Explore the public health implications of increasing bacterial resistance to antibiotics, in this video from FRONTLINE: Hunting the Nightmare Bacteria. Two doctors explain that, while antibiotics have helped protect people from infections since becoming widely available after World War II, this unique class of drugs is losing its effectiveness from overuse. The more exposure bacteria have to an antibiotic, the more likely they will develop resistance to the antibiotic. Because as much as half of all antibiotic use in the United States is either unnecessary or inappropriate, more and more people may die of infections that were once easily treatable. This resource is part of the FRONTLINE collection.

Twin-Twin Transfusion Syndrome is a condition in which identical twins share a placenta and pass the mother's blood unevenly between them, causing one twin to become too large and the other to become too small. The large baby has to pump too much blood for its heart to keep up with, while the small twin becomes too small to properly develop. As a result, both twins can die suddenly in utero. When diagnosed early, fetal surgeons may be able to intervene and correct the condition.

Spina bifida is a condition in which a hole in the spinal column leaves a section of the spinal cord and spinal nerves exposed through an opening in an unborn baby's back. When expectant mothers and the fetus meet the criteria, surgeons can operate about halfway through the pregnancy to close the hole and minimize the nerve damage. By repairing the hole, doctors hope to improve the quality of the child's life with greater mobility and independence.
