RawStory.com has posted an article / interview with Dr. Arjun Srinivasan, an associate director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, who is quoted as saying, “for a long time, there have been newspaper stories and covers of magazines that talked about ‘The end of antibiotics, question mark?’ Well, now I would say you can change the title to ‘The end of antibiotics, period.’”

He goes on, “We’re in the post-antibiotic era. There are patients for whom we have no therapy, and we are literally in a position of having a patient in a bed who has an infection, something that five years ago even we could have treated, but now we can’t.”
