Rapid antimicrobial resistance detection for early directed therapies against infectious diseases
Targeting AMR has important clinical implications not only related to diagnosis and management but also prevention of infectious diseases, particularly those causing sepsis.

However, in a meta-analysis of sepsis treatment, the mortality rate in patients who were receiving inappropriate antibiotic therapy was higher than among patients who were appropriately treated.
