Antimicrobial resistance (AMR)
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 Environmental experts, officials and other professionals who wish to prevent the further spreading of Antimicrobial resistance, AMR Insights offers selected, global information and data, specific education and extensive networking and partnering opportunities.
AMR Insights is for:
- Environmental Researchers at universities and research institutes
- Environmental Experts at research and consultancy firms
- Labtechnicians at environmental quality laboratories
- Senior officials at national authorities and regulatory authorities staff
- Environmental Experts at drinking water, sewage and soil remediation companies

Molecular level removal of antibiotic resistant bacteria and genes: A review of interfacial chemical in advanced oxidation processes
Antibiotic resistant bacteria and antibiotic resistance genes pose risks to public health and ecosystems. Advanced oxidation technology, such as Fenton-like, photocatalysis, and electrocatalysis, can control antibiotic resistance. Understanding catalytic active sites and adsorption reactions between catalysts and ARGs can provide in-depth exploration of ARG removal mechanisms. This review reveals the potential of various catalysts for […]Read more...

Experiment to Demonstrate Pesticide-Induced Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR): An Emerging Health Threat
A study examining the effect of pesticide compound Imidacloprid 17.1% w/w on ATCC Escherichia coli revealed that the compound significantly influences antibiotic resistance, particularly with carbapenems, aminoglycosides, and cephalosporins. The study found that bacterial growth was not detected at dilutions of 1:1 and 1:2, indicating their inability to tolerate high concentrations. However, growth became evident […]Read more...

Anthropogenic contamination sources drive differences in antimicrobial-resistant Escherichia coli in three urban lakes
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) poses a significant threat to infectious disease treatment, but its prevalence in environmental reservoirs remains unclear. A study isolated antimicrobial-resistant Escherichia coli from three urban waterbodies over a 15-month time series, revealing distinct patterns of resistance. The strains were found to be resistant to clinically important antimicrobials, but susceptible to amikacin and […]Read more...
