Drug-Resistant Acinetobacter baumannii – A Growing Superbug Population

Drug-Resistant Acinetobacter baumannii – A Growing Superbug Population

In recent years, natural and societal selective pressures have led to the emergence of numerous antibiotic-resistant microbial strains, including multidrug- and pandrug-resistant strains of Acinetobacter baumannii. These strains have become a significant cause of nosocomial infection among immunologically compromised individuals, resulting in increased morbidity and mortality. This presentation will provide an overview of this escalating problem and will explore the current techniques used to identify drug-resistant A. baumannii strains, available therapies, and remaining concerns.
