Infectious diseases are responsible for one in every two deaths in many developing countries, but people in sub-Saharan Africa are particularly vulnerable, as poverty is rampant and access to health care is limited. Additionally, the unregulated use of antibiotics in some parts of Africa has led to the emergence of resistance in pathogens. Indeed, one of the biggest pandemics is malaria, which kills millions annually. Currently, artemisinin (effective against chloroquine-resistant Plasmodium) is the only weapon available to fight this pandemic,

High prevalence of multidrug-resistant microorganisms in the etiologic structure of different infectious processes significantly decreases the effectiveness of the treatment and enhances the probability of an unfavorable outcome from the infection. Combinations between antibiotics and other antimicrobial agents represent one of the most promising approaches for combating multidrug-resistant bacteria. A high therapeutic potential exists for combinations of antibiotics and natural antimicrobial substances with complex mechanisms of action and multiple healing properties, such as plant essential oils. The purpose of the

Many bacterial diseases affect animals, causing important economic losses in livestock. Subtherapeutic antibiotic use in production animals as antibiotic growth promoters has been implicated as a causative factor in the development of resistance of bacterial pathogens toward several classes of antimicrobials, some of which are used therapeutically in humans. This has led to the banning of antibiotic growth promoters by the European Union, and such a precedent may be followed in other countries. Alternatives to antibiotic growth promoters are necessary

In the search for successful antitubercular treatments, investigators have often turned their efforts to ethnobotany, ethnopharmacology, and phytochemistry. Since many of the world’s peoples have well-developed systems of traditional medicine with plants and their extracts as a major component and many of these plants have been used to treat tuberculosis, indigenous herbal medicine is a logical starting point for a research program. The major aims in this chapter are to summarize current antitubercular treatments; look for structural patterns in

The development of vancomycin resistance by some microbial strains has made the treatment of some infections more difficult and, in many cases, impossible. Although the search for new drugs against vancomycin-resistant organisms has been very successful, resistance can arise against many of these compounds. Natural products are an invaluable source of a diversity of biologically active compounds for addressing the challenges facing drug development initiatives to combat vancomycin-resistant enterococcal infections. Despite the fact that scientific data on plant metabolites active

Aromatic and medicinal plants, through their secondary metabolism, provide a complex mixture of volatile molecules known as essential oils. These volatile molecules exert antibacterial activity that has been used in folk medicine for centuries. During the last few decades, the emergence of antibacterial resistance has forced us to search for new and efficient antimicrobial agents. The significant number of studies on the use of essential oils and their components against multidrug-resistant bacteria, such as Acinetobacter baumannii, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, Mycobacterium
