American hospital patients now are increasingly at risk of infection from a new form of “superbugs” called carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae – or CRE. Dr. Tom Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), calls CRE “nightmare bacteria” and he’s right. In the last 10 years, the proportion of Enterobacteriaceae that were carbapenem-resistent, quadrupled from 1.2% in 2001 to 4.2% in 2011.
