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…

Antimicrobial Activity of Bacillus Sp. Isolated Strains of Wild Honey

Honey has been used in ancient medicine as a beneficial aliment. It has a wonderful effect on wound healing, bedsore, and ulcer treatment. Recently, the spread of multidrug-resistant bacteria has posed a threat to human health, likely resulting in the extinction of human generations. Natural products of bacteria are the…

A Synthetic Lipopeptide Targeting Top-Priority Multidrug-Resistant Gram-Negative Pathogens

Antimicrobial resistance is a major global health issue that requires immediate attention. Notably, multidrug-resistant (MDR) Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Acinetobacter baumannii, and Enterobacterales (e.g., Klebsiella pneumoniae) are major causes of morbidity and mortality. The World Health Organization (WHO) has identified these pathogens' carbapenem-resistant isolates as the top three priority pathogens for antibiotic…

Isolation and Characterization of Multidrug Resistance Bacteria from Hospital Sewage Samples, Maharashtra, India

Antibiotics are known as life saver drugs that can act against bacteria. However the increasing problem of antibiotic resistance (ABR) has raised an alarm and has even attracted the attention of the World Health Organization (WHO). As per the guidelines from WHO, many countries including India framed the National Action…

New Antibiotics for Multidrug-Resistant Bacterial Strains: Latest Research Developments and Future Perspectives

Antibiotics are crown to the modern medicine, and they are the weapon against numerous infectious diseases. The exposure of bacteria to ‘non-lethal levels’ of antibiotics is causing antibiotic resistance (ABR) in them. Multidrug resistance (MDR) is the most common type of resistance. The MDR refers to bacteria showing resistance to…

Synthetic Antibacterial Minerals: Harnessing a Natural Geochemical Reaction to Combat Antibiotic Resistance

The misuse and overuse of antibiotics in livestock and clinical settings is increasing the natural selection of multidrug-resistant bacteria. The resultant is antibiotic resistance bacteria along with the rise in mortality and financial burden on livestock and the healthcare industry. Hence, there is a need for novel strategies to deal…
