Antibiotic resistance

Antibiotic resistance

Antibiotic resistance refers specifically to the resistance to antibiotics that occurs in common bacteria that cause infections. The evolution of resistant strains is a natural phenomenon that occurs when microorganisms replicate themselves erroneously or when resistant traits are exchanged between them. The use and misuse of antimicrobial drugs accelerates the emergence of drug-resistant strains. Poor infection control practices, inadequate sanitary conditions and inappropriate food-handling encourage the further spread of antimicrobial resistance.
