Recent studies have indicated a role of the lipooligosaccharide (LOS) of Campylobacter jejuni in the severe neurological Guillain Barré syndrome, as well as in development of more severe symptoms of acute enteritis. We evaluated the role of the LOS locus class in C. jejuni infection among 163 enteritis patients. The prevalence of LOS locus classes differed according to the origin of the isolates. Furthermore, LOS locus classes A and B were significantly associated with susceptibility or… CONTINUE READING
