Antimicrobial resistance (AMR)—the ability of a microorganism (bacteria, virus, fungi, parasite) to resist the effects of a drug—has become a substantial public health concern in recent years. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), more than 2.8 million antimicrobial-resistant infections occur in the U.S. each year, and more than 35,000 people die as a result. Because AMR remains a global public health threat, it is one of FDA's Focus Areas of Regulatory Science.
