Introduction

Frontiers in Clinical Drug Research – Anti Infectives is an eBook series that brings updated reviews to readers interested in learning about advances in the development of pharmaceutical agents for the treatment of infectious diseases. The scope of the eBook series covers a range of topics including the medicinal chemistry, pharmacology, molecular biology and biochemistry of natural and synthetic drugs employed in the treatment of infectious diseases. Reviews in this series also include research on multi drug resistance and pre-clinical / clinical findings on novel antibiotics, vaccines, antifungal agents and antitubercular agents. Frontiers in Clinical Drug Research – Anti Infectives is a valuable resource for pharmaceutical scientists and postgraduate students seeking updated and critically important information for developing clinical trials and devising research plans in the field of anti infective drug discovery and epidemiology.

The first volume of this series features reviews that cover a variety of topics including:

  • - Bacteriophage research against gram positive bacteria
  • - Edible vaccines
  • - Novel antibiotics against gram negative bacteria
  • - Antimicrobial resistance among enteric pathogens
