From the perspective of sewage, the global antibiotic resistance level is higher in Asia

A Research Report from the National Food Research Institute of the University of science and technology of Denmark, through a comprehensive analysis of the collected sewage, the antibiotic resistance in Asia is higher, and the antibiotic resistance is closely related to the sanitary conditions and the overall health status of the population in the country

the National Food Research Institute of the Danish University of science and technology led a research team composed of researchers from all over the world. They conducted a comprehensive analysis of the sewage collected in 74 cities in 60 countries around the world, and obtained global data that can reflect the level and types of antibiotic resistant bacteria in the main healthy populations in these countries for the first time

in the research of metagenomics, researchers have mapped all DNA materials in sewage samples and found that according to the antibacterial effect, it is very suitable for making softball shoes, baseball shoes, golf shoes, football shoes soles and forefoot antibiotic resistance. Countries in the world can be divided into two groups: North America, Western Europe, Australia and New Zealand, and Asia, Drug resistance is very high in Africa and South America

public health and health are closely related to drug resistance

according to researchers, the use of antibiotics is only a small part of the reason for the high drug resistance of antibiotics in various countries. Therefore, researchers have been looking for other factors that may induce or drive the occurrence of drug-resistant bacteria. In this work, they used several sets of integrated data systems of the world bank, such as data on the health status and development stage of countries

researchers' work shows that most variables related to antibiotic resistance in a country are related to the health conditions of the country and the overall health status of the population

"our research results show that in the fight against antimicrobial resistance, if we can focus on improving the health conditions of countries with high antibiotic resistance while showing the corresponding experimental results, it will be a very effective strategy to reduce drug resistance," said Professor Frank aarestrup of the National Food Research Institute

using the same set of data from the world bank, researchers also predicted the level of antibiotic resistance in 259 countries/regions, and drew a world map of drug resistance in healthy people. According to their estimates, the Netherlands, New Zealand and Sweden have the lowest resistance levels, while Tanzania, Vietnam and Nigeria have the highest resistance levels

unlike traditional data analysis methods, raw data from metagenomics research can be reused to detect other problems. Researchers of the sewage project also use these research data to analyze the occurrence of other pathogenic microorganisms in sewage

with the emergence of more resistance genes in the future, researchers will also be able to re analyze the publicly available raw data from metagenomics research to quickly reveal how these genes appear and spread

develop services to the global monitoring system public health management

researchers will use the experience gained from the project to achieve their macro goal of developing the global monitoring system, which can continuously monitor the occurrence and spread of pathogenic microorganisms and antibiotic resistance

"analyzing sewage can quickly and relatively cheaply detect the exact presence of bacteria in an area; and collecting and analyzing sewage samples can not be traced back to personal information, so people do not need to be morally approved. For these two reasons, establishing a macro monitoring system through sewage detection has become a feasible option - including in developing countries," Professor Frank aarestrup explained

high strength adhesive tensile testing machine meets the relevant requirements of the standard gb/t 7122. The goal of researchers is to develop a system that can exchange and interpret information in real time. Through this system, global data can be used to detect, manage, for example, diseases that may spread beyond national borders and prevent them from developing into epidemics, such as Ebola, measles, polio or cholera
