Integrated Surveillance for Antimicrobial Resistance in Salmonella From Clinical and Retail Meat Sources Reveals Genetically Related Isolates Harboring Quinolone- and Ceftriaxone-Resistant Determinants

  30 August 2021

Antimicrobial resistance in foodborne pathogens, including nontyphoidal Salmonella (NTS), is a public health concern. Pennsylvania conducts integrated surveillance for antimicrobial resistance in NTS from human and animal sources.

A significant proportion of NTS isolates from human and animal sources were multidrug resistant and 16% had genetic mechanisms that confer resistant to ceftriaxone. These results emphasize need for integrated surveillance in healthcare and agricultural settings.
