There are some key facts about AMR according to WHO European Region as follow. Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) threatens the effective prevention and treatment of an ever-increasing range of infections caused by bacteria, parasites, viruses and fungi.

  • AMR is an increasingly serious threat to global public health that requires action across all government sectors and society.
  • Without effective antibiotics, the success of major surgery and cancer chemotherapy would be compromised.
  • The cost of health care for patients with resistant infections is higher than care for patients with nonresistant infections due to longer duration of illness, additional tests and use of more expensive drugs.

Phytocosmetics will provide presentation with Dr. Xavier Lozoya about efficacy of plant-based antibiotics in combating Antimicrobial resistance (AMR). His biography is below in spanish language:

“Dr. Lozoya es médico mexicano (n.1945, Ciudad de México) investigador de plantas medicinales y promotor de la moderna fitoterapia fundamentada científicamente en la tradición herbolaria indígena de su país. En 1975 inició sus actividades de investigación científica de plantas medicinales y en los siguientes 35 años ha sido sido fundador de varios grupos de investigacion en diversas instituciones académicas en México, desarrollando la metodología de investigación etnobotanica, fitoquimica, farmacológica, toxicológica y clínica, que le ha dado proyección internacional en el desarrollo de nuevos medicamentos a partir de la flora medicinal autóctona. Ha publicado cerca de 200 trabajos originales de investigacion experimental, ha registrado 6 patentes de nuevos medicamentos y escrito mas de 20 libros sobre historia de la ciencia en México y de la herbolaria medicinal mexicana. Actualmente dirige su propio centro-empresa de investigación denominado Phytomedicamenta S.A. de C.V. para transferir directamente el conocimiento científico en este campo al creciente sector industrial de productos naturales con propiedades medicinales.”
