Leveraging Alternatives to Antibiotic in Livestock for Improving Human Health is an area of increasing research. The increased use of antibiotics in the livestock leads to antibiotic microbial resistance, a major threat to human health. The growing resistance to existing antibiotics provide opportunities for innovation, to develop new antibiotics, alternate therapies, and novel delivery systems. The trend indicates increased research in the areas of CRISPR/Cas gene-editing system, antibiotic conjugates, bacteriophages as antimicrobial agents, antimicrobial peptides, vaccines, eubiotics, and zinc supplementation.
