Research News for December 2000

The CDC has reported that 24% of strains of Streptococcus pneumoniae--the leading bacterial cause of pneumonia, middle ear infections and meningitis--now appear to be resistant to penicillin. In addition, the CDC found that penicillin resistant infections were more common in children under 5 years of age (32%) compared with those older than five years of age (21%). Those infections resistant to penicillin also were more likely to be resistant to a number of different antibiotics.
