STAR-IDAZ IRC Workshop: Alternatives to antibiotics acting directly on the pathogen, including mode of action (focus on Phage Technologies)
STAR-IDAZ IRC working group on alternatives to antibiotics: one of a series of five virtual workshops.
Joint 4 Projects Flyer Key themes of the 5th International Conference on Responsible Use of Antibiotics in Animals include: • addressing antimicrobial use and resistance at global, regional and national levels • antimicrobial resistance and the human-animal-environment interface • reducing antibiotic use in animals – barriers and prospects • towards sustainable solutions for antibiotic use […]
An international team of researchers has shown that antimicrobial-resistant infections are rapidly increasing in animals in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). The team, led by Thomas Van Boeckel, SNF Assistant Professor of Health Geography and Policy at ETH Zurich, has published a map of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in the journal Science. The team of researchers […]
A new research project aims to improve the health of farmed chickens in China and reduce the risk of disease and antibiotic resistance transferring to human populations. The FARMWATCH project will use machine learning to find new ways to identify and pinpoint disease in poultry farms, reducing the need for antibiotic treatment and lowering the […]
In a paper published in The Lancet Planetary Health, scientists from the University of Liverpool and the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) show that urban wildlife in Nairobi carry a high burden of clinically relevant antimicrobial resistant (AMR) bacteria, resistant to recently developed drugs that the World Health Organisation deems critically important to human medicine. […]
Global leaders in animal health discussed new ideas and solutions to the rise of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) at a three-day event hosted by The World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE). The 2nd Global Conference on Antimicrobial Resistance and Prudent Use of Antimicrobial Agents in Animals (Marrakesh, Morocco, 29-31 October 2018) highlighted the need for cross-sector, […]
