Doctors first used penicillin on a human patient in 1941. Since then, many bacteria have evoloved resistance to anitbiotiocs. Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria describes pathogens that have become particularly adept at evading a wide range of antibiotics, and highlights how scientists continue to strive to develop new treatments and countermeasures to fight this onslaught. Case studies and historical anecdotes are presented to provide context and aid in understanding the problems associated with antibiotic resistance. Various antibiotic-resistance scenarios of the future are outlined, as well as personal strategies individuals can use to reduce the likelihood of antibiotic resistance.
