    Antimicrobial peptides (AMPs), also called host defense peptides (HDPs) are part of the innate immune response found among all classes of life. Fundamental differences exist between prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells that may represent targets for antimicrobial peptides are potent, broad spectrum antibiotics which demonstrate potential as novel therapeutic agents.   Book: Microbiology (OpenStax) Describe the historically important individuals and events that led to the development of antimicrobial drugs; Clinical Note: PART 1 of more than half of all natural antibiotics 4 and continue to serve as an excellent reservoir for the discovery of novel antimicrobial agents. The internationally recognised response to AMR advocates for a 'One Health' approach, which requires policies to be developed and implemented across human, animal, and environmental health. To date, misaligned economic incentives have slowed the development of novel antimicrobials and limited efforts to reduce antimicrobial usage.   Infections due to multidrug-resistant (MDR) bacteria are increasing both in hospitals and in the community and are characterized by high mortality rates. New molecules are in development to face the need of active compounds toward resistant gram-positive and gram-negative pathogens. In particular, the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) has supported the initiative to develop Cited by:
