United Kingdom: Colistin use in pig sector falls by over 70%

New figures collated by the British pig industry and released by RUMA indicate use of Colistin, an antibiotic of last resort which treats a number of bacterial infections in both humans and animals, fell significantly in the sector during 2016.

The latest available UK sales data from 2015 shows Colistin sales into veterinary medicines were already low at around one tenth of the EU recommended limit. But preliminary analysis of data received via the new pig e-Medicines Book (e-MB), which was developed and launched by AHDB Pork last year and has now collected the 2015 and 2016 ‘medical’ records of more than two-thirds of the national herd, suggests that use of Colistin in pigs decreased more than 70% in 2016.

More e-MB data will be made public later this year in line with the publication of sector-specific targets at RUMA’s conference in association with the Veterinary Medicines Directorate on 27 October.
