Effects of the use of antimicrobial drugs in food producing animals on pathogen shedding:Summary ofCritical points

Dr. David G. White

Center for Veterinary Medicine

VMAC Meeting-Pathogen Load

January 23,2002


Relevant factors related to drug use and pathogen load on potential human health impacts l.jpg

Relevant factors related to drug use and pathogen load on potential human health impacts

  • Mid 1970’s, 21 CFR 558.15 “studies”

    • sub-therapeutic uses

      • shedding and resistance components

  • 1998, Guidance for industry #78

    • all uses of all classes of antimicrobial new animal drugs

      • rate and extent of development of resistance

      • changes in pathogen load

  • 2000, CVM meeting on pre-approval studies in antimicrobial resistance and pathogen load

    • pre-approval studies to evaluate potential microbial effects associated with antimicrobial drug use in food-producing animals(http://www.fda.gov/cvm/antimicrobial/oldmeet.htm)

  • j


Relevant factors related to drug use and pathogen load on potential human health impacts4 l.jpg

Relevant factors related to drug use and pathogen load on potential human health impacts

  • A consideration of the potential microbiological effects of antimicrobial new animal drugs has been identified as a significant component of the animal drug safety evaluation process

  • The lessons learned from the “558.15 studies” along with 20 years of advancement in scientific knowledge, are important factors for helping to develop appropriate methodologies for evaluating the relevant microbiological effects associated with the use of antimicrobial drugs in food-producing animals

PR/HAACP

  • Dr. Barbara Masters presented information with regards to USDA/FSIS PR/HAACP

    • history

    • regulatory requirements

    • implementation

    • performance criteria

    • performance standards


Human food safety evaluation l.jpg

Human food safety evaluation

  • Dr. Mark Robinson presented information describing evaluation of sponsor generated data

    • relevance to public health

    • identify and mitigate potential adverse human health effects

    • “safety” of drug product


Cvm pathogen load l.jpg

CVM - Pathogen load

  • CVM recognizes that scientific information in this area is limited and acknowledges the concerns raised at the February 2000 public meeting

  • CVM contracted with Exponent to conduct a literature review on the subject to gather additional information

  • Today’s VMAC represents our ongoing efforts to look at the issue of pathogen load and to develop appropriate policy in this area

    • CVM is seeking recommendations from the VMAC on the issue of evaluating potential antimicrobial drug effects on pathogen load in food-producing animals as part of the new animal drug application process
