Public Health - Antibiotics & Resistance
Strategy to preserve efficacies of antimicrobials against important swine pathogens
Naturally occurring efflux pump inhibitors have been shown to significantly inhibit the activity of efflux pumps contributing to antimicrobial resistance by many bacteria, particularly against...
Public Health - Antibiotics & Resistance
Influence of grass hedges on the transport of antimicrobials, antimicrobial resistance genes, and antimicrobial resistant pathogens after land application of swine manure
Pork production is a significant component of the US economy. Swine manure has commonly been applied to land as a soil amendment for crop production, as it provides a valuable source of nutrients...
Public Health - Antibiotics & Resistance
Occurrence and Movement of Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria and Resistance Genes in Tile-Drained Agricultural Fields Receiving Swine Manure Application
The use of antibiotics by the swine industry to increase production efficiency and treat disease is thought to contribute to antibiotic resistance in the environment. When manure from hog operations...

Factors driving the emergence and persistence of multidrug resistance-encoding plasmids in the swine environment
 This study examined the impact of subtherapeutic and therapautic levels of chlortetracycline in feed on the selection and dissemination...
Public Health - Antibiotics & Resistance
Critical appraisal of evidence that low-dose, long term (growth promotion) antimicrobial use augments public health risks from antimicrobial resistant organisms
Antimicrobials are important tools for ensuring the health, welfare and productivity of pigs raised for food. Banning of antimicrobial growth promotant use in Denmark, and subsequently more widely in...

Occurrence and Movement of Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria and Resistance Genes in Tile-Drained Agricultural Fields Receiving Swine Manure Application
The use of antibiotics by the swine industry to increase production efficiency and treat disease is thought to contribute to antibiotic resistance in the environment. When manure from hog operations...
Public Health - Antibiotics & Resistance
Influence of on-site manure storage and land application strategy on the fate and transport of antimicrobials and antimicrobial resistance genes in the environment
The objective of this study was to evaluate the role of manure storage on antimicrobial and antimicrobial resistance (AMR) genes in swine manure and to quantify the transport of these constituents in...

Impact of ceftiofur use on the dissemination of resistant enteric bacteria in finishing swine populations
The antibiotics Exceed and Excenel are two formulations of the cephalosporin drug ceftiofur that are commonly used to treat finishing pigs in the US. Our object was to understand the relationship...
Public Health - Antibiotics & Resistance
Detection of tetracyclines and tetracycline resistant bacteria in soils under long-term swine effluent application
These days, there are increasing concerns that the use of veterinary antibiotics could enhance persistence of antibiotic resistant bacteria...
