For appropriate therapy, knowing the antibiotic resistance pattern in ESKAPE pathogens is essential, therefore we examined the distribution of antibiotic resistance in mentioned microorganisms.
The prevalence of MDR-strains of ESKAPE pathogens were following as: Enterococcus faecium, Staphylococcus aureus, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Acinetobacter baumannii, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Enterobacter Spp.
We hope it will lead to the development of a novel and safe antimicrobial that can be added to the diminished arsenal for the fight against the ESKAPE pathogens and other infection-related health issues plaguing the planet.
