‘Local temperature rise linked to antibiotic resistance’

A multi-disciplinary team of epidemiologists from Harvard Medical School, Boston Children’s Hospital and the University of Toronto have found that increasing local temperatures and population densities are associated with increasing antibiotic resistance in common bacterial strains. The researchers found that an increase in temperature of 10 degrees Celsius was associated with an increase in antibiotic resistance of 4.2 percent, 2.2 ... Read More »
