    The Superbug NDM1which stands for New Delhi metallo-beta-lactamase is started to spread in the world. The researchers found a new Bacteria called New Delhi metallo-beta-lactamase (NDM-1) Bacteria, in patients of Asia and Britain. According to an international team of scientists People who traveled to India and Pakistan to get medical treatment risk picking up and spreading a new Superbug Bacteria.

    Super Bug Bacteria

    How NDM-1 effects Human Body

    • Multi drug-resistant bacteria are already a growing problem in hospitals across the world, marked by the rise of “superbug” infections like methicillin-resistant Staphyloccus aureus (MRSA).
    • NDM-1 makes bacteria highly resistant to almost all antibiotics, including the most powerful class called carbapenems.
    • Most worryingly, NDM-1-producing bacteria are resistant to many antibiotics including carbapenems.
    • The scientists said, a class of the drugs generally reserved for emergency use and to treat caused by other multi-resistant bacteria such as MRSA and C-Difficile.

    Symptoms of Super bug NDM-1 Bacteria, Klebsiella Pneumoniae and E. Coli Symptoms

    • Klebsiella bacteria contains the superbug NDM-1.
    • Klebsiella pneumoniae symptoms include sudden Onset, of High Fever and Hemoptysis .
    • Klebsiella pneumoniae is a common gram-negative bacteria seen worldwide.
    • It is also causing Urinary Tract Infections, Nosocomial Pneumonia, and Intra abdominal infections.
    • NDM-1 which is found in the E. Coli bacteria may be the cause of Urinary Tract Infections.
    • E. Coli is the leading cause of urinary tract infections outside of hospitals.
    • E. Coli is Antibiotic-resistant.
    • E. Coli is also responsible for cases of Fatal Pneumonia and other infections.

    Superbug NDM 1 Bacteria

    Countries where Superbug NDM1 Bacteria is spreading

    In a study published in The Lancet Infectious Diseases journal, the researchers found that NDM-1 is becoming more common in Bangladesh, India, and Pakistan and is starting to be imported back to Britain in patients returning from these countries.

    Experiments with Superbug NDM-1 Bacteria

    Walsh and his international team collected bacteria samples from hospital patients in two places in India, Chennai and Haryana, and from patients referred to Britain’s national reference laboratory between 2007 and 2009.They found 44 NDM-1-positive bacteria in Chennai, 26 in Haryana, 37 in Britain, and 73 in other sites in Bangladesh, India, and Pakistan.

    Preventing the Spread of Superbug NDM-1 Bacteria

    To prevent spread of Superbug NDM-1 Bacteria, Doctors advise to provide adequate cleaning and sanitizing of all areas is the best means of preventing further spread of the superbug bacteria. Hospitals and doctors are under advise to stay on top of the cleanliness issue.

    Experts commenting on Walsh’s findings said it was important to be alert to the new bug and start screening for it early. It seems to be more dangerous than Swine flu, since it is working on Resistance of Human body.

    Johann Pitout from the University of Calgary in Canada expressed:

    If this emerging public health threat is ignored, sooner or later the medical community could be confronted with carbapenem-resistant (bacteria) that cause common infections, resulting in treatment failures with substantial increases in health-care costs
