Mechanisms of antibiotic resistance and tolerance in Streptococcus pneumoniae.
2000 (English)In: Microbes and infection, ISSN 1286-4579, E-ISSN 1769-714X, Vol. 2, no 15, 1855-64 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Streptococcus pneumoniae is a major pathogen causing potentially life-threatening community-acquired diseases in both the developed and developing world. Since 1967, there has been a dramatic increase in the incidence of penicillin-resistant and multiply antibiotic-resistant pneumococci worldwide. Prevention of access of the antibiotic to the target, inactivation of the antibiotic and alteration of the target are mechanisms that S. pneumoniae has developed to resist antibiotics. Recent studies on antibiotic-tolerant pneumococcal mutants permitted development of a novel model for the control of bacterial cell death.
