Is antimicrobial resistance evolution accelerating?
The problem of drug resistance evolution has been observed early on in the antibiotic era. Ultimately, however, the introduction of each antimicrobial resulted in resistance evolution in target and nontarget microbes. In realization of this problem, some antibiotics such as daptomycin were even developed with avoiding resistance evolution in mind, yet it took only 2 years from the introduction of daptomycin until resistance was recorded. But how fast is resistance evolving?
