Introduction and spread of thermophilic campylobacters in broiler flocks


Veterinary Record 131(25-26): 574-576
Introduction and spread of thermophilic campylobacters in broiler flocks
Campylobacteriosis is the most commonly reported infectious cause of human gastroenteritis in developed countries and broiler chickens are considered to be the major food-borne source of the infection. The control of the infection in man depends upon its control in broiler flocks but the epidemiology in poultry is poorly understood. Up to 50% of broiler flocks may be infected and most of the birds in an infected flock carry the organisms until slaughter.
