Alternatives to Veterinary ANTimicrobials

Project description

Substituting antibiotics in livestock

Veterinary use of antimicrobials poses a threat to human health because of the possible transfer of resistant bacteria to people. AVANT aims at developing and testing the efficacy and sustainability of alternatives to antimicrobials for the management of pig enteritis, as this disease condition accounts for the majority of antimicrobials used in food animals. The alternatives under study include gut microbiome modulators, innovative medicines targeting the pathogen or the pig immune response, and feeding strategies for disease prevention. Based on the results of pre-clinical studies, including regulatory considerations, the efficacy of the most promising interventions will be assessed by farm trials. Mathematical modelling will be used to predict the effects of these interventions on reduction of antimicrobial use.
