Antimicrobial resistance, antimicrobial peptides and drug repurposing

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskrift/Konferencebidrag i tidsskrift /Bidrag til avisTidsskriftartikelFormidling

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) defines the ability of a microbe
to resist a medicine, which once could be effectively treated
using the drug. This situation is emerging as a major problem
in health care globally. A closer look at the recent literature,
in particular with a clinical microbiology perspective in mind,
quickly points to AMR as multifaceted in origins, and hence, not
a single problem. This has consequence for how to approach
the treatment of infections and especially how and when to
focus on new drug therapies.
