Development of super bacterial antibiotic resistance diagnostic kit
At the 68th World Health Assembly (WHA) in May 2015, the WHO endorsed the Global Action Plan on Antimicrobial Resistance to tackle antimicrobial resistance (AMR) to address the challenge of AMR, which poses a serious threat to human health. They also launched the Global Antimicrobial Resistance Surveillance System(GLASS), ‘an international antibiotic resistance monitoring system’, for detecting the emergence of new tolerance and international outbreaks as a code of conduct.
To support the humanitarian response of the international community, APRILIS Co., Ltd. successfully developed ‘APRODETE™ CPE-KPC Kit’, a rapid diagnosis kit of carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE), which is designated by the WHO’s ranking of a Priority 1 (CRITICAL).
APRILIS Co., Ltd. will continuously promote researching and developing major antibiotic resistance diagnostic kits to become an international R&D company specialized in antibiotic resistance diagnosis.
