than double.” (Source: Current Awareness Service for Health (CASH))

The challenge of antimicrobial resistance: What economics can contribute
As antibiotic consumption grows, bacteria are becoming increasingly resistant to treatment. Antibiotic resistance undermines much of modern health care, which relies on access to effective antibiotics to prevent and treat infections associated with routine medical procedures. The resulting challenges have much in common with those posed by climate change, which economists have responded to with research that has informed and shaped public policy. Drawing on economic concepts such as externalities and the principal–agent relationship, we suggest how economics can help to solve the challenges arising from increasing re...

Our study identified an increased risk of sepsis within 90 days of discharge among patients with exposure to high-risk antibiotics or increased quantities of antibiotics during hospitalization. Given that a significant proportion of inpatient antimicrobial use may be unnecessary, this study builds on previous evidence suggesting that increased stewardship efforts in hospitals may not only prevent antimicrobial resistance, Clostridium difficile infection, and other adverse effe...

Opposing reactions in coenzyme A metabolism sensitize Mycobacterium tuberculosis to enzyme inhibition
Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) is the leading infectious cause of death in humans. Synthesis of lipids critical for Mtb’s cell wall and virulence depends on phosphopantetheinyl transferase (PptT), an enzyme that transfers 4'-phosphopantetheine (Ppt) from coenzyme A (CoA) to diverse acyl carrier proteins. We identified a compound that kills Mtb by binding and partially inhibiting PptT. Killing of Mtb by the compound is potentiated by another enzyme encoded in the same operon, Ppt hydrolase (PptH), that undoes the PptT reaction. Thus, loss-of-function mutants of PptH displayed antimicrobial resistance. Our PptT-inhib...
