Antibiotics

Only 90 years have passed since the discovery of the fungal compound effective against bacteria to the production of synthetic antibiotics. During this time, formerly dangerous medical treatments and diseases became possible or curable. The downside of the success of antibiotically active substances is their natural counterpart - evolution. The development of resistance in bacterial strains is the greatest challenge facing 21st century medicine.
