An antibiotic-resistance strategy to reduce and destroy the development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria

According to official estimates, 7,500 to 15,000 people in Germany die each year from hospital infections. These infections are caused by antibiotic-resistant germs. According to scientists from Queen Mary University in London and their publications in the European Respiratory Journal, around 500,000 people are infected with drug-resistant tuberculosis each year, resulting in 150,000 deaths in this way. How can the infectious diseases be treated in case of aggravation of the problem of the growth of resistant bacteria?

An antibiotic resistance strategy includes all measures to reduce the development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Antibiotic resistance is a serious and rapidly developing global problem. If left unchecked, life-threatening infections may no longer be successfully treated.

Therefore, one of the most important problems in the field of human and veterinary medicine is the increase of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. The reasons for this are that antibiotics are too often used unnecessarily, not only in human but also in veterinary medicine. The indiscriminate use of antibiotics, especially in developing countries, is based on several causes, such as lack of knowledge about new biotechnologies that save money, effort and time, the use of antibiotics as a growth driver, the complete lack of innovative rapid diagnostic solutions in the world target countries. The consequences: longer, heavier and more aggressive infections. This not only causes economic loss for both farmers and doctors, but also poses a great risk to human health as a whole.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has warned that the indiscriminate use of antibiotics in veterinary medicine poses a major risk to human health. Those who consume meat saturated with antibiotics do not respond to these antibiotics, for example, if they have respiratory or lung diseases.

The authorities concerned must be called upon to develop a new system to ensure that there is still insufficient control to curb abuses. In addition, the indiscriminate use of medicines and antibiotics must be prevented to ensure that meat is safe for the consumer.

To curb the growing trend of antibiotic resistance, we are working with our global partners to make a significant contribution and provide high-quality diagnostic solutions in each of the target countries, saving money, time and effort for the human and veterinarian and the farmer, and especially the Significantly improve animal health and quality of life for patients

  • Research and development of innovative diagnostic solutions
  • The use of probiotics in the fight against the use of antibiotics
  • The replacement of medicines with by-products
  • Understanding and interrupting infection chains

Working with us contributes to the global improvement of the healthcare system. The following dangerous causes are eliminated:

  • Inhibition of indiscriminate and unnecessary use of antibiotics (as a contribution to prevention)
  • Inhibition of the spread of antibiotic-resistant bacteria
  • Securing antibiotic-free animal products
  • Contribute to the destruction of resistant strains of bacteria
  • Positive influence on animal health
