Antibiotics Past, Present and Future Jay King Ortho-McNeil A Division of Johnson & Johnson
Things aren’t so bad?
Or Are They?
“Past, Present and Future”…. Or a more appropriate title….. “The Good, Bad and the Ugly”
Antibiotic Quotes In 1969 the U.S. Surgeon General, William H. Stewart declared “It’s time to close the book on infectious disease and declare the war against pestilence won.” August 3, 2002, Infectious Disease Specialist Dr. Andrew Simor stated “We’re not at the point where all antibiotics are useless, that’s overstating it…..But there’s no question we have a problem with increasing bacterial resistance to current antibiotics.”  The office of the Public Health Service Historian.

The U.S. Centers for Disease and Prevention spends more than $11 million a year monitoring drug resistance. Source: CQ Researcher online: compiled by Denver Post Librarian Barry Osborne
Resistance Antimicrobial resistance is common, is increasing, and has a major impact on mortality, healthcare costs, and disease severity.
Wanna Be A Superbug??????
Bacteria Facts There are 5-10 times more microbes living on and in every human being than there are human cells in our body. Bacteria exist in large numbers miles deep in the midst of solid rock in the earth’s crust. Microbes comprise fully 60% of the biomass on the planet (90% if cellulose is excluded from the calculation) despite their submicron size. Spellberg S, et al. CID 2008:46 (15 January)
Microbe Resilience Microbes can exist despite: –Extremes of boiling or freezing temperatures –Pressures sufficient to crush virtually any human- made submersible –Extreme salinity –Zero oxygen content –Presence or absence of sunlight Spellberg S, et al. CID 2008:46 (15 January)
So, are we at war with bacteria? It’s important to remember, humans did not invent antibiotics…… We only discovered them!!!
Current Resistance Trends
MRSA Facts The prevalence of MRSA in intensive care units went from 36% in 1992 to 62% in 2002. The most recent National Nosocomial Infections Surveillance Report noted that rates of infection with S. Aureus resistant to methicillin, oxacillin, or nafcillin was approximately 60% in 2003. In 2006, the prevalence of MRSA in ER patients with skin and soft tissue infection was 59% overall.   McDonald LC. CID. 2006;42(suppl 2): S65-S71  (NNIS) System Report, data summary from Jan through June 2004, issued Oct Am J Infect Control. 2004; 32:  Moran GJ, et al. N Engl J Med. 2006; 355:
Hospital Antimicrobial Resistant Facts About 70% of hospital-acquired bacterial infections are resistant to at least one antimicrobial agent. Treating these antibiotic resistant infections can require longer lengths of stay in the hospital and thus greater costs of treatment. IDSA. Bad bugs, no drugs
Gram Negative Resistance Facts In 2003, gram negative bacilli in the ICU were associated with: –71.1% of urinary tract infections –65.2% of pneumonia episodes –33.2% of surgical site infections –23.8% of bloodstream infections – Gaynes R et al. CID. 2005; 41:
Pseudomonas Resistant Facts Pseudomonas Aeruginosa is responsible for 10% of all hospital acquired infections. In 2003, resistance among pseudomonas isolates recovered from the ICU to 3 rd generation cephalosporins and quinolones was approximately 30% and was 20% to carbapenems.  Aloush V, et al.

So How Do We Combat Resistance? New Antibiotic Development & Appropriate Antibiotic Usage
New Drug Research and Development An Aggressive R&D Program Initiated Today Would Likely Require 10 or More Years and an Investment of $800 Million to $1.7 Billion to Bring a New Drug to Market.  Copyright IDSA 2007,

I Wanna New Drug!!!!!
Challenges for Antibiotic Research and Development Because antibiotics work so well and so fast, in most cases they simply don’t have as large a market as drugs that treat chronic, long- term conditions or lifestyle issues.  The development of resistant strains of bacteria limits the long-term potential for an antibiotic.   Copyright IDSA 2007,
Challenges Continued Infectious disease experts often suggest restrictions on the use of new antibiotics in order to preserve the effectiveness of these drugs for those patients who need them most. Although sensible from a public health perspective, such restrictions reduce the incentive for companies to develop new antibiotics.  Copyright IDSA 2007,
Challenges Continued Drugs to treat infectious diseases require an additional “burden of proof” in the drug approval process. –Clinical trials for each indication –Large # of patients to ensure safety and efficacy –Large # of patients to document drug’s effectiveness against specific bacterial pathogens –No rapid diagnostic test to identify eligible patients with resistant pathogens Copyright IDSA 2007,
Results of Challenges A recent analysis published in Clinical Infectious Disease (CID) found only five antibiotics in the R&D pipeline out of more than 506 drugs in development. By comparison, pharmaceutical companies were developing 67 new drugs for cancer, 33 for inflammation and pain, 34 for metabolic/endocrine disorders, and 32 for pulmonary disease. Copyright IDSA 2007,
More Results The CID analysis found that FDA approvals of new antibiotics declined 56% during the past 20 years( versus ) In 2002, among 89 new medicines emerging on the market, none was an antibiotic. Copyright IDSA 2007,

IDSA “Wish-list” A set of 12 strategies to address antimicrobial resistant infections. The wish list takes a holistic approach to the problem by recognizing that each of us, including physicians, patients, antibiotic manufacturers, personnel at hospitals and other health care facilities, and others, must act as good partners in keeping antibiotics available and effective for the long term. Spellberg, B., et al, CID, 2008:46 pg 6
Wish-list Proposals Are As Follows: 1) The creation of a Federal Office of Antimicrobial Resistance in the Dept of health and human Services to coordinate and fund the work of the Interagency Task Force to further strengthen and implement the domestic Action Plan, as well as to develop an international action plan.
Wish-list Cont. 2) The creation of a public health advisory board comprised of experts, including specialists in infectious diseases, hospital and community- based physicians, public health officers,and veterinary and research specialists, to recommend ways to strengthen the federal action plan.  Spellberg, B., Et al, CID, 2008:46 pg 6
Wish-list Cont. 3) The establishment of a federal strategic research plan on antimicrobial resistance that will focus on basic, clinical, translational, epidemiological, and intervention research. Spellberg, B., et al, CID, 2008:46 pg 6
Wish-list Continued 4) The creation of an Antimicrobial Resistance Clinical Research and Public Health Network (at least 10 sites across the U.S.) to track and confirm, in near real time, the emergence of antibiotic-resistant pathogens, to conduct research, and to enhance our capacity to prevent, control, and treat infections due to antibiotic-resistant organisms.  Spellberg, B., et al, CID, 2008:46 pg 6
Wish-list Continued 5) The collection of relevant antimicrobial consumption data, including antibiotic human and animal antibiotic use data and available prescribing data. 6) Strengthened surveillance programs to monitor and track resistance patterns.  Spellberg, B., et al, CID, 2008:46 pg 6
Wish-list Continued 7) A requirement that pharmaceutical manufacturers submit to the FDA, as a part of a new drug application, a resistance impact statement that predicts how approval and use of the antibiotic may impact the development of resistance, as well as a management plan that aims to slow the development of resistance associated with the drug’s use. Spellberg, B., et al, CID, 2008:46 pg 6
Wish-list Continued 8) Sufficient federal funding to implement the federal Action Plan, including for antibiotic stewardship programs to limit the spread of resistance. 9) The establishment and periodic updates by the FDA of antibiotic susceptibility breakpoints for microorganisms based on expert input, to assist physicians in using antibiotics wisely.  Spellberg, B., et al, CID, 2008:46 pg 6
Wish-list Continued 10) A reassessment and strengthening of FDA’s regulatory authority relating to the use of antibiotics in food-producing animals. 11) More appropriately regulate the use of antibiotics in agriculture, including phasing out the use of antibiotics for growth promotion in food animals.  Spellberg, B., et al, CID, 2008:46 pg 6
Final Wish on Wish-list 12) A requirement that the US GAO audit the success of the aforementioned measures in completing their stated aims.  Spellberg, B., et al, CID, 2008:46 pg 6
Appropriate Antibiotic Use
The 4 D’s of Appropriate Antibiotic Usage: Drug Dose Duration De-escalation
Antimicrobial Stewardship Programs An initiative to promote responsible use of antibiotic resources
What Is the Goal of an Antimicrobial Stewardship Program? The goal of antimicrobial stewardship is to select the appropriate antibiotic, prescribe it at the right dose and the optimal duration, so that it provides the patient with the best possible clinical outcome while minimizing adverse events, the selection of pathogenic organisms, and the development of resistance.    Dellit TH, et al. CID. 2007; 44:  Owens RC, Ambrose PG. Diagn Microbiol Infect Dis. 2007; 57 (3 Suppl) :S77-S83
Antimicrobial Stewardship Team Consists of: Hospital Administrators Staff Physicians Infection Control Staff Pharmacy Staff
Potential Recommendations of a Stewardship Team Prospective audit with intervention and feedback Formulary restriction and preauthorization Development of guidelines and clinical pathways Antimicrobial order forms De-escalation therapy, which may include initial combination therapy Dose optimization Parenteral to oral oral conversion as soon as possible Computer surveillance and decision support   Dellit TH, et al. CID. 2007; 44:
