occurrence of plasmids and tetracycline resistance among campylobacter jejuni and campylobacter coli isolated from whole market chickens and clinical samples.twenty whole market chickens, purchased from 10 different stores in the taipei metropolitan area, were examined for the presence of campylobacter jejuni and campylobacter coli. the microorganisms were recovered from 95% of the chickens. a survey of different sites on--breast, thigh and tail--showed that contamination was equally common on all these sites. one hundred and sixty-seven chicken isolates and the 41 clinical isolates of campylobacter jejuni were examined for the occurrence of plasmid ...19947703010
antimicrobial susceptibilities of campylobacter jejuni and coli by using e-test in report the in vitro antibiotic susceptibility of campylobacter species, we determined the mics of 6 antibiotics by e-test for 93 human clinical strains and 35 chicken strains. the 6 antimicrobial agents tested were gentamicin, erythromycin, clindamycin, tetracycline, ciprofloxacin, and nalidixic acid. isolates from humans were significantly more susceptible than chicken strains to erythromycin, clindamycin and ciprofloxacin. nearly all of the human and chicken strains were susceptible to gent ...19989670357
incidence and clinical manifestations of campylobacter enteritis in central taiwan.campylobacter species are recognized as a major cause of acute gastroenteritis in humans throughout the world and are increasingly associated with the development of guillain-barré syndrome. the age distribution of persons and the seasonal patterns of campylobacter infection are different in many developed and developing countries. the present study reports the investigation of the clinical and epidemiologic features of campylobacter infections in central taiwan.19989684510
one-year (2003) nationwide pork carcass microbiological baseline data survey in taiwan.from january through december 2003, swab samples from 1,650 pork carcasses were collected from 39 slaughter plants in taiwan. these samples were analyzed for the prevalence of indicator microorganisms and specific pathogens. viable aerobic bacteria, total coliforms, and escherichia coli were recovered from 100, 95.3, and 87.5% of these carcasses, respectively. of those carcasses that harbored bacteria, the mean aerobic plate, total coliform, and escherichia coli counts were 4.0, 0.6, and 0.1 log ...200515771166
amplified fragment length polymorphism, serotyping, and quinolone resistance of campylobacter jejuni and campylobacter coli strains from chicken-related samples and humans in taiwan.the high-resolution genotyping method of amplified fragment length polymorphism (aflp) analysis was used to study the genetic relationships between campylobacter jejuni isolates from chicken-related samples (n = 32) and humans (n = 27) as well as between campylobacter coli isolates from chicken-related samples (n = 27) and humans (n = 5). these isolates were collected between 1994 and 2003 in taiwan. all c. jejuni and c. coli isolates showed highly heterogeneous fingerprints. c. jejuni isolates ...200616629019
pathogenic microbiological baseline survey of pork carcasses in taiwan.from 2004 to 2010, pork carcass swabs from state-inspected slaughter plants in taiwan were intermittently analyzed to determine the prevalence of selected pathogenic microorganisms associated with foodborne illness. the prevalences of staphylococcus aureus each year from 2006 to 2010 were 6.6, 10.8, 5.1, 6.4, and 7.4%, respectively, while those of listeria monocytogenes were 1.2% in 2004, 1.3% in 2005, and 3.5% in 2008. the prevalences of clostridium perfringens were 0.9% in 2004, 3.2% in 2005, ...201323726203
bacteremia caused by antimicrobial resistant campylobacter species at a medical center in taiwan, 1998-2008.this study was intended to delineate the clinical and microbiological characteristics of patients with bacteremia caused by campylobacter species.201222771419
