Antimicrobial resistance is a natural phenomenon for the sake of the survival and maintenance of the species and is present in all geographic regions. It is a worldwide public health problem with few therapeutic options and a negative impact on patients infected by multidrug resistant organisms (MDROs).

MDROs, according to the most widely used criteria in the literature, are. Antimicrobial Resistance. Antimicrobial resistance is an organism’s ability to evade inhibition by an antimicrobial agent. Resistance traits can be acquired either through new mutations 14 or through transfer of genetic material between organisms (by bacteriophages or mobile genetic elements, such as plasmids, naked DNA, or transposons).
