As a lucky exception from the empirical rule of rapid development of resistance, S. pyogenes has kept its susceptibility to penicillin, which can still be used to treat infections that it has caused. The reason for this fortunate condition is unknown. Despite the fact that sulfonamides have not long been used for the treatment of streptococcal infections, sulfonamide resistance is common among present isolates of S. pyogenes. This is a further interesting illustration of the nonreversibility of resistance in the absence of the selecting effect of the drug.

The fitness cost of resistance assumed must have been compensated in some way. The resistance remaining today can be looked at as a scar left by an earlier antibacterial treatment frequently used. It is an illustration of how our use of antibacterial agents changes bacterial evolution. A closer study of the sulfonamide resistance mechanism among meningococci revealed surprisingly large differences between resistant and susceptible isolates in the gene expressing dihydropteroate synthase, the target enzyme of sulfonamides.

A comparison between Canada (British Columbia) and the European average showed that the Canadian consumption of antibiotics was comparable to that in Sweden but that the European average was more than 10% higher. c=* ESAC2&n=21600). From this and other investigations it was observed that antibiotic sales could vary more than fourfold between European countries. 6). All these data on antibiotics consumption speak for stricter control of antibiotics use. This ought to limit overconsumption and diminish the total selection pressure toward resistance development.
