Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is the capacity of microorganisms to resist medicines used to treat infections and represents a major global threat of increasing concern. Antimicrobial use in agriculture and farming contributes to the emergence of AMR, and food systems play an important role in its development and spread. Food can become contaminated with AMR bacteria carrying antimicrobial resistance genes (ARGs) at every stages of the food chain, serving as a vehicle of foodborne exposure to resistant bacteria.

Application of the PCR-based replicon typing (PBRT) method to trace antimicrobial resistance plasmids in the food chain

Abstract

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is the capacity of microorganisms to resist medicines used to treat infections and represents a major global threat of increasing concern. Antimicrobial use in agriculture and farming contributes to the emergence of AMR, and food systems play an important role in its development and spread. Food can become contaminated with AMR bacteria carrying antimicrobial resistance genes (ARGs) at every stages of the food chain, serving as a vehicle of foodborne exposure to resistant bacteria.
