Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues, 

Infections have become more difficult to treat as a result of not appropriate use of antibiotics. With drug resistance, antimicrobial treatment no longer has the desired effect, which increases the risk of poor outcomes in patients with AMR-related infections. Despite a relatively low rate of bacterial coinfection during SARS-COV-2 infection, there was a significant increase in antibiotic prescriptions during the COVID-19 pandemic. Misuse of antibiotics in these patients may increase the selective pressure for antimicrobial resistance (AMR).

The current special issue as the main aim to discuss recent advances in Antimicrobial treatment in Internal medicine. Thus, Reviews, original articles and case reports could be submitted to share experiences and rational use of antibiotics in internal medicine ward unit. Would also be accepted, as submission, also papers on strategic approach to antimicrobial stewardship and infection control throughout a correct use of antibiotics.
