Association Between Climate Change And Antimicrobial Resistance Identified

New study shown at ECCMID (European Congress of Clinical Microbiology & Infectious Diseases) in Amsterdam this year demonstrates a new association relation between climate change and antibiotic resistance. The research was performed in the UMG (University Medical Center Göttingen) the Institute of Infection Control and Infectious Diseases, Germany, in association with the MHH (Hannover Medical School), Germany. Professor Simone Scheithauer is the lead author from UMG.

AMR (antimicrobial resistance) is a danger all over the Europe with burdens majorly peaking all over the Mediterranean Basin. Lately, the relation of AMR with climate attained extreme limelight, since conflict elevated with the USA’s rising local temperatures.

This new study examined whether the descriptive strength of climate factors holds true in an area with varied societies & healthcare systems and whether a dimension for climate change can be verified, employing Europe as a study area.

The scientists performed a 30-nation observational research all over the Europe. The 6-year occurrence of CRKP (Klebsiella pneumoniae), CRPA (carbapenem resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa), MRSA (Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus), and MREC (multiresistant Escherichia coli) was decided on the basis of data posted by the ECDC (European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control).

On a related note, most of the individuals will recall last summer—not only in Switzerland, but also in areas all over the rest of Europe, as well as in Asia and North America. Various places all over the globe underwent heat so harsh that power generation had to be shortened, individuals died of heatstroke, forests went up in flames, and roads & rails started to melt.

ETH scientists have claimed that anthropogenic climate change is the only clarification of why heat impacted so many regions over various months. These are the results of the latest research that Martha Vogel (ETH climate researcher) showed in Vienna at the European Geosciences Union press conference.
