Surprise! Incurable Super Gonorrhea has Arrived in North America
We’ve warned you over and over that cases of incurable Super Gonorrhea were being reported across the globe in 2012. Well, lucky day; Super Gonorrhea has officially arrived on North American shores and in North American genitals!
Other experts in the field call “its arrival deeply troubling; clinicians now face the emergence of cephalosporin-resistant N. gonorrhoeae without any well-studied, effective backup treatment options,” observed a team of researchers led by Robert Kirkcaldy, of the Division of STD Prevention at the CDC, in an essay published in the same issue of JAMA. And, they noted, as there are no proven alternative treatment waiting in the drug development wings, “the antibiotic pipeline is running dry.”
Bonus news: Men who have sex with men have demonstrated and even higher rate of antibiotic ineffectiveness in treating the Super G.
If you’re not wearing a full body condom, a pair of galoshes, and an umbrella when you get down and dirty these days, you are officially a crazy person.
Have you encountered the Super G yet? If you see him, tell him to stay away for me!
