Final Report - PHAGEVET-P (Veterinary phage therapies as alternatives to antibiotics in poultry production)

Project ID: 7224
Funded under: FP6-FOOD


This is the final report of the PHAGEVET-P project which aimed at evaluating the potential use of phages as alternatives to antibiotics in poultry production and to characterise the efficacy of phages from farm-to-fork. The number of works published, including some reviews, clearly shows that the scientific community finally opened its mind to the tremendous potential of bacteriophages in the control of pathogenic or undesirable bacteria. The report includes images of testing and covers the methodologies used and justification. The report concludes with a summary of their results.
