Antimicrobials, Resistance and Chemotherapy

 

An antimicrobial is an agent that will kill microorganisms or will inhibit their growth. Agents that will kill microbes are called microbicidal, while those that normally inhibit their growth are called biostatic. Antimicrobial medicines can be organized according to the microorganisms they act against. For example, antibiotics are used against bacteria and antifungals are used against fungi. Actually they can also be classified according to their function. 

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is when a microbe improves to become more or fully resistant to antimicrobials which previously could treat it. This broader term also covers antibiotic resistance, which applies to bacteria and antibiotics.

Chemotherapy (also called chemo) is a type of cancer treatment that uses drugs to destroy cancer cells. Antimicrobial chemotherapy is the clinical application of antimicrobial agents to treat infectious disease
