Antibiotic materials play an essential role in preventing health-related problems in real life. Therefore, the present generation must know more about new antibiotics, antibiotics technology (is involved with nano, bio, engineering) and their related health issues in the modrences years. The primary purpose of this book is to provide significant information about antibiotic related issues, accurate solutions and recent investigative information for the health-related applications. In addition, this book can address to design and development of antibiotics with advanced (physical, chemical and biological) properties, analysis of materials, in vivo and in vitro applications, and their biomedical applications for healthcare.

Key Features

  • Provides information on all aspects of antibiotic related issues
  • Offers a balanced synthesis of basic and clinical sciences for each individual case, presenting clinical courses of the cases in parallel with the pathogenesis and detailed microbiological information for each infection
  • Describes the prevalence and incidence of the global issues and current therapeutic approaches


Researchers and postgraduate students in applied microbiology, medicine, material and polymer science, nanotechnology and biomedicine
