Antibiotic resistance trends mapped

An online tool called ResistanceMap, on The Center for Disease Dynamics, Economics & Policy website, can be used to track the rise in antibiotic-resistant pathogens like ciprofloxacin-resistant E. coli in the United States. Researchers and policy makers can use the maps to chart areas in need of better infection control. The project is funded by the RW Johnson Foundation. The maps will be updated monthly.
