Occurrence, management and clinical perspectives of drug resistance in important parasitic helminths of livestock

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter (peer-reviewed)

Abstract

Antimicrobial drug resistance is a global health problem that continues to expand as micro-organisms adapt to the antibiotics we use to treat them and as new classes of antimicrobial agents have been harder to discover and advance into the clinic. The second edition of Antimicrobial Drug Resistance grew out of a desire by the editors and authors to provide an updated, comprehensive resource of information on antimicrobial drug resistance that would encompass the current information available for bacteria, fungi, protozoa, and viruses. The two volumes have been extensively revised with many new authors and chapters as the field of drug resistance has evolved. Volume 2 addresses clinical, epidemiologic, and public health aspects of drug resistance, along with an overview of the conduct and interpretation of specific drug resistance assays. Together, these two volumes offer a comprehensive source of information on drug resistance issues by the experts in each topic.
