Abstract
Antimicrobial resistance is a growing problem in human medicine, and concern has been expressed that use of antimicrobials in animals may be a contributing factor. Although the majority of human pathogens showing antibiotic resistance have no link with animals, the issue of animal use of antimicrobials remains controversial, particularly with respect to antibiotic growth promoters (AGP). The European Union (EU) has withdrawn as AGP some compounds that remain in use in the United Sates. This difference in availability allows comparisons to be made of antimicrobial resistance outcomes with and without use of an AGP. Such comparisons so far show little apparent mea...
