Aminoglycosides are one of the major classes of antibiotics used in veterinary medicine to treat animal infections. They are frequently used alone and in association with other antibiotics to treat mastisis of dairy lactating cows.
The detection of residual antibiotics such as Aminoglycosides in milk is of great concern to farmers, milk industry, regulatory agencies and consumers. The consumption of Aminoglycosides can indeed have several adverse effects (allergic reactions, nephrotoxicity and ototoxicity) and may induce the emergence of multi-resistant bacteria.
