GARCIA APAC, Coralith. Antimicrobial resistance in Peru and Latin America. Acta méd. peruana [online]. 2012, vol.29, n.2, pp.99-103. ISSN 1728-5917.

Antimicrobial resistance is a growing problem all over the world.

This means that bacteria are evolutionarily surviving and multiplying developing strains that are more difficult to treat, which may lead to the occurrence of severe diseases or death

Keywords : Anti-Bacterial Agents; Drug Resistance; Bacterial; bacteria.
