Antimicrobial Resistance on the Rise in Zoonotic Bacteria in Europe

JAMA. 2019;321(15):1448. doi:10.1001/jama.2019.3829

Experts continue to find zoonotic bacteria with high levels of antimicrobial resistance in humans, animals, and food, according to a new report from the European Food Safety Authority and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control.

Their work shows that the antimicrobials used to treat zoonotic diseases, which humans can contract through environmental exposure to infected animals or by eating contaminated meat, have grown less effective over time.
