Focus on Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR)

AMR has been widely recognized as a global threat to public health with severe socioeconomic impact. Antibiotic-resistance has been responsible for >700,000 deaths every year, and the discovery rate of novel antimicrobials has failed to keep pace with the spread of resistance in clinical settings, generating an urgent need to allocate dedicated resources.

We thank Dr Vijay Kothari from Nirma University (India) who, as Guest Editor, coordinated this focus on AMR: it features articles on antibiotic-resistant infections, particularly those involving pathogens listed by the World Health Organization (WHO) as Priority Pathogens.
