Use antibiotics effectively to reduce drug-resistance

Antimicrobial resistance has been recognized as a serious public health issue WHO Releases Official Guidelines on Use of Antibiotics in Livestock

November 13th kicks off World Antibiotics Awareness Week, and Allen County Public Health wants to remind people to "Be Antibiotics Aware" when using them.

Among the WHO's the highest priority antibiotics are quinolones, 3rd and higher generation cephalosporins, macrolides and ketolides, glycopeptides and polymyxins (also known as colistin).

"[These] are practical steps that would promote prudent use of antimicrobials in the region", explained Ms. Kadiresan.

Any new class of antimicrobials or new antimicrobial combination developed for use in humans will be considered critically important for human medicine unless categorised otherwise by WHO. "Antimicrobial veterinary medicines are a crucial tool for animal health and welfare and safe food production, but they are by no means the only tool".

"A lot of times people come in expecting physicians in here to prescribe antibiotics for their cold symptoms", says Nguyen. In its statement World Health Organization says that healthy animals should only receive antibiotics to prevent disease if it has been diagnosed in other animals in the same flock, herd or fish population.

General Electric Company (GE) Can't Be More Risky. Just Reaches Yearly Low
But investors have suspected a dividend cut was on the horizon after General Electric's third quarter earnings missed the mark. Profund Advisors Ltd Liability owns 10,540 shares for 0.01% of their portfolio. 9,122 are held by West Coast Limited Company.

"Overuse of antibiotics can cause bacteria to become resistant, meaning current treatments will no longer work", he said.

Health Department's pharmaceutical services standard branch (PSSB) manager, Vali Karo, is calling on the public to stop buying antibiotics from the streets and unauthorised shops in the country. The Agency cited research published in The Lancet Planetary Health that found interventions that restrict antibiotic use in food-producing animals reduced antibiotic-resistant bacteria in those animals by up to 39 percent.

Using novel experimental approaches, involving whole genome DNA sequencing never previously applied in this area of research, the team identified mechanisms or "strategies" that bacteria use to protect themselves from antibiotics. For example, since 2006, the European Union has banned the use of antibiotics for growth promotion.

Alternative options to using antibiotics for disease prevention in animals include improving hygiene, better use of vaccination, and changes in animal housing and husbandry practices.

Antibiotic resistance is one of the biggest threats to global health.
