New Antibiotic Discoveries

Antibiotics, also known as antibacterials, are a type of antimicrobial drug used in the treatment and prevention of bacterial infections. They can kill or inhibit the growth of bacteria. A limited number of antibiotics also possess antiprotozoal activity. Antibiotics are not effective against viruses such as colds or flu, and their inappropriate use allows the emergence of resistant organisms. In 1928, Alexander Fleming identified penicillin, the first chemical compound with antibiotic properties. Fleming was working on a culture of pathogenic bacteria when he noticed the spores of a small green mussel (Penicillium chrysogenum) in one of his culture plates. He observed that the presence of the mold killed or prevented the growth of bacteria.

The golden age of the discovery of antibiotics from 1940 to the early 1970s marked the beginning of a new era in human and animal health and the dramatic increase in human life expectancy. Indeed, the possibility of eradicating infectious diseases seemed possible. However, it soon became apparent that the microorganisms would not be defeated so easily. Their weapon: resistance to antibiotics. Today, resistance to microbial antibiotics rapidly depletes our supply of effective compounds and the possibility of a global public health disaster seems likely. The urgency of this situation has spawned a plethora of new multidisciplinary research initiatives in search of new antibiotics and other antimicrobial agents.
