Podcasts are a perfect way to get caught up with new swine information! We are presenting you the latest episode from “At The Meeting… Honoring Dr. Bob Morrison” in collaboration with SwineCast.
In this new episode, our hosts invited Dr. Maria Clavijo from Iowa State University Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory and Dr. Adam Schelkopf from Pipestone Services to discuss the various new diagnostic techniques to identify differences in Streptococcus suis strains.
On this Monday morning, we would like to share with you this article published in Research in Veterinary Science by PhD-candidate Shivdeep Hayer advised by Dr. Julio Alvarez. The peer-reviewed publication is a summary of antimicrobial resistances (AMR) in swine respiratory isolates between 2006 and 2016.
AMR data for bacterial swine pathogens associated with Swine Respiratory Disease Complex are lacking
AMR data on swine bacterial pathogens collected over 11 years in the U.S.A was analyzed for changes in AMR prevalence
AMR in S. suis and P. multocida isolates mostly remained low
There were statistically significant changes in AMR in A. suis and H. parasuis
Use of surrogate breakpoints can lead to different AMR estimates for certain bacteria
