The distribution of Campylobacter spp. on 13 poultry farms (broiler chicken, quail, pheasant, peacock, and turkey) from eight regions (Vladimir, Vologda, Voronezh, Kaluga, Liptsk, Moscow, Orenburg, and Orel) in Russia was surveyed. Intestinal materials were plated onto Campylobacter-selective medium and plates were incubated microaerobically at 42 degrees C for 24 or 48 h. Identification was based on colonial morphology, microscopic examination, and biochemical tests; latex agglutination assays… Expand
The isolation and genotypic characterisation of campylobacter jejuni from environmental matrices
An enrichment-PCR method for the isolation and detection of C. jejuni and C. coli was developed and sensitivity levels determined in 13 environmental matrices, including animal faeces, food and water, and three of the subtypes carried by an individual carcass were shown to be clonally related raising the question of in vivo recombination events during host passage.

Colonization by quinolone resistant strains could be the origin of this human infection, acquired by ingestion, obtained by ingestion. Expand
Increased erythromycin resistance in clinical Campylobacter in Northern Ireland--an update.
There has been a concurrent rise in erythromycin resistance in isolates originating from poultry in Northern Ireland, rising to 15.3% resistance in 2002, and where there has been no other marked increased in antibiotic resistance levels in poultry isolates, such patterns are in contrast with those reported for the USA, Pakistan and the Republic of Ireland.

Prevalence of Campylobacter subtypes in pheasants (Phasianus colchicus spp. torquatus) in the Czech Republic
To determine the significance of pheasants as a source of C. jejuni infection in humans, the RFLP and PFGE patterns of p heasant isolates are currently being compared with those of isolates from diarrheic patients. Expand
Prevalence of Campylobacter jejuni, Campylobacter coli and enteric Helicobacter in domestic and free living birds in North-Western Italy.
Results show that both microorganisms commonly infect poultry, especially intensive farming animals, and only hooded crows among the wild bird group, proved to be highly sensitive to Campylobacter infection. Expand
Control strategies for Campylobacter infection in poultry production
Current on-farm control options to reduce the prevalence and colonisation of Campylobacter in poultry are summarised and the use of probiotics can help to improve the natural defence of animals against pathogenic bacteria and is an effective approach for livestock to reduce bacterial contamination.

Bacteriocins to control Campylobacter spp. in poultry--A review.
The application of therapeutic bacteriocin treatments to reduce poultry colonization diminishes Campylobacter from >10(8) cfu/g of cecal materials to nondetectable or very low levels in treated birds. Expand
In vitro activity of ertapenem against bacteraemic pneumococci: report of a French multicentre study including 339 strains.
In Europe, France has the highest rates of penicillin and erythromycin resistance in pneumococci: in 2002, 53% and 58% of the strains were found to be non-susceptible to these antibiotics, respectively. Expand
Isolation of Bacillus circulans and Paenibacillus polymyxa strains inhibitory to Campylobacter jejuni and characterization of associated bacteriocins.
Anti-Campylobacter activity among 365 Bacillus and Paenibacillus isolates from poultry production environments was evaluated and antagonists and the corresponding bacteriocins may be useful in the control of Campylobacteria infection in poultry. Expand
Bacteriocins reduce Campylobacter jejuni colonization while bacteria producing bacteriocins are ineffective
Treatments with viable probiotic bacterial cultures were ineffective in reducing C. jejun i in chickens, while bacteriocin treatment from these corresponding bacteria substantially reduced C.Jejuni colonization in the live birds. Expand


Campylobacters: the most common bacterial enteropathogens in the Nordic countries
A great interest has lately been focused on the possible triggering mechanisms underlying this phenomenon, and traditional serotyping methods, such as pulsed-field gel electrophoresis, have been developed. Expand
Enumeration of Campylobacter spp. in broiler feces and in corresponding processed carcasses.
The results obtained in this study suggest that the implementation of antimicrobial interventions by the poultry industry has already reduced consumer exposure to the Campylobacter spp. Expand
National surveillance of Campylobacter in broilers at slaughter in Denmark in 1998.
A surveillance study for thermophilic Campylobacter spp. in broiler flocks was carried out for the year 1998 in Denmark. The study included examinations of 4286 broiler flocks comprising samples fromExpand
Identification of hippurate-negative thermophilic campylobacters.
PCR seemed to be a more reliable method to identify C. coli from campylobacter jejuni isolates showing negative hippurate hydrolysis results, and Hybridization with PCR probes for ceuE gene of known C.Jejuni and coli strains confirmed PCR results in all 27 isolates tested. Expand
Antibiotic Resistance Trends in Enteropathogenic Bacteria Isolated in 1985–1987 and 1995–1998 in Barcelona
The greater increase in the rate of resistance was observed in Campylobacter jejuni for quinolones and tetracycline and in gastroenteric salmonellae for ampicillin, chloramphenicol, and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole and nalidixic acid. Expand
Rapid determination of antimicrobial susceptibility for urgent clinical situations.
Data is presented to show that the conventional approach to susceptibility tests for drugs and bacterial genera is too unreliable for clinical use, especially with specimens containing mixtures of microorganisms. Expand
