NIGHTMARE BACTERIA coming to your PBS station October 22nd!
It's not quite the Zombie Apocalypse, but these carbepenem-resistant nightmare bacteria are clearly the next scariest thing. PBS's Frontline seems to think so. Producer/Writer/Director Rick Young has pulled together a 1-hour investigation into antibacterial resistant infections including (it appears) NDM-1 and the NIH CRE outbreak. From the promotional material it also seems that the program will touch on the lack of investment in drug discovery in addition to excess use, as causes of the epidemic. Remember, check your local listings.
