Tridge summary

The Association 'Swinemakers of Ukraine' and the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) are initiating a joint project to conduct microbiological monitoring in 'Preserving Animal Health in Ukraine'. The project will test for bacterial diseases in pigs and assess their antibiotic sensitivity using the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) method. This diagnostic method will be implemented in 25 enterprises, primarily in regions affected by Russian aggression, with a total of over 25,000 breeding sows. The data collected will facilitate the efficient use of antibacterial drugs, maximizing therapeutic effects and minimizing costs.

As part of a joint project Association "Swinemakers of Ukraine" and the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) Microbiological monitoring will be carried out for the first time in "Preserving Animal Health in Ukraine". causative agents of bacterial diseases of pigs with determination of sensitivity to antibiotics by the method of minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) taking into account clinical picture. Such an innovative method laboratory diagnostics will be applied for the first time in Ukraine for 25 enterprises, located mainly in regions, victims of armed aggression of the Russian Federation (Mykolaivsk, Zaporizhzhya, Dnipropetrovsk, Kharkiv region), with total population more than 25,000 breeding stock sows "The method of the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) — recommended by the European by the Committee on Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing (EUCAST) and by the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI) for resistance assessment bacteria to ...
