Antimicrobial resistance of Streptococcus suis
Keywords:Streptococcus suis, antibiotics, antimicrobial resistance, pathogen, resistant genes
Streptococcus suis is one of the dangerous pathogens causing ruining effects on the swine industry. This pathogen can be transmitted from pigs to humans to induce meningitis, pneumonia, septicemia and even mortality. Uncontrolled antibiotic use is a potential risk of the increase of drug resistance of Streptococcus suis. This review will provide recent information of antibiotic resistance of Streptococcus suis worldwide and in Vietnam, together with an update of the molecular mechanisms of drug resistance. These information could be useful for effective prevention and treatment.
