Drug Resistance 1 is a tier 1 ability. With it, a plague becomes immune to weak antibiotics, increasing infectivity in wealthy countries only.

It is recommended to be evolved early-game to mid-game in order for a plague to spread more effectively in wealthy countries, such as the USA. It is available in nearly all plague types, including the special plague types Neurax Worm, Necroa Virus, and Simian Flu, but not the Shadow Plague, being replaced by Anti-biotic Tolerance. This ability is also absent in the Mad Cow Disease scenario.
