“E. coli from farmed rabbits in China exhibit very frequent AMR”
“The findings exhibit the molecular characterization of antimicrobial resistance in Escherichia coli from rabbit farms in Tai’an, China. The rabbits in farms are contaminated with MDR E. coli, which may originate from farms further up the food chain or from horizontal contamination.
The high detection rates of MDR E. coli, Class I integrons, and antibiotic-resistance genes suggested that measures should be taken to reduce the harm to public health, such as the reasonable use of antimicrobials in animal husbandry and culling the reservoirs of pathogens from the slaughter process.”
