Carriage Duration Of Colistin-Resistant Bacteria In Farming Community And Genetic Relatedness With Pathogenic Strains (COCOON)

This project aims to investigate the persistent colonisation of colistin-resistant bacteria (AMRB) in different farm settings and the genetic relationship of the AMR genes and strains isolated from farm-associated samples with those isolated from hospitals in Asia countries.

The use of antimicrobials (AMU) in livestock farming has been documented to have an impact on public health.

Admission of colistin for prevention and treatment of Enterobacteriaceae infection in chicken farming has become under scrutiny lately because this agent has been reintroduced in human medicine as a last resort for the treatment of Multidrug-resistant Gram (-) bacterial infection.
