    Abstract : Campylobacter jejuni and C. coli are together the most common cause of bacterial gastroenteritis in the European Union. Campylobacter can be transmitted to humans via contaminated water, but it is largely unknown how these bacteria survive in water. READ MORE

  2. 2. Epidemiology and population structure of Campylobacter jejuni and related organisms in wild birds

    Abstract : Campylobacter jejuni is one of the most common causes to bacterial gastroenteritis in the industrialised world. Also other species of the Campylobacter genus give rise to human infections. C. jejuni occurs in many different animal hosts and can be isolated from water sources. READ MORE

  3. 3. Amoebae as Hosts and Vectors for Spread of Campylobacter jejuni

    Abstract : Campylobacter jejuni is the leading bacterial cause of gastrointestinal diarrheal disease in humans worldwide. This zoonotic pathogen has a complex epidemiology due to its presence in many different host organisms. READ MORE

  4. 4. Characterization of Camplyobacter jejuni and C. coli from Swedish patients and chickens - antibiotic resistance, genomic diversity and detection

    Author : Anna-Clara Rönner; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Campylobacter jejuni is a Gram-negative, non-spore forming bacterium, which is currently the most common pathogen causing reported cases of food poisoning in Sweden, as well as in most other industrialized countries. Eating or drinking something containing these bacteria is often determined to be the source of infection and as few as 500 bacteria can be enough to cause illness. READ MORE

  5. 5. Host-pathogen interactions during Campylobacter and Yersinia infections

    Author : Nayyer Taheri; Anna Fahlgren; Maria Fällman; Sun Nyunt Wai; Elena Vikström; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Campylobacter jejuni; Yersinia pseudotuberculosis; OMV; bile; temperature; proteomic;

    Abstract : The innate immune system is known for protecting the host against invading pathogens, for instance enteropathogens infecting the gastrointestinal tract. The production of e.g. antimicrobial peptides, cytokines, and chemokines by innate immune cells and intestinal epithelial cells contribute to bacterial clearance. READ MORE
