campylobacterosis. 1976947862
campylobacter jejuni enteritis in honolulu, hawaii.the incidence of campylobacter jejuni in patients with acute diarrhoea was studied in honolulu, hawaii. c. jejuni was recovered from 8.7% of diarrhoeal stools, compared to isolation rates of 4.2% for salmonella and 3.8% for shigella. c. jejuni occurred mainly in the summer and autumn, and in all age and racial groups. there was a significantly higher incidence of abdominal pain, fever history, bloody stools and faecal leucocytes in patients with campylobacter enteritis.19836636278
sporadic campylobacter jejuni infections in hawaii: associations with prior antibiotic use and commercially prepared chicken.campylobacter is the most common cause of bacterial foodborne illness in the united states, and hawaii has the highest rate of campylobacter jejuni infections in the nation. a case-control study was conducted to determine indigenous exposures that contribute to the high incidence of sporadic c. jejuni infection in hawaii. a total of 211 case patients with diarrhea and confirmed campylobacter infection was enrolled, along with 1 age- and telephone exchange-matched control subject for each patient ...200111237847
bacterial pathogens in hawaiian coastal streams-associations with fecal indicators, land cover, and water quality.this work aimed to understand the distribution of five bacterial pathogens in o'ahu coastal streams and relate their presence to microbial indicator concentrations, land cover of the surrounding watersheds, and physical-chemical measures of stream water quality. twenty-two streams were sampled four times (in december and march, before sunrise and at high noon) to capture seasonal and time of day variation. salmonella, campylobacter, staphylococcus aureus, vibrio vulnificus, and v. parahaemolytic ...201121492899
swimmer risk of gastrointestinal illness from exposure to tropical coastal waters impacted by terrestrial dry-weather runoff.this study used molecular methods to measure concentrations of four enteric viruses (adenovirus, enterovirus, norovirus gi, and norovirus gii) and fecal source tracking markers (human, ruminant, and pig bacteroidales) in land-based runoff from 22 tropical streams on o'ahu, hawai'i. each stream was sampled twice in the morning and afternoon during dry weather. viruses and human bacteroidales were widespread in the streams. watershed septic tank densities were positively associated with higher occ ...201121780808
