longitudinal prevalence, faecal shedding and molecular characterisation of campylobacter spp. and salmonella enterica in sheep.faecal excretion of campylobacter spp. and salmonella enterica in sheep in australia was determined using a quantitative multiplex pcr (qpcr) targeting the campylobacter spp. purine biosynthesis gene (pura) and the s.‚ÄČenterica outer membrane protein (ompf). the mutiplex qpcr was specific and campylobacter spp. and s.‚ÄČenterica were each detected with a sensitivity of 5 organisms/µl faecal dna extract. this multiplex qpcr was used to determine the prevalence and concentration of campylobacter spp. ...201425175721
pathogen presence in european starlings inhabiting commercial piggeries in south australia.the majority of bacterial diarrhea-causing illnesses in domestic pigs result from infection with escherichia coli, salmonella spp., or campylobacter spp. these bacterial enteropathogens also correspond with the most-common bacteria isolated from wild birds. additionally, viral pathogens such as avian influenza virus (aiv), west nile virus (wnv, including kunjin disease), and newcastle disease virus (ndv) may also be carried and transmitted by birds in australia. introduced european starlings (st ...201627309283
an outbreak of campylobacter jejuni infection among conference delegates.campylobacter infection is one of the most commonly reported foodborne diseases in australia however, reported campylobacter outbreaks are rare. this report describes such an outbreak among delegates attending a 10 day international academic meeting in south australia during may 2001. a retrospective cohort study of the 29 delegates who attended the conference was conducted. a questionnaire was sent by email with a response rate of 93 per cent. ten cases (onset of diarrhoea while attending the c ...200314510066
dna relatedness and biochemical features of campylobacter spp. isolated in central and south australia.investigations of the etiology of diarrhea in patients in south australia and the northern territory showed that campylobacter spp. other than campylobacter jejuni and c. coli were common in children. campylobacters which were hippurate positive, nitrate negative, and susceptible to cephalothin and polymyxins were shown to be closely related to c. jejuni by dna studies. thermotolerant catalase-negative campylobacters were also isolated. these were h2s negative and biochemically resembled the cat ...19852991331
campylobacter enteritis in south australia.campylobacter jejuni was isolated on coproculture from 13 of 224 patients with suspected infectious diarrhoea whose faecal specimens were examined during a three-month period. these organisms were not isolated from 530 specimens received from asymptomatic and healthy individuals. diarrhoea and cramping abdominal pain generally lasting two to three days were the major symptoms, though occasional patients had a more prolonged illness. ingestion of campylobacter resulted in enteric infection with i ...1978732725
low-level fluoroquinolone resistance among campylobacter jejuni isolates in australia.ciprofloxacin-resistant campylobacter jejuni isolates obtained from infected patients in australia have not been detected in studies of isolates from specific geographic areas. the australian government has prohibited the use of fluoroquinolone in food-producing animals. to assess the impact of this policy, we have examined the antimicrobial susceptibility of isolates from 5 australian states.200616619147
a prolonged outbreak of campylobacter infection at a training facility.campylobacter outbreaks are rarely detected despite campylobacter being the most common food-borne illness notified to public health authorities. we report a prolonged outbreak of campylobacter occurring over a three month period at a training facility. seventy-eight cases were detected, 16 of which were confirmed campylobacter infections. in seven affected groups of people using the facility, the attack rate ranged between 19% and 67%. an investigation of one sporting group showed that illness ...19979090165
consumption of foods by young children with diagnosed campylobacter infection - a pilot case-control study.to determine whether parentally reported habitual intake of specific foods differed between children with diagnosed campylobacter jejuni infection and children of a comparison group without diagnosed infection.200414972076
