 AVMA, FDA providing education on antiparasitic resistance

Posted Sept. 17, 2014

This month, Food and Drug Administration officials will provide an hour of free education on drug resistance of parasites that infect grazing livestock.

The AVMA is hosting the webinar “Resisting resistance: FDA’s antiparasitic resistance management strategy”  from 10-11 a.m. CDT on Oct. 14. The AVMA will accept up to 500 listeners, and those interested can register here.

Four speakers from the FDA are scheduled to talk about drug resistance of parasites that infect cattle, small ruminants, and horses; the agency’s response; and scientific information on slowing down resistance development.
