Questions on antimicrobial resistance

Questions on antimicrobial resistance

Antimicrobial resistance is a major public health issue in France: resistance to antibiotics calls into question the efficacy of treatments for infections occurring in humans and animals alike. At its annual symposium on this issue, ANSES will be presenting the result of its two reports on national trends in resistance in animals (Resapath report) and sales of veterinary antimicrobials.

Multi-country outbreak of Listeria monocytogenes sequence type 8 infections linked to consumption of salmon products

Multi-country outbreak of Listeria monocytogenes sequence type 8 infections linked to consumption of salmon products

Published on: Thu, 25 Oct 2018 00:00:00 +0200 A multi-country outbreak of 12 listeriosis cases caused by Listeria monocytogenes sequence type (ST) 8 has been identified through whole genome sequencing (WGS) analysis in three EU/EEA countries: Denmark (6 cases), Germany (5) and France (1). Four of these cases have died due to or with the disease. It is likely that the extent of this outbreak has been underestimated since the outbreak was identified through sequencing and only a subset of the EU/EEA count...

Use of next‐generation sequencing in microbial risk assessment

Published on: Mon, 27 Aug 2018 00:00:00 +0200 Despite the ever increase in rigorous control and monitoring measures to assure safe food along the entire farm‐to‐fork chain, the past decade has also witnessed an increase in microbial food alerts. Hence, research on food safety and quality remain of utmost importance. Complementary, and at least as important, is the necessity to be able to assess the potential microbial risks along the food chain. Risk assessment relies on sound scientific data. Unfortuna...

Risk assessment of antimicrobial resistance along the food chain through culture‐independent methodologies

Published on: Mon, 27 Aug 2018 00:00:00 +0200 Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) represents a major challenge for Public Health and the scientific community, and requires immediate and drastic solutions. Acquired resistance to certain antimicrobials is already widespread to such an extent that their efficacy in the treatment of certain life‐threatening infections is already compromised. To date, the emergence and spread of AMR has been attributed to the use, misuse or indiscriminate use of antibiotics as th...

Published on: Mon, 27 Aug 2018 00:00:00 +0200 EFSA regards the household as a stage in the food chain that is important for the final number of food‐borne infections. The fate of a pathogen in the private kitchen largely depends on consumer hygiene during preparation of food and on its proper cooking, especially in the case of meat. Unfortunately, detailed information on the microbiological survival in meat products after heating in the consumer kitchen is lacking. The aim of the study was to improve th...

Scientific guideline: Reflection paper on dose optimisation of established veterinary antibiotics in the context of summary of product characteristics (SPC) harmonisation, draft: consultation open

Established veterinary antibiotics are not always used at the authorised dose, and the dose may need to be reviewed in order to maintain their effectiveness whilst limiting the risks of antimicrobial resistance. Before a new dose is introduced, the company would typically have to conduct new studies to ensure it does not negatively affect the safety of the target animal, the consumer of animal produce, or the environment. This may reduce product availability, which could have a negative impact on antimic...
