WILD birds are considered to be the natural vertebrate reservoirs of Campylobacter species ([Chuma and others 2000][1], [Ley and others 2001][2], [Waldenstrom and others 2002][3]) and may act as vectors for transmission to mammals including human beings ([Ge and others 2003][4]), in which

Sources of Campylobacter Colonization in Broiler Chickens
TLDR
C. jejuni and its close relative Campylobacter coli are gram-negative, thermophilic, obligate microaerophilic bacteria that are ubiquitous in temperate environments and colonize the intestinal mucosa of most warm-weather environments.
Campylobacter jejuni—An Emerging Foodborne Pathogen
TLDR
M Mishandling of raw poultry and consumption of undercooked poultry are the major risk factors for human campylobacteriosis, and efforts to prevent human illness are needed throughout each link in the food chain.
Campylobacter jejuni in Black-Headed Gulls (Larus ridibundus): Prevalence, Genotypes, and Influence on C. jejuni Epidemiology
TLDR
A pronounced seasonal variation in C. jejuni carriage is found in black-headed gulls, with the highest rates found in late autumn, suggesting the existence of a subpopulation of C.Jejuni adapted to species-specific colonization or environmental survival.
SOME BACTERIAL ENTEROPATHOGENS IN WILDLIFE AND RACING PIGEONS FROM TRINIDAD
Fecal and cloacal swabs or feces of wild mammalian, avian and reptilian species, either farmed or free-ranging, and of racing pigeons (Columba livia) kept in lofts were cultured for Salmonella spp.,
ANTIMICROBIAL SUSCEPTIBILITY OF 51 CAMPYLOBACTER STRAINS ISOLATED FROM DIARRHEIC AND DIARRHEA-FREE DOGS*
TLDR
The results show that erythromycin, enrofloxacin, and gentamicin can be recommended for the treatment of campylobacteriosis in dogs; this opens the possibility of their therapeutic use in human medicine.
Prevalence of Campylobacter jejuni, Campylobacter lari, and Campylobacter coli in Different Ecological Guilds and Taxa of Migrating Birds
ABSTRACT A total of 1,794 migrating birds trapped at a coastal site in southern Sweden were sampled for detection of Campylobacter spp. All isolates phenotypically identified as Campylobacter jejuni
Susceptibility of clinical isolates of Campylobacter jejuni to twenty-five antimicrobial agents.
TLDR
In general, the beta-lactam antibiotics (penicillins and cephalosporins) showed only moderate to poor activity against C. jejuni.
Prevalence, Antigenic Specificity, and Bactericidal Activity of Poultry Anti-Campylobacter Maternal Antibodies
TLDR
Results highlight the widespread presence of functional anti-Campylobacter antibodies in the poultry production system and provide a strong rationale for further investigation of the potential role of anti-C.
Prevalence of Salmonella, Campylobacter, and Escherichia coli on ostrich carcasses and the susceptibility of ostrich-origin E. coli isolates to various antibiotics.
TLDR
There has been limited research on the prevalence of foodborne pathogens such as Escherichia coli O157:H7, Salmonella, and Campylobacter on ostrich carcasses, and results demonstrated no E. coli from the carcasses sampled showed resistance to bacitracin, lincomycin, penicillin, and vancomybin.
