Consumption of Indonesian populations for broiler chickens or broilers that are sold daily in traditional or modern markets is indeed extremely high.
However, he almost escaped the threat of a threat to the consumption of chickens, which are harvested on average at 45-50 days.
The results of the research carried out jointly by INDOODUN, the Udayana One Health Collaborating Center (Udayana OHCC) and the Bali province in the field of livestock and health care in December 2018 found Escherichia coli isolated from chicken meat consuming many people.
The results also showed an increase in immunity of more than 90% in at least 3 types of antibiotics from the 11 tested.
The three types of antibiotics are ampicillin, amoxicillin and erythromycin. While nalidixic acid, an antibiotic that is often used to treat urinary tract infections in humans, increases the immune system by up to 50%.
The problem is that these antibiotics are the most commonly used antibiotics in the community and can often be bought without a prescription.
"What is most concerned about the results of this study is that 2.4% of E. coli bacteria are resistant to cephalosporin antibiotics." These bacteria produce enzymes that are capable of neutralizing all cephalosporin antibiotics, "explains Dr. Ni Nyoman Sri Budayanti as a member of the research team of OHD deputy Udayan.
Cephalosporin antibiotics are the most commonly used antibiotics in hospitals in Indonesia. These antibiotic-resistant bacteria generally easily elicit immunity against other antibiotics, such as the quinolone class antibiotic (ciprofloxacin, levofloxacin), which is one of the major antibiotics for the treatment of patients who are hospitalized.
The discovery of multi-resistant bacteria in broiler chickens marketed in traditional or modern markets is certainly causing anxiety, as these bacteria can be moved to humans when handling chicken. It is possible that people will be infected with multi-resistant chicken meat bacteria.
The condition of increasing resistance to antibiotics is known as antimicrobial resistance (AMR). AMR is currently a serious threat to healthcare around the world, including Indonesia.
