Antibiotic-Resistant Enteric Infections.

Infect Dis Clin North Am. 2019 Dec;33(4):1105-1123

Authors: Shakoor S, Platts-Mills JA, Hasan R

Rising rates of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in enteric infections are now observed across the globe in low-income and middle-income as well as high-income settings owing to global travel and overlapping social drivers. Pathogen-specific risk factors for spread are now also associated with specific AMR phenotypes and profiles. Several of the drivers of AMR intersect with risk factors for enteric infections and are preventable. Concerted focus on OneHealth prevention strategies for enteric infections and AMR are likely to be of significant benefit in optimizing public health outcomes.
