A peek behind the paper – John P. Hays on antibiotic resistance targets for point-of-care diagnostics
In this interview, take a look behind the scenes of a recent Future Microbiology paper on antibiotic resistance targets for point-of-care diagnostics with author, John P. Hays.
Over 8000 combinations of four of five antibiotics have been demonstrated to be more effective than previously thought, according to new research.
The European Gonococcal Antimicrobial Surveillance Programme has revealed high levels of azithromycin resistance in Europe, however, these have remained relatively stable.
From antibiotic susceptibility testing to new instruments to screen for antibiotics, 3D printing is contributing to research on antimicrobial resistance.
In this interview, we speak to Ana Litvintseva, a Medical Mycologist and Team Lead at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC; GA, USA) about Candida auris, its emergence and the challenges it presents.
We speak to infectious diseases specialist, Ellie Goldstein (Santa Monica, CA, USA), about his recent publication on real world data and the challenges facing drug-resistant infections.
Another big pharmaceutical is retreating from the development of new antibiotics, highlighting concerns around the challenges facing this market.
Changes in both antibiotic concentration and nutrient availability can push populations beyond a tipping point, creating irreversible shifts in community composition to drug-resistance.
Antibiotic effectiveness can be restored if utilized in the correct combination with each other, non-antibiotic adjuvants or even food additives.
