  author={Ebrahim Rahimi and Foroogh Alian and Fereshteh Alian}
Poultry meat is frequently contaminated with Campylobacter strains and is thought to be the major source of organisms causing human Campylobacter enteritis. This study was conducted to determine the prevalence and antimicrobial resistance of Campylobacter spp. isolated from retail duck and goose raw meats in Iran. From August 2009 to August 2010, a total of 169 raw duck and goose meat samples were purchased from randomly selected retail outlets in Gilan province, Iran and were evaluated for the…

Antimicrobial Susceptibility Profiles and Molecular Typing of Campylobacter jejuni and Campylobacter coli Isolates from Ducks in South Korea

The objective of the study was to determine the prevalence of Campylobacter species in domestic ducks, and the agar dilution method was used to determine resistance of the isolates to eight antibiotics.

Prevalence, Antibiotic Resistance and Molecular Characterization of Campylobacter jejuni Isolated from Raw Duck Meat in Erode District

Assessment of the prevalence of Campylobacter in raw duck meats, characterize the virulence genes of the isolates and determine their antibiotic resistance patterns revealed that all the isolate showed 100% resistance to Tetracycline and Amoxicillin.

Prevalence and Antimicrobial Resistance of Campylobacter coli and Campylobacter jejuni in the Animals, Food Products, and Human Clinical Specimens in Iran During 2004 - 2017: A Review Study

This comprehensive review showed that C. jejuni is the foremost species in Iran, and antimicrobial resistance studies performed during 2004 - 2017 reported a high rate of resistance to several antibiotics like ciprofloxacin, nalidixic acid, and tetracycline, with the exception of gentamicin, neomycin, and chloramphenicol that had a low resistance rate.

Occurrence and multidrug resistance of Campylobacter spp. at duck farms and associated environmental and anthropogenic risk factors in Bangladesh

It is clearly demonstrates that duck farms contribute to the enhanced occurrence and spread of potentially pathogenic and MDR C. coli and C. jejuni strains and the bacterial dynamics are governed by a combined interaction of environmental and anthropogenic factors.

Investigating Carriage, Contamination, Antimicrobial Resistance and Assessment of Colonization Risk Factors of Campylobacter spp. in Broilers from Selected Farms in Thika, Kenya

Broilers in Thika region are potentially important source of human infection and possible continuity of infection from the threat posed by Campylobacter carrier broilers, thus posing a major public health problem for consumers of poultry products.

The alarmingly high rate of Campylobacter jejuni prevalence in Crohn's disease patients with diarrhea symptoms is demonstrated, however, further investigation is needed to determine the possible causing factors of this disease.



Prevalence and Antibiotic Susceptibility of Thermophilic Campylobacter Species in Broiler Chickens

The widespread faecal contamination of broiler carcasses in broiler farms in K’r›kkale with thermophilic Campylobacter spp constitutes a risk for public health and the application of a preventive system such as HACCP (Hazard Analysis of Critical Control Points) is strongly required in the contamination control of campylobacters.

Alarmingly high rates of resistance to ciprofloxacin were noted, particularly for C. coli isolated from pigs and broilers, which indicates that resistance of Campylobacter in humans could derive from animals.
