  • A comprehensive study of antimicrobial resistance
  • Fills a void, as there is no encyclopedic collection on the topic
  • Topic is very timely, as instances of antimicrobial resistance increase and once-controllable diseases spread
While many volumes have been written about various aspects of antimicrobial resistance, this book is a comprehensive reference work. All manifestations of resistance are addressed: viral; bacterial, parasitical and fungal are given dedicated sections. The underlining molecular mechanisms, which depend not only on the microbe but on the specific drug (target), are highly diverse. This work discusses and compares the biological, biochemical and structural aspects of resistance and its evolution.
