campylobacter enteritis associated with foodborne transmission.during an outbreak of gastrointestinal illness at a boys summer camp in connecticut in june-july 1980, campylobacter jejuni was isolated from 16 of 41 ill persons but from none of 63 controls (p less than 0.001). when the indirect fluorescent antibody assay was used, cross-titering serum and isolates from five patients showed all isolates to be identical. lack of serologic response in culture-negative ill persons suggested that a second etiologic agent may have been involved. ten convalescent ca ...19827148815

incidence of foodborne illnesses reported by the foodborne diseases active surveillance network (foodnet)-1997. foodnet working group.in 1997, the foodborne diseases active surveillance program (foodnet) conducted active surveillance for culture-confirmed cases of campylobacter, escherichia coli o157, listeria, salmonella, shigella, vibrio, yersinia, cyclospora, and cryptosporidium in five emerging infections program sites. foodnet is a collaborative effort of the centers for disease control and prevention's national center for infectious diseases, the united states department of agriculture's food safety and inspection servic ...200010852576
outbreak of campylobacteriosis at a senior center.in august 1997, campylobacteriosis was diagnosed in four older persons in one connecticut town. we investigated this outbreak to determine its cause and to identify appropriate preventive measures. we also analyzed surveillance data to assess the impact of campylobacteriosis among persons age 65 years and older in connecticut.200111300242
hemolytic-uremic syndrome and escherichia coli o121 at a lake in connecticut, 1999.non-o157 shiga toxin-producing escherichia coli (stec) have emerged as an important public health problem. outbreaks attributed to non-o157 stec rarely are reported. in 1999, follow-up of routine surveillance reports of children with hemolytic- uremic syndrome (hus) identified a small cluster of 3 cases of hus, all of whom had spent overlapping time in a connecticut lake community in the week before onset of symptoms. we conducted an investigation to determine the magnitude and source of the out ...200111581467
salmonella, campylobacter and enterococcus spp.: their antimicrobial resistance profiles and their spatial relationships in a synoptic study of the upper oconee river basin.rivers may serve as reservoirs for enteric organisms. very little is known about the boundaries of microbial communities in moving bodies of water so this study was undertaken to find the limits of distribution of some bacteria, focusing on enteric organisms. the presence of salmonella, campylobacter, and enterococcus spp. and the antimicrobial resistance phenotypes carried by these organisms was evaluated for the upper oconee river basin, a small river in the lower piedmont of northeastern geor ...200817687594
continued decline in the incidence of campylobacter infections, foodnet 1996-2006.campylobacter is a leading cause of foodborne illness worldwide. in the united states, changes in the incidence of culture-confirmed campylobacter infections have been monitored by the foodborne diseases active surveillance network (foodnet) since 1996. in 2006, the incidence of culture-confirmed campylobacter infection in the foodnet sites was 12.7 per 100,000 persons. this represents a 30% decline (95% confidence = 35% to 24% decrease) compared to the 1996-1998 illness baseline; however, most ...200818767978
bacterial contamination of hands increases risk of cross-contamination among low-income puerto rican meal preparers.to examine the association of microbial contamination of the meal preparer's hands with microbial status of food and kitchen/utensil surfaces during home preparation of a "chicken and salad" meal.200919879494
