Responsible antibiotic use in pork production is a shared responsibility among pork producers, veterinarians, feed mills and suppliers. As producers, we play an important role in the shared effort to use antibiotics responsibly to help minimize the potential emergence of antibiotic resistance bacteria and to maintain effective antibiotics for animal and human health. On January 1st 2017 the Food and Drug Administration’s new guidelines for on-farm antibiotic use take affect for all sectors of animal agriculture. These changes will eliminate the use of medically important antibiotics for growth promotion in food-animal production. Medically important antibiotics are antibiotics that are the same or are in the same classes of antibiotics that are used to treat human infections. As a result, the regulations for medically important feed-grade antibiotics and those deemed necessary by the FDA, along with the prescription rule for medically-important water-administered antibiotics, will limit the use of antibiotics to treat, control and prevent specific diseases under the guidance of a veterinarian. These rules will require specific actions take place on the farm and additional record keeping for producers, veterinarians, feed mills and suppliers. Being ready involves understanding the new feed and water medication rules, strengthening veterinary-client-patient relationships or VCPRs, being in communication with feed suppliers, assessing herd health and welfare strategies and assuring all record-keeping practices are compliant with the new FDA guidelines as outlined in the PQA Plus training. All the information producers need to make the transition can be found on-line at the Antibiotics Resource Center by going to pork.org/antibiotics. A pork producer’s ability to be ready on January 1st, 2017 demonstrates the pork industry’s commitment to protect the health of the public and our pigs, while keeping food safe.

Drug or medication interactions can happen to anyone taking medicines. This weeks video is about why drugs interact and avoiding them. All my patients seem to know the rule about not drinking when you're on antibiotics - the trouble is, it isn't a rule! In fact, it's safe to drink some alcohol when you're taking most kinds of antibiotics (the antibiotic you should never drink with is metronidazole, also known as Flagyl®). Yet there are many possible interactions between commonly prescribed medicines with other medicines, supplements and even food that very few people seem to have heard of. So this weeks video will explain why they happen, and what everyone should do to avoid them. This video was sponsored by Dr Fox (Online Doctor & Pharmacy): https://www.doctorfox.co.uk HOW TO MINIMISE THE RISK OF INTERACTIONS: It isn't realistic to expect patients to memorise every possible interaction for every medication. But the following tips can go a long way in reducing problems: 1. Know why you are taking each medication Drug names are often hard to pronounce, difficult to remember, and easy to mix up. An error when you list your drugs could mean a potential interaction will go unnoticed. However, if you tell a health care professional that you're taking a medication followed by why you take it, he or she is more likely to realise what medication you take. 2. Know how to take the drug It's important to learn whether to take your medication with food, on an empty stomach or to avoid certain types of food at the same time you take the medication. If you’re not taking the medication correctly it can reduce the absorption and effectiveness or even cause irritation of your stomach lining. 3. Pharmacies don't have access to your medical records Let your pharmacy know all the medication you take. Pharmacies don’t have access to your medical records when dispensing. So if you’ve been started on any new medication let the pharmacist know when they give you your medication. They can then give you any useful tips that will help you get the most out of your medicines 4. Supplements, herbal remedies and over the counter medicines also interact with medication. Some of the most serious drug interactions involve prescription medications and supplements or herbal remedies. If you're purchasing these then it's likely that your healthcare professional will not be aware you are taking them. Always include these in your medication list when giving a medication history. 5. Talk to your pharmacist I always ask patients to bring in all their medicines, so either a list or actually bring them into the pharmacy. This includes the prescribed medicines, over the counter medicines, supplements, herbal remedies, creams....basically everything. Your pharmacist can then sit down with you, look at them and identify any potential interactions between them. They can then give you the best advice to get the most out of your medication. 6. Alcohol and its interaction with medication Whether you can drink alcohol while on medication depends entirely on what medication you’ve been prescribed. The following link has some really useful detailed information which I'd highly recommend everyone to read. https://www.drinkaware.co.uk/alcohol-facts/health-effects-of-alcohol/lifestyle/is-it-ok-to-drink-while-on-medication/ LINK REFERENCES IN VIDEO: To check interactions between medicines: https://www.drugs.com/drug_interactions.html To find out more information about a medicine or its patient information leaflet: https://www.medicines.org.uk/emc Want to see more videos about everything health and pharmacy?

Antibiotic resistance is a serious public health problem that threatens the practices of modern medicine. On 16 November, the WHO Western Pacific Regional Office is launching Antibiotic Awareness Week with the slogan “Antibiotics: Handle with Care”. WHO encourages individuals to always complete a full prescription of antibiotics, never share or use leftover antibiotics and never buy antibiotics without a prescription. Visit our website to learn more about Antibiotic Awareness Week and how you can get involved: www.antibioticawarenessweek.org.
We present a comprehensive country-level policy response to combat antibiotic resistance, consisting of six strategies, based on the experience of the Global Antibiotic Resistance Partnership (GARP), which has fostered the development of locally driven antibiotic policy in eight countries. The strategies should be particularly relevant for the many countries that have not yet formally addressed antibiotic resistance. 1. Reduce the need for antibiotics through improved water, sanitation, and immunization. Improving coverage for existing vaccines and adding new ones, improving access to clean water and sewerage systems, and ensuring a safe and healthful food supply all reduce the need for antibiotics, thereby reducing antibiotic resistance rates. 2. Improve hospital infection control and antibiotic stewardship. Better hygiene, particularly hand washing with soap or using alcohol disinfectant between patients, and antibiotic stewardship programs reduce infection rates. Surveillance of resistance and hospital-acquired infections gives administrators information for management and policy decisions. 3. Change incentives that encourage antibiotic overuse and misuse to incentives that encourage antibiotic stewardship. Eliminating economic incentives that encourage the overuse of antibiotics all along the supply chain—in hospitals, in communities, and in agriculture—can conserve antibiotic effectiveness. 4. Reduce and eventually phase out antibiotic use in agriculture. Eliminating antibiotic use for growth promotion and minimizing use for disease prophylaxis need not jeopardize animal or human health. 5. Educate and inform health professionals, policymakers, and the public on sustainable antibiotic use. Education and guidelines for healthcare professionals, engagement with policymakers, and national awareness campaigns for the public will begin changing the norms in antibiotic use and promote conservation. 6. Ensure political commitment to meet the threat of antibiotic resistance. Presenting the case to policymakers and gaining their political and financial support are critical to success.

On January 1st 2017 the Food and Drug Administration’s new regulations for on-farm antibiotic use takes effect. Pork producers must be ready for these new guidelines. To make sure you don’t miss a step, use the USCARE Checklist. Understand the new veterinary feed directive and water prescriptions rules - As of Jan. 1, 2017, growth promotion use of medically important antibiotics will not be allowed. Only therapeutic use for a specific animal health conditions will be allowed under the direction of a veterinarian. Strengthen your veterinary-client-patient relationship by scheduling regular herd visits with your veterinarian to review herd health monitoring and health strategies. Communicate with your feed supplier to make sure they are ready for the new VFD record-keeping procedures and they have proper feed delivery protocols in place. Assess your herd health and welfare strategies with your veterinarian to maximize herd health and reduce the need for antibiotic use. Renew your commitment to responsible antibiotic use by staying current with PQA Plus and making it part of your worker education program. Finally, ensure you keep copies of your VFDs for two years and water medication prescriptions for one year.

Public health and sustainable food production are facing a serious global threat today: the increasing spread of Antimicrobial Resistance. What is Antimicrobial Resistance? Antimicrobial Resistance refers to bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites that become resistant to anti-microbial drugs. How do microbes become resistant? Antimicrobials, such as antibiotics, are used to kill or stop microbes from growing in humans, animals and plants. Antimicrobial Resistance can occur naturally over time, but overuse and misuse of antimicrobial drugs in humans and in agriculture speed up the development of Antimicrobial Resistance. As a result, the medicines we use to treat common infections are becoming less and less powerful or even useless. How does Antimicrobial Resistance spread? Microbes that are resistant to anti-microbials can be found in people, animals, food, water and the environment. Antimicrobial resistant microbes can spread through the food chain and the environment; between people and animals; or from person to person. The impact of Antimicrobial Resistance. Antimicrobial Resistance affects: 1. Human health Because drugs become less effective leading to more severe illnesses, with an estimated 700.000 human deaths each year. 2. Food supply and agriculture Because production losses lead to food insecurity, and because misuse results in unsafe or contaminated foods. 3. and Antimicrobial Resistance affects the environment, with soil and water polluted with drug residues and resistant microbes. What is needed? A global threat requires a global response bringing together all people and sectors to reduce the use of antimicrobials in humans and animals and to use them selectively, prudently and responsibly. A global threat requires a "One Health" approach with all sectors working together: 1. Veterinarians Prescribing medicines responsibly and only after a proper diagnosis; and advising whenever possible alternatives to antimicrobials, like vaccines. 2. Farmers Through common and good farming practices; and a responsible use of quality antimicrobials, only on professional advice. 3. Food producers Producing, handling and marketing food under hygienic conditions, in a proper and environmentally friendly way. From Global commitment to Local action. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) supports National Action Plans involving all sectors to prevent the development of antimicrobial resistance by: 1. Raising awareness 2. Promoting best practices in food and agriculture, including aquaculture 3. Developing capacity for surveillance and monitoring 4. and always making sure that rules for the safe use are respected. If we use antimicrobials in agriculture responsibly we support sustainable food security and save lives. http://www.fao.org/antimicrobial-resistance/en/ Subscribe! http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=FAOoftheUN Follow #UNFAO on social media! * Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/UNFAO * Google+ - https://plus.google.com/+UNFAO * Instagram - https://instagram.com/unfao/ * LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/company/fao * Twitter - http://www.twitter.com/faoknowledge © FAO: http://www.fao.org

Remedy for Trouble Why Too Many Antibiotics Aren't Good for Kids. Consistently for seven days I set my wake up timer for 2 a.m. so I can wake my 3-year-old little girl, Devon, for yet another dosage of her "disgusting" pharmaceutical. I sit on her, brace her arms down, squeeze her nose close, and gradually squirt a teaspoon of thick, greenish-yellow fluid into her mouth. We rehash this wrestling match at regular intervals. I feel like the most exceedingly terrible mom on the planet. Tragically, there's no better choice. Devon has a repeating urinary-tract disease (UTI) caused by microbes that are impervious to generally anti-microbials. It just reacts to one oral medication that is affirmed for kids a fluid with a taste, surface, and scent that cherry seasoning can't mask. I stress what will happen if the microbes inevitably end up impervious to that anti-toxin as well. Before Devon became ill, I realized that abusing anti-microbials could prompt the advancement of purported superbugs, yet I didn't generally consider those germs striking my family. Presently I know better. "Despite the fact that we discuss anti-microbial protection as a general medical problem, it's an individual youngster who gets a contamination," says Arjun Srinivasan, M.D., a medicinal disease transmission expert at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). A New Drug Problem: Truth be told, numerous regular youth sicknesses are winding up progressively difficult to treat. You've presumably found out about MRSA—methicillin-safe Staphylococcus aureus, conceivably destructive microscopic organisms that don't react to regularly utilized anti-toxins. Another investigation dissecting information from more than 300 doctor's facilities discovered that there's been a disturbing increment in ear, sinus, and throat diseases in kids that were caused by MRSA. Be that as it may, the issue isn't constrained to one superbug. Two-year-old Sloane Poth, of Charlotte, North Carolina, required surgery a year ago for a skin disease caused by another strain of medication safe microscopic organisms. On Monday, it looked like diaper rash. By Friday, she was in the clinic. "She's fine now, however it was extremely unnerving," says her dad, Michael. "The specialist said that he's currently observing a few genuine cases like hers consistently." Albeit most anti-infection safe contaminations aren't really perilous, pediatricians who can't utilize their first-decision anti-microbial may need to endorse a medication that is not affirmed for youngsters or basically isn't kid-accommodating. "On the off chance that pharmaceutical doesn't taste great, youngsters won't swallow it, and after that your exclusive alternative is to give them a shot," says Mika Hiramatsu, M.D., a pediatrician in Castro Valley, California. For MRSA, be that as it may, there are no outpatient shots that work, so a youngster who won't take oral anti-microbials should be hospitalized for IV anti-infection agents. "It's a tremendous trial for the sorts of contaminations that would have been simple for us to cure 20 years back," says Dr. Hiramatsu. Treating a safe disease is additionally expensive as far as both time and cash also nervousness and lost rest. Karyn Bilezerian's 16-month-old child, Karson, experienced an agonizing ear disease for almost a month until the point that his fourth anti-infection at long last did the trap. "Consistently, we were backpedaling to the specialist and the drug store," says Bilezerian, who lives in Wrentham, Massachusetts. "Karson had never required anti-infection agents, so I was stunned when the initial three didn't work. With the fourth one, we saw a distinction immediately—when it worked, it worked." The Path of Most Resistance: Each kid has settlements of accommodating and unsafe microscopic organisms living in his body. Inside those states, a couple of individual strains of microorganisms may have a characteristic capacity to oppose certain anti-toxins. So at whatever point your tyke takes an anti-microbial, the germs that are powerless to that medication pass on, leaving more space for the medication safe organisms to duplicate and wind up overwhelming. A similar thing can happen when your tyke doesn't complete his entire course of anti-toxins. In any case, the solid survive.

5 Of The World's Most Powerful Antibiotics That Don't Require A Prescription. While anti-microbials have been a redeeming quality from various perspectives, diminishing sickness and passing from irresistible ailment, we are currently in a period of anti-infection protection. Why? Since anti-toxins have been totally abused. The bugs are never again reacting to the anti-infection agents. Indeed, in the only us, around 2 million individuals every year are contaminated with anti-toxin safe microorganisms and almost 23,000 individuals will kick the bucket every year on account of these infections.1. The superbugs incorporate MRSA (methicillin-safe Staphylococcus aureus), Clostridium difficile, sedate safe Neisseria gonorrhoeae and Streptococcus pneumonia, fluconazole-safe Candida, and much more.1 To aggravate things even, all around we are seeing multi-medicate safe Tuberculosis and intricacies warding off HIV and intestinal sickness, in view of anti-toxin resistance.2. Things being what they are, what do we do? Is the response to take more grounded anti-infection agents or more measurements? Would it be advisable for us to take 3 distinct anti-toxins without a moment's delay? Likely not. Rather, we as a whole need to assume liability, so we don't keep on creating anti-toxin protection. Something else, when you require an anti-microbial, similar to a decisive issue, you will be mooched if that anti-toxin doesn't work!. Since anti-microbials are totally overprescribed, particularly for some kindhearted conditions, for example, viral diseases like cool, influenza, ear infections, chest clog and the sky is the limit from there, for what reason not do your part and utilize nature's best regular "anti-microbials"?. 5 of The World's Most Powerful Antibiotics That Don't Require A Prescription: 1. Crude Honey:. Nectar is entirely astonishing stuff! I prescribe nearby crude nectar. At the point when nectar is crude, it is stuffed loaded with amino acids, B-vitamins, minerals, catalysts, cell reinforcements, and antimicrobial mixes. Crude nectar additionally contains honey bee dust and propolis, which add to its very insusceptible boosting, mending, and anti-microbial properties.3 Crude nectar has an entirely great line-up of employments. It has been appeared to be as viable as finished the counter hack drugs in decreasing hacks in kids, including evening time hacking which enhanced sleep.4,5 It speeds mending in diabetic foot ulcers quicker than standard saline dressings. 6 It is utilized as a prophylactic for patients experiencing waterfall surgery was more viable at lessening postoperative difficulties than routine fluoroquinolones, which are winding up less viable because of anti-toxin resistance.7 As an agony reliever, nectar outflanked acetaminophen after tonsils evacuation, and prompted an arrival to normal eating routine and better rest essentially quicker.8 Crude nectar is likewise viable against MRSA (methicillin-safe Staphylococcus aureus) by method for normally happening hydrogen peroxide found in it. Proof proposes that Manuka nectar from New Zealand has the most noteworthy substance of methylglyoxal, a dynamic compound in nectar that applies a solid antimicrobial impact against MRSA. While this compound is most noteworthy in Manuka nectar, a lot of research demonstrates that nectar, as a rule, applies solid antimicrobial impacts as referenced previously. Nectar is really magnificent and on the off chance that you are particularly searching for help in recuperating MRSA, go for Manuka.9. Nectar ought not be given to youngsters under 2 because of the capability of botulism. 2. Oil of Oregano:. The oil of this normal culinary flavor may simply be the thing you require amid cool and influenza season. It has been appeared to be antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal, and also an antioxidant.10 Due to its movement against norovirus, the "winter stomach bug," oil of oregano might be a helpful sanitizer around the house, at school, childcare, and work.11 Oil of oregano has likewise been appeared to dispose of various parasites in the human stomach related tract when 600mg was ingested for 6 weeks.12. For chilly and influenza season, you may consider taking 1, 500mg container day by day for avoidance and for intense conditions take 3, 500mg cases every day in isolated measurements. You may likewise consider 1-2 drops of oregano oil weakened in a teaspoon of transporter oil (olive, coconut, almond) connected topically to contagious issues, for example, competitor's foot or ringworm. A couple of drops added to steam can help diminish sinus clog and disease. On the off chance that you are oversensitive to plants in the Lamiaceae family, you may respond to Oregano.

Antibiotic drugs save lives. But we simply use them too much — and often for non-lifesaving purposes, like treating the flu and even raising cheaper chickens. The result, says researcher Ramanan Laxminarayan, is that the drugs will stop working for everyone, as the bacteria they target grow more and more resistant. He calls on all of us (patients and doctors alike) to think of antibiotics — and their ongoing effectiveness — as a finite resource, and to think twice before we tap into it.

Where persuasion hasn't worked, doctors hope education will. They want people to know that antibiotics have no power over colds and viruses. "The doctor may help figure things out, but the expectation that your child with a runny nose and cold and cough is given antibiotics and is going to be cured is often sort of misplaced," says Dr. Martin Sherman, pediatrician with Lee Memorial Health System. And sometimes dangerous. "It's frightening world-wide," says Dr. Sherman. Too many doses over time lead to resistance. Meaning that bugs, which should be susceptible to drugs are now immune. "Even six or seven years ago we had about 10 or 12 oral antibiotics that would work on most ear infections. But we're really down to three or four now, because the germs are now resistant," says Dr. Sherman. There's a short list of 'don'ts' when it comes to antibiotics and viral infections. First, they don't cure the illness. Second, they don't keep other people from catching the sickness. And third, they don't make your child feel better. The same rules apply to adults. Late last year, physician guidelines changed, encouraging doctors to wait for 10 days before prescribing drugs for sinusitis and bronchitis. "It keeps coming back once again, to trying to prevent the overuse of antibiotics. So that's why the first line always is conservative treatment," says Arlene Wright, nurse practitioner with Lee Memorial Health System. Even when antibiotics aren't the answer, your doctor may still help you with symptom management to make you feel better.

Most of us have had antibiotics before, usually when we're sick. But we've also been hearing about warnings from health experts that an over reliance on antibiotics has produced what's known as superbugs - basically mutated diseases that are immune to antibiotics. Now, a new study has found that this problem may be the most serious in mainland China. China currently uses the most antibiotics of any country in the in the world. This is partly because of the size of its population , but also because Chinese people use them a lot more. For example, on average, a Chinese person would consume 138 grams of antibiotics per year. That's 10 times more than in the United States. Also, while the World Health Organization recommends that hospitals give no more than 30% of in-patients antibiotics, in China, 70% of inpatients get them. So why is it so overused? Well, because even though China has a semi-communist system, the government doesn't really support the hospitals, so drug sales account for about of half of the revenue that Chinese hospitals make. And of that, about half ( 47%) come from antibiotics. So as you can imagine it's a huge money maker for the healthcare system as well as Chinese doctors who get kickbacks if they prescribe from both hospitals and drug companies.Also, because traditional Chinese medicine has given way to western pharmaceuticals, some patients also have the expectation that, when they get sick, the doctor has to prescribe them something. So now all this use of antibiotics is creating drug-resistant illnesses that can withstand multiple types of medication. A paper recently published in Nature Communications says that Chinese people have a lot more drug-resistant genes in their stomachs than people in Europe. What's worse, the overuse isn't just in humans. China's livestock industry is very loosely regulated, and to boost their production, farmers give a lot of antibiotics to their animals, which can and do travel up the food chain. On average, four times more antibiotics are used in China for veterinary purposes than in the US. And that's probably why, in a study published in February this year, scientists found 149 different drug resistant genes in manures of pigs that were fed antibiotics. That's 200 times more than pigs that were not treated with antibiotics. All of this overuse has scientists very worried. The World Health Organization estimates that 6.8% of tuberculosis cases in China are multi-drug resistant. In a developed country, only 2% are. Experts are concerned that superbugs like MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) could be thriving in China's antibiotic-heavy environment. And if they mutate faster than scientists can develop new drugs to combat them, it could be a huge problem.

What is RAPID STREP TEST? What does RAPID STREP TEST mean? RAPID STREP TEST meaning - RAPID STREP TEST definition - RAPID STREP TEST explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ The rapid strep test (RST) is a rapid antigen detection test (RADT) that is widely used in clinics to assist in the diagnosis of bacterial pharyngitis caused by group A streptococci (GAS), sometimes termed strep throat. There are currently several types of rapid strep test in use, each employing a distinct technology. However, they all work by detecting the presence of GAS in the throat of a person by responding to GAS-specific antigens on a throat swab. A rapid strep test may assist a clinician in deciding whether to prescribe an antibiotic to a person with pharyngitis, a common infection of the throat. Viral infections are responsible for the majority of pharyngitis, but a significant proportion (20% to 40% in children and 5% to 15% in adults) is caused by bacterial infection. The symptoms of viral and bacterial infection may be indistinguishable, but only bacterial pharyngitis can be effectively treated by antibiotics. Since the major cause of bacterial pharyngitis is GAS, the presence of this organism in a person's throat may be seen as a necessary condition for prescribing antibiotics. GAS pharyngitis is a self-limiting infection that will usually resolve within a week without medication. However, antibiotics may reduce the length and severity of the illness and reduce the risk of certain rare but serious complications. RSTs may also have a public health benefit. In addition to undesirable side-effects in the individual, inappropriate antibiotic use is thought to contribute to the development of drug-resistant strains of bacteria. By helping to identify bacterial infection, RSTs may help to limit the use of antibiotics in viral illnesses, where they are not beneficial. Some clinical guidelines recommend the use of RSTs in people with pharyngitis, but others do not. US guidelines are more consistently in favor of their use than their European equivalents. The use of RSTs may be most beneficial in the third world, where the complications of streptococcal infection are most prevalent, but their use in these regions has not been well studied. Microbial culture from a throat swab is a reliable and affordable alternative to an RST which has high sensitivity and specificity. However, a culture requires special facilities and usually takes 48 hours to give a result, whereas an RST can give a result within several minutes. The person’s throat is first swabbed to collect a sample of mucus. In most RSTs, this mucus sample is then exposed to a reagent containing antibodies that will bind specifically to a GAS antigen. A positive result is signified by a certain visible reaction. There are three major types of RST: First, a latex fixation test, which was developed in the 1980s and is largely obsolete. It employs latex beads covered with antigens that will visibly agglutinate around GAS antibodies if these are present. Second, a lateral flow test, which is currently the most widely used RST. The sample is applied to a strip of nitrocellulose film and, if GAS antigens are present, these will migrate along the film to form a visible line of antigen bound to labeled antibodies. Third, optical immunoassay is the newest and more expensive test. It involves mixing the sample with labeled antibodies and then with a special substrate on a film which changes colour to signal the presence or absence of GAS antigen. The specificity of RSTs for the presence of GAS is at least 95%, with some studies finding close to 100% specificity. Therefore, if the test result is positive, the presence of GAS is highly likely. However, 5% to 20% of individuals carry GAS in their throats without symptomatic infection, so the presence of GAS in an individual with pharyngitis does not prove that this organism is responsible for the infection. The sensitivity of lateral flow RSTs is somewhat lower at 65% to 80%. Therefore, a negative result from such a test cannot be used to rule out GAS pharyngitis, a considerable disadvantage compared with microbial culture, which has a sensitivity of 90% to 95%. However, newer optical immunoassay RSTs have been found to have a much higher sensitivity of 94%.
