US veterinary hospital faces rare antibiotic-resistant E coli – [A ONE HEALTH ISSUE!]

January 11, 2020

US veterinary hospital faces rare antibiotic-resistant E coli http://www.cidrap.umn.edu/news-perspective/2020/01/us-veterinary-hospital-faces-rare-antibiotic-resistant-e-coli CIDRAP On Apr 1, 2019, Shelley Rankin, PhD, the chief of clinical microbiology at the University of ... Its the quintessential One Health problem, she said. ... A One Health conundrum The report on the outbreak, which appeared this week in Emerging Infectious Diseases, raises a lot of questions. Although the number of dogs and cats affected was small—14 over several months—and its still unclear whether they were infected with the pathogen or colonized, Rankin said what remains unknown is how the animals acquired NDM-5–producing E coli, where these resistance genes are lurking, and how easily they can be transmitted between animals and humans. ... Rankin said that while seeing a CRE outbreak in veterinary medicine did not come as a surprise, especially at a large veterinary hospital, she and her colleagues were not prepared for it, and she doesnt think the profession is prepared for it. Shes hoping that getting the word out about the outbreak, and having discussions with public health agencies, human medical colleagues, and experts in environmental monitoring, will result in some guidance for veterinarians. Its a really good One Health opportunity, she said. Its a great opportunity to bring everyone together.

In other terms, a One Health approach has to be implemented globally to be able to reach palpable results. ...”   “...These three aspects of the OneHealth approach should be urgently addressed not only directly but also indirectly. The universities have a huge role in incorporating this perspective into their curriculums to make sure that the future generation can manage AMR efficiently. Additionally, research institutes should promote research on ways to manage AMR in a OneHealth approach as a supplement to their constant pursuit of new antibiotics (6). All of this however should be supported by governments around the world by following WHO’s recommendations for antibiotic use, by implementing vaccination programs, raising awareness on proper hygiene and assisting all concerned stakeholders in their war against AMR (7). Let us join hands in our battle against antimicrobial resistance and fight for a safer tomorrow.”

U.S. Senate Passes Bipartisan ‘One Health’ Awareness Month Resolution   Please see complete press release https://www.feinstein.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/press-releases?ID=D986D0A7-0FFE-463A-86BE-7C745149D5F0   Dec 20 2019           Washington, DC (USA)—The Senate yesterday unanimously passed a bipartisan resolution introduced by Senators Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and Martha McSally (R-Ariz.) designating January as “National One Health Awareness Month” to promote collaboration between public, animal and environmental health scientists.   One Health is a relatively new term being used by health experts – including at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention – to better focus on the linkages between human, animal and environmental health and the need to develop comprehensive solutions. For instance, public health specialists are now working with physicians and veterinarians to minimize the inappropriate use of antibiotics in human and animal patients to combat antibiotic resistance.   “By using the ‘One Health’ approach, global health problems including antibiotic resistance and the spread of infectious diseases can be more easily addressed,” Senator Feinstein said. “Our resolution will hopefully draw attention to the need for holistic approaches to addressing human health that take into account changes in environmental and animal health. With diminishing resources and a growing human population, fighting problems with a ‘One Health’ approach must be encouraged now more than ever.” “The health of our population is dependent on the interconnection of people, animals, and the environment,” said Senator McSally. “I was glad to join Senator Feinstein in introducing this resolution designating January as National One Health Awareness Month to promote ‘One Health’ and its growing collaboration in order to make our world a healthier place.”   Full text of the resolution follows:   Designating January 2020 as National One Health Awareness Month to promote awareness of organizations focused on public health, animal health, and environmental health collaboration throughout the United States and to recognize the critical contributions of those organizations to the future of the United States.   Whereas One Health is a collaborative, multisectoral, and transdisciplinary approach, working at the local, regional, national, and global levels, with the goal of achieving optimal health outcomes recognizing the interconnection between people, animals, plants, and their shared environment;   Whereas the mission of One Health is to establish closer professional interactions, collaborations, and educational opportunities across the various medical, veterinary, and environmental health professions and their allied science professions to simultaneously improve public health, animal health, and environmental health;   Whereas the increasing threats posed by emerging diseases shared between animals and people, foodborne, vector-borne, and waterborne diseases, and other environmental factors may support the need for an integrated effort by professionals from multiple disciplines, including health, science, technology, and engineering;   Whereas, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, up to 75 percent of new or emerging infectious diseases in people are spread by animals;   Whereas, each year, International One Health Day is November 3; and   Whereas One Health is essential to combating and strengthening the surveillance of emerging and reemerging diseases: Now, therefore, be it   Resolved, That the Senate designates January 2020 as “National One Health Awareness Month” to—   1. promote awareness of organizations that focus on One Health efforts to improve the quality of life for people and animals;   2. recognize the efforts made by such organizations in using a One Health approach to prevent epidemics; and   3. recognize the importance of using the One Health approach to simultaneously protect the health of people, animals, plants, and the environment in the United States.   ###
