ABSTRACT Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) became in the last two decades a global threat to public health systems in the world. Since the antibiotic era, with the discovery of the first antibiotics that provided consistent health benefits to human medicine, the misuse and abuse of antimicrobials in veterinary and human medicine have accelerated the growing worldwide phenomenon of AMR. This article presents an extensive overview of the epidemiology of AMR, with a focus on the link between food… 
Surveillance and Environmental Risk Assessment of Antibiotics and AMR/ARGs Related with MRSA: One Health Perspective
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), infections with antimicrobial resistant bacteria result in an estimated number of 700,000 human deaths globally per year. In the 2016 United Nations
Antimicrobial Resistance Threats in the emerging COVID-19 pandemic: Where do we stand?
TLDR
This review aims to discuss the rising concerns of the too much use of antibiotics in COVID-19 patients highlighting the role of bacterial coinfections in these patients.
Assessing the impact of heat treatment on antimicrobial resistant (AMR) genes and their potential uptake by other ‘live’ bacteria
TLDR
There is uncertainty around whether cooking food is sufficient to denature AMR genes and mobile genetic elements from these ‘dead” bacteria to prevent uptake by ‘live’ bacteria in the human gut and other food environments - therefore potentially contributing to the overall transmission of AMR to humans.
Microbial Resistance Movements: An Overview of Global Public Health Threats Posed by Antimicrobial Resistance, and How Best to Counter
TLDR
Suggestions on how to address this public health threat are suggested, including recommendations on training medical students about antibiotics, and strategies to overcome the problems of irrational antibiotic prescribing and AMR are concluded.
Antimicrobial resistance: A challenge awaiting the post-COVID-19 era
TLDR
The key findings of studies on the current state of antimicrobial resistance development are summarized, from the perspective of current disinfectant use.
The Strategies of Pathogen-Oriented Therapy on Circumventing Antimicrobial Resistance
TLDR
This review exemplifies recent trends in the development of POTs for circumventing AMR, including the adoption of antibiotic-antibiotic conjugates, antimicrobial peptides, therapeutic monoclonal antibodies, nanotechnologies, CRISPR-Cas systems, and microbiota modulations.
Whole-genome sequencing as part of national and international surveillance programmes for antimicrobial resistance: a roadmap
  • Celia Marietta Polle K. Agnettah M. June Melissa Ana Elm Carlos Lagrada Macaranas Olorosa Gayeta Masim Herr

  • 2020
TLDR
A roadmap for incorporating whole-genome sequencing into existing AMR surveillance frameworks, including WHO Global Antimicrobial Resistance Surveillance System is described, informed by ongoing, practical experiences developing WGS surveillance systems in national reference laboratories in Colombia, India, Nigeria and the Philippines.
Bacteriophages and the One Health Approach to Combat Multidrug Resistance: Is This the Way?
TLDR
Clinical studies are warranted to assess the in vivo pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamic characteristics of phages to fully establish their therapeutic potential, as there is a dire need to establish novel methods of treatment under this One Health Framework.
Antibiotic resistance in Salmonella spp. isolated from poultry: A global overview
TLDR
Findings highlight the need for government entities, poultry researchers, and producers to find ways to reduce the impact of antibiotic use in poultry, focusing especially on active surveillance and finding alternatives to antibiotics.
Genomic Characterization of Antimicrobial Resistance in Food Chain and Livestock-Associated Salmonella Species
TLDR
This study summarizes the genomic characterization of antimicrobial resistance in Salmonella species with special focus on resistance against carbapenems and colistin which are the last resort antibiotics used against infections caused by multidrug resistant bacteria.

Nontherapeutic Use of Antimicrobial Agents in Animal Agriculture: Implications for Pediatrics
TLDR
How antimicrobial agents are used in animal agriculture is described, the mechanisms of how such use contributes to development of resistance are reviewed, and US and global initiatives to curb the use of antimicrobial agent in agriculture are discussed.
Antimicrobial resistance: a global view from the 2013 World Healthcare-Associated Infections Forum
TLDR
The general public must continue to be made aware of the current scale of AMR’s threat, and must perceive antimicrobials as they are: a non-renewable and endangered resource.
Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria: A Challenge for the Food Industry
TLDR
The main trends in antibiotic resistance and antibiotic development in recent decades, as well as their economic and health consequences, current knowledge concerning the generation, dissemination, and mechanisms of antibacterial resistance, and progress to date on the possible routes for emergence of resistance throughout the food chain are presented.
Lack of development of new antimicrobial drugs: a potential serious threat to public health.
TLDR
Academia should concentrate on technologies to unlock new drug targets, industry on drug candidates, and regulators and pharmaceutical companies should agree on new clinical-trial designs so that information on therapeutic efficacy is generated in fewer patients.
Food Animals and Antimicrobials: Impacts on Human Health
TLDR
The substantial and expanding volume of evidence reporting animal-to-human spread of resistant bacteria, including that arising from use of NTAs, supports eliminating NTA use in order to reduce the growing environmental load of resistance genes.
Human health consequences of use of antimicrobial agents in aquaculture.
TLDR
Considering the rapid growth and importance of aquaculture industry in many regions of the world and the widespread, intensive, and often unregulated use of antimicrobial agents in this area of animal production, efforts are needed to prevent development and spread of antimacterial resistance in Aquaculture to reduce the risk to human health.
Global trends in antimicrobial use in food animals
TLDR
The first global map (228 countries) of antibiotic consumption in livestock is presented and it is projected that antimicrobial consumption will rise by 67% by 2030, and nearly double in Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa.
Epidemiology of resistance to antibiotics. Links between animals and humans.
TLDR
Since the EU ban of avoparcin, a significant decrease has been observed in several European countries in the prevalence of vancomycin resistant enterococci in meat (products), in faecal samples of food animals and healthy humans, which underlines the role of antimicrobial usage in food animals in the selection of bacterial resistance and the transport of these resistances via the food chain to humans.

TLDR
The continued evolution of antimicrobial resistance in the hospital and more recently in the community threatens to seriously compromise the ability to treat serious infections and the lack of a robust pipeline of new agents, particularly against resistant Gram-negative bacteria, emphasizes the importance of optimizing the use of current antimicrobials.
