Target Site Alterations & Resistance

Target site alteration is one of the mechanisms though which resistance to drugs can occur. For instance, amino acid substitutions can lead to an altered binding site for the drug which can lead to a decrease in the binding affinity of the drug to the target, thus conferring resistance to the drug. Here is the latest research on target site alterations and resistance.

Efflux-Mediated Drug Resistance

Efflux-mediated drug resistance is one mechanism where bacteria can express proteins that pump out antibiotics, thereby rendering therapy ineffective. Discover the latest research on efflux-mediated drug resistance here.

Horizontal Gene Transfer

Horizontal gene transfer is a mechanism in which genetic material is transmitted from one organism to another organism. This process is used by bacteria to acquire antibiotic resistance genes and is important for bacterial evolution. Discover the latest research on horizontal gene transfer here.

Infectious Disease - Sequencing

Infectious Disease Sequencing is a emerging field due to low-cost massively parallel sequencing and allows researchers to monitor outbreaks of infectious pathogens. Discover the latest research on Infectious Disease Sequencing here.

MRSA Infections

MRSA Infections or Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infections are difficult to treat due to resistance to the beta-lactam family of antibiotics. MRSA infections are commonly acquired in hospitals. Discover the latest research on MRSA Infections here.

Metabolic Pathways & Drug Resistance

Metabolic pathways have been used as drug targets in the development of therapeutic compounds. Change of metabolic pathways can render the loss of therapeutic effects, a mechanism that is commonly found in drug resistance.
