科学家警告说我们即将进入一个后抗生素时代。研究人员在中国的病人和牲畜身上发现了一种能对抗最有效的抗生素"粘菌素 (colistin)"的超级细菌。以下是 James Gallagher 的报道。

Bacteria becoming completely resistant to antibiotics could plunge medicine back into the dark ages. It would affect not only infections but also surgery and cancer treatment.

Resistance to colistin has emerged in isolated cases before, but this time it is in a form that can spread easily between bacteria. It has already been found in multiple species of bacteria and in other Asian countries.

The bacteria which can't be treated with colistin can be destroyed by using other antibiotics for now, but the concern is that it will share its resistance with other bugs to create untreatable infections.

Resistance is thought to have emerged after the drug was used to treat farm animals.

Chinese ministers are meeting with the research team this weekend to discuss whether colistin should be banned in agriculture.
