[Published Pharma Letter - Jul 07 2014]


"The work undertaken so far at local and national level has led to Scotland being recognised worldwide as having an exemplar antimicrobial stewardship programme. ScotMARAP2 will build onon that and hopefully make us better placed to tackle the growing threat of antibiotic resistance.”"
"The case in Northern Ireland is still under investigation and it would be wrong to read too much into a single isolated case without a great deal more information" it added
"That this House recognises that the overuse of antibiotics in intensive farming adds to the serious public healthhealth threat from antibiotic resistance and the rise of superbugs; welcomes the Government's efforts to reduce over-prescribing by doctors; calls for parallel action to reduce the use of antibiotics by veterinary surgeons and farmers; and further calls on the Government to take steps to ensure that the routine prophylactic use of antibiotics on UK farms is phased out and that specific controls are introduced on the use in livestock of antibiotics that are critically important in human medicine."
"When washed, campylobacter from raw chicken can be transferred into water droplets, which may splash onto neighboring surfaces, hands, clothing, and cooking utensils. If the campylobacter bacteria are ingested directly or via unwashed cutting boards and utensils, they can cause campylobacteriosis, characterized by symptoms such as diarrhea, abdominal pain, cramping, and fever."
