    One of the most pressing issues facing global health today is infections caused by antibiotic-resistant bacteria (ARB). Antibiotic resistance can be combated in a number of promising ways, including by developing new antibiotics, sensitizing ARB, or looking for alternatives to existing antibiotics. The most promising anti-ARB strategies currently in development are compiled in this review. Antibiotics can be improved in their efficacy by metabolic stimulation or by loading a novel, more efficient delivery system. Alternative antibiotics like bacteriophages and their encoded endolysins, anti-biofilm drugs, probiotics, nanomaterials, vaccines, and antibody therapies can also be developed as alternatives to conventional antibiotics. These strategies include the following: discovery of novel antibiotics by modifying existing antibiotics; screening of small-molecule libraries; or explorati.. Read More»
