Structure-based drug design to overcome drug resistance: challenges and opportunities
(Bentham ScienceBussum, 2014-02)
Drug resistance is a common concern for the development of novel antiviral, antimicrobial and anticancer therapies. To overcome this problem, several strategies have been developed, many of which involving the theme of ...
Clinical management of drug-resistant tuberculosis in resource constrained settings
(Sage Publications, 2013-06)
Drug-resistant forms of tuberculosis (TB), particularly multi- and extensively drug-resistant TB, represent an important obstacle to global control of the disease. Recently, new drugs, repurposed drugs, and new drug ...

(International Journal of Antimicrobial Agents, 2013)
Advances in drug discovery of new antitubercular multidrug-resistant compounds
Tuberculosis (TB), a disease caused mainly by the Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb), is according to the World Health Organization (WHO) the infectious disease responsible for the highest number of deaths worldwide. The ...
The Association between Mycobacterium Tuberculosis Genotype and Drug Resistance in Peru
(Public Library of Science, 2015)
BACKGROUND: The comparison of Mycobacterium tuberculosis bacterial genotypes with phenotypic, demographic, geospatial and clinical data improves our understanding of how strain lineage influences the development of ...
Evaluation of a lens-free imager to facilitate tuberculosis diagnostics in MODS
Tuberculosis (TB) control efforts are hampered by a mismatch in diagnostic technology. Lack of adequate early diagnostics and Multi-drug resistant (MDR) detection is a critical problem in control efforts. Alternate and ...
Current advances in antitubercular drug discovery: potent prototypes and new targets
(Bentham Science Publishers, 2015)
Tuberculosis (TB) is an infectious disease caused by bacterium of the Mycobacterium genus, mainly by Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB). The World Health Organization aims to substantially reduce the number of cases in the ...
