an outbreak of acute enteritis due to campylobacter fetus subspecies jejuni at a nursery school of outbreak of acute enteritis due to campylobacter fetus subspecies jejuni involving a total of 35 out of 74 children occurred at a nursery school of tokyo in january 1979 and lasted for 7 days. it was the first case of a community outbreak of the disease to be recognized in japan. the major symptoms observed in the patients consisted of diarrhea (88%), fever (82%), abdominal pain (39%), and vomiting (6.1%). the rate of isolation of the organism from the patients was 39%. sera of four patients ...19807432196
[evolution of susceptibilities of campylobacter jejuni isolated from diarrhoeal cases to fluoroquinolones in tokyo].recently, the increase in the number of resistant strains of campylobacter jejuni to fluoroquinolone has been reported in european countries. we also studied antimicrobial susceptibilities of 600 clinical isolates of campylobacter jejuni isolated during a 6 year period from 1989 through 1994 in four tokyo metropolitan hospitals. the susceptibility to 6 antimicrobial agents, norfloxacin (nflx), ofloxacin (oflx), ciprofloxacin (cpfx), nalidixic acid (na), erythromycin (em) and tetracycline (tc) we ...19969011115
[bacteriological and virological studies on the cause of sporadic acute gastroenteritis in tama, tokyo (1991-1996)].between may 1991 and december 1996, bacteriological and virological investigations on the fecal samples from patient of infantile diarrhea (155 cases), or infectious gastroenteritis (1,409 cases) diagnosed with 9 medical institutions in tama of tokyo were carried out. of 1,564 samples, 722 (46.2%) were enteropathogen positive cases, and mixed infection was also observed in about 15% of the positive cases. among 13 different kinds of enteropathogens identified, the most prevalent one was pathogen ...19989695470
epidemiology of campylobacter jejuni isolated from patients with guillain-barré and fisher syndromes in japan.campylobacter jejuni isolation is the standard for the diagnosis of this type of bacterial infection, but there have been no epidemiological studies of a large number of c. jejuni isolates from patients with guillain-barre syndrome (gbs) and fisher syndrome (fs). for 13 years, stool specimens from gbs/fs patients have been sent from 378 hospitals throughout japan to the tokyo metropolitan institute of public health. a total of 113 strains (11%) were isolated from the stool specimens from 1,049 p ...200515634991
[the serotype distribution of campylobacter jejuni strains among gastroenteritis in hospitals over 7 year period in tokyo].campylobacter jejuni strains isolated from gastroenteritis at 4 general hospitals of tokyo metropolitan during the period from 1981 to 1987 were serotype according to the slide agglutination test (tck system) developed by the tokyo metropolitan research laboratory of public health. two thousand four hundred seventy-nine strains isolated from sporadic cases among infants and children, 1,962 (78.5%) were typed by 33 typing sera numbered tck 1 through tck 33 and leaving 537 strains (21.5%) untypabl ...19902230367
antimicrobial susceptibility and mechanism of quinolone resistance in campylobacter jejuni strains isolated from diarrheal patients in a hospital in tokyo.we determined the minimum inhibitory concentrations of six types of antimicrobial agents for 523 strains of campylobacter jejuni that were isolated from diarrheal patients in a general hospital in tokyo during the period between 2003 and 2005. it was revealed that 20.2%, 22.9%, 6.7%, and 0.6% of all the c. jejuni strains tested were resistant to ciprofloxacin (cpfx), nalidixic acid, ampicillin, and fosfomycin, respectively. all the strains were susceptible to clarithromycin and erythromycin. to ...200818936886
