Pros, cons and future of antibiotics

Elroy P. Weledji, Elizabeth K Weledji, Jules C. Assob, Dickson S. Nsagha.

The advantages of antibiotics have been most clearly seen in those acute bacterial infections
which had a high mortality before the introduction of antibiotics. The reality of the potential
harmful effects of antibiotics, both short term in individual patients and long term in favoring
emergent resistance and opportunistic pathogens are discussed. Bacterial resistance makes the
standard treatments ineffective, and increases the risk of infection spreading. The shortage of
novel antibiotics has strengthened the efforts of genome sequencing to control bacterial
resistance. The future would include novel approaches, based on a re-conceptualization of the
nature of resistance, disease and prevention.
