Antibiotic-resistant microbes infect more than 2 million Americans and kill over 100,000 each year. They spread rapidly, even in such seemingly harmless places as high school locker rooms, where they infect young athletes. Throughout the world, many more people are dying from these infections. Astoundingly, as antibiotic resistant infections are skyrocketing in incidence—creating a critical need for new antibiotics—R&D of new antibiotics has ground to a screeching halt!
Rising Plague tells the story of this grave public health crisis. True and very moving patient stories are shared to emphasize the terrible frustration we experience while attempting to treat untreatable infections, not to mention the heart-break and tragedy that many of these patients’ families have to endure. The book explains the true causes of antibiotic resistance and of the virtual collapse of antibiotic research and development. This crucial and timely book is lucidly written in terms that everyone can understand. It issues a call to action, explaining how, through a strong and concerted effort, we can all help prevent this nightmare scenario from happening.
