Mechanisms of Antibiotics and Antimicrobial Resistance: Strategies and updated technologies to reduce the possible emergence of antimicrobial resistance.

The development of antimicrobial resistance poses an enormous threat as it renders antibiotics ineffective against pathogens, making previously treatable conditions harder to control. The World Health Organization estimates about 700,000 people die due to multidrug-resistant diseases annually. This number is expected to steadily increase at an alarming rate over the next few decades. Thus, antimicrobial resistance should be better understood to help improve these statistics. This review outlines the major mechanisms of antimicrobial resistance, explains how the microbe gains this resistance (dissemination of antimicrobial resistance), and explores methods of combating antimicrobial resistance in the future.
