biotypes, serogroups and antibiotic susceptibility of campylobacter jejuni and campylobacter coli in chile.phenotypic markers were studied in 105 strains of thermophilic campylobacters isolated from human beings, animals and drinking water in santiago, chile. the strains were identified as campylobacter jejuni (n = 49) and campylobacter coli (n = 56). biotypes i and ii (lior schema) accounted for 96% c. jejuni isolates, the other 4% being biotype iv but the two biotypes of c. coli were about equally represented. a total of 28 serogroups (lior's heat-labile antigens) were identified. lior 13, 9, 79, 2 ...19902181024

[antimicrobial susceptibility of campylobacter jejuni isolates from stool cultures in santiago, chile].campylobacter jejuni is a common agent of enterocolitis in humans. campylobacteriosis has been recognized as a zoonotic disease whose reservoir is the intestinal flora of poultry. the reposition of fluid and electrolytes is the recommended treatment, and antimicrobials are required only in severe and/or in prolonged disease. given the emergence of resistance to drugs commonly used in the treatment of acute diarrhea, we studied the antimicrobial susceptibility of 73 strains of campylobacter jejun ...200920098784
