Abstract

Neomycin, an aminoglycoside, is use at farm level for Escherichia coli treatment of piglets postweaning diarrhea, with 40% of unsuccessfully treatment due to the antimicrobial resistance. To overcome this situation, veterinarians use colistin also call polymyxin E. but this antibiotic is not homologated in Canada, even if it seems to be effective against E. Coli.

InVitro characterization of colistin resistance and transfer of neomycin resistance in Escherichia coli O149 strains

Portland, Maine, USA

Neomycin, an aminoglycoside, is use at farm level for Escherichia coli treatment of piglets postweaning diarrhea, with 40% of unsuccessfully treatment due to the antimicrobial resistance. To overcome this situation, veterinarians use colistin also call polymyxin E. but this antibiotic is not homologated in Canada, even if it seems to be effective against E. Coli.
