infections associated with ovine perinatal mortality in victoria.the occurrence of infections associated with perinatal mortality was investigated. in 1970, carcasses from 94 flocks distributed throughout victoria were examined by microbiological and histopathological techniques. carcasses from 4 of the same flocks were similarly examined in 1971. widespread occurrence of listeria monocytogenes and campylobacter fetus was demonstrated with l. monocytogenes being recognised in 25% of the flocks examined. no other bacterial pathogens commonly associated with ov ...1975809028
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
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
prevalence of bovine venereal disease in the victoria river district of the northern territory: likely economic effects and practicable control measures.area prevalences of bovine campylobacteriosis and trichomoniasis in the victoria river district (vrd) of the northern territory were determined by a survey of bulls. eighty-seven percent of herds were infected with campylobacteriosis and 65.6 percent were infected with trichomoniasis. the levels of infection recorded are likely to be causing significant reductions in reproductive rates. control of campylobacteriosis is unlikely to be practicable on a district basis, but in some herds it may be p ...19883401162

prevalence of enteric pathogens among community based asymptomatic individuals.the objective of this study was to describe the prevalence of pathogenic microorganisms in asymptomatic individuals in a community study in melbourne, australia.200010764030
a randomized, blinded, controlled trial investigating the gastrointestinal health effects of drinking water quality.a double-blinded, randomized, controlled trial was carried out in in melbourne, australia, to determine the contribution of drinking water to gastroenteritis. melbourne is one of the few major cities in the world that draws drinking water from a protected forest catchment with minimal water treatment (chlorination only). six hundred families were randomly allocated to receive either real or sham water treatment units (wtus) installed in their kitchen. real units were designed to remove viruses, ...200111564611
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
evaluation of campylobacter infection surveillance in victoria.campylobacter infection is a notifiable infectious disease in victoria and with more than 6,000 cases notified annually, it is the second most commonly notified disease after chlamydia. the objectives of campylobacter infection surveillance in victoria are to monitor the epidemiology of campylobacter infection, identify outbreaks, initiate control and prevention actions, educate the public in disease prevention, evaluate control and prevention measures, and plan services and priority setting. an ...201020677420
