Any Information About the New Strain Gonorrhea?

Q:
Any information about the new strain gonorrhea?

A:
A new strain of gonorrhea occurs which is not treatable by current means according to the World Health Organization.

This new strain of gonorrhea is a kind of antibiotic-resistent strain that develops because of the mistreatment of gonorrhea bacteria left in the throat after oral sex.

Both of the current antibiotics used to treat gonorrhea, ceftriaxone and azithromycin, are becoming increasingly ineffective against the new strain.

There are three new drugs that are being studied for the treatment of this new antibiotic-resistent gonorrhea strain, the solithromycin, which has completed a phase III trial, and other two drugs which have completed phase II trials.

But what remain unclear are when these drugs will reach the pharmaceutical market and whether they can treat the disease.
