Divided into three sections, the first describes the problem of drug resistance an the need for new drugs, while the second treats recent trends and new classes of drugs, including relevant developments in transcriptomics and proteomics leading to new antimicrobial drug discovery, and a new generation of antibiotics and non–antibiotics. The third section on natural products discusses the antibacterial action of phytocompounds, plant extracts, essential oils and honey as well as the role of robotics in bacterial infections.
Invaluable to student so medicine, pharmaceutical sciences, phyto–medicine and microbiology and all those wanting to know about the possibilities and limitations of new antibacterial drugs,. Furthermore, its coverage of plants and other natural products makes this relevant to the pharmaceutical and herbal industries.
