Dr. Ramanan Laxminarayan: Drug Resistant Economist Warns Against Antibiotic Resistance

Healthy Human Revolution

Have you ever heard of a drug resistant economist? Have you ever thought how economics would intersect with antibiotics? Well, I didn't either until I read an article that Dr.Ramanan Laxminarayan had coauthored. What I read has led me to rethink about the world's drug resistant problems on a much broader scale, including how antibiotics are used in animal agriculture to promote growth. (one more reason to eat plants!) This discussion will challenge how you think about antibiotics and hopefully think twice before insisting on antibiotics at your next doctor's visit when he/she says it is a virus...Dr. Laxminarayan directs the Center for Disease Dynamics, Economics & Policy. He is also a Senior Research Scholar and Lecturer at Princeton University. His research deals with the integration of epidemiological models of infectious diseases and drug resistance into the economic analysis of public health problems. He has worked to improve understanding of drug resistance as a problem of managing a shared global resource.Laxminarayan has worked with the World Health Organization (WHO) and the World Bank on evaluating malaria treatment policy, vaccination strategies, the economic burden of tuberculosis, and control of non-communicable diseases. He has served on a number of advisory committees at WHO, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Institute of Medicine. This is one of those fascinating conversations I wish could have went longer. This subject affects ALL of us on earth...please share this important message and I hope you learn as much as I did!Thank you for listening like always! Please share the podcast!

La cercana crisis de los antibióticos | Ramanan Laxminarayan

TEDTalks Salud

Los antibióticos salvan vidas, pero los utilizamos demasiado y, con frecuencia, no lo hacemos para salvar vidas, sino que los utilizamos para tratar la gripe o criar gallinas. El resultado, afirma el investigador Ramanan Laxminarayan, es que las bacterias que atacamos se vuelven más resistentes y así, los antibióticos están dejando de tener efecto. Laxminarayan nos pide a todos, tanto a pacientes como a médicos, que reflexionemos sobre los antibióticos y su eficacia actual como un recurso limitado y que pensemos dos veces antes de emplearlos. Se trata de una perspectiva aleccionadora sobre cómo las tendencias clínicas globales pueden dañarnos.

Die bevorstehende Antibiotikakrise | Ramanan Laxminarayan

TEDTalks Gesundheit

Antibiotika retten Leben. Aber wir verwenden sie einfach zu oft – und oftmals für nicht-lebensrettende Zwecke, wie zur Behandlung der Grippe und sogar zur verbilligten Aufzucht von Hühnern. Das Ergebnis ist laut dem Forscher Ramanan Laxminarayan, dass die Medikamente nicht mehr bei jedem wirken werden, da die Bakterien, auf die sie abzielen, immer resistenter werden. Er fordert jeden einzelnen von uns auf (Patienten wie Ärzte), Antibiotika – sowie ihre anhaltende Wirksamkeit – als endlichen Rohstoff zu betrachten und sehr genau zu überlegen, bevor man ihn anzapft. Es ist eine ernüchternde Betrachtung, wie weltweite medizinische Trends nach hinten losgehen können.

La prochaine crise des antibiotiques | Ramanan Laxminarayan

TEDTalks Santé

Les antibiotiques sauvent des vies. Mais nous les utilisons trop, et souvent pour des raisons qui ne sont pas vitales, comme pour traiter la grippe, ou même pour élever des poulets moins chers. Selon le chercheur Ramanan Laxminarayan, le résultat en est que le médicament ne va plus marcher dans tous les cas, à mesure que la bactérie qu'il cible va devenir de plus en plus résistante. Il nous appelle tous (les patients comme les médecins) à voir les antibiotiques comme une ressource limitée, et à y réfléchir à deux fois avant d'y puiser. Une vision qui donne à réfléchir sur la façon dont les tendances médicales mondiales peuvent nous atteindre personnellement.

A chegada da crise dos antibióticos | Ramanan Laxminarayan

TEDTalks Saúde

Antibióticos salvam vidas. Mas nós simplesmente os utilizamos muito, e muitas vezes, para fins que não o de salvar vidas, como o tratamento da gripe e até mesmo a criação mais barata de galinhas. O resultado, diz o pesquisador Ramanan Laxminarayan, é que os remédios vão parar de funcionar para todos, conforme as bactérias que eles atacam, ficam cada vez mais resistentes. Ele convida todos nós (pacientes e médicos também) a pensar nos antibióticos, e sua eficácia em curso, como um recurso finito, e a pensar duas vezes antes de tomá-los. É um olhar racional sobre como as tendências médicas globais podem nos afetar.

다가오는 항생제의 위기 | 라마난 락스미나라얀 (Ramanan Laxminarayan)

TEDTalks 건강

항생제는 생명을 살립니다. 하지만 우리는 이를 과다하게 사용하고 있습니다 - 독감을 치료하거나 닭을 좀 더 싸게 키우는 것과 같은, 생명을 살리는 것과 무관한 용도로 사용하는 일도 허다합니다. 연구원 라마난 락스미나라얀에 의하면, 결과적으로 모두에게 약이 듣지 않게 될 것이라고 합니다. 항생제가 목표로 하는 박테리아가 점점 더 내성이 강해지기 때문입니다. 그는 (환자와 의사를 포함한) 우리 모두에게 항생제와 그 효과를 한정된 자원으로 보고, 사용하기 전에 한 번 더 생각해달라고 얘기합니다. 이는 국제적인 의료 추세가 어떻게 일반 가정에까지 영향을 미칠 수 있는지에 대한 충격적인 관점입니다.

The coming crisis in antibiotics | Ramanan Laxminarayan

TED Health

Antibiotic drugs save lives. But we simply use them too much — and often for non-lifesaving purposes, like treating the flu and even raising cheaper chickens. The result, says researcher Ramanan Laxminarayan, is that the drugs will stop working for everyone, as the bacteria they target grow more and more resistant. He calls on all of us (patients and doctors alike) to think of antibiotics -- and their ongoing effectiveness -- as a finite resource, and to think twice before we tap into it. It's a sobering look at how global medical trends can strike home.
