DRUG RESISTANCE By Tejaswini M Second Year BNYS 2. DEFINITION Drug resistance is the ability of microbes, such as bacteria, viruses, parasites, or fungi, to grow in the presence of a chemical (drug) that would normally kill it or limit its growth. It is the reduction in effectiveness of a drug in curing a disease or condition.

    Resistance transfer factor (shortened as R-factor or RTF) is an old name for a plasmid that codes for antibiotic resistance. R-factor was first demonstrated in Shigella in by Japanese scientists. Search the world's most comprehensive index of full-text books. My library.

    A genetic factor in bacteria that controls resistance to certain antibiotic drugs. The factor may be passed from one bacterium to another. This makes it possible for nonpathogenic bacteria to become resistant to antibiotics and to transfer that resistance to pathogens, thereby establishing a potential source for an epidemic.

Antibiotic-resistant enteric bacteria (Escherichia coli, Klebsiella-Aerobacter-Serratia, Salmonella, andShigella) can transfer resistance to sensitive bacteria during bacterial conjugation (mating).

The genetic element, responsible for both mating and resistance, is extrachromosomal deoxyribonucleic acid, known as an R factor. Antibiotic-resistant enteric bacteria (Escherichia coli, Klebsiella-Aerobacter-Serratia, Salmonella, and Shigella) can transfer resistance to sensitive bacteria during bacterial conjugation (mating).

Provides readers with knowledge about the broad field of drug resistance. Briefly, this type of resistance is transferred from cell to cell by resistance factors (R-factors), which have been postulated to consist of the genetic determinants for drug resistance (R-determinants), and resistance transfer factors (R.T.F.s).Cited by:   Thank you for your interest in spreading the word about The BMJ.

Types. Resistance to chemicals is only one aspect of the problem, another being resistance to physical factors such as temperature, pressure, sound, radiation and magnetism, and not discussed in this article, but found at Physical factors affecting microbial life. Drug, toxin, or chemical resistance is a consequence of evolution and is a response to pressures imposed on any living organism.

Gopalakrishna Pillai, in Applications of Targeted Nano Drugs and Delivery Systems, 5 Multiple Drug Resistance. Multiple drug resistance (MDR) is a major factor in the failure of many chemotherapeutic agents and is a major challenge in cancer chemotherapy.

Many cancers develop resistance, resulting in minimal cancer cell death and production of drug-resistant tumors. Transfer of antibiotic resistance Bacteria can share genes with each other in a process called horizontal gene transfer. This can occur both between bacteria of the same species and between different species and by several different mechanisms, given the right conditions.
