Antimicrobial resistance clusters in commensal Escherichia coli from livestock

  21 January 2021

To combat antimicrobial resistance (AMR), policymakers need an overview of evolution and trends of AMR in relevant animal reservoirs, and livestock is monitored by susceptibility testing of sentinel organisms such as commensal E. coli. Such monitoring data are often vast and complex and generates a need for outcome indicators that summarize AMR for multiple antimicrobial classes. Model‐based clustering is a data‐driven approach that can help to objectively summarize AMR in animal reservoirs.
