Resevoirs of antimicrobial resistance

Houses of Parliament Parliamentary Office of Science & Technology | February 2019 | Resevoirs of antimicrobial resistance

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a natural phenomenon but the spread of antimicrobial resistance is exacerbated by the widespread, and sometimes
inappropriate, use of antimicrobials in both human and veterinary medicine.

A new POSTnote from the Houses of Parliament Parliamentary Office of Science & Technology covers:

  • the spread of AMR in humans and animals;
  • the main reservoirs of AMR;
  • data for AMR in both humans and animals; and
  • future UK priorities in this area.
