AMR Industry Alliance reports breakthroughs in the responsible manufacturing of antibiotics and positive steps to improve how patients access and use antibiotics. But its report also highlights concerning levels of research and development (R&D) investment.

GENEVA -Thursday 16 January 2020 [ AETOS Wire ]

KAL’s new Kalignite Hypervisor solution, in partnership with Red Hat, is a game-changing solution that allows banks to break free from enforced, costly and disruptive ATM hardware upgrades.
