The new, untreatable strain of the sexually transmitted disease was discovered in Japan, according to an international team of infectious disease experts. What has researchers worried is that the strain seems to be resistant to all known forms of antibiotics:
The international research team has dubbed the superbug strain of Neisseria gonorrhoeae H041. They say the strain could transform gonorrhea from what was once an easily treatable sexually transmitted infection into a serious public health threat.

He and his team announced the discovery Monday, at the International Society for Sexually Transmitted Disease Research conference in Quebec City.
