Infection and Drug Resistance
Publisher: Dove Medical Press
Infection and Drug Resistance is an international, peer-reviewed, Open
Access journal that focuses on the optimal treatment of infection
(bacterial, fungal and viral) and the development and institution of
preventative strategies to minimize the development and spread of
The journal is specifically concerned with the epidemiology of
antibiotic resistance and the mechanisms of resistance development and
diffusion in both hospitals and the community. In particular, research
and clinical development of novel mechanism of action anti-infectives
and the optimal use of existing therapies will be highlighted.
Other areas of coverage include diagnostic and early detection of
infection, proteomic and genomic studies to characterize surface
proteins in resistant organisms, and educational and infection control
strategies. With increased mortality, morbidity and healthcare costs
associated with developing resistance, research, clinical studies and
programs designed to improve outcomes and patient adherence and
satisfaction will be given priority.
The journal is characterized by the rapid reporting of reviews,
guidelines, original research and clinical studies in all areas of
infection and drug resistance.
