Senior Captain's Charity 2020: Antibiotic Research UK
Antibiotic Research UK is a charity researching new ways to beat Antibiotic-Resistant infections which is crucial in order to prevent hundreds of thousands of deaths in the coming years.
I don’t think everyone is aware that even today ONE person dies every 45 minutes in the UK from an antibiotic-resistant infection.
Antibiotic Resistance renders common medical procedures more dangerous by the day. Simple operations, joint replacements operations, dental work, caesarean sections, cancer treatments, care for chronic illnesses, veterinary work – you name it – it will be compromised,
With the current market model of volume driven sales making the return of investment too low for pharmaceutical companies to invest in producing antibiotics, the belief is the charity sector needs to play a more active role in fighting this problem.
If you have a relative or friend who relies on antibiotics to give them a life it is imperative to find new drugs to take the fear away of them thinking is the next infection going to be the last.
