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.

Order of the Supreme Court in the matter of Interglobe Aviation Limited Vs Union of India dated 02/07/2019 regarding disinfection of aircrafts through the process of fumigation.

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.

Rhino- and enteroviruses are important human pathogens, against which no antivirals are available. The best-studied inhibitors are “capsid binders” that fit in a hydrophobic pocket of the viral capsid.

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.

Although brown macroalgae holds potential as an alternative feedstock, its utilization by conventional microbial platforms has been limited due to the inability to metabolize one of the principal sugars, alginate. Here, we isolate Vibrio sp. dhg, a fast-growing bacterium that can efficiently assimilate alginate.

There is evidence that pathogenic bacteria can adapt to antiseptics upon repeated exposure. More alarming is the concomitant increase in antibiotic resistance that has been described for some pathogens. Unfortunately, efects of adaptation and cross-adaptation are hardly known for oral pathogens, which are very frequently exposed to antiseptics.

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

Polythene is the most widely used plastic around the globe.

Skin barrier dysfunction has been reported in both atopic dermatitis (AD) and food allergy (FA).
