Drug Resistance

Drug resistance or antimicrobial resistance is a phenomenon where microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi, viruses, and parasites change and develop resistance towards treatment by antimicrobial drugs rendering it ineffective hence infection persists in the body increasing the risk. Drug resistance occurs naturally over time by frequent misuse or overuse of antimicrobial drugs via genetic changes. Advancements in molecular and biochemical techniques have given an insight into antibiotic resistance genes and mechanisms such as mutation and gene transfer through which bacteria develop resistance. Antibiotic resistance is a major menace in modern-day therapeutics. Inorder to reduce the drug-induced resistance in bacteria many antibiotic replacement therapies are put to use, such as phage therapy, use of bacteriocin, predatory bacteria and by competitive exclusion.
