LONDON (Worthy News)-- Britain called for global action in development of a new generation of antibiotics to fight against the rising threat of drug-resistant superbugs which threaten to push medicine back into the "dark ages," Reuters reported.
Prime Minister David Cameron called on Wednesday for global action to tackle the threat of drug-resistant superbugs and said Britain planned to take a leading role in finding ways to spur the development of new antibiotics.
A world without effective antibiotics would push medicine back into the "dark ages", he said, with routine surgery, treatments for cancer and organ transplants potentially becoming impossible. -- Source
