Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The global increase in antimicrobial and antiviral resistance poses a significant threat to human efforts to combat infectious diseases. The importance of proper stewardship in addressing antimicrobial and antiviral resistance is becoming increasingly evident. Understanding the mechanisms underlying antimicrobial and antiviral resistance, as well as developing advanced laboratory diagnostics for early detection, is crucial for effectively controlling and preventing these resistance phenomena.

For this Special Issue, we invite research contributions addressing the following themes:

  1. Epidemiology of antimicrobial and antiviral resistance;
  2. Viral infection in immunocompromised patients;
  3. Control and prevention of antimicrobial and antiviral resistance;
  4. Strategies of antimicrobial stewardship to combat antimicrobial and antiviral resistance;
  5. Advanced laboratory diagnostics of antimicrobial and antiviral resistance;
  6. Mechanism of antimicrobial resistance antiviral resistance.
