WASHINGTON - Drug-resistant gonorrhea is spreading across the United States and new treatments are needed to combat the sexually transmitted disease, the federally run Centers for Disease Control said Friday.
The CDC is so alarmed at the spike in cases of gonorrhea, one of the most common STDs in America, that it is no longer recommending doctors treat it with kind of antibiotics typically prescribed in the past, it said in a statement.
The warning came after a study showed that the number of gonorrhea cases in men rose dramatically in 26 US cities between 2001 and 2006.
