multilocus sequence typing, pulsed-field gel electrophoresis, and fla short variable region typing of clonal complexes of campylobacter jejuni strains of human, bovine, and poultry origins in luxembourg.campylobacter jejuni is the most common cause of bacterial gastroenteritis in luxembourg, with a marked seasonal peak during summer. the majority of these infections are thought to be sporadic, and the relative contribution of potential sources and reservoirs is still poorly understood. we monitored human cases from june to september 2006 (n = 124) by molecular characterization of isolates with the aim of rapidly detecting temporally related cases. in addition, isolates from poultry meat (n = 36 ...200818931296
human campylobacteriosis in luxembourg, 2010-2013: a case-control study combined with multilocus sequence typing for source attribution and risk factor analysis.campylobacteriosis has increased markedly in luxembourg during recent years. we sought to determine which campylobacter genotypes infect humans, where they may originate from, and how they may infect humans. multilocus sequence typing was performed on 1153 campylobacter jejuni and 136 c. coli human strains to be attributed to three putative animal reservoirs (poultry, ruminants, pigs) and to environmental water using the asymmetric island model. a nationwide case-control study (2010-2013) for do ...201626860258
