Antimicrobial Resistance

Antimicrobial resistance occurs when microorganisms (such as bacteria, fungi, viruses, and parasites) transform when they are exposed to antimicrobial drugs (such as antibiotics, antifungals, antivirals, antimalarial, and anthelmintic). Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is, once a microbe evolves to become additional or immune to antimicrobials that antecedent may treat it. Microorganisms that develop antimicrobial resistance are sometimes referred to as “superbugs”. Resistance can appear spontaneously because of random mutations; or additional usually following gradual build up over time, and since of misuse of antibiotics or antimicrobials. Resistant microbes are progressively tough to treat, requiring alternative medications or higher doses—which could also be more expensive or more toxic. Microbes resistant to multiple antimicrobials are known as multidrug resistant (MDR); or generally superbugs. Antimicrobial resistance is on the increase with various deaths each year. A few infections are now completely untreatable due to resistance.
