Mandarin/Eng/Nat Taiwanese are taking so many antibiotics that they are becoming immune to their effects and run the risk of succumbing to even the most basic infection Taiwan spends more than 200 million U-S dollars a year on antibiotics. Doctors and patients regard them as a cure-all for most illnesses. At this large hospital in central Taipei - hundreds of Taiwanese come here to collect their medical prescriptions every day. For many the recommendation will be a course in antibiotics. Antibiotics are probably the most popular medicine in Taiwan. Many Taiwanese believe that the stronger the better - but few realise the complications involved. The government's Department of Health said that consumption of antibiotics totals more than 6 billion Taiwan dollars (equivalent to 218 million U-S dollars) annually, or about 16 percent of Taiwan's consumption of all medicines. The figure reflects Taiwan's affluence and a willingness to pay for the most expensive treatments available. Patients believe price determines effectiveness and many doctors are unwilling to deny them medication. The result - overpriced and incorrect dosages. But some doctors fear the abuse of anti-biotics is leading to something more serious - a growing antibacterial resistance to many of the anti-biotics on the taiwanese market. There is concern that antibiotics here will no longer be an effective weapon against bacteria. A recent study shows that bacterial resistance to anti-biotics in Taiwan ranges from 50 to 90 per cent. Many low level anti-biotics here have become useless - and the level of resistance may have become the highest in the world. SOUNDBITE: (Mandarin) "Doctors in infection-related fields may be the ones having the strongest sense of crisis now. Most of the infection specialists are having very serious sense of crisis, and many of the opinion leaders in this field are calling for attention on this." SUPER CAPTION: Doctor Chang Shan-chwen, National Taiwan University Hospital Due to an outdated medical system and weak law enforcement, locals can get anti- biotics without prescription in any drug store - despite a law fining those selling this kind of medicine without prescription up to 150,000 Taiwan dollars (5,454 U-S dollars). Drug stores say they sell anti-biotics illegally because doctors only issue prescriptions for dispensaries in their own hospitals to insure an income for the hospital. The misconceptions over anti-biotics are equally strong amongst many of the medical profession, especially in small clinics. Instead of starting with low-level anti-biotics, many doctors here prescribe strong doses immediately - hoping for a quick recovery of the patient and a reputation for themselves. SOUNDBITE: (English) "But they do not have a laboratory, bacteriology laboratory to find what kind of bacteria, what kind of anti-biotics is effective, they don't. So in this situation, in order to avoid legal problem, because some of them are not well-trained, they are not confident. So in this case, they just use expensive anti-biotics, to cover all bacteria. Of course it's effective, but expensive. you see what I mean?" SUPER CAPTION: Doctor Lee Sai-cheong, Chang Gung Memorial Hospital, Taipei The problem for doctors is that as resistance grows, fewer effective anti-biotics are left on the market. Specialists say mutation of bacteria is faster than pharmaceutical development, as no impressive breakthroughs have been reported on combatting bacteria in the past 10 years. Taiwan's Department of Health is trying to raise people's awareness on the dangers of overuse by releasing research data on bacterial resistance.
