The Nature of Things Antibiotics: Growing Resistance

The Nature of Things Antibiotics: Growing Resistance

Researchers are concerned that certain diseases may have evolved into meaner, drug-resistant forms. Antibiotics: Growing Resistance explains how antibiotics work and why bacteria become immune to them. It also shows how the transmission of bacteria in high-risk areas such as hospitals and day care centres can be reduced. Doctors and researchers discuss the problems associated with over-prescribing and they stress the importance of education for doctors and patients.
