NARMS Annual Reports
The NARMS Annual Reports summarize antimicrobial resistance information on the pathogens under surveillance. The Annual Reports describe the number and type of isolates collected, their associated antimicrobial resistance, and trends in antimicrobial resistance. These four reports, the Human Isolates Report (CDC), the Retail Meat Isolates Report (FDA), the Interagency Executive Report (FDA), and the Animal Isolates Report (USDA), are published yearly. This web page contacts links to CDC NARMS Annual Human Isolates Reports dating back to 1997.
Laboratory Testing and Isolate Submissions
The CDC reference laboratory conducts antibiotic susceptibility testing on isolates from sporadic cases and outbreaks of illness. The lab also confirms and studies bacteria that have new antibiotic resistance patterns and performs research to understand the genetic mechanisms of resistance and how they are spread. More

- Read the 2012 Annual Human Isolates Report [PDF - 88 pages]
- This annual report includes CDC's surveillance data for 2012 for non-typhoidal Salmonella (refers to serotypes not causing typhoid fever), typhoidal Salmonella (serotypes Typhi, Paratyphi A, Paratyphi B [tartrate negative], and Paratyphi C), Shigella, Campylobacter, E. coli O157, and Vibrio species other than V. cholerae.
- Surveillance data include the number of isolates of each pathogen tested by NARMS and the number and percentage of isolates that were resistant to each of the antimicrobial agents tested. Data for earlier years are presented in tables and graphs when appropriate.
- For the first time, we present interactive graphs that allow users to visualize the percentage of NARMS human isolates resistant to various antimicrobial agents, by year. Graphs are presented for non-typhoidal Salmonella (all and select serotypes), typhoidal Salmonella (serotypes Typhi and Paratyphi A), Shigella, Escherichia coli O157, and Campylobacter. Users can select the antimicrobial agent to view.
