Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) research in AVC

            Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is the ability of a microorganism such as bacteria, viruses, and parasites to stop an antimicrobial drugs (such as antibiotics, antivirals and antiparasites) from working against it. As a result, common treatments become ineffective and infections remain and spread to others, the cost of treatment is increased and the number of deaths due to AMR significantly rise. Although antimicrobial resistance occurs naturally over time via genetic changes (AMR gene), the misuse and overuse of antimicrobials is accelerating this process. In many places, antibiotics are overused and misused in people and animals, and often given without professional oversight. Antimicrobial resistant-microbes can be found in people, animals, food, and the environment, they can spread among them. Poor infection control, inadequate sanitary conditions and inappropriate food-handling encourage the spread of antimicrobial resistance. Therefore AMR is an increasingly serious threat to global public health that requires action across all government sectors and society. At AVC, our researchers involve in many AMR projects, we study AMR in many species (both domestic and wildlife animals) and perform the research in antibiotic alternatives including probiotics and herbs for animal application.
