The global rise of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) poses a grave threat to public health, necessitating urgent action to develop novel antibiotics. This review article provides a comprehensive overview of recent advancements in the design and development of antibiotics aimed at countering AMR. We explore innovative strategies, technologies, and promising antibiotic candidates that hold the potential to reshape the landscape of infectious disease treatment.
