The discovery of antibiotics at the beginning of the 20th century constituted one of the biggest revolutions in modern medicine. However, the euphoric feeling of overcoming the challenge of bacterial-caused diseases did not last. Shortly after the initiation of antibiotics use, bacteria started to develop diverse ways of resistance, so the higher usage of antibiotics, the higher incidence of resistant bacteria. Nowadays, antibiotic resistance is a race where the development of bacterial resistance mechanisms is faster than the discovery of new antibacterial molecules. Not for nothing, antibiotic resistance poses a serious global problem, for both Public and Animal Health
