During my NYSC, I met a girl who came with packs of antibiotics, and anytime you made to go to the toilet, she’d bring it out and say,
“Babe, collect. I don’t know how you people use public toilet without antibiotics o. Prevention is better than cure”

Me: 🙆🏽‍♀️
#AntibioticSteward👇🏽
A lot of patients out there believe that when they have a common cold/flu or any minor infection, there must be an antibiotic within their prescription.

Some call you inexperienced if you say no.
Newsflash; Antibiotics don’t fix everything!

Antibiotics are only prescribed by Drs when laboratory tests have been done and particular organisms have been cultured from your samples.

You don’t go about treating what you don’t know.
1) Your illness can get worse if you’re treating amiss
2) Drugs have side effects

No no no no no. This article on dirty manure biogas doesn't give the reader an accurate sense of the DANGERS here, and contributes to the false narrative that this is safe. It's not. @nprDanCharles I hope this changes your mind. 1/ n.pr/37nd7U1
First, Blakely Hildebrand and Devon Hall are powerful advocates against this problem. I'm sure they spoke volumes about it, but very little made it into the article. I want to clear the (manure biogas discharge laden) air. /2
To start off, @foodandwater has done a lot of great education work around this issue. I'd suggest a primer by reading this foodandwaterwatch.org/insight/biogas… /3

It's #WorldAntibioticAwarenessWeek 💊

Misusing and overusing #antibiotics puts us ALL at risk.

You can play a crucial role in reducing #antibioticresistance: only use antibiotics when they were prescribed by a qualified health professional!
@WHOThailand @WHOSriLanka @WHOIndonesia @WHO @WHOTimorLeste @MoHmv @MoHFW_INDIA @UNinIndia @UN_Nepal @MoHFW_GUJARAT The future of #antibiotics depends on all of us.

Drug-resistance is circulating among humans, animals and the environment. #Antibiotic resistance occurs naturally, but misuse of antibiotics in humans and animals is accelerating the process.

The rise of #AntibioticResistance is threatening our ability to treat common infectious diseases, resulting in prolonged illness, disability & death bit.ly/33WZI2x

@WHO_Europe @WHOSEARO @pahowho @WHOEMRO @WHOWPRO @WHOAFRO @DrTedros @UN_News_Centre Overuse and misuse of antibiotics are the leading causes of antimicrobial resistance. Without effective #antibiotics💊 and other antimicrobials, we will lose our ability to treat common infections like pneumonia.

Today is #HandHygiene Day!
🤲🏻🤲🏿🤲🏼🤲🏾🤲🏽

Hand hygiene is a simple act that can grow into big changes: improving quality of care and leading to #HealthForAll
#HandHygiene and #InfectionPrevention and control matters when it comes to quality health care and saving lives bit.ly/2VYjzea
#InfectionPrevention and control prevents both the spread of #AntibioticResistant organisms and the occurrence of infection and thus, the need for antibiotic use bit.ly/2VYjzea

It’s so important to keep vaccinating our children: if we don’t, diseases that have become uncommon in many countries will return.

(1/n) Excited that final version of work led by @D4N__ studying evolutionary repeatability and collateral sensitivity is out. #mathevo #clecliniccancer nature.com/articles/s4146… @CCLRI @NatureComms @CWRUSOM
(2/n) This collab between @CompSciOxford @CCLRI @CWRUSOM & @MoffittPSOC is an extension of @D4N__ ‘s initial theory paper that proposed ‘steering evolution’ as a method of extending the use of existing drugs to control infection. #AntibioticResistance journals.plos.org/ploscompbiol/a…
(3/n) using the fitness landscape metaphor, we reasoned that instances of collateral sensitivity need not be repeatable, as evolutionary branch points could lead to multiple peaks - which could have different sensitivity profiles.

Antibiotic testing. Let's go.

Tentatively calling this #tweetorial "Antibiotic testing: why and how and huh?"

Important caveat: this is a HUGE topic. I’m mostly going to focus on 1) basic rationale and 2) laboratory methods. And 3) try not to say anything wrong/misleading!
Question #1: Why would a person want to know if bacteria A is resistant to antibiotic B?
And the answer is ...

All are legit answers! But it's very situation dependent and you'd have different reasons for each. Let’s go through them.

FACT: Immunization is one of the most successful and cost-effective means to help children grow into healthy adults. #VaccinesWork!
