Antibiotic resistance is now considered to be a great curse to the present world. Researcher suspected that millions of people will die due to the rapid emergence of antibiotic resistance by 2050. There are lots of mechanisms of antibiotic resistance. All the mechanisms of antibiotic resistance can be narrowed into two part; mutation and horizontal gene transfer.. In this context, both type of antibiotic resistance mechanisms will be discussed. The last mechanism belongs to horizontal gene transfer-mediated resistance and most of the other mechanisms of antibiotic resistance are mutation-mediated. …. 10 mechanisms of antibiotic resistance in BacteriaRead More » ...
The term antimicrobial resistance refers to the ability of microorganisms to grow in the presence of an antimicrobial (drug) at a concentration that would normally kill them or inhibit their growth. Antimicrobial resistance has become a big threat to global health; having risen to dangerously high levels in all parts of the World, making it difficult to treat infectious diseases. This is forcing patients to incur extra expenses as they have to buy more expensive second-generation or third-generation medicines. Also, as a result of medicines not being effective, patients are forced to stay longer in hospitals; this translates to higher hospital bills. In an effort to establish the antimicrobial resistance status of bacteria isolated from chickens, a cross-sectional study was conducted to demonstrate the antimicrobial resistance profiles of bacteria isolated from three groups of chickens [sick (clinical), farm and slaughter]. The three chicken groups were studied so as to determine whether there ...

The development of resistance to antibiotics is due to the widespread use of a wide variety of antimicrobials, coupled with the ability of bacteria to acquire and spread resistance and the ability of humans to disseminate them. The possible consequences of antimicrobial resistance leads to greater chances of hospitalization, prolongation of hospital stay and increased mortality. Furthermore, treatment of drug resistant bacteria requires the use of more toxic drugs and more expense for the patient and hospitals. The main objective of the present study was to determine the frequency and nature of antimicrobial resistance of microorganisms in oncologic and hematologic patients at a Mexican Pediatric Hospital. A retrospective, observational, and analytical study was realized, where we reviewed the clinical records of 20 cases. Blood cultures were obtained from the Laboratory of our institution from 2010 to 2011. The data obtained were organized and analyzed. We observed that the E. coli and S. ...

Looking at the 4-hours chart, the pair traded above the 1.1020 resistance level plus the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 1.1163 high to 1.0925 low.. However, the upward move was capped by the 1.1080 and 1.1090 resistance levels. Moreover, the pair is also facing hurdles near the 100 simple moving average (red, 4-hours) and the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 1.1163 high to 1.0925 low.. There is also a crucial bearish trend line forming with resistance near 1.1100 on the same chart. Therefore, the pair needs to climb above the 1.1080 and 1.1100 resistance levels to continue higher.. Conversely, if EUR/USD fails to break the 1.1080 and 1.1100 resistance levels, it could start a fresh decline.

Previous reports have suggested an increasing incidence of highly fluoroquinolone-resistant Escherichia coli causing bacteremia among cancer patients on prophylactic therapy. We used genotyping by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis of chromosomal DNA digests and random amplified polymorphic DNA fingerprinting to study clonal relationships among such isolates obtained at 10 cancer centers located across Europe and the Middle East. Analysis by both methods indicated that isolates from different centers were genotypically unrelated to each other. There were five centers from which more than one individual patient isolate was available, and most demonstrated significant within-center genetic diversity of strains. Strains shared among patients could be identified at two centers. At the center with the largest number of bloodstream isolates from cancer patients available, fluoroquinolone-resistant control isolates from surgical patients and fluoroquinolone-susceptible control isolates from patients ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - High burden of antimicrobial resistance in Asia. AU - Jean, Shio Shin. AU - Hsueh, Po Ren. PY - 2011/4. Y1 - 2011/4. N2 - Antimicrobial resistance is associated with high mortality rates and high medical costs. Marked variations in the resistance profiles of bacterial and fungal pathogens as well as the quality of public hygiene have had a considerable impact on the effectiveness of antimicrobial agents in Asian countries. In Asia, one of the epicentres of antimicrobial drug resistance, there is an alarming number of antibiotic-resistant species, including penicillin- and erythromycin-resistant Streptococcus pneumoniae, ampicillin-resistant Haemophilus influenzae, multidrug-resistant (MDR) Acinetobacter baumannii, extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL)-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae (particularly mediated by CTX-M-9, CTX-M-14 and CTX-M-15), New Delhi metallo-β-lactamase 1 (NDM-1)-producing Enterobacteriaceae, MDR Salmonella enterica serotypes Choleraesuis and Typhi, ...

July 25, 2018,. The Director General, Prof Mojisola Adeyeye is encouraging the fourteen directorates of NAFDAC to interact more with the Nigerian public through awareness and education of food- or drug-related public health issues. Three of the directorates: Drug Evaluation and Research (DER), Veterinary and Allied Products (VMAP) and Registrations and Regulatory Affairs (R&R) have put together this press release on antimicrobial resistance.. As part of its mandate in safeguarding the health of the citizenry, NAFDAC wishes to draw the attention of the general public to Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR), a subject that has become a global concern to both human and animal health. The incidence of AMR leads to treatment failure or infections that cannot be easily treated, death and economic loss. This is a real problem in Nigeria because we tend to not finish antibiotic medication or buy only what can be afforded. In a local hospital in Nigeria, it was reported that many neonates or newborn acquire ...
The emergence of multidrug resistant bacteria world wide is a serious problem, and very few new drugs are under development. The selection of resistant bacteria is affected by factors such as mutation rate, biological fitness cost and the rate of fitness compensation. This thesis is focused on how mutation rate affects resistance to fluoroquinolones and on exploring a dosing strategy that might slow resistance development. In a set of urinary tract Escherichia coli isolates MIC values above the breakpoint for the fluoroquinolones norfloxacin and ciprofloxacin carried at least three resistance-associated mutations. In these isolates the number of resistance mutations correlated with the mutation rate. During step-wise selection for decreased susceptibility to fluoroquinolones, the accumulation of mutations in E. coli was associated with an increasing biological cost both in vitro and in vivo. However, in some lineages an additional selection step for resistance was associated with a partial ...
Antimicrobial resistance is increasing in nearly all health-care-associated pathogens. We examined changes in resistance prevalence during 1996-1999 in 23 hospitals by using two statistical methods. When the traditional chi-square test of pooled mean resistance prevalence was used, most organisms appear to have increased in prevalence. However, when a more conservative test that accounts for changes within individual hospitals was used, significant increases in prevalence of resistance were consistently observed only for oxacillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, ciprofloxacin-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and ciprofloxacin- or ofloxacin-resistant Escherichia coli. These increases were significant only in isolates from patients outside intensive-care units (ICU). The increases seen are of concern; differences in factors present outside ICUs, such as excessive quinolone use or inadequate infection-control practices, may explain the observed trends ...
Resistance against antibiotics, such as penicillin and cephalosporins, are haunting many hospitals and clinical practices. In a recent paper in the Journal of the American Chemical Society, researchers reported that they made laboratory versions of the ancient ancestors of the enzymes that lead to antibiotic resistance. By studying the ancient forefathers of these enzymes, researchers hope to understand how modern antibiotic resistance evolved and figure out new ways to deal with it. "Antibiotic-resistant organisms cause thousands of human deaths every year. Anything new we can learn about antibiotic resistance may be potentially useful in coping with this problem," says Jose Sanchez-Ruiz at the University of Granada in Spain, one of the studys coauthors.. Antibiotic resistance isnt a modern phenomenon that only arose in the face of clinical antibiotic use in the past 60 years. Bacteria have been toting around enzymes to disarm antibiotics for millenia. Indeed, genes for antibiotic resistance ...
Given the significant spatial and temporal heterogeneity in antimicrobial resistance distribution and the factors that affect its evolution, dissemination and persistence, it is important to highlight that antimicrobial resistance must be viewed as an ecological problem. Monitoring the resistance prevalence of indicator bacteria such as Escherichia coli and enterococci in wild animals makes it possible to show that wildlife has the potential to serve as an environmental reservoir and melting pot of bacterial resistance. These researchers address the issue of antimicrobial-resistant microorganism proliferation in the environment and the related potential human health and environmental impact.
Edited by: Professor Steven Opal. The progressive loss of antibiotic activity as a result of dissemination of antibacterial resistance genes is increasingly recognized as global threat to humankind. Critical Care is therefore introducing a series of papers that examine the problem of progressive antibiotic resistance in the ICU. These articles will focus on the mechanisms of resistance, spread of antibiotic resistance genes, efforts to limit the further spread of MDR pathogens, and novel current and future therapeutic approaches to respond to the challenge of antibiotic resistance. We hope that this thematic series will inform the clinician about steps that we can take to confront the threat of antibiotic resistance.. This series of articles has not been sponsored. All articles have undergone the journals standard peer review process overseen by the Series Editor, with final decisions made by the Editor in Chief.

Antimicrobial resistance has become an imminent concern for public health. As methods for detection and characterization of antimicrobial resistance move from targeted culture and polymerase chain reaction to high throughput metagenomics, appropriate resources for the analysis of large-scale data are required. Currently, antimicrobial resistance databases are tailored to smaller-scale, functional profiling of genes using highly descriptive annotations. Such characteristics do not facilitate the analysis of large-scale, ecological sequence datasets such as those produced with the use of metagenomics for surveillance. In order to overcome these limitations, we present MEGARes (https://megares.meglab.org), a hand-curated antimicrobial resistance database and annotation structure that provides a foundation for the development of high throughput acyclical classifiers and hierarchical statistical analysis of big data. MEGARes can be browsed as a stand-alone resource through the website or can be ...
Antimicrobial resistance is an important problem that requires an urgent response from the scientific community [1]. One of the main goals is to develop new molecules and antibiotics able to cover extended and pan-resistant strains. However, strategies are also needed to prevent the development of new resistant strains. The concept of antibiotic stewardship addresses this situation by seeking to increase appropriate antibiotic coverage and to reduce the unnecessary use of antibiotics [2, 3].. Early, appropriate empirical treatment is associated with better survival [4]. Furthermore, if the initial antibiotic treatment is subsequently modified in the light of the culture results, the patients outcome does not seem to be affected [5]. Many strategies for improving adequate empirical treatment coverage and for limiting the use of empirical broad-spectrum antibiotics have been developed, such as the use of risk factors or scores to identify patients who are particularly vulnerable to ...
In this study, we demonstrated through WGS that MSM transmit their antibiotic-resistant strains of N. gonorrhoeae directly to their partners. The resistance-determining genes/mutations were identical in MSM partners for 33/34 couples, suggesting transmission of the genetic determinants of antibiotic resistance between sexual partners is a key driver behind the spread of antibiotic-resistant gonorrhoea among MSM, who are a major risk group for gonorrhoea. To our knowledge, our study is the first to provide detailed genomic evidence for direct transmission of the genetic determinants for N. gonorrhoeae resistance between men across multiple antibiotic classes at a person-to-person level.. The increasing spread of antimicrobial resistance in N. gonorrhoeae has markedly limited empirical treatment options.1 Genomic epidemiology studies have previously found resistance mutations arising independently in several lineages, with subsequent dissemination.5 6 8 15 16 In each of these studies, highly ...

In fall 2017, WHO released a report about a global shortage of antibiotics. This crisis has emerged simultaneously with a global rise in antibiotic resistance. Antibiotic resistance is a growing public health threat. Much of this antibiotic resistance is human-made. Shortages of antibiotics led to superbugs and are often caused by the overprescribing antibiotics, improperly taking prescribed antibiotics, and consuming substandard medicines as well as the extensive use of antibiotics in agriculture.. The over-prescription of drugs, improper consumption, parallel drug markets, and rampant antibiotic use all drive the growing global threat posed by antibiotic resistance. These factors are interrelated in different ways. For example, underdeveloped diagnostic facilities combined with overzealous prescription of antibiotics have led to increasing empirical treatment of infections. Responding to pressure from patients, doctors sometimes prescribe antibiotics for viral conditions despite their ...
Microbial antibiotic resistance is an emerging environmental pollution problem with deleterious effects on water supplies and human health. Currently, little is known about the role of environmental factors in the maintenance, propagation and attenuation of antibiotic resistance. This study investigated the effects of antibiotic exposure concentrations, nutrient availability, and microbial growth rate on resistance dynamics, as well as, the porous medium transport characteristics of antibiotic resistance vectors. Exposure to high antibiotic concentrations increased, (1) the percentage of resistant bacterial strains in soil, (2) the persistence of resistant strains in soil and (3) the relative abundance of resistance genes in bacteria; and decreased the Shannon Weaver diversity index. Rich growth medium enhanced resistance plasmid maintenance and stability even in the absence of selective pressure of the antibiotic possibly be alleviating the metabolic burden imparted on the carrier bacteria by ...
Previous reports on pediatric HAIs are sparse, with many studies restricted to a few hospitals or a limited time period. 14 - 16 While many studies provide data on HAI incidence among pediatric patients, few focus on pathogens and antimicrobial resistance profiles.

The European Commission has tabled a comprehensive Action Plan on Antimicrobial resistance which unveils12 concrete actions to be implemented.
Drug resistance is the reduction in effectiveness of a medication such as an antimicrobial or an antineoplastic in curing a disease or condition. The term is used in the context of resistance that pathogens or cancers have "acquired", that is, resistance has evolved. Antimicrobial resistance and antineoplastic resistance challenge clinical care and drive research. When an organism is resistant to more than one drug, it is said to be multidrug-resistant. Even the immune system of an organism is in essence a drug delivery system, albeit endogenous, and faces the same arms race problems as external drug delivery. The development of antibiotic resistance in particular stems from the drugs targeting only specific bacterial molecules (almost always proteins). Because the drug is so specific, any mutation in these molecules will interfere with or negate its destructive effect, resulting in antibiotic resistance. Furthermore there is mounting concern over the abuse of antibiotics in the farming of ...
Increasing bacterial resistance to antibiotics is a critical problem worldwide, with many health organisations making the issue a priority for future development and research.

Antibiotic resistant at Plymouth University Peninsula Schools of Medicine and Dentistry. Internationally recognised for development of novel antibiotics and investigation of uropathogenic E coli
by Vetscite. The combination and sequence of antibiotics can promote or hinder the development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.. It is estimated that each year in the United States 2 million people become infected with bacteria that are resistant to one or more types of antibiotics, and at least 23,000 people will die because of these infections. This problem is being exacerbated by overuse of antibiotics for livestock and also in community clinical practice. This overuse, combined with the slow pace of novel drug discovery is a growing threat to public health. In response to this, Moffitt Cancer Center researchers have developed a novel mathematical method inspired by Darwinian evolution to use current antibiotics to eliminate or reduce the development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.. According to the Centers for Disease Control, one of the core actions that can be taken to fight antibiotic-resistant infections is to improve the use of antibiotics that currently exist. One approach to ...
We all know that the introduction of antibiotics as drugs in the treatment of bacterial infections in the post-WWII years was a revolutionized medicine, and dramatically improved the health condition on a global scale. 60 years later now, the growing antibiotic resistance among pathogens has heavily depleted the arsenal of entailed effective antibiotic drugs and especially in the case of TB, combination of 4 drugs is being used and dont know what happens ?. Now thanx to Prof. Måns Ehrenberg for his novel discovery i.e., inhibiting the "drug efflux pumps" in bacteria, which function as their defence mechanisms against antibiotics, can mask the effect of mutations that have led to resistance in the form of low-affinity drug binding to target molecules in the cell. This is shown by researchers at Uppsala University in a new study that can provide clues to how the development of resistance to antibiotics in bacteria can be delayed ...
If we use antibiotics to treat infection we cannot avoid encouraging the growth of bacteria that are able to resist the effects of the antibiotics. Some bacteria, often called "superbugs", have been particularly successful in hospitals and other places where a lot of antibiotics are used. Apart from good hygiene, can we do something more clever to prevent antibiotic resistance from taking over in bacterial populations?. Lucinda Halls research interests centre on the evolution of bacterial pathogens, particularly in relation to antibiotic resistance. Early development of molecular typing methods and the determination of antibiotic resistance mechanisms led to an interest in bacterial population structures and the factors that drive the acquisition, spread, and maintenance of resistance. Following the demonstration that resistance to sulphonamides in Escherichia coli is maintained despite minimal recent use in medicine, one interest is in the factors that underlie this persistence of resistance. ...
Antibiotic rotation has been previously studied with varied results. The theory behind antibiotic rotation is that intermittently changing antibiotic classes will reduce the ecological selective pressure that drives the emergence of antibiotic resistance.. This study compares the effect of 2 types of antibiotic rotation on Gram-negative colonisation in the ICU and also compares both interventions with standard care.. The two interventions apply to the empiric treatment and are: 1) fast rotation, i.e. every other patient another class and 2) slow rotation, i.e. every other 1.5month another preferred class for empiric Gram-negative antibiotic therapy. ...

The question on the minds of thousands of scientists minds across the world revolves around what the possible cause could be that continues to trigger the enormous spike in UTIs. The answer remains highly controversial. On the one hand, some researches argue that a strong link persists between the meat we consume and the bacteria we then acquire. These researchers highlight the "close genetic matches between resistant E.coli from human patients and resistant strains found on chicken or turkey sold in supermarkets," in order to make the argument that resistance could be spreading with every bite from our chicken dinners. While on the other hand, other researchers dont agree as antibiotic resistance remains extremely common in our society therefore, "it isnt surprising that genes carried by human E.coli are going to be similar to resistance genes in chicken E.coli." However, after taking both arguments into account, I believe that a strong link exists between the antibiotic treated meat we ...
Perhaps the best way to avoid the confusion about antibiotics is to not bring up the word in the first place. Just call it, Antibacterial Awareness Week and use "antibacterial" in place of "antibiotic" in all instances. An example of this approach is demonstrated by the Antibacterial Resistance Leadership Group - by choosing "antibacterial" the group instantly avoids all confusion about the focus of their group. I.e., if they had used Antibiotic Resistance Leadership Group, instead, people would likely assume the group was interested in all types of antimicrobial resistance.. For the same reason, physicians should opt for the word, "antibacterial" when discussing medications with patients. E.g., I suggest saying "You have a cold (a virus) so I dont think you should take antibacterials" instead of "You have a cold (a virus) so I dont think you should take antibiotics." The latter sentence leaves open the hope (in the mind of a typical patient) that antibiotics might also treat some viral ...

Antibiotic Resistance Without Fitness Cost. - posted in Creation vs Evolution: In the majority of studies performed, resistance caused bytarget alterations has been found to engender some cost tofitness (Table 1), but mutants with no measurable costshave also been observed. One example of a ‘no cost’ resistancemutation is the 42nd codon AAA (Lys)®AGA (Arg)substitution of the rpsL gene, responsible for resistance tohigh concentrations of streptomycin in S. typhimurium andoth...
The presence of antimicrobial resistance genes in 1000-year-old Incan remains suggest resistance was common hundreds of years before we discovered penicillin

Existing diagnostics is primarily based on cell culture and microscopy, which takes several days to arrive at a result. Current clinical practice is largely based on empirical prescriptions of antibiotics, which is often inappropriate or broad-spectrum. This has led to the alarming global threat of antimicrobial resistance (AMR), which means existing drugs will soon be ineffective even for common illnesses.. This project aims to develop a rapid diagnostic test platform that can detect the causal pathogens for diarrhoea directly from the sample. A novel acoustic technique will be combined with a polymer based receptor for enhanced robustness for use in tropical resource-limited countries, which see the largest prevalence of infectious diseases. This portable and entirely electronic test platform will potentially allow timely and appropriate first line of treatment and limit AMR.. For more information about the study, please contact Dr Sourav Ghosh, Centre for Biological Engineering, Innovative ...
How antibiotic resistance develops. Antimicrobial drugs treat diseases caused by bacteria and fungi. Mutations lead to resistant strains. Antibiotic abuse increases resistant bacteria.
Established in May 2016, The AMR Centre is a key part of the UKs response to the global threat from Antimicrobial Resistance. Based at Alderley Park, The AMR Centre is a joint private-public initiative to support/accelerate the development of new antibiotics and diagnostics through a fully integrated development capability, offering translational R&D from pre-clinical hits through to clinical proof of concept.. ...
Antibiotic resistance is a worldwide public health problem (Bush et al. in Nat Rev Microbiol 9:894-896, 2011). The lack of effective therapies against resistant bacteria globally leads to prolonged...

BACKGROUND: The project entitled Surveillance of Antibiotic Use and Resistance in Intensive Care Units (SARI) was initiated in Germany in 2000. In this article, we describe developments in antibiotic use and resistance rates in the participating intensive care units over the years 2001-2015. METHODS: The intensive care units supplied monthly figures on patient days, antibiotic use (in defined daily doses, DDD), and resistance data for 13 pathogens. The density of antibiotic use per 1000 patient days was calculated on the basis of antibiotic use, DDD, and patient days, and the resistance density per 1000 patient days was calculated from the number of resistant pathogens ...

Antibiotic resistance in children with urinary infections is high and could render some antibiotics ineffective as first-line treatments, warns a study published by The BMJ.
Preventing antimicrobial resistance requires a complex of methods. It is a major problem that has to be solved as soon as possible. One of the best things that people can do is to prevent the occurrence of infections so that the use of antimicrobial medications could be avoided. It is extremely important to diagnose infections correctly using the special tests or other methods so that they use of any antimicrobial drugs could be based on facts. This can prevent overuse of the agents significantly. It is important to support the awareness of people about the problem so that every person could contribute to solving this problem. Antimicrobial resistance requires drawing attention from governments and different specializing organizations. ...

Antibiotics are antimicrobial drugs that are produced naturally by microorganisms. The synthesis of antibiotics by microbes and the resistance of microbes to antibiotics are two sides of the same...
Our aim was to assess a possible association between antibiotic resistance and decreased susceptibility to antiseptics or disinfectants, because published papers are contradictory.
Antibiotic resistance is one thing - but new research says its not the only worry when it comes to popping pills. Antibiotics were invented for a reason. Since the introduction of penicillin in the 1940s and the subsequent development of other antibiotics, illness and death from infectious diseases have dropped dramatically. But with widespread use as…
You may have heard that, thanks to widespread and often-sloppy antibiotic usage, some strains of bacteria are becoming horrifyingly resistant to antibiotics. Well I have both good news and bad news: fecal transplants may be the gross cure for antibio
