Scientists exploring the genome of Salmonella enterica Serovar Typhi have unveiled the alarming presence of antimicrobial resistance genes from isolates of the recent outbreak in Bangladesh; new geographical origins and spread of resistance is implicated.
Researchers from the University of Zurich have discovered that thanatin, a compound produced naturally by the spined soldier bug, could target Gram-negative bacteria by preventing formation of the bacteria’s outer membrane – an unprecedented mechanism.
Take a look at our page for World Antibiotic Awareness Week, including some of our top content from the year, exclusive opinion pieces and a compilation of our #TalkAMR videos!
Antimicrobial resistance and sepsis are inherently interconnected issues, but are campaigns for antibiotic stewardship competing against sepsis awareness campaigns with regards to their messages on antibiotic use?
By carefully considering the characteristics of certain old and new antibiotics, it may be possible to overcome many bacterial resistance mechanisms, including when more than one is present.
A Phase II, muti-center, randomized, open-label trial has reported that a novel oral antibiotic, zoliflodacin, is effective in the treatment of uncomplicated urogenital gonorrhea.
A new study from the ECDC has estimated that 33,000 individuals die each year as a consequence of infections with antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
In this article, the authors discuss their research using non-ribosome targeting tobramycin-based adjuvants to overcome the intrinsic resistance observed in bacteria, Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
