New perspectives of gonorrhea

Highlights from NCDV: Gonorrhoea is an old disease on the rise and plays a role in the development of antibiotic resistance.

In this MEDtalk Usha Hartgill, MD, Olafiaklinikken, will share some of her perspectives and findings on this sexually transmitted bacterial infection, of which we see a significant increase in Europe, especially in the target group of men having sex with men. The continued evolution of antibiotic-resistant strains of the gonococcus is of pressing global concern, with reported cases of ceftriaxone resistant strains and multi-drug resistant. Enhanced surveillance of antimicrobial resistance, treatment failures and antimicrobial use (stewardship) is crucial.
