Abstract:

The expanding problem of resistance to β-lactam antibiotics and β-lactam inhibitors of β-lactamases illustrates the genetic adaptability of bacterial populations. The evolution of bacterial resistance to the action of these drugs occurred over a relatively short period. Bacteria become resistant to antibiotics and β-lactam compounds acting as β-lactamase inhibitors either through mutations or by acquisition of specific resistance genes from other bacteria. Global antibacterial resistance is an increasing public health problem. The pharmaceutical industries are reacting to the problem by discovering novel antibacterial agents to overcome the emergence of bacterial resistance to antibiotics and β-lactamase inhibitors. A section of the chapter summarizes the status of the development of structural modifications of existing groups and subgroups of antibacterial agents to make them less susceptible to degradation by β-lactamases, to increase penetrability through the outer membrane of gram-negative bacteria, or to have an increased affinity for mutated penicillin-binding proteins (PBPs). The search for new anti-methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)-lactam antibiotics appears to be focused on developing agents that inhibit PBP2a, which gives rise to methicillin resistance in staphylococci and penicillin-resistant pneumococci. The increase in β-lactam antibiotic resistance due to the production and rapid spread of resistance encoded by plasmids or transposons in pathogenic bacteria has made the enzymes an attractive target for drug development.
