Worldwide challenges of multidrug-resistant bacteria in patients with hematologic malignancies

0

The emergence of infections due to multidrug-resistant (MDR) bacteria poses a major public health threat to all patients, but patients with hematologic malignancies are especially at risk. A common thread across all classes of bacteria is that increased reliance on and usage of broad-spectrum antibacterial agents, combined with the intrinsic ability of bacteria to develop and transmit resistance-conferring mutations, has led to the widespread dissemination of MDR organisms.
