CDC moving on to on-farm antibiotics

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention held a conference last week to discuss antimicrobials and the possible evolving resistance. CDC officials discussed how the agency could interact with the agricultural and veterinary communities. The goal would be to enhance the surveillance, intervention and evaluation of antibiotic use and resistance in animals — specifically livestock.

The CDC has a program under development called “Get Smart, Know When Antibiotics Work on the Farm.” It’s similar to a program designed for antimicrobial use in people. It would promote appropriate use of antimicrobial agents in animals.
