...meat and poultry products, and human cases of foodborne illness and analyzes them for trends in antibiotic resistance," the lawmakers wrote. "This important data allows the CDC, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the Department of Agriculture to accelerate their response to emerging public health threats. However, due to historic underfunding - only $7.8 million in FY 2014 - NARMS can only conduct sampling of retail meat in 14 states. The FDA informs us that this level of funding restricts the agency's ability to study trends in antibiotic resistance."
"Low doses of antibiotics should be prescribed when needed. Only if the patient is not getting better should the stronger antibiotics be used. Also, it is very important to finish the antibiotic course given by the doctor to avoid the disease being dormant in the body. When this happens, the next time the antibiotic will not be effective and a stronger one would be needed" he said
"If the course is not finished, it will become a resistance factor as the body did not get the optimal dose to kill the bacteria" she said
"Increasing the funding for NARMS to $15 million will greatly enhance the program and improve the FDA's ability to study antibiotic resistance, the letter said. "Specifically, providing more funding will allow the FDA to increase the number of samples the agency collects, increase the number of states in which sampling is conducted, and implement advanced molecular detection to improve the agency's analysis of antibiotic resistant pathogens.""
