Source attribution of food-borne zoonoses in New Zealand: a modified Hald model.
A Bayesian approach was developed by Hald et al.((1)) to estimate the contribution of different food sources to the burden of human salmonellosis in Denmark. This article describes the development ofExpand
Assigning the source of human campylobacteriosis in New Zealand: a comparative genetic and epidemiological approach.
Integrated surveillance of infectious multi-source diseases using a combination of epidemiology, ecology, genetics and evolution can provide a valuable risk-based approach for the control ofExpand

Abstract Leptospirosis is an important animal and human health problem in New Zealand, and the epidemiological and ecological aspects of infection in domestic species and free-living species areExpand
The hygienic efficiency of conventional and inverted lamb dressing systems.
Aerobic plate counts (APC 37 degrees C and APC 25 degrees C) and Escherichia coli enumerations (Petrifilm) were used to determine sources of bacterial contamination during sheep dressing, determineExpand
Molecular and spatial epidemiology of human campylobacteriosis: source association and genotype-related risk factors
SUMMARY The epidemiology of human campylobacteriosis is complex but in recent years understanding of this disease has advanced considerably. Despite being a major public health concern in manyExpand
Ecological aspects of the epidemiology of infection with leptospires of the Ballum serogroup in the black rat (Rattus rattus) and the brown rat (Rattus norvegicus) in New Zealand.
Epidemiological aspects of infection with leptospires of the Ballum serogroup in black rats (Rattus rattus) and brown rats (Rattus norvegicus) are described. Rats inhabiting a variety of habitatsExpand
A total of 1296 free-living mammals and birds of 12 species was examined for serologic and bacteriologic evidence of leptospiral infection. Endemic infection with serovar ballum was found in severalExpand
Molecular Epidemiology of Campylobacter jejuni in a Geographically Isolated Country with a Uniquely Structured Poultry Industry
ABSTRACT In New Zealand the number of campylobacteriosis notifications increased markedly between 2000 and 2007. Notably, this country's poultry supply is different than that of many developedExpand
Serological survey of leptospiral antibodies in sheep from England and Wales
A total of 3722 sera was obtained from 188 flocks widely distributed throughout England and Wales; three sera were randomly selected from each flock and tested in the microscopic agglutination testExpand
Serological and bacteriological survey of leptospiral infection in pigs in southern England.
A total of 597 pigs were examined for serological and bacteriological evidence of leptospiral infection. The sample comprised 189 porkers, 205 baconers and 203 sows. Sera were tested against 17Expand
