Posted by on 8 April 2016 | Comments

Peak Antibiotics is a New Zealand documentary which aired on Prime this week. It takes a look at the cause, effects and potential solutions to the looming state of 'peak antibiotics', where common harmful microbes will eventually become fully resistant to available antibiotic treatments.

With a local angle, the show features several New Zealanders who have been significantly affected by antimicrobial-resistant pathogens, with interviews from national experts including Professor Greg Cook from the Department of Microbiology and Immunology.
