Environmental Hotspots for Antibiotic Resistance Genes

Misuse of antibiotics in humans, animals and plants lead to the development of antibiotic resistance. This phenomenon is not confined to humans or animals alone. Antibiotic resistance gets transferred between humans, animals, and the environment through antibiotic resistance genes. The soil and water contain diverse microbial communities. Antibiotic misuse coupled…

Prevalence and Multidrug Resistance Pattern of Methicillin Resistant S. aureus Isolated from Frozen Chicken Meat in Bangladesh

The World Health Organization (WHO) characterizes food-borne diseases as “disease of infectious or toxic nature caused by consumption of food or water. Out of various food-borne pathogens, infections by Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) are continuously expanding within the community. Methicillin resistance in this bacterial species is very alarming for human…

A descriptive analysis of antimicrobial resistance patterns of WHO priority pathogens isolated in children from a tertiary care hospital in India

The Global Action Plan is one of the key initiatives by the World Health Organization (WHO) to combat the increasing incidence of antimicrobial resistance (AMR). In this direction, WHO has articulated a list of pathogens under the umbrella of ‘priority pathogens’ to provide strategic direction to research and develop new…

The Application of Nanomaterials for the Electrochemical Detection of Antibiotics: A Review

Antibiotics are the entities that help us to fight against the bacterial infections. These antibiotics are being used as therapeutic agents in humans while as therapeutic, prophylactic as well as growth promoters in case of animals. The release of antibiotics in human and animal waste results in the entry of…

Deciphering potential roles of earthworms in mitigation of antibiotic resistance in the soils from diverse ecosystems

Antibiotic resistance (ABR) is ‘one health’ challenge and it needs to be tackled with the one health approach. The injudicious use of antibiotics in human, animal and plant health has increased the abundance of antibiotic, antibiotic-resistant bacteria (ARBs) and antibiotic-resistant genes (ARGs) in the environment. It has been found that…
