LONDON, ISELIN, UNITED KINGDOM, November 5, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The issue of antibacterial resistance is becoming increasingly prevalent within the world of modern medicine. Difficult-to-treat pathogens create an incredibly real issue within clinical environments; and the problem needs to be addressed with novel treatments and the development of mechanisms which circumvent current therapeutic barriers. The push to commercialization of novel anti-infectives is also a big barrier to market entry within the field; with red-tape and funding restrictions creating hindrances to the progress of anti-infective drugs through trial and regulatory approvals processes.

If you have not yet confirmed your attendance there is still time to secure one of the last few remaining seats at the only antibacterial event dedicated to combating drug resistance. With our Superbugs portfolio of events firmly becoming established as the industry's leading platform for updates on clinical progress, networking and industry developments, don't miss the chance to book your place before registration closes.
