Antibiotic resistance in Neisseria gonorrhoeae


Clinical Infectious Diseases 41 Suppl 4: S263-S268
Antibiotic resistance in Neisseria gonorrhoeae
The incidence of gonorrhea is increasing in developed countries and remains high elsewhere. This untenable disease burden, the complication rate in women and newborns, and the amplification of human immunodeficiency virus transmission that accompanies gonorrhea makes control of gonococcal disease a priority. However, antibiotic resistance in Neisseria gonorrhoeae has severely compromised the successful treatment of gonorrhea.
