Antimicrobials (AM) play a critical role in the treatment of human and animal (aquatic and terrestrial) diseases, which has led to their widespread application and use. Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is the ability of microorganisms (e.g.

According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), Colistin is a “reserve” antibiotic, which means it is supposed to be considered a “last-resort” option in treatment and used only in the most sever

In light of established principles and strategies for appropriate use of antimicrobial medicines, this paper examines studies on antimicrobial use trends across several countries in the Asia and Pacific regions.

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) – in which a microorganism (such as a bacterium, virus, fungus or parasite) becomes resistant to an antimicrobial drug used to treat infections caused by it – is possibly the most serious public health threat of our time.

Growing political attention to antimicrobial resistance (AMR) offers a rare opportunity for achieving meaningful action. Many governments have developed national AMR action plans, but most have not yet implemented policy interventions to reduce antimicrobial overuse.

Rivers around the world are contaminated with dangerous levels of antibiotics, according to a major new study.

The search for a bioactive natural antibacterial agent with wound healing properties is a common practice for the development of new-generation molecules.

UN, international agencies and experts released a groundbreaking report demanding immediate, coordinated and ambitious action to avert a potentially disastrous drug-resistance crisis.

If no action is taken, drug-resistant diseases could cause 10 million deaths each year by 2050 and damage to the economy as catastrophic as during the 2008-2009 global financial crisis warns this report by the UN Ad hoc Interagency Coordinating Group on Antimicrobial Resistance. By 2030, antimicrobial resistance could force up to 24 million people into extreme poverty.
