Lothar Kreienbrock - Evidenced Based Approach for a Definition of Defined Daily Dosages of Antibiotics Used in German Pig Production

Lothar Kreienbrock - Evidenced Based Approach for a Definition of Defined Daily Dosages of Antibiotics Used in German Pig Production

February 8, 2018

The use of antibiotics in veterinary medicine and a resulting development of antimicrobial resistance is a topic of major concern. Especially for primary care, evidence is needed to guarantee the efficacy of antibiotic drugs in future. For this, the correct dosage is an essential measure to prevent antibiotic resistance. Because veterinarians used practice differs from the manufacturer’s recommendations, data is needed to describe evidence-based defined daily doses for animals (DDDA). Read more here.
