Among study participants, newly detected genes after one year are shown in bold. Baseline grouping includes both intervention and control group participants. AMR gene detection was measured using a qPCR array (Qiagen). Raw cycle threshold (CT) values were used to determine detection of AMR, defined as positive if ΔCT >6, not detected if ΔCT <3 and inconclusive if ΔCT was ≥ 3 and ≤6, as per the manufacturer’s instructions. Raw qPCR data is shown in S1 Table. Gene names are italicized and names of gene classes are not.
