Antimicrobial resistance in S.suis in pigs

In an attempt to establish antimicrobial resistance in Streptococcus suis in swine populations, Italian researchers have observed a high frequency of resistance for tetracycline (88.9%) and erythromycin (38,9%).

The researchers also mentioned, however, that no correlation between the virulence factor epf and resistance to multiple antibiotics was found.
