Microbiology Today: Antimicrobial-resistant gonorrhoea

The control of bacterial STIs for public health is dependent on delivery of prevention messages to raise awareness, use of appropriate diagnostic tests to reduce the burden of infection and provision of effective antimicrobial therapy to break transmission. In the absence of an apparent protective immune response, and hence no effective vaccine, antimicrobial therapy is an essential component of control but is often compromised by resistance resulting in therapeutic failure.
