Resistance Data Human Medicine
ANRESIS collects and analyses anonymous antibiotic resistance data provided by a representative selection of Swiss clinical microbiology laboratories. Resistance data are generated during routine medical care (privacy statement) and are reported as delivered. The data collected represent approximately 90% of annual hospitalisation days (see interactive graph for details) and at least 30% of Swiss practitioners. Epidemiological data provided allow for stratification of resistance results according to hospital versus outpatients, age groups and anatomical location. The annual number of isolates for which data are provided to ANRESIS can be viewed on a stacked bar chart.
Resistance Data Veterinary Medicine
Annual priority programmes define specific pathogens from pigs, cattle, poultry and companion animals. The strains are isolated from diagnostic submissions of nearly all Swiss veterinary diagnostic laboratories (university, cantonal, private) in order to achieve good representativeness of the results. Isolates are derived from animals without antimicrobial treatment before the sample was taken. Determination of the minimal inhibitory concentrations (MICs) are performed at the Swiss national reference laboratory (ZOBA).
