Description

Combination Therapy against Multidrug Resistance explores the potential of combination therapy as an efficient strategy to combat multi-drug resistance. The book considers how combination therapy can apply in multiple situations, including cancer, HIV, tuberculosis, fungal infections, and more. Sections cover the most relevant information on prospects of combination therapy as a strategy to combat multidrug resistance and help motivate the industrial sector and government agencies to invest more in research and development. This comprehensive resource is useful to academics and researchers involved in the development of new antimicrobial or anti-infective agents and treatment strategies to combat multidrug resistance.

Key Features

  • Explores strategic methods with investigation of both short- and long-term goals to combat multidrug resistance
  • Presents a broad scope to help users fully understand how to apply combined therapy to multidrug resistance
  • Provides an overview of combination therapy, but also includes specific cases such as cancer, tuberculosis, HIV and malaria

Readership
