Found colistin resistant bacteria in rural Vietnam
Works "Wide-spread contamination of colistin-resistant bacteria transmits Escherichia coli with mrc gene resistance in Vietnamese residents."

(Wide dissemination of colistin-resistant Escherichia coli with healthy residents in Vietnam) by Osaka University researchers (Japan) and Science and Technology Center for Medicine, Thai Binh Medical University published in the Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy shows the presence of Escherichia coli (CR-E), a colistin-resistant bacterium in the rural population of Vietnam at a high level of 70%.

Colistin is an old antibiotic, though rarely used because of its high toxicity to the kidneys, but it is the last choice for inflammatory and septic diseases. Colistin resistance is mainly related to chromosomes.

Previously it was not noticed, but after an announcement in 2015 in China about the mrc gene in pathogens can be transmitted to genes of other organisms that make the world health community to notice. Therefore, when studying this issue, Japanese and Vietnamese researchers saw a large amount of colistin-resistant bacteria in the meat of cattle species colistin was added to animal feed in Vietnam, CR-E ratio in the gut microbiota of people is quite high (70.4%), CR-E has mcr gene. The authors recommend, although people with CR-E are not affected to health immediately but there is a risk of clinical treatment of infectious diseases.
