A cross sectional study of Associating Clinical and Radiological Dissimilarities in HIV Positive and HIV Negative Patients with Tuberculosis in KPK,Pakistan

Microbial production of secondary metabolites and especially those with therapeutic importance, such as “antibiotics”, have been given significant attention worldwide regarding their role in the management of infectious disease. Nowadays, the antibiotic resistance is increasing dramatically and the discovery of new drugs from microbial sources represents a major challenge among the researches. Antibiotics are low molecular-weight molecules produced as secondary metabolites, mainly by microorganisms that live in the soil. Actinomycetes, mainly Streptomyces species, are well-known for bioactive compounds production.
