Research paves way for tackling AMR in poultry

  06 September 2019

A new non-antibiotic antimicrobial treatment that could control the spread and development of antibiotic resistant pathogens in poultry is to be developed by UK-Chinese researchers.

UK company GAMA Healthcare, which supplies infection control products in hospitals, is partnering with Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC), CIEL – the UK’s livestock innovation centre, and Shanghai Veterinary Research Institute (SHVRI), to trial technology for use in poultry.

The technology, held by Aga Nanotech – a sister company to GAMA Healthcare, couples a cancer medicine delivery system with reactive, short-lived antiseptic compounds.
