"During the last 60 years the development of effective and safe drugs to deal with bacterial infections has revolutionised medical treatment, and the morbidity and mortality from microbial disease have been dramatically reduced."

Pharmacology (4th edition) by Rang, Dale and Ritter.

Extract 4:

In the 4th edition of their textbook Pharmacology (1999) Rang, Dale and Ritter state that "During the last 60 years the development of effective and safe drugs to deal with bacterial infections has revolutionised medical treatment, and the morbidity and mortality from microbial disease have been dramatically reduced" (1). Such a bold assertion understates the ongoing threat posed by microbial infection. It is estimated, for example, that wordwide there were 8 million cases of tuberculosis in 1998 (2).
