Sammanfattning

Antibiotic resistance is increasingly becoming a major concern for human health globally. Recently, the environment has been identified to play a larger role in this development than previously appreciated, both as a means for resistant bacteria to spread to and between humans and also as a source for novel types of resistance to human pathogens. However, it is still far from clear how large the relative risks of different environmental dispersal and selection scenarios are. Furthermore, quantitative information on many of the underlying processes is mostly lacking, and some of those processes might be so rarely occurring that their probability cannot be measured. This complicates risk assessment and ranking of risk settings, and consequently hampers risk management. This chapter outlines the current state of the research related to environmental antibiotic resistance risks to human health and highlights some possible ways forward in terms of risk management.
