About the book

Antimicrobial resistance represents a hot topic for the entire medical and scientific world in the last two decades. This phenomenon has a worldwide distribution and it seriously threats the ability to fight against various infectious diseases caused by bacteria or fungi. Its implications for public health are difficult to calculate taking into consideration that the antimicrobial resistance affects humans, animals, and environment. That is the reason we need a "one health" approach and a unitary view in the containment of antimicrobial resistance. Quantification of antimicrobial resistance transfer from animals to humans is still weak despite the huge amount of antibiotics used in farms and there is a stringent need for implementation into practice of new policies directed to the reduction of antimicrobials consumption in food-producing animals. The aim of this book is to bring new data about the epidemiology of antimicrobial resistance, mechanisms of transmission, new challenges in surveillance, detection, and control. The book will also be focused on emergent and harmful issues such as colistin resistant Gram-negative bacteria, multi-resistant yeast Candida auris, or azole resistant Aspergillus species.
