description and sources of contamination by campylobacter spp. of river water destined for human consumption in brittany, france.presence or absence of campylobacter spp. in water of five rivers upstream from an intake point for drinking water production was investigated, and isolates genetically compared with human, pig and poultry isolates in order to determine their source. river water and drinking water obtained from these rivers were sampled one time per month, over a period of one year, and tested for campylobacter. isolates were typed by pfge. campylobacter was not detected in treated drinking water, but 50% of the ...200919942377
prevalence of and risk factors for campylobacter colonisation in broiler flocks at the end of the rearing period in france.1. a study was conducted to estimate the prevalence and quantification by species of campylobacter infection in broiler flocks at the end of the rearing period and to identify associated risk factors. 2. a questionnaire about the rearing period was completed and caecal samples were collected from 121 broiler flocks in brittany, france, during 2008. 3. campylobacter was isolated in 87 out of 121 flocks--a prevalence of 71.9% (95% ci, 63.7-80.1%), including 40.5% of campylobacter jejuni and 29.8% ...201425010255
campylobacter from sows in farrow-to-finish pig farms: risk indicators and genetic diversity.sows have been identified as a source of campylobacter contamination in piglets. we carried out a one-year study, in 2008, at 53 farrow-to-finish farms in brittany, france, to determine the proportion of sows excreting campylobacter. we also determined the genotypes of the campylobacter isolates. moreover, generalized estimating equations including repeated effects were used to assess the association between management practices and farm characteristics, and risk of campylobacter shedding by sow ...201121802224
