CVM Announces the Availability of the 2006 NARMS Executive Report
October 7, 2009
The Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM) announced today the availability of the National Antimicrobial Resistance Monitoring System—Enteric Bacteria (NARMS) 2006 Executive Report.
The report summarizes, in an integrated format, NARMS data on Salmonella and Campylobacter isolates recovered in 2006 from human clinical cases, retail meat products, and food animals at federally inspected plants. The report also includes susceptibility data on Escherichia coli isolates recovered from retail meats and chickens. Summary data from prior years are also included.
As a supplement to the report, CVM has also provided two interactive graphs. The graphs allow users to visualize trends in antimicrobial resistance among NARMS Salmonella and Campylobacter isolates through a user-friendly interface.
