The next session of Public Health Grand Rounds, entitled “The Growing Threat of Multidrug-Resistant Gonorrhea,” will be held on Tuesday, May 15 at 1 p.m. (EDT).
This session of Grand Rounds will explore the development of antibiotic resistance in Neisseria gonorrhoeae as a growing public health concern because the United States gonorrhea control strategy relies on effective antibiotic therapy. Since antibiotics were first used for treatment of gonorrhea, the organism has progressively developed resistance to the drugs prescribed to treat it.
Given the ability of the gonorrhea bacterium to develop antibiotic resistance, it is critical to continuously monitor gonococcal antibiotic resistance and encourage research and development of new treatment regimens for gonorrhea.
