Antibiotic resistance is an increasing threat that compromises therapies of bacterial infections in humans and animals. Antibiotics are often administered without an adequate microbiological diagnosis that documents a bacterial infection. This irrational use of antibiotics has contributed to the selection of an increasing number of resistant strains able to cause infection in animals as well as their owners, breeders and consumers. Moreover, wild mammals and birds may be carriers of resistant bacteria that contaminate different environments and consequently affect people, pets and farm animals.Considering the difficulties to treat most bacterial infections, alternative therapies are welcome in veterinary and human medicine.
This Special Issue, characterized by a One Health perspective, will be devoted to research and review studies about antibiotic resistance in bacterial strains isolated from animals and humans. Studies about new antimicrobial therapies including alternative remedies such as essential oils and other natural products are welcome too.
