Simulation of bacterial resistance for different antibiotic consumption strategies based on the Escherichia coli resistance to cephalosporins

Objective. Objectives. To research the qualitative relationships between the level of antimicrobial resistance and the level of consumption of different antimicrobial agents, and to further apply this knowledge to minimize the level of resistance. Materials and Methods. An extensive simulation was performed based on the previously implemented model describing the relationship between a resistance and levels of antibiotic consumption. It makes possible to estimate the resistance growth rates in different antibiotic consumption strategies.

Systematic Review of Mathematical Models Used for Predicting Bacterial Resistance

Acquired bacterial resistance is currently one of the causes of mortality and morbidity from infectious diseases. Mathematical modeling allows us to predict the further spread of resistance and to some extent to control its dynamics. The purpose of …
