"This report summarizes in an integrated format, National Antimicrobial Resistance Monitoring System data on Salmonella and Campylobacter isolates recovered in 2004 from food animals at federally inspected plants, retail meats, and humans. The report also includes susceptibility data on Escherichia coli isolates recovered from retail meats and chickens in 2004. For comparison purposes, summary data from prior years are included. The National Antimicrobial Resistance Monitoring System--Enteric Bacteria (NARMS) is a national public health surveillance system in the United States that tracks changes in the susceptibility of certain enteric bacteria to antimicrobial agents of human and veterinary medical importance. The NARMS program was established in 1996 as a collaboration between three federal agencies: the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). NARMS also collaborates with scientists involved in antimicrobial resistance monitoring in other countries, including Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Mexico, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, and the United Kingdom, so that information can be shared on the global dimensions of antimicrobial resistance in foodborne bacteria." - p.1
