Doxycycline Defying Antimicrobial Resistance in India: Results from 2020 Study
In an era of increasing multidrug-resistance, rationalizing the use of effective and durable antimicrobial agents has become essential. There is more focus in this domain of research. Healthcare systems particularly, general physicians and diagnostic laboratories are being sensitized to be aware of the changing trends of antibiotic susceptibility and evaluate existing agents as much as possible for common infections.(1). An Indian study assessing the susceptibility of Doxycycline among other commonly prescribed antimicrobial agents is reviewed. This study re-emphasizes the therapeutic value and relevance of doxycycline in Indian practice settings.
