FDA Says Farm Antibiotics Must Be Reined In

Escalating rates of antibiotic resistant human diseases demand a sweeping re-examination of the ways that such drugs are now used on the nation's farms, the Food and Drug Administration warned Monday.

In proposing new regulations that could, for the first time, suspend farmers' use of any antibiotics found to promote the spread of resistant human pathogens, the agency said the link between farm use of such drugs and some human diseases is
now indisputable.

Although the spread of resistant microbes from the farm to human populations hasbeen documented in only a few of the 106 antibiotics used in animals, FDA officials said the risks are serious enough that the agency's role in assuring ``an abundant and affordable supply of meat, milk and eggs'' will have to take a back seat to human health concerns.

``FDA's primary goal must be to protect the public health by preserving the long-term effectiveness of antimicrobial drugs for treating diseases of humans,'' said Stephen Sundlof, director of the agency's Center for Veterinary Medicine, at a three-day public hearing on the proposal in Rockville, Md.

Under the new rules proposed by the FDA, the agency would create a regulatory framework that would set specific thresh
olds at which the appearance of resistance would trigger an automatic halt to agricultural uses of any drugs. The regulations
would apply to new drugs developed for agricultural use after the laws go into effect and could also apply to drugs already in use.

The new rules aired Monday could require congressional approval and will take at least a year to be enacted, officials said.
New information from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta shows, for the third year in a row, elevated levels of resistant strains of the country's two leading bacterial causes of foodborne illness: Campylobacter and Salmonella. Although health officials can't be sure how much of the increase in resistant gastrointestinal illness is due to the farm, and how much is due to heavy prescribing of the drugs by doctors, they say farm use is contributing significantly to the problem. Estimates of total farm use of antibiotics range from one-third to two-thirds of all antibiotics used in the United States.
