The World Health Organisation stated that infectious diseases are responsible for 17 million deaths globally each year. The development of antibiotics therefore is a major contributor to the saving of lives and to improving the quality of life. Used appropriately, antibiotics are life saving. On the other hand, antibiotics are among the most commonly prescribed drugs in the world. Indiscriminate use of antibiotics increases the cost of healthcare, causes many drug induced side effects and contributes to the emergence of bacterial resistance. In the face of growing global antibiotic resistance rates the rational use of antibiotics depends on understanding the mechanism of action and many more pharmacological concepts.
