A preventative treatment for rUTI

UTIs are one of most common bacterial infections reported in primary care1.

Studies suggest up to 30% of these patients will go on to experience rUTIs2. Trimethoprim and Nitrofurantoin are recommended as the first line treatment for acute infection. However, NICE reports that one in three (34%) samples analysed were found to be resistant to trimethoprim and 3% of patients had developed a resistance to Nitrofurantoin5.

Threat of antimicrobial resistance

The World Health Organization (WHO) has identified antibiotic resistance as one of the biggest threats to global health, rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world6.

New resistance mechanisms are emerging and spreading globally, threatening the ability to treat common infectious diseases6.

‘The world urgently needs to change the way it prescribes and uses antibiotics’6
