Bacterial resistance is a condition whereby certain microorganisms are resistant to effects of drugs as they portray an inherent ability to withstand exposure to antibiotics. This state of affairs can thrive in conditions whereby a gene is shared and also develops resistance through a process of natural selection. These same genes can be relocated among bacteria in a horizontal manner through conjugation, transduction or transformation. It is reported that many of the resistant genes exist in on plasmids making it easy for the facilitation of propagation. The main cause for resistance is through application of medicine which can also include veterinary drugs. It has been discovered that resistance to the antibiotics increases with more exposure periods to the drugs (Bhutta, 2008)
