Can We Define A Model Of Metrics For Antibiotics and Resistance?

The NIAA Effort: Learning from the June RoundtableLearning From The NIAA Antibiotic June Roundtable Dr. Christopher Braden, Deputy Director, National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases, CDC, presents a model of metrics to understand the judicious use of antibiotics experience in human health. Dr. Braden outlines several metrics categories: antibiotic Use with prescription data, antibiotic stewardship with facility data, and antibiotic-resiatance trends and spread with microbiologic data. Dr. Braden highlights several example metric and reporting projects, like the community antibiotic prescribing rates per 1000 population in the United States [video].

What Are The Medically Important Antimicrobials in Animal Agriculture?

Medically Important Antimicrobials in Animal AgricultureMedically Important Antimicrobials in Animal Agriculture Dr. Michael Murphy, Veterinary Medical Officer, Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM), FDA, shares several policy and regulatory updates with respect to the Veterinary Feed Directive (VFD). Dr. Murphy leads with the changes being made and continues with listing drugs that are effected and those that are not, specifics of the VFD, and a timeline on when regulations will be implemented [video].

Is There An Antibiotic-Resistance Connection From Farm To Fork?

Drug-Resistant Foodborne Campylobacteriosis in Humans: Is There a Link to Antibiotic Use in Agricultural Animals?Drug-Resistant Foodborne Campylobacteriosis in Humans: Is There a Link to Antibiotic Use in Agricultural Animals? Dr. M.A. McCrackin, Charleston VA Medical Center Research Service and Medical University of South Carolina, brings to light a real example of antibiotic-resistance research. Her project looked antibiotic resistance and connection from farm to fork. Specially, Dr. McCrackin's team wanted to address the literature evidence for a link between antibiotics used in agricultural animals intended for food and antibiotic-resistant infections in humans. One of the key conclusions: on farm antibiotic treatments will increase the colonization of animals with antibiotic-resistant Campylobacter, and antibiotic-resistant Campylobacter can be transmitted to humans in raw animal products. But current literature is inadequately detailed to establish a causal relationship between antibiotic use in agricultural animals & antibiotic-resistant campylobacteriosis in humans [video].

2015 NIAA Water and the Future of Animal Agriculture
The 2015 NIAA Annual Conference: Water and the Future of Animal Agriculture, March 23 - March 26, 2015, Indianapolis, IN, USA, brought out conversations around the issues of water, the perceptions of agriculture by media, and what agriculture groups need to think about in their conversations with consumers, the public, and media.

This year, in cooperation with NIAA, Truffle Media and SwineCast have been allowed to share these important presentations with you.
