as zoonotic pathogens: A food production perspective.
Market surveillance for contamination with thermotolerant campylobacters
on various categories of chicken meat in Switzerland.
This is a common mutation in quinolone resistant campylobacters
which usually confers cross-resistance to nalidixic acid (4).

have been known to cause diseases in humans since the early 1900's and the chicken has long been associated with the presence of Campylobacter
There is new material on the extent of Campylobacter
in the food supply, transmission of antibiotic- resistant campylobacters
from food to animals, and control of Campylobacter
at the food source.
Validation of a polymerase chain reaction/restriction enzyme analysis method for species identification of thermophilic campylobacters
isolated from domestic and wild animals.
ABSTRACT Shellfish including oysters (Crassostrea gigas), cockles (Cerastoderma edule) and mussels (Mytilus edulis), have previously been described as an important source of thermophilic campylobacters
, with the potential of causing acute bacterial gastroenteritis in humans.
are found everywhere in nature, even in house pets, who may carry the bacteria without harm to themselves.
cannot grow at all under 30[degrees]C, less than most peak spring and autumn temperatures, so poor food storage multiplication cannot be an issue (unlike other food poisoning bacteria).
Digestive disorders and diarrhea caused by the bacterial Campylobacter
is among the common illnesses primarily in developing countries, and 5 to 15 percent of diarrhea in these countries are instigated by the bacteria, and the prevalence of the bacteria as a cause of diarrhea in our country has been reported to be from 2 to 10 % (11), and even the primary cause of death in developed countries, especially among children under 5 in the United States, was attributed to such bacteriain that two million cases of bacterial infection are reported each year (18).
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently screened Campylobacter
strains from its historical culture collection and identified 4 additional human cases of infection with this subspecies.
