High Risk Groups

People at Especially High Risk

As resistance grows, the antibiotics used to treat infections do not work as well or at all.  The loss of effective antibiotic treatments will not only cripple the ability to fight routine infectious disease but will also undermine treatment of infectious complications in patients with other disease.  Many of the advances in medical treatment – joint replacements, organ transplants, cancer therapy, and treatment of chronic diseases such as diabetes, asthma, rheumatoid arthritis – are dependent on the ability to fight infections with antibiotics.  If that ability is lost, the ability to safely offer people many life-saving and life-improving modern medical advantages will be lost with it.  For example:
