How Over-Prescribed Antibiotics Impact Your Life

Baylor College of Medicine and Texas Children’s Hospital are using a five-year, $7.5 million grant from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases to try to develop ways to combat Clostridium difficile or C. diff, the most common and potentially deadly bacterial infection impacting children and adults. It’s a hospital-acquired infection, and it is often tied to inappropriate antibiotic use. We discuss the study, how antibiotics are prescribed and the long-term effects of their misuse, with Dr. Robert Britton, a professor of molecular virology and microbiology at Baylor College of Medicine. He’s also a part of the Alkek Center for Metagenomics and Microbiome Research.
