It is hoped that the application of Codes of Practice for the use of such agents will result in a widespread reduction in the incidence of drug-resistant salmonellas in food production animals and humans on an international scale.
Epidemic in cattle and humans of Salmonella typhimurium DT 104 with chromosomally integrated multiple drug resistance
Multidrug-resistant Salmonella typhi: a worldwide epidemic.
It is regrettable that resistance to ciprofloxacin has now emerged in MDR S. typhi, and it is of paramount importance to limit the unnecessary use of this vital drug so that its efficacy should not be further jeopardized.

The techniques described here offer simple methods which can be easily utilized in laboratories without a specialized expertise for Listeria monocytogenes, and were sufficiently stable to be useful for epidemiological investigations.
Clonal lines of Salmonella enterica serotype Enteritidis documented by IS200-, ribo-, pulsed-field gel electrophoresis and RFLP typing.
With the combined use of four genotypic methods, two groups of strains, representing eight and seven of 33 Enteritidis phage types, were formed; these two groups may be considered as the main evolutionary lines of Enter itidis.
Longitudinal Farm Study of Extended-Spectrum β-Lactamase-Mediated Resistance
Results indicate that horizontal plasmid transfer between strains as well as horizontal gene transfer between plasmids have contributed to the spread of resistance.
Antimicrobial resistance in typhoidal and nontyphoidal salmonellae
Patterns of resistance in Salmonella are constantly changing, and Continual surveillance of resistance levels is critical for clinicians to keep abreast of treatment options, but it is often lacking in resource-poor regions of the world with the highest disease burden.
Molecular epidemiology of antibiotic resistance genes in multiresistant epidemic Salmonella typhimurium DT 104.
The epidemiology of antibiotic resistance genes in epidemic multiresistant S. typhimurium DT 104 of human and animal origin was investigated. DNA prepared from 45 human and 21 animal strains isolated…
