Current Trends In Antibiotic Resistance In Infectious Diseases by Asad U. Khan
Book Summary:

This book contains ten chapters which cover current trends on antibiotic resistance in different parts of the world. Some of the chapters are dedicated to specific type of bacteria like marine and cholera associated microorganisms. Whereas rest of the chapters are mainly focused on the mechanism of drug resistance with special reference to beta lactamases. Since most of the antibiotics used to treat infections belong to lactam group which is lactam ring (β-lactam) or penam is a lactam with a heteroatomic ring structure, consisting of three carbon atoms and one nitrogen atom. A lactam is a cyclic amide.

Audience of the Book :
This book useful for teachers, researchers, students, Genetic Engineering etc.
Key Features:

The main features of the book are as follows:

1. Compilation of 10 articles, this book puts forward the scenario of antibiotic resistance and its molecular mechanisms.

2. Information gained through this text will help to design new antibiotic as well as β-lactamase inhibitors to combat infections caused by resistant strains of bacteria.

3. Focuses on β-lactamases of different kinds.
