    1242 Words  | 5 Pages

    INTRODUCTION Antibiotic as is any chemical or drug that can be used to effectively either halt the growth of, destroy toxins from or destroy the entire organism. They are said to be narrow or wide/extended in their range of activity depending on if they act on a limited number of organisms or a vast number of organisms respectively. Antibiotics resistance occurs when a microbe or a group of microbes develop a mechanism to reduce the potency or efficacy of a drug which was once effective as its treatment

  • Resistance And Antibiotics: The Benefit Of Antibiotic Resistance

    1177 Words  | 5 Pages

    Antibiotic resistance is precisely what it sounds like: the resistance towards some antibiotics bacteria may develop. This can lead to antibiotics being rendered useless while a person tries to fend off a disease. Over the years, this dilemma has only intensified as numerous bacteria have become resistant to countless antibiotics. Therefore, researchers and scientists alike have endeavored in figuring out not only the main culprit of antibiotic resistance, but also the multiple techniques to minimize

    1405 Words  | 6 Pages

    Antibiotic medications have saved many people’s lives. Unfortunately antibiotics are no longer as effective in stopping pathogenic bacteria infection. Currently there is an antibiotic resistance crisis since may bacteria have become or are becoming resistant to all of the antibiotics developed. Instead of researching new antibiotics, which will continue to promote antibiotic resistance, antibiotic stewardship should be promoted specifically dealing with preventing infections, monitoring antibiotic

    The development of resistance to all kinds of antibiotics in the sensitive bacterial pathogens is a major challenge to infectious disease medicine. The astonishing effects of antibiotics and origin of the genes associated with resistance has been a long mystery. There is growing evidence that the genes that make up this environmental resistome have the potential to be transformed to pathogens and indeed there is some evidence that clinically relevant resistance genes have originated in environmental

    Antibiotics are medicines that have been the front-runners in combatting bacterial diseases for more than 70 years and have contributed to an increase in life expectancy of world populations (CDC, 2012). Antibiotic resistance is the phenomenon caused by the misuse and overuse of antibiotics that leads to bacterial strains eventually becoming irresponsive as a result of modification of pre-existing genes of the persisting resistant bacteria. Infectious bacterial diseases caused by MDR (Multi-drug

  • Essay On Antibiotic Resistance

    1571 Words  | 7 Pages

    Antibiotic Resistance of Bacteria Introduction Until recently, Antibiotics are medicines used to avoid and give bacterial infections. Antibiotic resistance happens when bacteria alteration in comeback to the use of these medicines. Bacteria, not humans or animals, become antibiotic-resistant. Bacteria could infect humans and animals, and the infections they purpose are harder to treat than those caused by non-resistant bacteria. Antibiotic resistance leads to greater medical costs, long hospital

    TO INHIBIT ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANT Pseudomonas aeruginosa Chapter 1 Introduction 1.1 Antibiotics and Resistance One of the greatest blessings of mankind is the discovery of antibiotics against various pathogenic bacteria. However important side effects of the use of antibiotics are the development of resistance by the targeted pathogens. The irrational use of antibiotics has led to the rapid development of antibiotic resistance in pathogens. The discovery and clinical use of many antibiotics has been

  • Antibiotic Resistance In The Environment

    751 Words  | 4 Pages

    Antibiotics are widely used throughout the world for agricultural, industrial, and medical purposes. The primary concern for the use of microbes is its growing resistance to common antibiotics released within the environment. Antibiotic resistant genes (ARG) have been prevalent in aquatic environments such as the public drinking water treatment system, source water, and tap water and multiple researchers have conducted tests to observe the effectiveness of the water treatment plants in the removal

  • Resistance Reflection: Vaccines And Antibiotics

    Anastashia Edwards Resistance Reflection Vaccines and antibiotics have made many infectious diseases a thing of the past; we 've come to expect that public health and modern science can conquer all microbes. But nature is a formidable adversary. (Tom Frieden) Resistance was a documentary made in 2015 that was made as a warning to deter people from overplaying the use of antibiotics. Our excessive use of antibiotics as a precautionary measure has lead to resistance in new strains of bacteria

    In addition, phages can also overcome host resistance mutations. However, they can be eliminated by the body's defense mechanisms. Phage therapy has been used as an alternative to antibiotics. The use of natural phages to treat bacterial infection has very known history in the western medicine. Antibiotics are one of the most successful forms of chemotherapy in the history of medicine. It is not necessary to reiterate here

    this experiment we will use 6 different antibiotics which are Mezlocillin,Cefazolin,Lincomycin,Penicillin,Erythromycin,and Oxacillin on these two bacteria that is Bacillus subtilis and Micrococcus luteus and see the result which antibiotic will work better on which bacteria. We will put the bacteria on agar-agar plate with the antibiotic and leave plate for a week to get the result how effectively the antibiotic have work on the bacteria. Background on antibiotic: Bacillus subtilis:It can be easily

    deactivates bacteria and viruses without using antibiotics. These alcohols deactivate a broad range of microbial agents and are more effective at killing microbes than antibacterial or plain soaps. Additionally, the alcohol quickly evaporates limiting the time bacteria and viruses are exposed to the sanitizer. Bacteria require prolonged exposure to antibiotics to develop resistance. Hand sanitizers contain no antibiotics. Even if the microbes develop resistance to the alcohols in hand sanitizers they will

    Increasing incidences of antibiotic resistance among pathogens has created a demand to explore alternative treatment approaches. One such approach involves evaluating plant derived compounds for their activity against drug resistant pathogens. This study aims at examining the effect of green tea leaf extracts (GTE) on Metallo-β-lactamase (MBL) producing gram negative uropathogens. An ethanolic extract of GTE was prepared using soxhlet apparatus and its effect was studied on seven gram negative MBL

Their fate is potentially a major issue that is yet to be understood [1].Extensive use of antibiotics for disease prevention, treatment of microbial infections and promotion of animal and plant growth have led to the frequent detection of different antibiotics and their by products in the environment [2,3]. The antibiotics distribution in the environment can increase the resistance of bacteria and subsequently compromise public health by preventing treatment of infections caused with

Bacillus flora present in food is related to the distribution of the bacteria in soil, water, plants and the spores’ resistance to heat and desiccation. The species are more common in plants foods than foods of animal origin. B. Cereus is mostly associated with food products (Priest,
