About the Study

All around the world, antibiotic resistance is increasing to alarming heights. Our ability to cure widespread infectious illnesses is being threatened by the emergence and worldwide dissemination of new resistance mechanisms. As antibiotics lose their effectiveness, a rising number of illnesses, including gonorrhoea, blood poisoning, pneumonia, and TB, which become difficult to cure and occasionally becoming incurable. Antibiotic exposure during infancy alters the development of the gut microbiota in ways that are harmful to children’s health. Antibiotics enhance the resistome which is a collection of genes associated with antibiotic resistance within the gut microbiota and increase the prevalence of resistant bacteria. Antibiotic resistance is mostly caused by community pharmacies giving antibiotics without a prescription. In order to combat antibiotic resistance, China has identified restricting the non-prescription selling of antibiotics at neighbourhood pharmacies as a critical task. The country intends to do deal with this practise nationwide and the cross-sectional and longitudinal non-prescription antibiotic dispensing rates in community pharmacies in China.

Antibiotics offer a practical solution to many illnesses, and infectious diseases pose a serious threat to humanity. Antibiotic resistance is increasingly recognised as a key one health issue and is a developing global public health concern. The origin, evolution, and transmission of antibiotic-resistant bacteria on a local and worldwide scale are a significant risk factor for global health and is influenced by the interrelated domains of one health. Resistant pathogens can emerge in a variety of environments as a result of the persistence and expansion of resistant microbial species as well as the association of factors at the human-animal-environment interface. ABR is driven by a recognised connection between the health of people, animals, and the environment. The one health strategy to address ABR makes sense. Based on the recommendations of the Tripartite’s Commitment set forth by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), World Organization for Animal Health, and World Health Organization (WHO), several nations have implemented national action plans based on the one health strategy to combat antibiotic-resistant microbes. The ABR has been recognised as a worldwide health problem, and measures are being taken to lessen this risk.

Limiting the ABR dissemination cycle, educating people about the proper use of antibiotics, and advancing policy, advocacy, and antimicrobial stewardship all need for global, multidisciplinary, and coordinated initiatives based on one health concepts. For the common human disease Helicobacter pylori, rising antibiotic resistance poses a grave risk to public health. In-depth research has been done on the molecular processes behind this resistance, which are covered in this review. Single-drug resistance, multi-drug resistance, and hetero resistance appear to occur, all with potentially similar underlying basic processes and clinical implications. The mechanisms that have received the greatest attention are those that are linked to chromosomally encode mutational alterations that interfere with the cellular action of antibiotics via target-mediated mechanisms.


Less research has been done on other biological factors influencing drug resistance in H. pylori, which might indicate more complicated physiological alterations (such compromised drug absorption and or efflux regulation, biofilm and coccoid production, etc). The pathogen’s resistance-related traits lead to treatment failures, diagnostic challenges, and uncertainty in the clinical interpretation of therapy results. Globally, there has been significant decline in the effectiveness of H. pylori therapy due to rising antibiotic resistance. In the absence of a reliable vaccination, further efforts are required to establish new treatment plans, the formation and spread of drug-resistant bacteria, and improve the diagnostic equipment that can assist optimise current antibiotic regimens.
