Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is resistance of a microorganism to an antimicrobial drug that was originally effective for treatment of infections caused by it. Bacteria can become resistant to anti-bacterial agents, i.e. antibiotics, and in this setting the more specific term antibiotic resistance is used.
The bacteria listed below cover a range of diseases and levels of resistance. All of them present a threat to humans in some way or another. Some, like Tuberculosis for example, are already a huge challenge to overcome in their own right and will only become harder to control as their resistance to antibiotics grows.
