Characterization of Biological Resistance and Successful Drug Resistance Control in Medicine
The auhtors have investigated some of the features characterizing biological resistance as a natural phenomenon displayed by all living organisms. It was observed that resistance manifestation in nature (in medicine and beyond) is governed by at least two laws and that resistance would not have arisen in the first place had the First Law not been violated. However, should the First Law be violated and resistance arise, this resistance has the potential of strengthening indefinitely—by virtue of the Second Law. One implication of this result is that as we take steps to reduce/limit antibiotics consumption in populations, even worldwide, resistance will still get worse and worse—however slowly that may be.
