PhD defence ceremony

The world is facing a major threat from the development of antimicrobial-resistant Gram-negative bacteria, including Enterobacteriaceae, that have become resistant to most available antibiotics. In addition, development of novel and effective antimicrobials is lagging behind the increase in antimicrobial resistance. Nguyen Vinh Trung’s aims are to describe the situation of antimicrobial usage and antimicrobial resistance in Vietnam, and to review the current knowledge of transmission of antimicrobial resistant micro-organisms or resistance encoding genes between chickens and humans worldwide.
