This book, which is the translated version of a Swedish book, combines a general introduction of a variety of antibiotics with a more in-depth discussion of resistance. The focus on resistance in learning about antibiotics will help future scientists recognize the problem antibiotics resistance poses for medicinal and drug-related fields, and perhaps trigger more research and discoveries to fight antibiotic resistant strains.

Current overviews of the topic are included, along with specific discussions on the individual mechanisms (betalactams, glycopeptides, aminoglycosides, etc) used in various antibacterial agents and explanations of how resistances to those develop. Methods for counteracting resistance development in bacteria are discussed as well.

From the Back Cover:

An all-encompassing look at different types of antibiotics and the high-priority issue of antibiotic resistance

Important weapons in the arsenal of modern medicine, antibiotics remain the greatest and most effective combatant known for fighting infectious diseases. However, recent factors spurring an increase in resistant bacteria strains pose a serious threat to the efficacy of antibiotic drugs—an alarming prospect for healthcare specialists around the globe.

Separating itself from standard texts in the field that discuss antibiotics solely within the context of bacteriology and infectious diseases, Antibiotics and Antibiotic Resistance singles out antibiotics as a unique group of agents. Both concise and comprehensive, this forward-thinking guide serves as more than just a general reference on different types of antibiotics and their specific medicinal properties. It also includes an in-depth discussion of antibiotic resistance mechanisms to closely examine how they cultivate malicious bacteria that stably resist our therapeutic efforts. In addition, Antibiotics and Antibiotic Resistance:

  • Provides a wide-ranging overview of topics in antibiotics and antibiotics resistance

  • Describes molecular mechanisms of resistance and newly observed genetic principles for the spread of resistance

  • Enables readers to learn about antibiotics in a way that specifically concentrates on the importance of counteracting resistance

Filled with recent examples of efforts to find new antibacterial agents, Antibiotics and Antibiotic Resistance emerges as a valuable tool for allowing future scientists to recognize the telltale signs of antibiotic-resistant strains, while helping them to invigorate their research in the race to head off a potentially critical health crisis.
