Plaudits for antibiotic resistance tracking system
A surveillance approach for antimicrobial resistance among people and their livestock, co-developed and piloted by Roslin Institute scientists, has been hailed as a success story following an international meeting.
The multi-disciplinary method is designed to highlight links between infections, and resistance to antibiotic treatment, in people and animals in communities in low- and middle-income countries, which are disproportionally affected by antimicrobial resistance (AMR).
The approach could give valuable insight into how infection spreads between people and livestock in a community environment, and the timescales involved.
