A recent paper in the Journal of the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society discusses the rising rates of antibacterial resistance in pediatric patients. It’s an alarming (but not surprising) paper that serves as yet another call to action. Modern medicine is in jeopardy; my hope is that it’s not to late to stop the oncoming catastrophe.
As always, Maryn McKenna over at Superbug has an excellent write-up.
If you’d like to read the paper, it’s here.
