Gut health and antimicrobial resistance

Advances in technology are leading to a deeper understanding of antimicrobial resistance and the many factors at play.

For example, researchers are investigating the significance of higher or lower levels of certain bacteria in relation to higher or lower levels of antimicrobial resistance. 

Explore the research articles listed below to learn more about what science is uncovering in the gut microbiome and what it can tell us about antimicrobial resistance.

antibiotics may influence gut microbiome

Antibiotics are an important part of modern medicine, but overuse can have unintended consequences on your gut microbiome.

World Microbiome Day, Microba antimicrobial resistance

We believe antibiotic resistance must be recognised as an urgent issue requiring immediate attention. Find out how we're making a difference.
