Future developments in antimicrobial agents
Professor David Livermore highlights increasing resistance and the major bacterial challenges we face. Beta-lactams, the most widely used antibiotic are losing their efficacy. However, there is hope for antimicorbial agents. Cefiderocol, murepavadin and gepotidacin/zoliflodacin all show promise in replacing spent antibiotics. Further, non-antibiotic approaches and improved molecular diagnostics, while not currently comprehensive, could revolutionise the field.
