Special Issue "Antimicrobial Resistance: A Global Challenge"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2023 | Viewed by 7704
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) has become a worldwide public health threat caused by inappropriate and massive consumption and disposal of antimicrobial drugs in the medicine, veterinary, zootechnical and agricultural fields.
Infectious diseases can be caused by multidrug-resistant microorganisms (MDRO) in hospitals, communities and livestock, threatening medical procedures or food production chains of both animal and plant origin.
As a global health challenge, an effective response to the AMR “silent pandemic” needs the One Health approach to reduce the risk for emerging zoonotic disease outbreaks as well as environmental spread of resistant pathogens and genes. This Special Issue will bring together scientific research studies and review papers focused on evidence-based interventions, sustainable use of antimicrobial treatments, monitoring strategies, tools, models, health determinants and estimates of the AMR burden in order to favor awareness and offer insights on how to address this critical issue for the ecosystem and human health.
