  • Pathogenic
  • Without alternative strategies, the acquisition of drug resistance by pathogenic microorganisms looms as possibly one of the most significant public health threats facing humanity in the 21st century. (wikipedia.org)
  • To make matters worse, these same selective pressures act independently of a given microbe's resistance status for other antimicrobials, so a pathogenic microbe already resistant to one medicine can just as easily acquire resistance to others through these same processes. (genengnews.com)
  • inhibit
  • The ability of antimicrobials to inhibit biofilm growth indicates that they are able to diffuse through the biofilm and act normally against their targets. (asm.org)
  • ciprofloxacin
  • Rates of ciprofloxacin resistance and penicillinase-producing N. gonorrhoeae were lower when molecular methods were used. (cdc.gov)
  • Ciprofloxacin, doxycycline, and penicillin G are currently recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration as therapeutics for inhalation and cutaneous anthrax ( 16 ). (asm.org)
