NARMS Integrated Report

FDA’s latest NARMS Integrated Report represents a consolidated view of the data generated from human clinical isolates, food-producing animal isolates, and isolates from raw meat at retail outlets.

NARMS reports summarize antimicrobial resistance among enteric bacteria. The reports describe the number and type of isolates collected, their associated antimicrobial resistance, and trends in antimicrobial resistance. This webpage contains NARMS Human Isolates Reports dating back to 1997.

Learn more about the roles of federal and state agencies who track antibacterial resistance in support of food safety.

Laboratory Testing and Isolate Submissions

The CDC NARMS laboratory conducts antimicrobial resistance testing on isolates from sporadic cases and outbreaks of illness. The lab also confirms and studies bacteria that have new antimicrobial resistance patterns and performs research to understand the mechanisms of resistance and how they are spread.
