Diagnostic innovation and livestock (DIAL): towards more effective and sustainable applications of antibiotics in livestock farming

Lead Research Organisation: University of Exeter
Department Name: Geography

Abstract

The widespread use of antibiotics in livestock farming, in many circumstances, increasingly serves as alternative to the diagnosis, targeted treatment and prevention of disease in individual animals, flocks and herds. Relationships and practices between diagnosis, prescription, treatment and prevention have become stretched to the point of rupture, a rupture thrown into sharp focus by the issue of AMR. Better, smarter, more rapid and more accessible diagnoses, driven by a shift in the behaviours and conditions associated with diagnostic decision making (whether performed in the laboratory or at the point-of-care by veterinarians or farmers) represents a critical step to delivering a more effective and sensible use of antibiotic medicines in animal health. Improvements in diagnostic development and practice, however, and in their relationship to prescription and treatment, require social, governance and technical innovations, understanding the parameters and conditions of which demands urgent research. In this proposed research, we ask: "What needs to be in place to develop better conditions for a diagnostic-led approach to animal care and treatment?"

This interdisciplinary research team will work with and draw from original, empirically driven information, understanding and analysis from diagnostic tool developers and regulators, veterinary practices and professional bodies, farmers and treatment, decision makers, veterinary laboratories, the food industry and government regulatory authorities to develop durable and innovative strategies for facilitating and advancing smarter approaches to the use of antibiotics in agriculture.

We aim to collaboratively generate, evaluate and analyse behaviours and strategies in the practice and governance of animal disease diagnosis, and to show how innovation in the development of diagnostic tools and methods in diagnostic practice along with diagnostic regulation and governance can lead to more sensible use and prescription of antibiotics in animal farming. To do this, we will assess current diagnostic and treatment decision practices in the UK. We will generate understanding of the current development of, market for, and regulation of new and innovative diagnostic tools and technologies. Working with veterinarians, diagnostic developers, farmer and regulators, we will identify pathways and possibilities for improved diagnostic practice and, with partner veterinary practices, will trial new diagnostic tools on a series of farms. We will conduct pilot and capacity-building research in Tanzania, where the relative absence of robust national-level institutions and governance structures for the management of animal disease creates a different context for the coherent stewardship of antibiotic practice and diagnostic use.

We will assess the adaptability and responsiveness of the different production sectors (poultry, pigs and cattle), along with a variety of veterinary structures, to the trialled innovations in diagnosis and diagnostics, and will determine the likely benefits of these innovations for prescription practice, for animal health and for livestock production. We will evaluate the implications these innovations will have for the organisation, cost-effectiveness and efficiency of veterinary practice, as well as for veterinary training. We will identify the changes in behaviour, practice and knowledge necessary to accompany the more widespread adoption of novel and innovative practices that are deemed effective. We will assess the regulatory and governance support necessary to see the adoption and use of innovative diagnostic practices. With our project partners, we will develop detailed strategies for the improved use of diagnostic tools and practices to enable more effective and sensible use of antibiotics in livestock agriculture.

Planned Impact

This research addresses the conditions needed to achieve improved veterinary diagnostic practices and treatment decisions through behaviour and practice change, leading to more sensible and sustainable use veterinary medicines. It will provide a detailed assessment of current veterinary (and on-farm) diagnostic practice, and will directly feed this back to interested parties: veterinary practitioners, farmers and the overall animal agricultural industry. Working directly with industry partners to inform and direct the research, the project will deliver reasonable and realistic recommendations regarding the development of viable protocols, standards and practices relating to diagnosis, treatment procedures and interventions. This research will establish and utilise avenues for co-production of science and practice-driven knowledge and information, and will yield insights into how market-driven forms of governance and regulation (such as assurance, certification and benchmarking) and deontological forms (such as professional affiliations and standards) can contribute to achieving changes in the behaviour and practices of diagnosis, prescription and treatment involving antibiotics in livestock agriculture. The impacts will reach across a number of domains and communities.
Diagnostic industry: This research investigates the nature and market of the diagnostic development industry, looking at the regulatory and other barriers and drivers of innovative diagnostic development and their real-world application in the context of achieving more responsible use of antibiotics. Working in the UK, with a pilot study in Tanzania, the project investigates the promising near-future developments in innovative diagnostics and the market and adoption environment for these products. The project involves the triaing of new diagnostic practices to ascertain their likely potential to yield behaviour change in medicine use as well as their economic and organisational implications for diagnostic practice.
Veterinary practices, diagnosticians and diagnostic users: Working closely with veterinary practices and professional veterinary bodies, the research will provide evidence, insights and analysis in the current and innovative use of diagnostics in delivering more responsible medicine use. The project will consider the shifting role and place of diagnostics with respect to disease treatment and prevention, and will contribute to the development of protocols and standards in diagnostic use.
Regulators and governance bodies: The project assesses the impact of the current regulatory environment and governance on the development and use of diagnostics in test development and veterinary medicine, and, by working with key actors in the UK and elsewhere, will inform future governance in this area, such as the role of regulation in incentivising the development of innovative technologies; the development of formularies, limitations on critically important antibiotics, improvements to the prescribing cascade, changes to the licensing of diagnostic tests or certain veterinary medicines.
Farmers and the livestock industries: Current use of diagnostics in veterinary medicine is strongly affected by farmer and veterinary attitudes, behaviour and concerns such as issues of sampling, the time taken for diagnostic results to be available in order to impact upon treatment decisions, the nature of the on-farm environment, as well as information and cost. By working with veterinarians and farmers, exploring their ideas through surveys and interviews, and through the trialing of innovative and novel diagnostic procedures, the project will provide empirical data and analysis allowing re-assessment of the potential for better diagnostics on farms.
Wider public: The analysis and understanding generated by this project will respond to significant public and policy concerns relating to more responsible use of antibiotics, especially in livestock.

Description The round of focus groups held with farm animal veterinarians in the first year of the project threw new light on diagnostic procedures and decision-making within veterinary practices and how veterinarians on-farm approached the process of making diagnostic decisions leading to the prescription of antimicrobial medicines

The questionnaire survey of large animal veterinarians conducted during the autumn of 2018 in association with the British Veterinary Association and its Specialist Groups has provided a significant amount of data on the uses of diagnostic tests and procedures in on-farm animal disease and treatment and the associations between diagnostics, diagnostic tests and the prescription and use of antimicrobial medicines. A preliminary analysis of the questionnaire data was undertaken and a paper, drawing on that analysis has been submitted to the journal The Veterinary Record (currently under review). The data from the survey provides a unique insight into current diagnostic practices, the future of rapid diagnostic tools in veterinary interventions and the links between diagnostic practice and antimicrobial use.The results reveal the continuing importance of clinical observation and animal/herd knowledge in treatment decision-making yet a more varied use of formal diagnostic tests. The findings identify a considerable ambivalence on the part of farm animal veterinarians regarding the current and future uses of rapid and point-of-care diagnostic tests as means of improving clinical diagnosis and addressing inappropriate antibiotic medicine use.

In Tanzania, DIAL project researcher Vera Mugittuhas carried out a full programme of interviews with stakeholders in the field of Antimicrobial policy and use (including the Ministry of Livestock and Fisheries, the Food and Drug Agency, the Meat and Dairy Boards, the Veterinary Laboratory Agency, feed manufacturers and farmers. This has both contributed to the on-going DIAL research and has led to the production of policy reviews submitted to the Tanzanian Government and presented at a series of events. A series of papers from the Tanzanian work are currently in production.

A series of in-depth interviews have been carried out with practicing veterinarians across the dairy, poultry and pig sectors. This now-completed qualitative survey has investigated the practices of diagnostic use and critically the use of rapid and pen-side tools as a means to address the issue of antimicrobial use in livestock farms. The material from those interviews has been drawn upon for a number of international conference papers and presentations at veterinary events. The interview data reveals the complexity of diagnostic practices, the importance of experiential knowledge, the relationship between veterinarian and farmer and the critical role of technologies and infrastructures in diagnostic practices. This phase of the research has also revealed the complexity of data pathways within contemporary agriculture and the growing exclusivity of animal health information as food companies and other food chain actors become increasingly present in on-farm animal health monitoring and surveillance

A series of semi-structured in-depth interviews has also been carried out with diagnostic developers across the UK, followed by a workshop in London to which a number of developers and others were invited. These interviews, and the subsequent workshop have allowed us to investigate the processes of diagnostic development and, in particular, the blockages that might hinder the progressive development of rapid diagnostic technologies in livestock systems. These interviews and the workshop also reveal pertinent synergies between animal health diagnostic development and human health diagnostic development. From these interviews, a set of protocols are currently being developed to advance the experimental trialling of new point-of-care diagnostics in livestock systems, a critical final part of the empirical work of this project - undertaken in association with partner veterinary companies.

A series of semi-structured interviews has been carried out with dairy, pig and poultry farmers across the UK to investigate animal health management practices, disease control and on-farm treatment decision-making. The detailed material to come from these interviews is currently (February 2021) being studied and analysed. Significant detail on disease management and treatment practices is being revealed which is being considered in parallel to the previously conduced series of interviews with veterinarians. The role and place of diagnostic practices amongst animal carers is being examined and the impact of new concerns over antimicrobial use is being assessed.
Exploitation Route From the outset, this research has worked closely with the veterinary profession, both through our direct collaborators (three veterinary companies and the BVA) and through continual association through conferences, workshops and professional contacts. The insights from the various empirical components of the research (focus groups, questionnaire survey, veterinary interviews, farmer interviews, diagnostic developer interviews and workshops, the work in Tanzania and so on) are being actively discussed with members of the farming and veterinary profession as well as with diagnostic developers. More specifically, the project, in association with veterinary partners, is trialing the use of novel point-of-care diagnostics in the livestock sector. In short, it is our hope that the outcomes of this funding will be taken forward bye the veterinary profession, by individual veterinary practices, by livestock farmers, by diagnostic developers and by authorities and governments in the UK, Tanzania and elsewhere.

Description Ongoing research undertaken as part of the DIAL Research project is currently feeding directly into veterinary practice through our collaborative work with our three partner veterinary companies. The experimental development of a diagnostic decision tree is one example of this. With the collaboration of the British Veterinary Association, we have carried out a large-scale questionnaire survey of farm animal veterinarians on the use of antimicrobials in livestock farming and on the use of diagnostic tests. This major survey was done in collaboration with the BVA who provided relevant links through their publication, the Veterinary Record. The questionnaire results have been analysed and a scientific publication submitted to the Veterinary Record (under review at time of writing) The DIAL project research team also collaborated with the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology in providing research information and insights for the publication of the POST Report on Antimicrobial use in UK Livestock (see project publications). Following from that, the DIAL project was invited to participate at the Superbugs event, held at Portcullis House, Houses of Parliament on the 25th February 2020 where research on AMR was showcased to Members of Parliament and others. Data and insights from the qualitative interview-based survey of UK veterinarians have been presented at professional veterinary events, including the British Cattle Veterinarians Association annual conference in Southport, 2019. Data and insights from the qualitative interview-based survey of diagnostic developers were shared with invited diagnostic developers and others at a major workshop event held in London in 2019 We are currently collaborating with one of our veterinary partners in the investigation of point-of-care and rapid diagnostic test practices. This is leading to a series of experimental trials to be carried out this year (delayed from 2020 due to the pandemic).

Results and Impact Collaborative Cultures explores the impact of a One Health approach. Working, learning and sharing best-practice across disciplines. In September 2019 ACTAsia launched its Institute of Caring for Life Academic Research & Education (iCARE) at Oxford University, at a meeting called 'Health & Well-being: Science and Humanity are One'. As a follow-up to this event and to discuss the progress made, we are holding a webinar on One Health Day, 3 Nov 2020. Fast-forward to this webinar, we will celebrate a One Health interdisciplinary approach to the challenges faced for humans, animals and the environment. The discussions are especially poignant in 2020 as many academics and professionals are shifting their thinking to incorporate all three areas into their research and solutions to ensure maximum impact. The Webinar will close with a Charter for Collaborative Cultures being drawn up for iCARE projects. Speakers: Dr. Laura Kahn, Professor Terence Ryan, Professor Adam Hart, Dr. Kristen Rehyer, Sarah Gould and Dr Helen Winter.
