    Campylobacter is a common cause of gastroenteritis in the United States. We conducted a population-based case-control study to determine risk factors for sporadic Campylobacter infection. During a 12-month study, we enrolled 1316 patients with culture-confirmed Campylobacter infections from 7...

    Background: Human campylobacteriosis has become a major foodborne disease, although little information is available about the role it plays in the scenario of foodborne diseases in Brazil. Since thermophilic Campylobacter (C.) species are often found in the intestinal tract of broiler chickens,...

    Campylobacter is a commensal in poultry, and therefore, poultry and poultry products are major sources of Campylobacter infections in humans. Fluoroquinolones inhibit the growth of Campylobacter and other microorganisms by binding to bacterial DNA gyrase and DNA topoisomerase IV. These enzymes...
