The article discusses the implications of regulating the virulence of Campylobacter jejuni by norepinephrine to food production animals and transmission of infection to man. The bacterial stess response imposed by bacterial environment on the organism and the host's norepinephrine stress response potentiate the growth and virulence of organisms. Stress-free animals for food may implicate for preventing acquisition and potential transmission of disease accommodated by Camphorate jejuni.
