One of the top priorities addressed by the European Union in these years is the anti-microbial resistance, both in animals and in human beings.

This week, EFSA has just published an opinion based on the assessment of diseases in poultry caused by bacteria resistant to antimicrobials.

The assessment – based on information collected by an extensive literature review and expert judgement – identified the bacteria with the most relevant antimicrobial resistance, based on the available evidence: the animal health impact of them will be assessed in separated scientific opinions.

More information and the opinion are available here.
