Campylobacter jejuni strains isolated from chicken faeces and from humans suffering from gastroenteritis were used to determine the colonisation phenotypes and colonisation potential of these strains in chickens. Five different colonisation types were observed ranging from immediate and sustained colonisation to completely non-colonising. Phenotype one showed immediate colonisation with prolonged excretion of viable C. jejuni bacteria. Phenotype two showed delayed colonisation with prolonged… CONTINUE READING
