BACKGROUND The measurement of serum antibodies to Campylobacter spp. has been used to investigate links between prior Campylobacter infections and the development of Guillain-Barre syndrome and its variants. Little is known of the serum antibody response to acute infections in the short- or long-term. AIMS The aims of the present study were to investigate the normal serum response to an acute Campylobacter infection and the sensitivity and specificity of anti-Campylobacter antibodies in… CONTINUE READING
