Poultry Probiotic To Tackle Global Disease In Anti-Biotic Fight

A probiotic aimed at eliminating a disease which costs the world poultry industry $6 billion a year is being developed by a Lincoln/China collaboration in the fight against a global antibiotic crisis.

The disease – Clostridium perfringens – is currently controlled with antibiotics. But there is growing pressure to stop this method in the face of a rise in antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in humans.

Dr Ron Dixon, a microbiologist at the University of Lincoln, UK, and Dr Joseph Brown from Arden Biotechnology, are working with the Jiangsu Academy of Agricultural Sciences in China to develop the probiotic.
