Strategic Science Initiative on Antimicrobial Reduction in Animal Production

The increase in antibiotic resistance and the emergence of new resistance mechanisms that threaten the ability to treat common infectious diseases -such as tuberculosis, pneumonia or sepsis- entail a great socio-economic burden due to the high costs of treatment and, in the specific case of animals, due to the decrease in their productivity.

To avoid a post-antibiotic scenario, IRTA is working intensively on the development of holistic strategies that contribute to eliminate inadequate practices to reduce the risk of zoonotic diseases and offer diagnostic tools and alternative management and treatment strategies (such as new vaccines or development and validation of rapid detection methods).
