A vital, comprehensive overview from some of the world’s leading researchers and scholars in this field.
• Discusses bβ-Lactamases and aminoglycoside-modifying enzymes as well as other enzymatic mechanisms that result in resistance.
• Covers the different ways bacteria share resistance determinants, both vertically and horizontally.
• Offers strategies to control the dissemination of resistance genes and to combat these highly versatile inactivating enzymes.
• Serves as a resource for researchers working for clinical research laboratories, hospitals, medical schools, and applied and pharmaceutical research laboratories.
