Antimicrobial Resistance – the Rise of Global Superbugs. Political agendas, legislation, development of therapies and educational initiatives are essential to mitigate the increasing rate of antibiotic resistance. One interesting element to this puzzle is that bacteria acquire resistance to different antibiotics at different rates.

Vaz-Moreira I., Nunes O.C., Manaia C.M. of the microbial community. Antibiotic resistance. Antimicrobial resistance (AMR), or drug resistance, develops when bacteria, viruses, or fungi stop responding to existing antimicrobial treatments. The Antibiotic Resistance Crisis: Plasmids and Superbugs. Antibiotics are essential tools in modern medicine, indispensable not only for the treatment of infectious diseases but also as an essential support therapy in key medical interventions such as surgery and cancer chemotherapy. Antibiotics are often unnecessarily prescribed for common respiratory
ANTIMICROBIAL RESISTANCE Global Report on surveillance 2014 X Summary Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) threatens the effective prevention and treatment of an ever-increasing range of infections caused by bacteria, parasites, viruses and fungi. In a PLOS Biology article, scientists show that intracellular expres-sion of an antibiotic-metabolizing enzyme in a non-pathogenic strain of bacteria can provide resistance to the pathogen Streptococcus pneumoniae when the two types … Article ... Rappuoli R. Changing priorities in vaccinology: Antibiotic resistance moving to the top. Since antibiotic resistance is the result of natural selection for resistance-conferring mutations, it is important to understand the evolutionary processes underlying this selection. 1) dedicated his life’s work to the study of bacteria and infectious disease. > Stanley Falkow (Fig.
