The objective of this review is to present the impact of uncontrolled use of antimicrobial agents in chicken husbandry on emergence of drug resistant Campylobacter in humans. The absence of an Antimicrobial Resistance Monitoring System (ARMS) in most developing countries of the world, amidst trade’s globalization of animals and animal products, helped in the recent decade in spreading of drug resistant organisms across the world’s food chains.
The emergence of drug resistance in Campylobacter organisms was associated with their transmission from animals and their products to humans. This transmission of drug resistant Campylobacter resulted in serious failure of treatment regimens prescribed to infected humans.
