Antibiotic alternatives may be the solution to the antibiotic resistance problem. Antibiotic resistance is increasing day by day over the world and this will cause a dramatic danger to human civilization. It is now suspected that millions of people will die due to the increasing antibiotic resistance by 2050. Therefore, this increased resistance emphasizes the researchers to find new antimicrobial agents for combating microbial diseases.
