Multidrug Resistance in Infants and Children

Bacterial infections may cause disease and death. Infants and children are often subject to bacterial infections. Antimicrobials kill bacteria protecting the infected patients andreducing the risk of morbidity and mortality caused by bacteria. The antibiotics may lose their antibacterial activity when they become resistant to a bacteria. The resistance to different antibiotics in a bacteria is ...

Multidrug resistance associated proteins in multidrug resistance

Multidrug resistance proteins (MRPs) are members of the C family of a group of proteins named ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporters. These ABC transporters together form the largest branch of proteins within the human body. The MRP family comprises of 13 members, of which MRP1 to MRP9 are the major transporters indicated to cause multidrug resistance in tumor cells by extruding anticancer dru...

Molecular mechanisms involved in multidrug resistance in breast cancer therapy

Breast cancer is the most prevalent cancer in women. Chemotherapy is the main strategy in the treatment of this disease especially in the advanced form of the disease. Despite the recent progress in the development of new chemotherapy, the effectiveness of these drugs has dramatically reduced due to multidrug resistance. The phenotype of multidrug resistance (MDR) can occur through different me...

Multidrug resistance in fungi.

One of the major advances serving to define the beginning of the era of modern medicine was the development of penicillin in the early 1940s as the first widely used antibiotic effective against microorganisms (reviewed in reference 111). In what has become an all-too-common trend, antibiotic-resistant isolates emerged soon after the large-scale use of penicillin to treat bacterial infections (...

Are rates of molecular evolution in mammals substantially accelerated in warmer environments?

Gillman et al. [1] test the notion that rates of molecular evolution are accelerated in small-bodied mammal species inhabiting geographical areas with warmer ambient temperatures. Their methodology involved estimation of many phylogenetic trees each consisting of a mammal sister species pair and two closely related outgroup species. One member of each sister species pair occurred at lower latit...
