IDIBAPS participates in European Network on antibiotic resistances and hospital infections

This release is also available in Spanish.

The MOSAR project (Mastering hOSpital Antimicrobial Resistance and its spread into the community) is the first European-scale work devoted to the control and study of antimicrobial resistance in hospitals. MOSAR is coordinated by the Institut national de la sant e de la recherche mdicale (INSERM, Christian Brun-Buisson, unit 657 "Pharmaco-epidemiology and assessment of the impact of health products on populations"), and has about 20 public and private laboratories, and more than 50 hospitals in Europe and Israel. IDIBAPS-Hospital Clnic is the only nationwide representative of the network, and has the participation of the group of Dr. Jordi Vila, head of the Bacteriology Unit of Hospital Clnic, and member of the Public health, epidemiology and international health group of IDIBAPS.

The appearance and spread of resistant bacteria is one of the most alarming events of the last fifty years. This problem is aggravated by the slow pace of design of innovative antibiotics during the last 20 years. This phenomenon is most visible in the framework of hospitals, but general population is also affected, since exchanges between both sectors are increasingly rapid and numerous. Research on the transmission dynamics of four types of microorganisms (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, vancomycin-resistant enterococcus, Acinetobacter spp. and extended-spectrum-lactamase-producing Enterobacter) will allow a design of strategies to control the appearance and spread of these multiresistant microorganisms.

MOSAR will structure the network in a platform of services in order to establish industrial collaborations with the large private institutions of this field. All MOSAR members are highly involved in the fight against bacterial resistances. MOSAR is a 5-year integrated project
