The UK government has published a 20-year vision and a 5-year national action plan for how the UK will contribute to controlling and containing antimicrobial resistance by 2040.
A study published in the BMJ, involving more than 19 million patients, has concluded that 23.9% of antibiotic prescriptions given to outpatients in the US are inappropriate.
More focus should be put on determining if pathogens are resistant or resilient to antibiotics, according to a new study. This distinction could allow for improved, personalized treatment and help to preserve current antibiotics.
Take a look behind the scenes of a recent Future Microbiology paper as we ask the authors about the challenges in treating respiratory tract infections and how nanomedicines could help.
Whole-genome sequencing of Salmonella enterica Serovar Typhi reveals new antimicrobial resistant isolates
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.
