Resistencia a los antimicrobianos

Los medicamentos antimicrobianos desempeñan un papel fundamental en el tratamiento de enfermedades y su uso es fundamental para proteger tanto la salud humana como la animal. Sin embargo, las sustancias antimicrobianas suelen utilizarse indebidamente para tratar y prevenir enfermedades en el sector ganadero, acuícola y en la producción agrícola. Estas acciones suelen estar asociadas con el riesgo potencial de aparición y propagación de microorganismos resistentes a los antimicrobianos.
