Prevalence of mcr-1 in commensal Escherichia coli from French livestock, 2007 to 2014

Abstract

Colistin resistance was investigated in 1,696 isolates collected from 2007 to 2014 within the frame of the French livestock antimicrobial resistance surveillance programme. The mcr-1 gene was detected in all com-mensal Escherichia coli isolates with a minimum inhibi-tory concentration to colistin above the 2 mg/L cutoff value (n=23). In poultry, mcr-1 prevalence was 5.9% in turkeys and 1.8% in broilers in 2014. In pigs, investigated in 2013, this prevalence did not exceed 0.5%. These findings support that mcr-1 has spread in French livestock. We report mcr-1 prevalence data in commensal Escherichia coli isolated from French livestock from 2007 to 2014.
