Senator takes on antibiotic resistant organisms

Digital Journal

Washington - With so-called “super bugs” on the rise, U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) has introduced a bill aimed at slowing down the rate of antibiotic resistant microorganisms.

Senator Brown has introduced the Strategies to Address Antimicrobial Resistance (STAAR) Act. This is legislation aimed at combating antimicrobial resistance. In presenting the Act, Brown called for greater Federal attention to the growth of antibiotic-resistant infections, which affect more than two million Americans each year.

Brown is aiming for the STAAR Act to provide an opportunity to bring multiple federal and non-governmental partners together to protect the public health from these drug-resistant bugs.
