The present study was conducted to estimate the prevalence of and to identify the risk factors for Campylobacter colonization in broiler flocks in Japan. Camplylobacter colonization status in flock was evaluated by culturing pooled caecal excrement from 124 broiler flocks. Potential exposure to risk factors was evaluated with a questionnaire for the broiler producers. Odds ratios (ORs) were calculated using a multivariable logistic regression analysis. The prevalence of Campylobacter‐positive… 
Prevalence and risk factors of Campylobacter infection in broiler flocks from southern Spain.
TLDR
Analysis indicated five factors associated with increased intra-flock prevalence: presence of dogs or cats on the farm, older age of the broiler flock, the application of thinning of flocks, the existence of windows with canvas blinds, the presence of rodents in the poultry house, and the treatment of drinking water and having an entrance room for access into theoultry house.
Climatic factors and prevalence of Campylobacter in commercial broiler flocks in Thailand
TLDR
Generalized estimating equations (GEE) revealed that the increased rainfall and relative humidity were associated with the increase of Campylobacter colonization in broiler flocks, while no relationship between ambient temperature and Campyloblacter colonization status was identified.
Prevalence and risk factors of Campylobacter infection in broiler and cockerel flocks in Mymensingh and Gazipur districts of Bangladesh.
TLDR
The study identified the factors that could lead to the setting of effective interventions in controlling Campylobacter infection in chickens to reduce campylobacteriaiosis in humans through meat consumption.
Prevalence and Antimicrobial Susceptibility of Campylobacter in Broiler Flocks in Japan
TLDR
The use of antimicrobial agents should be accompanied by various approaches such as prevention of Campylobacter colonization in broiler flocks with the aim of lowering the occurrence of Campyobacter infection in humans.
Prevalence, genotyping and risk factors of thermophilic Campylobacter spreading in organic turkey farms in Germany
TLDR
This study highlights the high prevalence and genotypic diversity of Campylobacter spp.
Prevalence and antimicrobial susceptibility of Salmonella in Japanese broiler flocks
TLDR
Salmonella is highly prevalent in Japanese broiler flocks, that 90·5% of Salmonella isolates were multidrug-resistant, and that S. Infantis frequently exhibited resistance to cephalosporin antimicrobial agents.
The presence of Campylobacter jejuni in broiler houses: Results of a longitudinal study
TLDR
Results showed that C. jejuni water-line contamination was related to flock contamination and could help to continuously make it infected with C.Jejuni.
Combined Campylobacter jejuni and Campylobacter coli Rapid Testing and Molecular Epidemiology in Conventional Broiler Flocks
TLDR
The combination of techniques poses an advantage over risk assessment studies based on cultures alone, as, in the case of Campylobacter, occurrence of a high variety of genotypes might be present among a broiler flock.
Effect of climatic elements on Campylobacter colonization in broiler flocks reared in southern Japan from 2008 to 2012
TLDR
The results of this study demonstrate the effects of air temperature, humidity, and solar radiation on Campylobacter colonization in broiler chickens, and are potentially important for developing strategies to reduce the risk of Campyobacter contamination in broilers reared in Japan.
Elucidation of colonization time and prevalence of thermophilic Campylobacter species during turkey rearing using multiplex polymerase chain reaction.
TLDR
Two turkey flocks (male and female) and the environment of their house were investigated for the presence of thermophilic Campylobacter and multiplex PCR proved to be a rapid, sensitive, and cheap tool for the diagnosis of Campylabacter contamination.

Risk factors for sporadic Campylobacter infections: results of a case-control study in southeastern Norway
TLDR
In 1989 and 1990, a case-control study designed to identify risk factors for sporadic infections with thermotolerant Campylobacter bacteria was conducted in three counties in southeastern Norway, finding the risk associated with consumption of sausages at a barbecue could not be attributed to cross-contamination from poultry products.
Effect of Drinking Water Chlorination on Campylobacter spp. Colonization of Broilers
TLDR
Chlorination of flock drinking water at the levels tested in this study was not effective in decreasing colonization by Campylobacter spp.
Sequential spread of Campylobacter infection in a multipen broiler house.
TLDR
Serotyping and fla typing methods were applied to differentiate all the C. jejuni strains isolated and found the use of an entrance door unprotected by boot dips during the second flock study did not prevent infection.
Cecal carriage of Campylobacter and Salmonella in Dutch broiler flocks at slaughter: a one-year study.
TLDR
A positive correlation was found between Campylobacter and Salmonella colonization within flocks, with the highest contamination rate during the period June to September and the lowest in March.
Colonization of broiler chickens by waterborne Campylobacter jejuni
TLDR
An intervention program based on water chlorination, shed drinking system cleaning and disinfection, and withdrawal of furazolidone from feed reduced the proportion of birds colonized with campylobacter from 81 to 7% and was associated with a 1,000- to 10,000% reduction incampylobacters recoverable from the carcasses.
Association of antimicrobial resistance in Campylobacter isolated from food-producing animals with antimicrobial use on farms.
On 1,374 food-producing animal farms in 2001-2004, we investigated the influence of antimicrobial usage within 6 months before a survey conducted on antimicrobial resistance in Campylobacter.
Use of Multilocus Sequence Typing To Investigate the Association between the Presence of Campylobacter spp. in Broiler Drinking Water and Campylobacter Colonization in Broilers
TLDR
Evidence is provided that drinking water could be associated with broiler infection by campylobacter jejuni and that the sequence of contamination or whether the source was within or outside the shed was not determined.
Contamination of meat with Campylobacter jejuni in Saitama, Japan.
TLDR
RAPD analysis shows that contamination with C. jejuni is of intestinal origin, and it is found in domestic retailed poultry and imported poultry, but not in beef or pork.
