Antibiotics are a class of chemicals produced by microorganisms which function to specifically kill or inhibit other microorganisms. They have been pivotal weapons in the fight against disease since the Second World War. However, bacteria routinely develop resistance to antibiotics, in many cases resulting in the rise of 'superbugs'. Superbugs have become a worldwide concern for public health and combatting them is a major scientific challenge for the 21st century.”
