The USDA's chief scientist and several scientific and industry organizations took issue with the World Health Organization's recent news release recommending that poultry and livestock producers "stop using antibiotics routinely to promote growth and prevent disease in healthy animals".

"The use of antibiotics is the single most important factor leading to antibiotic resistance around the world", according to the CDC.

Antibiotic Resistance Breakers is a novel technology that rejuvenates existing antibiotics into long-term effective combination therapies.

While, antibiotic resistance is the ability of bacteria to survive treatment with antibiotics, antimicrobial resistance is the general term for drug resistance of microbes. Each year, at least two million Americans become infected with antibiotic-resistant bacteria, resulting in 23,000 deaths.

Highlighting the importance of commitment at the local level, the National Steering Committee for Antibiotic Resistance, FAO and WHO co-organized the Antibiotic Awareness Week kickoff event in Vinh Phuc province on 13 November 2017. He is passionate about antibiotic awareness, because it's crucial that hospitals can continue to use antibiotics.

Helperby's Antibiotic Resistance Breakers rejuvenate existing antibiotics, enabling them to puncture the tough cell wall of CRE and other evolving superbugs to allow existing last-resort antibiotics to effectively do their work. "We fully support the Be Antibiotics Aware campaign and its emphasis on proper use of antibiotics and commitment to prescription best practices".

"I encourage everyone to use Antibiotics Awareness Week as a chance to think about antibiotics to make sure we use them smartly and appropriately". In 2015 the Association received a national Antibiotic Guardian award from Public Health England and was the only organisation from the veterinary profession to be shortlisted. "Not only that, by using antibiotic treatment unnecessarily, other bacteria in the environment as well as the "healthy" bacteria in the body gets the opportunity to develop resistance due to exposure, which can potentially cause antibiotic resistant infections later on", says Dr Paul Soko executive head of clinical services and quality at Life Healthcare Group Antibiotic-resistant infections are complex and hard to treat. Up to 50 percent of all the antibiotics prescribed for people are not needed or are not optimally effective as prescribed.
