Driving reinvestment in R&D for antibiotics and advocating their responsible use

UK Review on Antimicrobial Resistance calls for wider use of vaccines & alternative approaches to drug-resistant infections

The UK Review on Antimicrobial Resistance, chaired by Jim O’Neill, released its latest report on February 11 2016, titled “Vaccines and alternative approaches: reducing our dependence on antimicrobials“.

This latest in a series of reports by the Review on Antimicrobial Resistance sets out that there are too few vaccines and alternative approaches to antibiotics available for doctors to use to tackle many of our most urgent drug resistance threats, and that there is a need for further investment in the development of these products. The report provides an overview of the markets and the pipelines for vaccines and other alternative approaches to tackling drug-resistant infections, by reducing the need for, and the use of antimicrobials.
