Antimicrobial Strategy for Targeted Elimination of Different Microbes, Including Bacterial, Fungal, and Viral Pathogens

The ongoing emergence of microbial pathogens for which no effective antimicrobials exist endangers global health, necessitating novel antimicrobial approaches. The bacterial pathogen Staphylococcus aureus (SA), particularly methicillin-resistant SA (MRSA), is a well-known multidrug-resistant pathogen. According to recent research, the photo-activated probe caused a structural change in the probe and conjugate…

Antibiotic Residues in Milk: Control Strategies in Dairy Animals

The antibiotic resistance (AR) leads to the development of new resistant bacteria or superbugs, resulting in failure of antibiotic therapy under clinical situations in both humans and animals. AR development particularly in the pathogens has become the greatest threat to antibiotic therapy. Awareness and upgradation of knowledge regarding AR among…

Antibiotic Resistance in the Drinking Water: Old and New Strategies to Remove Antibiotics, Resistant Bacteria, and Resistance Genes

Antibiotic resistance is a significant public health problem. It is a one health issue that requires immediate attention from various stakeholders. Being a one health issue, antibiotic resistance can be seen to be spreading across the human, animal, and environment domains. Drinking water is no exception. Various studies have identified…

Antimicrobial Resistance and One Health in the Post COVID-19 Era: What Should Health Students Learn?

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a critical worldwide health issue that jeopardizes our ability to fight illnesses. The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic has put the world in a shocking state. The pandemic exacerbated the problem of antimicrobial resistance, which was largely caused by irrational off-label use of antivirals, anthelmintics, antimalarials,…

Antimicrobial Resistance in Antarctica: Is It Still A Pristine Environment?

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a global public health threat. Surveillance is one of the critical interventions to tackle the emergence and spared of AMR. Antarctica is one such place where the human settlements are relatively less and acts as a simpler model to study the factors that increases AMR. There…

Antibiotics in the Pipeline: A Literature Review (2017-2020)

Antibiotic resistance (ABR) is causing increased mortality and morbidity and is straining the healthcare system. The rising problem of ABR can be controlled through effective antibiotic stewardship system and by facilitating new drug developments. Several new antibiotics are in the pipeline to fight the ABR pandemic. Most of these antibiotics…

Residual Antimicrobial Agents in Food Originating from Animals

The use of antimicrobials, specifically antibiotics, is not limited to humans, but also common in animals and plants. However, the overuse of these antimicrobial agents has made the situation more worrisome. This means that misuse has led to mutations, gene transfers in microbes making them stronger to survive in the…

Short Review on the Potential Alternatives to Antibiotics in the Era of Antibiotic Resistance

Antibiotics were once considered wonder drugs. They worked fantastically to treat infections and bring down the mortality and morbidity due to bacterial infections. Unfortunately, humans misused these drugs resulting in antibiotic resistance. As a result, antibiotics started to fail. Pharmaceutical companies are showing more interest in funding drugs like anticancer…

The Impact of Antimicrobial Resistance Awareness Interventions Involving Schoolchildren, Development of an Animation and Parents Engagements: A Pilot Study

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a global health challenge, particularly in low- and middle-income countries where antibiotics are widely available to consumers, leading to their misuse. This study aimed to assess the potential of AMR animation and schoolchildren in influencing parents’ AMR knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs. A baseline surveys of parents…

In-vitro Antimicrobial Activity of Lactuca Sativa Leaves against Isolated Clarithromycin-Resistant Superbugs

One of the biggest discoveries in the year 1928 was the development of antibiotics. However as rightly mentioned by the discovery, Alexander Fleming himself, the misuse of antibiotics is making them less effective day by day. Due to mutations, the bacteria are gaining resistance and becoming smart enough to grow…
