campylobacter enteritis associated with canine infection.campylobacter fetus ss. jejuni has recently been recognised as a human enteric pathogen. five cases of campylobacter enteritis are described. all five patients had abdominal pain and diarrhoea. two of the five patients had bloody diarrhoea and relapses. all the patients had been in contact with young dogs which had had diarrhoea. campylobacter fetus ss. jejuni was isolated from these dogs or from their litter-mates. canine infection with campylobacter fetus ss. jejuni may be an important source ...197882001
campylobacter enteritis: clinical and epidemiologic features.campylobacter fetus subspecies (ssp.) jejuni has been recently recognized to cause diarrheal disease in man. to assess its importance as an enteric pathogen, we prospectively studied 514 patients with diarrhea. campylobacter fetus ssp. jejuni was isolated from the feces of 26 patients (5%) and seven of 11 of their symptomatic household contacts. this organism was isolated from the feces of only one of 18 asymptomatic household contacts and not at all from 157 other healthy persons. seventeen of ...1979380433

campylobacter jejuni infection in colorado: unexplained excess of cases in males.between january 1, 1981, and december 31, 1982, the colorado department of health received reports of 1,185 culture-confirmed cases of campylobacter jejuni infection. incidence rates were highest among infants less than 1 year old and among persons aged 20-29 years. the distribution of cases by sex showed a predominance among males at all ages except 40-59 years, the most marked predominance occurring in infants under 1 year. the higher rates for males were also significant for all ages combined ...19853923544
campylobacter enteritis associated with undercooked barbecued outbreak of campylobacter enteritis occurred in 1982 among 11 of 15 members and friends of an extended family gathering in colorado. median onset for illness, characterized by diarrhea, abdominal cramps, fever and headache, was four days after the party. illness was associated with eating undercooked chicken. two ill persons had stool specimens positive for c. jejuni. eight of ten ill persons tested had immunoglobulin-m-specific indirect fluorescent antibody (ifa) titers to c. jejuni greater ...19846496822
endemic campylobacter jejuni infection in colorado: identified risk factors.a study of persons with laboratory-confirmed sporadic campylobacter jejuni infection and of controls matched for age and sex in colorado in the summer of 1981 yielded odds ratio estimates significantly greater than 1 for the following risk factors: drinking raw water (10.74), drinking raw milk (6.93), eating undercooked chicken (2.77), and living in a household with a cat (3.21).19846696155
isolation of campylobacter fetus subsp jejuni from zoo animals.over a 1-year period, 619 fecal specimens from animals at the denver zoo were cultured for campylobacter fetus subsp jejuni. the organism was isolated from 35 animals, including 12 primates, 2 felids, a red panda, 13 hooved animals, 6 birds, and 1 reptile. of 44 cultured fecal specimens from diarrheal animals, 31.8% were positive for campylobacter, whereas only 5.6% of 575 specimens from animals without diarrhea were positive (p less than 0.001). among 25 isolates tested, 12 serotypes were repre ...19816799468
serologic study of two clusters of infection due to campylobacter jejuni.the serologic responses to campylobacter jejuni in persons involved in two clusters of infection and in control subjects were studied. in the first cluster, in which previously unexposed persons drank raw milk, the attack rate was high and elevated complement-fixing (cf) and specific igg and igm antibodies were demonstrated. in the second cluster, involving farmers who chronically drank raw milk, the attack rate was low, but titers of cf and igg antibodies were high in both affected and unaffect ...19836842019
reservoirs for human campylobacteriosis.the epidemiology of human enteric infection due to campylobacter fetus subspecies jejuni is not well understood. to determine whether an endogenous human reservoir is present, the rate of isolation of c. fetus subspecies jejuni from several populations of diarrheal and asymptomatic adults and children were compared. c. fetus subspecies jejuni was recovered from 4.1% of patients with diarrhea and 66.7% of household contacts of the index patients who themselves had diarrhea. carriage of organisms ...19807373089
fatalities associated with campylobacter jejuni infections.although campylobacter jejuni is now recognized as a common cause of gastroenteritis, fatalities associated with this infection in the united states have not been previously reported. two fatalities associated with c jejuni infections occurred over a two-year period in the denver metropolitan area. the first case was in a previously healthy 26-year-old woman who died following a two-day diarrheal illness. the second case was in a 69-year-old diabetic woman who died 19 hours after developing a ga ...19853989964
campylobacter enteritis associated with unpasteurized milk.campylobacter fetus ss. jejuni has recently been recognized as a human enteric pathogen. laboratory isolation has been hindered by its fastidious nature. methods for recovery of this organism from stool culture and a specific serologic test are described. an outbreak is reported in which three members of the same family became simultaneously ill with fever, severe abdominal cramps and diarrhea. c. fetus ss. jejuni was recovered from stool specimens from all three. a fourfold increase in serum im ...1979573969
