Abstract

The incidence of tetracycline-resistant beta-haemolytic streptococci isolated in the Department of Pathology and Bacteriology of the Institute of Laryngology and Otology, London, during the years 1958-65 is reported. From less than 1% of all beta-haemolytic streptococci isolated in 1958 they increased to 44% in 1965. These findings are discussed.

Antimicrobial Resistance

Antimicrobial resistance poses a significant threat to the continued successful use of antimicrobial agents for the treatment of bacterial infections.

Allergy & Infectious Diseases (ASM)

Allergies result from the hyperreactivity of the immune system to some environmental substance and can be life-threatening. Infectious diseases are caused by organisms including bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites. They can be transmitted different ways, such as person-to-person. Here is the latest research on allergy and infectious diseases.
