The increase in cases of Gonorrhea and Chlamydia among the male population has not stopped increasing since 2005 in Catalonia. Many experts say that thanks to the effectiveness of current treatments it seems that the fear of contracting these diseases has been lost, but … Did you know that there have already been cases where Gonorrhea has already shown resistance to all existing antibiotics?

Drugs for gonorrhea in the research and development phase are scarce. There are only three new drugs in different phases of clinical development: solithromycin, with which a phase III clinical trial has recently been completed, and zoliflodacin and gepotidacin, with which phase II clinical trials have been completed.
Many cases of gonorrhea present without symptoms, so they can not be diagnosed or treated. On the other hand, in cases that do have symptoms, such as urethral or vaginal discharge, doctors sometimes assume that it is gonorrhea and prescribe antibiotics, although in reality it may be another type of infection.This inappropriate use of antibiotics increases and promotes the appearance of resistance to them in both gonorrhea and other bacterial diseases.
