administration route dosage resistance pigs antimicrobials
Project description

The posology of currently available antimicrobials was determined solely based on clinical efficacy and outcome, without taking resistance selection into account. The goal of present study is to evaluate the effect of dosage (over- and underexposure), route of administration (oral and parental) and intestinal health (inflammation) on resistance selection in the commensal microbiota of pigs.
