Antibiotic Resistance, 1st Edition (N50004)

Antibiotic Resistance: Mechanisms and New Antimicrobial Approaches discusses knowledge in mechanisms of antibiotic resistance and all recent advances in fighting microbial resistance such as the applications of nanotechnology, plant products, bacteriophages, marine products, algae, insect-derived products, and other alternative methods that can be applied to fight bacterial infections.

Understanding fundamental mechanisms of antibiotic resistance is a key step in the discovery of effective methods to cope with resistance. This book also discusses methods used to fight antibiotic-resistant infection based on a deep understanding of the mechanisms involved in the development of the resistance.

Exploring methods for coping with antibiotic resistance based on understanding resistance mechanisms in different types of bacteria, Antibiotic Resistance: Mechanisms and New Antimicrobial Approaches covers nanotechnology applications, plant-, marine- and insect-derived products, bacteriophages, and other alternative methods for fighting bacterial infections.
