FDA Launches New Antibiotic Management Web Site

The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has launched a new Web site and online tool to help health care professionals with antibiotic prescribing and antibiotic management.  The new FDA Web site posts critical updates regarding antibiotics and antifungal drugs to health care professionals as part of an overall effort to combat antimicrobial resistance.  The FDA created the Web site to provide direct and timely access to information about when bacterial or fungal infections are likely to respond to a specific drug.  This approach is intended to aid health care professionals in making more informed prescribing decisions that will both benefit their patients and prevent the spread of resistant bacteria.  To read the FDA announcement and summary of its new antibiotic management Web site, use the link below.
