Multidrug Resistance (MDR): A Widespread Phenomenon in Pharmacological Therapies

In this paper, multidrug resistance and antimicrobial resistance are underlined, focusing on the therapeutic options to overcome these obstacles in drug treatments, and some recent studies on nanodrug delivery systems have been reviewed.

Biological investigation of N-methyl thiosemicarbazones as antimicrobial agents and bacterial carbonic anhydrases inhibitors

Inspired by their multifaceted activity, the antibacterial, antifungal, and antidermatophytal profiles of derivatives 1–9 are investigated, highlighting a new promising research line.

Multidrug-Resistant Biofilms (MDR): Main Mechanisms of Tolerance and Resistance in the Food Supply Chain

Quorum sensing (QS) and horizontal gene transfer (HGT) are mechanisms that significantly contribute to the recalcitrance (resistance and tolerance) of biofilms, making them more robust and resistant to conventional sanitation methods.

Antibiotic Heteroresistance in Klebsiella pneumoniae

Recent findings provide strong evidence that heteroresistance may be associated with an increased risk of recurrent infections and antibiotic treatment failure, and potential therapeutic strategies against antibiotic heteroresistant isolates are focused on.

Blood culture utilization and epidemiology of antimicrobial-resistant bloodstream infections before and during the COVID-19 pandemic in the Indonesian national referral hospital

Investigation of epidemiology of AMR bloodstream infections before and during the COVID-19 pandemic in the Indonesian national referral hospital found that AMR-BSI incidence and etiology were similar between CO VID-19 and non-COVID- 19 cases, and was not associated with COvid-19.

How Universal Health Coverage can curb the escalating antimicrobial resistance in Pakistan: a call to action for the country's healthcare system

Commentary explores in depth the current UHC system in Pakistan and how UHC could be the answer to Pakistan’s AMR crisis.

Biological Dark Matter Exploration using Data Mining for the Discovery of Antimicrobial Natural Products.

This review analyzes the state-of-the-art for data mining in the fields of bacteria, fungi, and plant genomic data, as well as metabologenomics and summarizes some of the most recent research accomplishments in the field.

An ongoing outbreak of infection and colonization with metallo-/-lactamase-producing gram-negative organisms that are not susceptible to almost all widely used antibiotics is described, providing an important signal that the authors need to rapidly attune their surveillance, clinical microbiology, and infection-control pro-control.

Antimicrobial resistance: A global emerging threat to public health systems

An extensive overview of the epidemiology of AMR is presented, with a focus on the link between food producing-animals and humans and on the legal framework and policies currently implemented at the EU level and globally.

Non-antibiotic pharmaceuticals enhance the transmission of exogenous antibiotic resistance genes through bacterial transformation

It is reported that some commonly consumed non-antibiotic pharmaceuticals, at clinically and environmentally relevant concentrations, significantly facilitated the spread of antibiotic resistance through the uptake of exogenous ARGs.

In vitro efficacy of a copper iodine complex PPE disinfectant for SARS-CoV-2 inactivation.

Clyraguard may be an effective tool for mitigating cross-contamination of non-critical PPE that may come into contact with SARS-CoV-2, according to results.

Emergence and dissemination of antibiotic resistance: a global problem.

The significance of surveillance to define appropriate use of antibiotics in the clinic has been included as an important preventive measure and the impact of globalisation on the transmission of antibiotic resistance genes in bacteria through immigration and export/import of foodstuff is discussed.

The impact of triclosan on the spread of antibiotic resistance in the environment

The objective of this review is to assess the state of knowledge regarding the impact of TCS on multidrug resistance in environmental settings, including engineered environments such as anaerobic digesters.

[Healthcare-associated infections and antibiotic resistance: a global challenge for the 21st century].

In Italy, there are wide regional variations in antibiotic consumption and in the incidence of infections by multiresistant germs, which suggests the need to not only limit consumption of antibiotics but also to improve their appropriate use.
