Special Issue in Antibiotics: Rise of Antibiotic Resistance: Mechanisms Involved and Solutions to Tackle It
There have been growing calls for new medicines to combat infectious diseases and lethal pathogens resistant to existing treatments, but few promising therapies are currently in the biopharmaceutical R&D pipeline. The situation has caused fear of a “post-antibiotic” era of super-resistant superbugs, a prediction which is becoming increasingly realer each day. The quest for new antimicrobials to overcome resistance problems has long been a top research priority and a major societal problem. This Special Issue aims to collect authoritative and comprehensive reviews on major advances in the molecular engineering of antimicrobial molecules, from biosynthetic approaches and combinatorial chemistry to in silico tools.

Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Antibiotics is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2900 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
