The use and abuse of antibiotics in several systems for human and animal therapy, in industrial and agricultural application have induced into the spead in different environmental habitats an accumulation of high level/concentration of such agents. These compounds caused alteration of the natural microbial balance by the suppressiveness of great number of positive non-pathogenic bacteria and the increase in the amount of negative drug resistant pathogenic bacteria. Antibiotic resistance is the ability of bacteria to be or become resistant to antibiotics, thus managing to survive and multiply even in the presence of the drug. This is a public health problem at European and global level, due to the excessive and improper use of these drugs. The alarm is recurrent! In 2012, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the European Center for Prevention and Control of Diseases reported that there was an increase in Europe of resistance in Gram negative pathogens such as Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The data of the most recent WHO report 2017 and of the European Center for the Control of Infectious Diseases (ECDC) state that due to the resistance of bacteria to antibiotics there are over 671,000 cases of infection, to which 33,000 deaths are attributable
