Untreatable gonorrhea is on the rise in China

‘It’s almost like the bug is running faster than our ability to develop safe and effective drugs’

The sexually transmitted disease gonorrhea is becoming resistant to the only two antibiotics left to treat it — and it’s spreading in China, according to new research.

Gonorrhea is currently treated using a cocktail of two drugs, azithromycin and ceftriaxone, but the antibiotics are losing their efficacy. In China, almost 19 percent of gonorrhea cases are resistant to azithromycin and almost 11 percent to ceftriaxone, according to a study published today in Plos Medicine. This latest number is what’s most concerning, says Vanessa Allen, chief of medical microbiology at Public Health Ontario, who was not involved in the research.
