The main treatment—a combination of azithromycin and ceftriaxone—failed to alleviate the situation.“This is the first time a case has displayed such high-level resistance to both of these drugs and to most other commonly used antibiotics,” according to Gwenda Hughes, consultant scientist and head of Sexually Transmitted Infection section at Public Health England (PHE).The unfortunate chap, who has (had?) a regular partner in the UK, purportedly picked up the disease earlier this year. He is currently being treated with an unnamed antibiotic that may be his only hope.So far, no other cases of this super virus have yet been reported.For those who missed their high school sex-ed classes: The disease, caused by the bacterium Neisseria gonorrhoeae, is spread via unprotected vaginal, oral, and anal sex. About one in 10 cases do not present recognizable symptoms, which can include a thick green or yellow discharge from sexual organs, pain when urinating, and bleeding between periods.A nasty infection for anyone, complications of gonorrhoea disproportionately affect women, who have an increased risk of pelvic inflammatory disease, ectopic pregnancy and infertility, and HIV.Scientists have been keeping a close eye on particularly rebellious strains of the condition for a while; the World Health Organization in July announced that antibiotic resistance is making gonorrhoea harder, sometimes even impossible, to treat.“The bacteria that cause gonorrhoea are particularly smart,” Teodora Wi, a medical officer at WHO’s Department of Reproductive Health and Research, said in a statement last year. “Every time we use a new class of antibiotics to treat the infection, the bacteria evolve to resist them.”That’s not exactly what you want to hear about a virus that reaches some of the most sensitive areas of the human body.
