Clinical cases

The development of antimicrobial resistance has been evolving rapidly and has been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, leading to a dramatic limitation of therapeutic options.

This is why an update and awareness of the problem through the clinical interpretation of the antibiogram in professionals working both at the hospital level and in governmental institutions is of vital importance.

The Pan American Association of Infectious Diseases (API) and bioMérieux have designed with Experts a series clinical cases available in English, French, Spanish and Portuguese.
