Feb 08, 2022 Antibiotic resistance: How some bacteria acquire resistance genes from their environment?

Antibiotic resistance has made certain infections, sometimes common, such as urinary and respiratory infections, impossible to treat, representing a major setback in the medical care of human and animal patients. This resistance has thus become a major health issue, which has led the WHO (World Health Organization) to establish a list of bacteria in which antibiotic resistance is particularly worrying.In a new study published in the journal mBio, we focused on one of these bacteria that are particularly resistant to antibiotics, Acinetobacter baumannii. The latter is responsible for many opportunistic and nosocomial infections. We have determined the mechanisms that allow this bacterium to rapidly acquire resistance genes from neighboring bacteria.
