    Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS), an acute demyelinating peripheral neuropathy, may be triggered by an acute infectious illness; infection with Campylobacter jejuni is the most frequently reported antecedent event. In Japan, O:19 is the most common serotype among GBS-associated C. jejuni...

    Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) is recognized as a complication that occurs after Campylobacter infection. Certain Penner serotypes, such as HS:19, are linked particularly to GBS in some parts of the world, and there is good evidence for restricted genetic diversity in these isolates. However,...

    Infection with Campylobacter jejuni serotype HS:19 is associated with the development of Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS). To determine whether a particular HS:19 clone is associated with GBS, multilocus enzyme electrophoresis (MLEE) was used to analyze a worldwide collection of isolates. There...

    Campylobacter jejuni is the prime cause of foodborne bacterial gastroenteritis. An important complication of C. jejuni enteritis is Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS), an immune-mediated dis-order of the peripheral nerve. The presence of C. jejuni DNA in peripheral blood mononuclear cells...

    Background: Guillain-Barr� syndrome (GBS) is a post-infectious polyradiculoneuropathy, frequently associated with antecedent Campylobacter jejuni (C. jejuni) infection. The presence of sialic acid on C. jejuni lipo-oligosaccharide (LOS) is considered a risk factor for development of GBS as...

    Evidence of recent or ongoing Campylobacter jejuni infection has been found in approximately one out of every four cases of Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS). It is increasingly accepted that C. jejuni infection is an important causal factor for GBS. However, the likelihood of GBS' occurring...
