NDM 1 is new enzyme that makes bacteria resizstant to antibiotic. It caused urinary/kiddneys infection, pneumonia, blood infection. NDM 1 found in E.Coli may cause fatal disease.
This infection started with medical tourism - cheap cure- especially in India.
UK detected recently pacient who travelled to plastic surgery India-Pakistan-UK and carrying NDM1
Japan reported 1 case in September. USA 3 in June.
Experts are worried that NDM 1 may jump to other bacteria and that will be chaos due to lack of right antibiotic.
Minimal time for new antibiotic, if you have big budget, is 1 year.
Think twice before going to India.
