To date, the selection of pathogens for R&D activities has been largely guided by small and large pharmaceutical companies according to a variety of parameters, such as perceived/unmet medical need, pressure of investors, market size, scientific discovery potential, and availability of specific technologies. Previous PPLs, issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC, Antibiotic Resistance Threats in the United States, 2013; http://www.cdc.gov/drugresistance/threat-report-2013/) and the Public Health Agency of Canada (PLoS One. 2015;10(4):1-11), focused on national public health priorities to increase scientific, political and public awareness without including specific R&D criteria …
