Big data and models: Are they really useful in disease management?Big data and models: Are they really useful in disease management? Dr. Jim Lowe, University of Illinois, looks at big data and asks if they are really useful in animal health. Dr. Lowe suggests that animal agriculture is a very complicated and confusing set of systems with variations in many sub-areas, for example biological, mechanical, and human behavior. Dr. Lowe shares how animal agriculture has lots of data and how data can be collected in a systematic fashion to help improve animal health [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].
