Staphylococcus aureus is becoming resistant to antibiotic Methicillin globally. Researchers in Japan explain the mechanism of transfer of resistance among bacteria.
To deepen their understanding of antimicrobial resistance, researchers have developed a robotic system that could evolve bacteria in bulk after exposure to different antibiotics.
Dr. Hsu Li Yang and Sonny Liew, creators of The Antibiotic Tales, share how they made a comic book addressing the growing threat of antimicrobial resistance.
UK scientists report that awareness of drug resistance in Thailand and Laos is similar to that of many industrialized countries, but this does not translate to more stringent antibiotic use.
Contextual information should be collected to identify factors that would influence the effectiveness of interventions such as antibiotic control, researchers say.
An international research group has demonstrated that multi-drug resistant or extensively drug resistant bacteria are becoming a threat to public health in India.
