The Next Generation of Alternative to Antibiotic

Demand for safe and sustainable alternatives to AGP

Antibiotic resistance is one of the most serious threat to general public health. In the effort to minimize risk of antibiotic resistance, actions to reduce and eliminate the use of antibiotic growth promoter (AGP) in livestock industry are increasing mandatorily and voluntarily. However, such movement have induced significant economic loss for producers and increased usage of antibiotics for therapeutic treatments. The demand for alternatives to AGP is ever strong – for a new solution that not only can directly combat antibiotic resistant bacteria but enhance efficacy of therapeutic treatments.

Bacteriophage is the next generation of alternatives to AGP

Lytic bacteriophage is a microorganism that selectively kills bacteria in a species-specific manner, without causing any genetic mutation. The U.S. FDA has approved bacteriophage as GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) substance.
