Long-term, low-dose administration may well be more dangerous in this respect than the short, high-dose regimens normally used in therapy if it gives bacteria the chance to acquire additional mutations that cause a resistance gene to be more stably maintained. Finally, it is becoming clear there is no single ecology of resistance but rather multiple ecologies that may overlap. In one case, a single resistant clone may arise and spread widely. In another case, multiple resistant strains may have arisen on separate occasions as a result of horizontal gene transfer.

Bacteriostatic antibiotics disrupt bacterial multiplication, but the bacteria recover after removal of the antibiotic. As mentioned above, most antibiotic inhibitors of translation (also transcription, replication, or other biosynthetic process) lead to bacterial stasis. As in the case of bactericidal antibiotics, a number of events of DNA metabolism, as well as DNA transactions, can still occur in these states of suspended growth. Therefore, although susceptible bacteria apparently are inhibited by the action of the static drug, there are underlying genetic and biochemical processes taking place that may ultimately overcome growth inhibition.
