Searching for Antimicrobials in the Unlikeliest of Places

The biggest challenge facing the world’s population is the shortage of antimicrobial compounds. This has arisen due to the overprescribing of antibiotics and other antimicrobials; as a consequence of bacterial resistance, arising from evolutionary mechanisms or plasmid transfer, to one or more antimicrobial compound; to add to this the threat of newly emerging pathogens remains ever-present.
To address these issues and to outline current research and developments in the search for new antimicrobials, Tim Sandle has written  a new paper for the Journal of Pharmaceutical Microbiology.

The reference is:
