Title:
Antibiotic Resistance in West Africa: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
Authors:
Bernabé, K; Langendorf, C; Ford, N; Ronat, J; Murphy, R
Journal:
International Journal of Antimicrobial Agents
Abstract:
Growing data suggest that antibiotic-resistant bacterial infections are common in low and middle-income countries. This review summarizes the microbiology of key bacterial syndromes encountered in West Africa and estimates the prevalence of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) that could compromise first-line empirical treatment.
