Poultry as a source of Campylobacter and related organisms
Avoidance of infection during rearing relies mostly on careful attention to hygiene, exclusion of vermin and a clean water supply, but comparisons of types infecting humans and animals indicate that there are other important sources of human infection, particularly cattle. Expand
Prevalence and distribution of Arcobacter species in various sources in Turkey and molecular analysis of isolated strains by ERIC‐PCR
Aims:  To determine the prevalence of Arcobacter in various food, animal and water sources in Turkey and to subtype the isolated strains using enterobacterial repetitive intergenic consensusExpand
The prevalence of campylobacters and arcobacters in broiler chickens
Chicken carcasses from a supermarket and from a poultry abattoir were examined using methods designed to isolate as many strains of campylobacters and related organisms as possible to indicate that arcobacters are probably not normal inhabitants of the poultry intestine. Expand
Susceptibility of Arcobacter butzleri isolates to 23 antimicrobial agents
Aims: The objective of this study was to determine the susceptibility of Arcobacter butzleri isolates to various antimicrobial agents used in the treatment of infectious diseases in humans andExpand
Investigation of arcobacters in meat and faecal samples of clinically healthy cattle in Turkey
Aims:  To investigate the presence of Arcobacter spp. in minced beef meat (n = 97) and rectal faecal samples (n = 200) collected from cattle immediately after slaughter at a local abattoir in Turkey.
Outbreaks of tularemia in Turkey.
The current report suggests that tularemia exists in north-eastern part of Turkey and it is considered that this region should be accepted as an endemic area for tularensis and kept under control for a long period. Expand
Emended description of Campylobacter sputorum and revision of its infrasubspecific (biovar) divisions, including C. sputorum biovar paraureolyticus, a urease-producing variant from cattle and humans.
The present study confirmed previous findings showing that the salient biochemical tests used to differentiate C. sputorum from C. bubulus are not reproducible; and that the absolute validity of source-specific biovars of the species is questionable. Expand

AM supported good growth of all three species of Arcobacter (A. butzleri, A. skirrowii and A. cryaerophilus) which have been associated with human and animal disease. Expand
Differentiation of Arcobacter species by numerical analysis of AFLP profiles and description of a novel Arcobacter from pig abortions and turkey faeces
To evaluate the efficacy of amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP)‐based genetic profiling for taxonomic and epidemiological analyses of diverse Arcobacter species, a large number of species are studied. Expand
The prevalence of Arcobacter spp. on chicken carcasses sold in retail markets in Turkey, and identification of the isolates using SDS-PAGE.
The membrane filtration technique employing 0.45-microm pore size membrane filters laid onto a nonselective blood agar was used after enrichment in Oxoid Arcobacter Enrichment Broth to examine a total of 75 chicken carcasses and all isolates were identified asArcobacter butzleri. Expand
