An Interactive Tool to See Antibacterial Resistance Over Time

Do you need to know the percentage of Salmonella Typhi resistant to nalidixic acid in California in 2001? A resource now exists that can give you that answer.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has released a tool called National Antimicrobial Resistance Monitoring System (NARMS) Now: Human Data, and it allows users to access antimicrobial resistance data based on year and geographical region. The interactive site tracks resistance for four bacteria that cause foodborne illness: Salmonella, Shigella, Campylobacter, and E. coli O157.
