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.
