REDUCTION OF ANTIBIOTICS BY THE CONTROL OF RESISTANT AND NON-RESISTANT GRAM-NEGATIVE BACTERIA. 

In the pig husbandry, antibiotics are still used to prevent and control infections. Bacterial infections are often related to E.coli and Salmonella infections; within those groups, also many multi-resistant pathogens are present.  To further reduce the...

USE OF ANTIMICROBIALS IN FINNISH SWINE FARMS AND ITS ASSOCIATION WITH ON-FARM BIOSECURITY

We need to find effective tools for disease prevention in animal production, and evaluate farms’ disease status to ensure animal welfare and public health. Moreover, there is need to reduce antimicrobial usage (AMU) because of increasing emergence of...

OCCURRENCE OF CHINOLON-RESISTANT E. COLI IN ENVIRONMENTAL SAMPLES FROM PIG FARMS  

Fluorchinolones are classified by the WHO as highest priority critically important antimicrobials in human medicine. Therefore their use in veterinary medicine should be limited. As fluorchinolones are little metabolised in animals and excreted in feaces...

ANDROSTENONE AND TESTOSTERONE CONCENTRATIONS IN DIFFERENT MATERIALS COLLECTED AT SLAUGHTER FROM ENTIRE, IMMUNOCASTRATED AND PHYSICALLY CASTRATED MALE...

Boar taint is primarily caused by accumulation of androstenone and skatole in the adipose tissue from male pigs. Androstenone production is closely linked to gonadal steroids, mainly testosterone. The aim of the present study was to compare androstenone...

INFLUENCE OF DIFFERENT VACCINATION STRATEGIES AGAINST SALMONELLA TYPHIMURIUM IN PIG FARMS ON EXCRETION AND SEROLOGY AT SLAUGHTER AGE

Vaccination against Salmonella Typhimurium (ST) might be effective to control Salmonella infections at farm level, but may affect the herd’s serological status. The present study investigated the effect of different vaccination strategies against ST on...

The relationship between antimicrobial use, antimicrobial resistance and health and biosecurity status in Canadian growfinish swine herds

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a global threat to public health. The Canadian Integrated Program for Antimicrobial Resistance Surveillance (CIPARS) is a national integrated program dedicated to the collection, integration, analysis, and communication of trends in antimicrobial use (AMU) and AMR in selected bacteria from humans, animals, and food sources across Canada.

Impact of vaccination on the consumption of antimicrobials in Danish weaners, 2013

The development of antimicrobial resistance due to use of antimicrobials (AM) in livestock production is increasingly causing public concern. Vaccination might be an alternative to use of AM in some instances. One hypothesis could be that herds that purchase vaccines use them to prevent disease and consequently have lower AM consumption than herds purchasing fewer or no vaccines against these pathogens.
