New Delhi, Mar 15 (PTI) Age, sex and location could be important in assessing the antibiotic resistance of a bacterial infection, new research has found.

Antibiotic, or antimicrobial, resistance is a global public health threat and occurs when disease-causing germs evolve and develop a resistance to the very drugs designed to kill them, rendering these drugs ineffective.

The research, led by those at London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, UK, analysed data on bloodstream infections of nearly 9.5 lakh individuals across 29 European countries. The data was collected through routine surveillance between 2015 and 2019.
