The theory is that allowing nonresistant parasites to remain will cause them to share their genetics with the resistant parasites, thus weakening their overall resistance over time.
Complication rates were higher (19%) and median illness duration was longer (9 days) among patients with ciprofloxacin-resistant isolates than among those with nonresistant isolates (9%; 7 days), but the differences were not statistically significant.
Contemplating his idiosyncratic biography of Jesus -- "my Christ is a poet," he writes, "a Bohemian poet; my Christ is a pacifist, a nonresistant Tolstoy" -- he ends with a puzzling sequence: "The Yellow Christ on the Cross, on the Waiting Cross, the Patient Christ, my Christ." We have encountered a Yellow Christ before in this book, referring both to Gauguin's painting and to a distinctively Asian version of the martyr-saviour.
Patients in the carbapenem-resistant ACB complex group had a higher rate of recent admission within 3 months and insertion of indwelling nasogastric tubes as compared with those in the nonresistant complex group, but these differences did not reach significance ( P = 0.066 and 0.0051, respectively).
The average health care spending for patients with antibiotic resistance is about 165% higher than for patients with nonresistant infections, Emory University and Saint Louis University researchers found in the first national estimate of the incremental costs for treating ABR infections.

Patients were placed into resistant and nonresistant groups, based on their platelet function test results, and the baseline characteristics of these patients correlated to resistance groups are shown in Table 4: only creatinine level, fibrinogen, Pq numerisation, and IPP use show statistically significant association (P = 0.01; 0.04; 0.04; and 0.03, resp.).
