Studenteropgave: Fagmodulprojekt


This project addresses the problems concerning antibiotics - in particular, the antibiotic resistance developed by Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. In general, antibiotics is used as an effective way to treat bacterial infections but are susceptible to bacterial resistance. The comparison of various articles allowed for an analysis of how levels of antibiotic resistance have changed over time, and how they are affected by different Gram bacteria. Through this method, this study analyses the differences between Gram-positive and Gram-negative development of antibiotic resistance and determines the impact of drug-resistant bacteria on society. The discussion in this project addresses the impact of the abuse of antibiotics, as well as the problems associated with creating potent antibiotics. It has been concluded that there is an increase in bacterial resistance against antibiotics due to their poor use, and that the expenses from creating a medically accepted antibiotic makes it a difficult endeavour. The project shows that antibiotics are an important tool to save many lives, with the pressure on Gram-negative oriented antibiotics being the heaviest. This study as such agrees with an increase in funding, investment and attention towards the development and awareness of the limitations of antibiotics.
