The use of colistin and other critical antimicrobials on pig and chicken farms in southern Vietnam and their association with resistance in commensal Escherichia coli

Abstract:

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a global health problem; emerging semi-intensive farming systems in Southeast Asia are major contributors to the AMR burden. We accessed 12 pig and chicken farms at key stages of production in the Tien Giang province (Vietnam) to measure antimicrobial usage and to investigate the prevalence of AMR against five critical antimicrobials (β-lactams, 3(th)cephalosporins, quinolones, aminoglycosides and polymyxins) and their corresponding molecular mechanisms among...
