Super Gonorrhea Bugs Spur New Treatment Regimen in Europe

By Jason Gale

Pfizer Inc. (PFE)s Zithromax or a generic version of the antibiotic pill should be added to the standard treatment for gonorrhea to fight multidrug-resistant strains of the sexually transmitted bacterium, doctors in Europe said.

New European guidelines for sexually transmitted infections recommend giving azithromycin as well as the injected medicine ceftriaxone, which is beginning to lose its potency against gonorrhea. The guidelines also recommend patients be tested after finishing a course of treatment to check they are cured.

The changes, outlined in a report yesterday in the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Controls weekly journal Eurosurveillance, are in response to sporadic cases in which ceftriaxone and a similar antibiotic, cefixime, failed to eliminate Neisseria gonorrhoeae, the microbial cause of gonorrhea.
