Impact of Antimicrobials use in chickens on emergence of drug-resistant Campylobacter organisms in humans
AbstractThe objective of this review is to present the impact of uncontrolled use of antimicrobialagents in chicken husbandry on emergence of drug-resistant Campylobacterin humans. The absence of an Antimicrobial Resistance Monitoring System(ARMS) in most developing countries of the world, amidst trade’s globalization ofanimals and animal products, helped in the recent decade in spreading of drugresistantorganisms across the world’s food chains.The emergence of drug resistance in Campylobacter organisms was associated withtheir transmission from animals and their products to humans. This transmissionof drug-resistant Campylobacter resulted in serious failure of treatment regimensprescribed to infected humans.
