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
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
comparison between children treated at home and those requiring hospital admission for rotavirus and other enteric pathogens associated with acute diarrhea in melbourne, australia.the etiology of acute diarrhea in children less than 42 months of age attending one pediatric hospital in melbourne, australia, was studied during a 7-month period encompassing the winter of 1984. pathogens identified in 157 children treated as outpatients with mild disease were compared with those in 232 children hospitalized with severe disease. the pathogens (and frequencies among outpatients and inpatients, respectively) detected were rotaviruses (32.5 and 50.9%), enteric adenoviruses (8.9 a ...19863020082
use of ribosomal rna gene restriction patterns to investigate two outbreaks of campylobacter enteritis in melbourne, australia.the analysis of ribosomal rna (rrna) gene patterns (ribotyping) has been used to differentiate strains within bacterial species. we used this method to investigate two outbreaks of campylobacter enteritis that occurred recently in melbourne, australia. the first outbreak involved seven patients although isolates from only five patients were available for typing. the second outbreak consisted of three patients infected with human immunodeficiency virus (hiv) on the same ward of a hospital. analys ...19921281233
