  From decades’ tuberculosis (TB) affecting individual and a huge number of people die every year. It causes ill-health among millions of individuals each year and ranks as the second leading cause of death from an infectious disease worldwide. The number of TB deaths has been unacceptably increased to a large extent and most cases are preventable if people get in time access to health care for a diagnosis and the right treatment. Multi-drug resistance is the fact that in TB patients are growing rapidly and difficult to treat. Treatment of MDR-TB is more complicated and longer than treatment of TB with no resistance. With advancements in the therapy of TB, now ideal treatments have been developed and many combination therapies are well recommended for MDR. The development of MDR-TB can be caused by a treatment that is inadequate, given the drug susceptibility pattern of the MTB strain. Few cohort studies provided information on treatment regimens and drug resistance profiles before treatment and at failure or recurrence or genotyping information at failure or recurrence. To monitor the development of acquired drug resistance, we suggest that given sufficient resources are available, TB treatment cohort studies or surveillance systems measure both the drug resistance profile and genotype information before starting treatment and at failure or recurrence. The emergence of MDR-TB and XDR-TB, the need for new TB drug regimens and rapid DST is intuiting globally. In future, more research with a focus on MDR and TB is required to avoid and counteract its associated complications.

  Green tea is an important herb and its products are extensively used in the traditional Chinese medicinal system through various formulations. Several reports have revealed its beneficial usage and medicinal aspects for various ailments. Consumption of green tea has gained special attention and popularity in various sectors of the modern era of changing lifestyle. This review aimed to extend the current knowledge on the modes of action and beneficial applications of green tea in humans and animals for safeguarding different health issues. The nutritional, immunological, pharmacological and physiological functionalities of green tea are because of the available bioactive components like caffeine, L-theanine, polyphenols/flavonoids and others. It possesses multi-beneficial potential in treating and preventing various disorders of animals and humans, as well as promoting animal (dairy, piggery and goatry) and poultry industry. The present review provides insights on the modes of action and beneficial applications of green tea, which will be useful for nutritionists, pharmacists, physiologists, researchers, veterinarians and animal and poultry producers. Future research emphasis and promotional avenues are needed to explore its potential therapeutic applications for designing appropriate pharmaceuticals, complementary medicines and effective drugs to popularize and propagate its multidimensional health benefits.

  In recent years, the ever increasing scientific knowledge and research advancements in science have provided a great awareness regarding the use of nanoparticles (NPs). NPs have drawn the researcher’s interest to explore new dimensions in biotechnology at large and nanotechnology, in particular, to combat antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and also to present other pharmacological potentialities. Finally, after decades of negligence, the AMR issue has now captured a worldwide attention of the global leaders, public health community, legalization authorities, academia, research-based organizations and medicinal sector of the modern world, alike. The antibiotics utilization has been expedited than ever before driven by increasing access, across the globe. The AMR emergence in microorganisms is considered as a natural phenomenon. However, this health-threatening issue has been driven by those mentioned above faulty human behavior. In this context, metallic nanoparticles (MNPs) are widely used or being engineered with unique potentialities for targetted applications in many fields of medical, engineering and science. Amongst noble metals, the superior attention has been given to silver nanoparticles. Traditionally, different chemical methods have been attempted but criticized due to various biological risks including toxicity that engendered a deep concern to develop some environmental-friendly processes. In this context, biological approaches using biological molecules derived from plant sources in the form of extracts displayed superiority over chemical and biological methods. These plant-based biological molecules undergo highly controlled assemblage to maintain the suitable size of nanoparticles. This critical review mainly focuses on the utilization of vast diversity of plants in the bio-inspired synthesis of silver nanoparticles as well as their potential applications as novel antimicrobial agents.
