Introduction

Pseudomonas aeruginosa is known as a persistent bacterial pathogen. Antibiotics are currently the most common bacterial treatment for related infections but cases of microbial resistance are on the rise. Toxin-Antitoxin Systems in Pseudomonas aeruginosa describes one of the most important antimicrobial targets in the bacterium species. The contributors have compiled comprehensive information on the subject. The reference initially acquaints the reader with key topics about P. aeruginosa infection including virulence factors, pathogenicity, epidemiology, laboratory diagnosis and antibiotic resistance. This is followed by detailed chapters on toxin-antitoxin systems which explain their role in the bacterial pathogenesis with reference to P. aeruginosa.

The comprehensive information on the subject makes this an ideal reference for newcomers to the field of bacteriology and target discovery. Students of medical microbiology and medical professionals who are interested in the finer details of P. aeruginosa pathogenicity will also be equipped with sufficient information to join the discussion on this topic with fellow researchers.
