Most insightful knowledge platform for professionals who wish to eradicate 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.
