Antibiotic Resistance

Dr. Alexander Fleming discovered penicillin in 1928 and received the Nobel Prize in 1945, along with Dr. Howard Florey and Dr. Ernst Chain, “for the discovery of penicillin and its curative effect in various infectious diseases.” In his Noble Prize lecture he warned of the development of antibiotic resistance. On this Line One program, host Dr. Woodard discusses the ominous and growing problem of antibiotic resistance 70 years later. Infectious disease specialist Dr. Jay Butler and infectious disease pharmacist Dr. Thaddus Wilkerson join the show.
