on Antimicrobial resistance
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) develops when bacteria, fungi or viruses are exposed to antibiotics, antifungals or antivirals.
As a result, the antimicrobials become ineffective and infections may persist. In addition, medical interventions including surgery, chemotherapy and stem cell therapy may become impossible.
AMR is considered the biggest global threat of Health and Food Safety.
For professionals who oppose Antimicrobial resistance, AMR Insights offers valuable information, targeted training and global networking and partnering opportunities.
AMR Insights is committed to eliminating Antimicrobial resistance because it does not accept that millions of innocent people need to die as a result of resistant bacteria and other microorganisms.

Disruptive Antibiotics and Non-Antibiotic Therapies to Combat Drug-Resistant Bacterial Infections
The field of antibacterial drug discovery and development is contracting dramatically whilst the antimicrobial resistance continues to increase. In addition to the lack of resource for R&D due to the antibiotic market failure, there are major technical challenges in the field. It is harder than ever before to discover new targets, and discover new chemical entities that are suitable for clinical development

Long-term application of Swedish sewage sludge on farmland does not cause clear changes in the soil bacterial resistome
The widespread practice of applying sewage sludge to arable land makes use of nutrients indispensable for crops and reduces the need for inorganic fertilizer, however this application also provides a potential route for human exposure to chemical contaminants and microbial pathogens in the sludge.
