Special Issue "Antimicrobial Resistance in Pathogens Isolated from Animals"
A special issue of Antibiotics (ISSN 2079-6382).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 May 2020).
Monitoring of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in animals is currently focussed on zoonotic and commensal bacteria from food animals in line with the One Health approach for fighting against AMR. Nevertheless, antimicrobials are used in animals for treating conditions produced by pathogenic animal bacteria and consequently, monitoring of AMR in these bacteria is also needed for proper understanding the AMR landscape and for helping veterinarians treating sick animals.
Discrepancies in methodology (disk based versus dilution methods) and, especially, low availability of specific animal clinical breakpoints for the interpretation of antimicrobial susceptibility testing results hamper the comparative analysis of published data and should be highlighted.
This Special Issue seeks manuscript submissions that could improve antimicrobial susceptibility testing of bacterial pathogens of animal origin, including proposals for establishment of animal-specific clinical breakpoints and harmonization of methods. Submissions reporting data of AMR monitoring in both food and companion animals are also welcome.
