Περιγραφή

The book covers antimicrobial resistance in ocular diseases, including the microbiology of the ocular surface, the history and origin of antimicrobials, methods to detect antimicrobial resistance and antimicrobial resistance genes, and the impact of antimicrobial resistance on a variety of ocular diseases. The inclusion of chapters covers bacterial keratitis, fungal keratitis, viral keratitis, acanthamoeba keratitis, endophthalmitis, dry eye disease, post fever retinitis, and uveitis including management and prevention of antimicrobial resistance.

Key Features-

  • Focusses on various ocular diseases and their association with antimicrobial resistance
  • Includes data relevant to drug industry to develop drugs for specific ophthalmic use
  • Illustrates ocular surface microbiome under various diseased conditions
  • Highlights the microbes associated with the conjunctiva and cornea of the human eye
  • Enumerates the changes in the abundance and diversity of the AMR microorganisms in the diseased eye
