A team of researchers led by Luciano Caixeta, DVM, PhD, recently published a study that found administering an immune stimulant (IS) prior to transportation reduced the likelihood of treatment for respiratory diseases during the first 30 days of life.

A recent pilot study established processes for voluntary data sharing on how swine producers use antibiotics. Peter Davies, BVSc, PhD, led the study, which set out to advance knowledge of antimicrobial use in the U.S. swine production herds and to support antimicrobial stewardship across that industry. The study identified variation in antimicrobial use among nine large U.S. swine agriculture systems — which together produce more than 20 million pigs each year — in 2016 and 2017.

Released during the 2020 U.S. Antibiotic Awareness Week, this Zoonoses and Public Health publication highlights collaboration among academics, the FDA Center for Veterinary Medicine, and U.S. food animal industries.
