Global antibacterial resistance: The never-ending story
July 12, 2015 Leave a comment
New resistance mechanisms evolve, resistant bacteria are spreading quickly in some parts of the world. The topic of resistance finds increasingly interest as physicians are confronted with infections caused by multi-drug resistant, extensively- drug resistant and even pan-drug resistant bacteria without any therapeutic option.
The new Journal of Global Antimicrobial Resistance focuses on the global spread of antibiotic-resistant microbes. It has received its first Impact Factor despite not being indexed yet by PubMed. My paper, published 2 years ago, is the most-cited paper from this new journal: Global antibacterial resistance: The never-ending story.
