Phamaceutical practice and educational studies for campylobacter infection.
Campylobacter has become one of the most important foodborne pathogens in recent years, even in high-income countries. Especially in Europe, campylobacteriosis is his most commonly reported foodborne illness since 2005, and in the United States he is his second most reported, followed by infection by Salmonella spp. Campylobacter is a commensal microorganism in the gastrointestinal tract of many wild animals birds such as ducks and seagulls, domestic animals cows and pigs, and domestic animals e.g. dogs and cats, and is a cause of zoonotic diseases. Recently, many Campylobacter cases isolated from human infections have shown significant resistance to various antibiotics, such as tetracycline’s and fluoroquinolones. For these reasons, prevention of this infection plays an important role. There are many preventive measures to limit pathogen transmission and consequent illness, including health surveillance throughout the production chain, poultry vaccination and good food hygiene.Author(s): Novoka Rabella
