The banned use of antimicrobial growth promoters resulted in a considerably decreased use of antimicrobials in food animal production in Sweden (65%), Denmark (47%), Norway (40%) and Finland (27%). The current prevalence of antimicrobial resistance in animal bacterial populations is also considerably lower than in some other countries in the EU. In the swine production, no or limited effect was found in the finisher production (>25 to 30 kg). Temporary negative effects occurred during the post… 

Topics from this paper

Antimicrobial use in Belgian broiler production.
TLDR
Tylosin was underdosed in most of the administrations whereas amoxicillin and trimethoprim-sulphonamide were slightly overdosed in the average flock.
Rational Use of Antimicrobials in Animal Production:A Prerequisite to Stem the Tide of Antimicrobial Resistance
TLDR
In India, use of antimicrobials in food animals is limited for disease prophylaxis and growth promotion, however, absence of uniform regulations on the use of Antibiotics in animal production threatens the rationale use of these drugs in livestock.
Implications of Antimicrobial Agents as Therapeutics and Growth Promoters in Food Animal Production
TLDR
The need for alternatives to antimicrobial agents, such as bacteriophages, to preserve the safety of human food and to control the spread of zoonotic agents from animals to humans is demonstrated.
Quantitative assessment of antimicrobial resistance in livestock during the course of a nationwide antimicrobial use reduction in the Netherlands.
TLDR
Data suggest that recent Dutch policies aimed at reducing total use of antimicrobials have decreased E. coli resistance in the pig and veal calf production sectors while the impact on the dairy cattle and poultry sectors is less clear.
Antibiotic resistance in the food chain : a case study of Campylobacter spp. in poultry.
TLDR
In the absence of any surveillance programme on food-borne bacteria in South Africa, this study focussed on Campylobacter spp.
Advantages of Bacillus-based probiotics in poultry production
TLDR
This review focuses on the unique beneficial characteristics of Bacillus spp.
Occurrence and spread of antibiotic-resistant bacteria on animal farms and in their vicinity in Poland and Ukraine—review
TLDR
The review focuses on the presence of potentially pathogenic and antimicrobial-resistant zoonotic bacteria and antimacterial genes in the environment of farms and food of animal origin in Poland and Ukraine and the risk of antibiotic-resistant bacteria transmission.
Antimicrobial use in Swedish farrow-to-finish pig herds is related to farmer characteristics
TLDR
Investigation of Swedish pig farms found factors that influenced antimicrobial usage were more related to characteristics of the individual farmer and his/her staff than to biosecurity level, other management factors or farmers’ attitudes to antimicrobials.
Allium-Based Phytobiotic Enhances Egg Production in Laying Hens through Microbial Composition Changes in Ileum and Cecum
TLDR
Garlic and onion extracts, rich in antimicrobial compounds, are of the most promising alternative to antibiotics in poultry and livestock due to their antimicrobial activity and its positive effects on gut microbiota and productive properties.
High dietary zinc feeding promotes persistence of multi-resistant E. coli in the swine gut
TLDR
The findings corroborate the previous report linking high dietary zinc feeding of piglets with the occurrence of antimicrobial resistant E. coli and therefore question the feeding of high Dietary zinc oxide as alternative to antimicrobial growth promoters.

TLDR
The AMGP ban has shown that under good production conditions it is possible to reach good and competitive production results for the rearing of poultry, calves, and pigs without the continuous use of AMGP, and the total use of antibacterial drugs to animals in Sweden decreased by approximately 55% during the last 13 years, and a relatively low prevalence of antimicrobial resistance has been maintained.
Usage of veterinary therapeutic antimicrobials in Denmark, Norway and Sweden following termination of antimicrobial growth promoter use.
TLDR
Termination of AGPs was only a temporary risk factor for increased usage of therapeutic antimicrobials in food-animals in Sweden and Denmark; however, an exception might be usage in weaning piglets in Denmark.
The effect of antimicrobial growth promoter withdrawal on the health of weaned pigs in Finland.
TLDR
The level of antimicrobial use for treatment of diarrhoea after weaning (and the incidence of diarrhea in weaned piglets) did not increase significantly after the withdrawal of AGPs from weaner feeds according to farmers' evaluations.
Antimicrobial susceptibility of Swedish, Norwegian and Danish isolates of Clostridium perfringens from poultry, and distribution of tetracycline resistance genes.
TLDR
The uniform susceptibility to narasin revealed in this study shows that the substance can still be used to control clostridiosis, and C. perfringens also showed a low degree of resistance to most other antimicrobials tested.
Susceptibility of Clostridium perfringens strains from broiler chickens to antibiotics and anticoccidials
Clostridium perfringens strains isolated in 2002 from the intestines of broiler chickens from 31 different farms located in Belgium were tested for susceptibility to 12 antibiotics used for therapy,

TLDR
The only demonstrable positive effect of tetracycline supplement was a tendency twwards better health during the period of administration of the drug (Table II...
Molecular typing of isolates of Clostridium perfringens from healthy and diseased poultry.
TLDR
C. perfringens isolates from healthy and diseased poultry from different parts of Sweden were analysed by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in order to establish the presence of alpha-, beta-, beta2-, epsilon -, iota- and enterotoxin genes.
The European Agency for the Evaluation of Medicinal Products
TLDR
Patients with rheumatoid arthritis who received concurrent Kineret (anakinra) and Enbrel (etanercept) showed a higher incidence of serious infection and of neutropenia than patients receiving EnBrel alone and higher than observed in previous trials where Kinerets was used alone.
Perméabilité membranaire et résistance aux antibiotiques chez les bactéries à gram négatif
TLDR
Les porines situees dans la membrane externe and les pompes d'efflux qui forment des complexes proteiques intra- et intermembranaires sont parmi les voies principales de ce transport.
