Antibiotic resistance surges in dolphins, mirroring humans | Science Daily

Researchers from Florida Atlantic University’s Oceanographic Institute, along with the Georgia Aquarium, conducted a long-term study of pathogen resistance in bottlenose dolphins. Upon finding a high prevalence of antibiotic resistance in wild dolphins, the researchers realized that the trend mirrors human healthcare reports. By studying what causes the resistance in dolphins, which makes it more difficult to treat infections, the study can help find out how to better treat pathogens in humans.
