Abstract
Antimicrobial resistance of bacterial isolates in human and veterinary medicine has become an issue of critical importance. Ultimately, the concern has been focused on the potential for treatment failure and the selection of bacteria that no longer respond to currently available antimicrobial agents. The debate continues on the roles of prescription practices in humans, antimicrobial use in animals (production and companion) and plants, and a declining infrastructure for control of infection.1-9 However, the general goal of researchers should be to provide a better understanding of the emergence, dissemination, and maintenance of resistant bacterial isolates in human and animal populations and the environment.
