The steadily increasing of the resistance of human pathogens to multiple antimicrobials over the last decade is alarming and a serious threat to public health.[1] While the emergence of multidrug resistance has been associated with misuse and abuse of antimicrobials, the number of available effective agents is decreasing as novel compounds arriving into the market are scarce.[2,3]

Tetraazamacrocycles are versatile and readily tunable molecules with potential for the development of derivatives having enhanced antimicrobial activity. Our recent work led to the identification of cyclam derivatives as a potential novel class of compounds that represents a breakthrough in the field of new antibacterial drugs.[4]

Numerous medication opposition
Numerous medication opposition (MDR), multidrug obstruction or multi-opposition is antimicrobial opposition appeared by a type of microorganism to different antimicrobial medications. Whey protein in Pakistan. The sorts most compromising to general wellbeing are MDR microscopic organisms that oppose numerous antimicrobials.
