CDC - National Antimicrobial Resistance Monitoring System for Enteric Bacteria (NARMS)

CDC - National Antimicrobial Resistance Monitoring System for Enteric Bacteria (NARMS)

2013 NARMS Annual Report

Tracking Trends in Resistance
The National Antimicrobial Resistance Monitoring System for Enteric Bacteria (NARMS) was established in 1996.  NARMS is a collaboration among state and local public health departments, CDC, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDAExternal Web Site Icon), and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDAExternal Web Site Icon).  This national public health surveillance system tracks changes in the antimicrobial susceptibility of certain enteric (intestinal) bacteria found in ill people (CDC), retail meats (FDA), and food animals (USDA) in the United States.  The NARMS program at CDC helps protect public health by providing information about emerging bacterial resistance, the ways in which resistance is spread, and how resistant infections differ from susceptible infections.

Graphic: Antibiotic Resistance: From the Farm to the Table. Resistance: All animals carry bacteria in their intestines. Antibiotics are given to animals. Antibiotics kill most bacteria. But resistant bacteria survive and multiply. Spread: Resistant bacteria can spread to animal products, produce through contaminated water or soil, prepared food through contaminated surfaces, and the environment when animals poop. Exposure: People can get sick with resistant infections from contaminated food and contaminated environment. Impact: Some infections cause mild illness, severe illness, and may lead to death.
