Abstract: The prevalence of the superbugs with the ability to surmount the inhibitory effects of most antibiotics is well known to the medical community. These organisms are often associated with mortality and morbidity, and due to the high resistance levels, the treatment of their infections causes extended hospital stays as well as increased expenses. Since more than a decade ago, it was common to detect multidrug resistant (MDR) strains in many pathogenic species such as Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Enterobacter sp.,Streptococcus pneumonia, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Acinetobacter baumannii, etc. However, the rapid development and dissemination of resistance traits among a wide range of bacterial species is now challenging the medical sector with the appearance of extensively drug resistant (XDR) and totally drug resistant (TDR) strains, or collectively the superbugs. Their tolerance to most of the available antimicrobials has left very limited therapeutic options to treat their infections. Hence, the phenomenon of drug resistance in bacteria is intimating the development of new and effective infection control strategies, and as rightly said by Daves, it is needed to consider antimicrobial resistance as a serious issue, and work together to win the battle against these bugs.
