Occurrence and Distribution of Antibiotic Resistance in Artic Bacteria to Enviromental Antibiotic Exposure and Human Fecal Contamination

María Gómez Lozano, Rolando Saltini, Ingela Dahllöf, Maria E Granberg & Arne Villumsen
Sewage treatment plants are lacking in Sisimiut (Greenland). Thus, untreated wastewater from Sisimiut´s hospital containing active antibiotics is discharged directly into the sea. The effect of the antibiotic contamination in the marine ecosystem was investigated. Bacteria with acquired resistance towards several antibiotics were found in the contaminated site, including potential human pathogens. The presence of bacteria with acquired antibiotic resistance is a problem for both the marine ecosystem and human health, as well as a...
