International Conference on the Epidemiology and Control of Biological, Chemical and Physical Hazards in Pigs and Pork
Iowa State University Conferences and Symposia

The SafePork conference series began in 1996 to bring together international researchers, industry, and government agencies to discuss current Salmonella research and identify research needs pertaining to both pig and pork production. In subsequent years topics of research presented at these conferences expanded to include other chemical and biological hazards to pig and pork production.

Abstract

Nowadays fluoroquinolones are used in human and veterinary medicine. In the last decade Salmonella isolates with reduced susceptibility to quinolones have been isolated with increasing prevalence. Among these isolates high-level resistant strains were detected. The present study aimed at investigating Salmonella field isolates (n=56) with reduced quinolone susceptibility with respect to comparative susceptibilities to various fluoroquinolones used in human and veterinary medicine and the genetic basis of quinolone resistance.
