The authors concluded that the addition of bambermycin to the feed of pigs almost completely prevented the increase in numbers of resistant E. coli in the faecal flora, resulting in significantly fewer resistant E. coli excreted when compared to untreated and avoparcin treated pigs. This observed reduction in excretion of resistant bacteria may decrease the likelihood of dissemination of resistant bacteria and their plasmid mediated resistance genes from animals to humans via the food chain. It was emphasised that the study evaluated only three multi-resistant strains of E.

Virginiamycin has activity primarily against Gram-positive bacteria, both aerobes and anaerobes. Nagaraja and Taylor (1987) undertook a survey of the susceptibility of ruminal bacteria to virginiamycin and found that many important lactate producing organisms are very susceptible to virginiamycin as are the hydrogen producers. The changes in the rumen flora following virginiamycin administration would be expected to decrease lactic acid 38 Antimicrobial growth promoters  Current use of antimicrobial growth promoters in food animals: the benefits production as well as to decrease hydrogen and therefore methane production.
