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].
