The topic of antimicrobial resistance is back in the spotlight after the US FDA released a new website and a number of proposals to encourage the drug development in the area.

The number of new antibiotics being approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has steadily fallen over the years. As well as an R&D slowdown, a number of companies have backed out of the space to focus on other therapeutic areas, most recently Novartis​.
