Physiological characterization of viable-but-nonculturable Campylobacter jejuni cells. (1/1378)

Campylobacter jejuni is a pathogenic, microaerophilic, gram-negative, mesophilic bacterium. Three strains isolated from humans with enteric campylobacteriosis were able to survive at high population levels (10(7) cells ml-1) as viable-but-nonculturable (VBNC) forms in microcosm water. The VBNC forms of the three C. jejuni strains were enumerated and characterized by using 5-cyano-2,3-ditolyl tetrazolium chloride-4',6-diamino-2-phenylindole staining. Cellular volume, adenylate energy charge, internal pH, intracellular potassium concentration, and membrane potential values were determined in stationary-phase cell suspensions after 48 h of culture on Columbia agar and after 1 to 30 days of incubation in microcosm water and compared. A notable increase in cell volume was observed with the VBNC state; the average cell volumes were 1.73 microliter mg of protein-1 for the culturable form and 10.96 microliter mg of protein-1 after 30 days of incubation in microcosm water. Both the internal potassium content and the membrane potential were significantly lower in the VBNC state than in the culturable state. Culturable cells were able to maintain a difference of 0.6 to 0.9 pH unit between the internal and external pH values; with VBNC cells this difference decreased progressively with time of incubation in microcosm water. Measurements of the cellular adenylate nucleotide concentrations revealed that the cells had a low adenylate energy charge (0.66 to 0.26) after 1 day of incubation in microcosm water, and AMP was the only nucleotide detected in the three strains after 30 days of incubation in microcosm water.  (+info)

Campylobacter jejuni--an emerging foodborne pathogen. (2/1378)

Campylobacter jejuni is the most commonly reported bacterial cause of foodborne infection in the United States. Adding to the human and economic costs are chronic sequelae associated with C. jejuni infection--Guillian-Barre syndrome and reactive arthritis. In addition, an increasing proportion of human infections caused by C. jejuni are resistant to antimicrobial therapy. Mishandling of raw poultry and consumption of undercooked poultry are the major risk factors for human campylobacteriosis. Efforts to prevent human illness are needed throughout each link in the food chain.  (+info)

The risk of Guillain-Barre syndrome following infection with Campylobacter jejuni. (3/1378)

To estimate the incidence of Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS) following Campylobacter jejuni infection (CI) we studied three populations where outbreaks of CI had occurred involving an estimated 8000 cases. No case of GBS was detected in the 6 months following the outbreaks in the local populations. The point estimate for the risk of GBS following CI estimated in this study was 0 in 8000 (95% confidence interval 0-3).  (+info)

Clonality of Campylobacter sputorum bv. paraureolyticus determined by macrorestriction profiling and biotyping, and evidence for long-term persistent infection in cattle. (4/1378)

Eighteen strains of Campylobacter sputorum bv. paraureolyticus (isolated over a 12-month period from seven dairy cows contained in a single herd) were examined by resistotyping, and macrorestriction profiling using pulsed field gel electrophoresis (PFGE). The resistotypes of these strains were identical, although repeat testing indicated resistance to metronidazole was not a reliable trait for typing purposes. Five SmaI-derived genotypes were identified among the 18 strains. In 5 of 7 cows, isolates obtained from the same animal, but from different time periods, were genotypically indistinguishable, indicating persistence of infection. Macrorestriction profiles of 5 strains representing the 5 SmaI genotypes and 8 other strains of C. sputorum from various sources, were prepared using 4 endonucleases (SmaI, SalI, BamHI and KpnI). The only other strain of C. sputorum bv. paraureolyticus examined (a Canadian isolate from human faeces), was found to have a SmaI macrorestriction profile identical with one of the five clones isolated from the cattle. Moreover, SalI and BamHI profiles of all bv. paraureolyticus strains were similar, while digestion with KpnI was not observed. By contrast, the seven strains of C. sputorum bv. sputorum yielded various macrorestriction profiles with all the enzymes used, and features distinguishing the two biovars studied could be identified. This study indicates that C. sputorum can persist in cattle for at least 12 months and exhibits a clonal population genetic structure.  (+info)

Detection of small numbers of Campylobacter jejuni and Campylobacter coli cells in environmental water, sewage, and food samples by a seminested PCR assay. (5/1378)

A rapid and sensitive assay was developed for detection of small numbers of Campylobacter jejuni and Campylobacter coli cells in environmental water, sewage, and food samples. Water and sewage samples were filtered, and the filters were enriched overnight in a nonselective medium. The enrichment cultures were prepared for PCR by a rapid and simple procedure consisting of centrifugation, proteinase K treatment, and boiling. A seminested PCR based on specific amplification of the intergenic sequence between the two Campylobacter flagellin genes, flaA and flaB, was performed, and the PCR products were visualized by agarose gel electrophoresis. The assay allowed us to detect 3 to 15 CFU of C. jejuni per 100 ml in water samples containing a background flora consisting of up to 8, 700 heterotrophic organisms per ml and 10,000 CFU of coliform bacteria per 100 ml. Dilution of the enriched cultures 1:10 with sterile broth prior to the PCR was sometimes necessary to obtain positive results. The assay was also conducted with food samples analyzed with or without overnight enrichment. As few as +info)

Ganglioside GM1 mimicry in Campylobacter strains from sporadic infections in the United States. (6/1378)

To determine whether GM1-like epitopes in Campylobacter species are specific to O serotypes associated with Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS) or whether they are frequent among random Campylobacter isolates causing enteritis, 275 random enteritis-associated isolates of Campylobacter jejuni were analyzed. To determine whether GM1-like epitopes in Campylobacter species are specific to O serotypes associated with Guillan-Barre syndrome (GBS) or whether they are frequent among random Campylobacter isolates causing enteritis, 275 enteritis-associated isolates, randomly collected in the United States, were analyzed using a cholera-toxin binding assay [corrected]. Overall, 26.2% of the isolates were positive for the GM1-like epitope. Of the 36 different O serotypes in the sample, 21 (58.3%) contained no strains positive for GM1, whereas in 6 serotypes (16.7%), >50% of isolates were positive for GM1. GBS-associated serotypes were more likely to contain strains positive for GM1 than were non-GBS-associated serotypes (37.8% vs. 15.1%, P=.0116). The results suggest that humans are frequently exposed to strains exhibiting GM1-like mimicry and, while certain serotypes may be more likely to possess GM1-like epitopes, the presence of GM1-like epitopes on Campylobacter strains does not itself trigger GBS.  (+info)

Cloning, sequencing and molecular analysis of the Campylobacter jejuni groESL bicistronic operon. (7/1378)

The groESL bicistronic operon from the enteric pathogen Campylobacter jejuni was cloned and sequenced. It consists of two ORFs encoding proteins with molecular masses of 9.5 and 57.9 kDa, which showed a high degree of homology to other bacterial GroES and GroEL proteins. Northern blot analysis suggested that the groESL operon is transcribed as a bicistronic mRNA, and its steady-state level was markedly increased after temperature upshift. By primer extension assay, one potential transcription start point preceding the groESL genes could be demonstrated, and a putative promoter region compatible with both Escherichia coli and C. jejuni sigma70 consensus sequences was identified. A conserved inverted repeat, which is believed to be involved in the regulation of the groESL genes, was found between the -10 promoter box and the groES translation start site. The complete coding region of groEL was fused with pET-22b(+) and expressed in E. coli as a His6-tagged recombinant protein (rCjHsp60-His). After purification, the protein was recognized by an anti-HSP60 monoclonal antibody. ELISA and Western immunoblotting experiments showed that IgG and IgA antibody responses against rCjHsp60-His were not significantly increased in sera from 24 patients with sporadic Campylobacter infection when compared to sera from 16 healthy controls.  (+info)

Distinct immunoglobulin class and immunoglobulin G subclass patterns against ganglioside GQ1b in Miller Fisher syndrome following different types of infection. (8/1378)

We studied serum antibodies against gangliosides GQ1b and GM1 in 13 patients with Miller Fisher syndrome (MFS) and in 18 patients with Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS) with cranial nerve involvement. Anti-GQ1b titers were elevated in all patients with MFS cases (immunoglobulin G [IgG] > IgA, IgM), and in 8 of the 18 with GBS. Lower frequencies of increased anti-GM1 titers were observed in MFS patients (3 of 13), as well as in GBS patients (5 of 18). During the course of MFS, anti-GQ1b titers of all Ig classes decreased within 3 weeks after onset. By contrast, anti-GM1 titers (mainly IgM) transiently increased during the course of MFS in five of six patients, suggesting a nonspecific secondary immune response. In patients with MFS following respiratory infections, IgG was the major anti-GQ1b Ig class (six of six patients) and IgG3 was the major subclass (five of six). In contrast, four of five patients with MFS following gastrointestinal infections showed predominance of anti-GQ1b IgA or IgM over IgG and predominance of the IgG2 subclass; anti-GQ1b IgG (IgG3) prevailed in one patient only. These distinct Ig patterns strongly suggest that different infections may trigger different mechanisms of anti-GQ1b production, such as via T-cell-dependent as opposed to T-cell-independent pathways. Thus, the origin of antibodies against GQ1b in MFS may be determined by the type of infectious agent that precipitates the disease.  (+info)

Duodenal biopsy specimens from 80 patients with chronic renal failure, who were undergoing haemodialysis, were examined by light microscopy for evidence of inflammation, gastric metaplasia, and Campylobacter pylori infection. Chronic duodenitis was present in 47 (59%) of patients, of whom only seven (9%) showed evidence of active inflammation. Gastric metaplasia was present in 50 (62.5%) of patients, yet Campylobacter pylori was identified in only two patients (2.5%). It is suggested that the duodenal environment of patients with chronic renal failure remains hostile to the growth of these organisms in spite of the presence of gastric metaplasia.. ...

For some people, treatment by a physician may be required within a short period of time. If you know your immune system has been compromised by illnesses like HIV/AIDS or cancer treatments, you should see a doctor as soon as diarrhea begins, to prevent additional issues.. If you are generally healthy, its usually OK to wait a couple of days to see if your symptoms go away, staying hydrated and following a normal course of action to handle diarrhea. However, if you start to notice signs of dehydration, including dark urine, dry skin/mouth or dizziness, severe pain in the gut or rectum or a fever of 102 Fahrenheit or more, head over to the doctor.. In the meantime, it can be useful to use antibacterial essential oils to fight Campylobacter infection.

Utah health officials have linked a Campylobacter outbreak to raw milk purchased from Ropelato Dairy in Ogden, Utah. The Utah Department of Health announce
Campylobacter jejuni is the most common cause of bacterial gastroenteritis worldwide, with contaminated chicken meat considered to represent a major source of human infection. Biosecurity measures can reduce C. jejuni shedding rates of housed chickens, but the increasing popularity of free-range and organic meat raises the question of whether the welfare benefits of extensive production are compatible with food safety. The widespread assumption that the free-range environment contaminates extensively reared chickens has not been rigorously tested. A year-long survey of 64 free-range broiler flocks reared on two sites in Oxfordshire, UK, combining high-resolution genotyping with behavioural and environmental observations revealed: (i) no evidence of colonization of succeeding flocks by the C. jejuni genotypes shed by preceding flocks, (ii) a high degree of similarity between C. jejuni genotypes from both farm sites, (iii) no association of ranging behaviour with likelihood of Campylobacter shedding, and
Factors that appeared to decrease the risk of Campylobacter infection in broilers in southern Spain were the existence of an entrance room to access the poultry house and drinking water treatment, according to a research from the University of Cordoba.
Chronic or recurrent diarrhea is common in immune-deficient persons, especially those with adult-onset or variable immunodeficiency syndrome (1-3). Chronic inflammatory lesions of the rectum, colon, or small intestine, sometimes treated with sulfasalazine or corticosteroids, have been reported in this population (1, 4-7). Campylobacter jejuni now is recognized as a common cause of diarrhea (8) and sometimes of colitis or ileitis resembling the chronic inflammatory bowel diseases (9, 10). We report the cases of two immune-deficient patients, one with chronic proctitis, who had campylobacter infections.. Patient 1: A 63-year old man had gastric achlorhydria, mild steatorrhea, and hypogammaglobulinemia (serum IgG, 119 ...

In the Netherlands in 2003, an outbreak of avian influenza in poultry resulted in extensive culling, especially of layer hens. Concurrently, human campylobacteriosis cases decreased, particularly in the culling area. These observations raise the hypothesis that Campylobacter spp. dissemination from poultry farms or slaughterhouses might contribute to human campylobacteriosis.
The infective dose for Campylobacter may be less than 500 cells. Symptoms associated with Campylobacter infections appear between 1 to 11 days (typically 2 - 5 days) after infection. Symptoms can vary widely and usually start with muscle pain, headache and fever. Most cases involve diarrhoea, and both blood and mucus may be present in stools. Nausea occurs, but vomiting is uncommon. Symptoms can last from 1 to 7 days (typically 5 days). The infection is usually self-limiting. Campylobacter enteritis is most commonly associated with children (less than 5 years) and young adults. Death rarely occurs, particularly in healthy individuals. However, mortality rates associated with C. jejuni in the US have been estimated at 1 per 1,000 cases ...

Most people who get Campylobacteriosis recover completely within 2 to 5 days, although sometimes recovery can take up to 10 days. Some people may develop arthritis following Campylobacteriosis, while others may develop a rare disease that affects the nerves of the body beginning several weeks after the diarrhoeal illness. It can also lead to long term symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.. Most cases of Campylobacteriosis are associated with handling raw poultry or eating raw or undercooked poultry meat. A very small number of Campylobacter organisms can cause illness in humans. Even one drop of juice from raw chicken meat can infect a person. One way to become infected is to cut poultry meat on a cutting board, and then use the unwashed cutting board or utensil to prepare vegetables or other raw or lightly cooked foods.. Larger outbreaks due to Campylobacter are not usually associated with raw poultry but are usually related to drinking unpasteurised milk or ...

While cases of Campylobacter infection have gone down, it remains the most common cause of food poisoning. In 2007, there were an estimated 334,000 cases in England and Wales. A recent survey of fresh chicken on retail sale showed that around 65% was contaminated with Campylobacter, making the risk of cross-contamination in storage and preparation significant.4 There are also emerging trends that show, like Listeria, an increase in Campylobacter infection in the 60+ age group. This will increase the urgency of introducing more effective interventions, as demographic shifts create a larger proportion of older people in the population. Although there is significant work taking place to understand the mechanisms of Campylobacter colonisation in chicken, the interactions are complex and an effective reduction strategy, at source, seems to be some way off. As a consequence, an even greater focus on hygiene in food handling is likely to be required if levels of illness are to be reduced. ...

Although poultry and other birds are not affected by the bacterium, other animals can be. Therefore, it is possible for a person to acquire the infection from contact with infected stool of an ill cat or dog. This is what campylobacter organisms look like through a microscope.

Campylobacter jejuni is a Gram negative bacteria and is commonly found in the feces of animals and in the gastrointestinal tract of many birds. It can be transmitted to humans as a result of consumption of contaminated drinking water or food or unpasteurized milk. Another common cause of transmission is incorrectly prepared or inadequately cooked poultry and meat products. Campylobacter jejuni is one of the leading causes of gastroenteritis and food poisoning in humans. It causes an infection called Campylobacteriosis. It is basically a food borne illness.. On consumption of contaminated food or drink, you will suffer from enteritis as the bacterium chiefly affects the gut and causes injury in the gut. It invades the epithelial cells of the jejunum, ileum and the colon. You may complain of severe abdominal pain, diarrhoea with or without blood in stools and fever. The symptoms of Campylobacter jejuni infection will last for 24 hours to about a week, in some cases the infection may last for more ...

N2 - Campylobacter jejuni is among the most prevalent causes of human bacterial gastroenteritis worldwide. Domesticated animals and, especially, chicken meat are considered to be the main sources of infections. However, the contribution of surface waters and wildlife in C. jejuni transmission to humans is not well understood. We have evaluated the source attribution potential of a six-gene multiplex PCR (mPCR) method coupled with STRUCTURE analysis on a set of 410 C. jejuni strains isolated from environment, livestock, food and humans in central Europe. Multiplex PCR fingerprints were analysed using Subclade prediction algorithm ...
Cattle play a significant role in C. jejuni epidemiology as an important host to campylobacter strains that are capable of causing disease in humans (31). Based on data sets comprised of sample collections of C. jejuni isolates from disparate animal sources, a number of MLST studies have provided a growing body of evidence for host specificity among C. jejuni genotypes, including distinct pathogenic isolates associated with cattle (5, 8, 12, 19). Here, we present findings from the first longitudinal study and the largest to date MLST survey with respect to C. jejuni populations in cattle, based on a set of epidemiologically linked isolates from dairy cattle farms within a defined geographical region over a temporally continuous period, with the primary objective of investigating the importance of cattle as a reservoir for human campylobacter infections.. Depending on a range of factors, including sampling type and size, recovery methods, herd type, season, and geography, wide discrepancies in ...

EN] Campylobacter is the most common bacterial cause of human gastrointestinal disease in most developed countries. It is generally accepted that poultry products are a significant source of foodborne Campylobacter infections in humans. Assessing the effectiveness of any potential intervention at farm level requires monitoring of the Campylobacter status of broiler flocks, using appropriate sampling methods. The aim of this study was to assess the influence of the sample type across the rearing period for the detection of Campylobacter spp. at farm level. During this study, 21 commercial broiler farms were intensively sampled. Each farm was visited and sampled at different times during the rearing period (d 1, 7, 14, 21, 28, 35, and 42). On the first day of rearing, the status of the house and the day-old flock was evaluated, and environmental and cecal samples were collected. During rearing, 4 different sample types were collected: feces with sock swabs (sock swabs), feces directly from the ...
From 1979 to 1996, 58 patients (mean age, 39.4 years) were treated for bacteremia due to Campylobacter species at the Hospitals Vall dHebron in Barcelona, Spain. Bacteremia was considered to be hospital acquired in 30% of these patients. Almost all the patients (93%) had underlying conditions; liver cirrhosis was the most frequent (34% of patients), and neoplasia, immunosuppressive therapy, and human immunodeficiency virus disease were also common. Of the 58 Campylobacter strains isolated, 81% were C. jejuni, 10% were Campylobacter species, 7% were C. fetus, and one (2%) was C. coli. Resistance rates were: cephalothin, 82%; co-trimoxazole, 79%; quinolones, 54%; ampicillin, 20%; amoxicillin/clavulanate, 4%; erythromycin, 7%; gentamicin, 0; and tetracyclines, 0. Even though the majority of patients were immunocompromised, mortality was low (10.5%), and only one patient relapsed. Because of the high level of resistance to the quinolones in Campylobacter species, these drugs should not be used as ...
To identify epidemiological features of culture-proven campylobacter infections and to determine resistance rates, we conducted a 4-year demographic survey of culture-proven campylobacteriosis in one Dutch region. Examination of 24,435 fecal specimens revealed 1,315 cases of campylobacteriosis (5.4%). The ofloxacin-resistance rate among Campylobacter isolates increased from 11% to 29%. Resistance against tetracycline fluctuated between 7% and 15%, and resistance against erythromycin remained low. Resistance against fluoroquinolones was seasonally influenced, with relatively high rates during winter. We conclude that resistance of Campylobacter isolates to fluoroquinolones is still rising, probably because of the use of fluoroquinolones (enrofloxacin) in animal husbandry.. ...

Aim: To screen 90 clinical isolates of thermophilic Campylobacter species for putative resistance to ampicillin, erythromycin and tetracycline and perform numerical analysis to determine isolate relatedness. Methods and Results: Disc diffusion, E-test MIC and agar dilution methods were performed. Disc diffusion testing showed 87 (97%) isolates appeared resistant to ampicillin at 10 姻 14 (16%) resistant to tetracycline at 30 姻 and three (3紥) resistant to erythromycin at 15 姮 E-test MICs showed a range of 0絠to ,256 mg l1 for ampicillin; 16 to ,256 mg l1 for tetracycline; and ,256 mg l1 for erythromycin. E-test showed 68% correlation (ᱠlog2 dilution) with agar dilution for ampicillin, 100% for erythromycin and 64% for tetracycline. Disc diffusion testing showed 100% correlation with agar dilution for erythromycin and tetracycline, and 77% for ampicillin. Numerical analyses of restriction endonuclease (RE) fragment profiles suggested a high level of isolate variation. Conclusion: The ...
Campylobacter (kamp-pi-lo-BAK-ter) is a type of bacteria that is a normal inhabitant of the digestive tract of many animals. People, however, do not normally carry Campylobacter, and exposure to it usually causes an intestinal infection called campylobacteriosis (kamp-pi-lo-bak-ter-ee-O-sis). The most common source of Campylobacter in the United States is chicken. When chickens (and other animals) are killed for food, the bacteria from their digestive tract can contaminate the meat. People get infected when they eat raw or uncooked meats and eggs (thorough cooking kills the bacteria), drink raw (unpasteurized) milk, or drink contaminated water. Oftentimes, juices from raw meats drip and contaminate other foods. In rare cases, contact with people or animals who are infected spreads the illness. Campylobacter is the most common bacterial cause of diarrhea in the United States, where more than 2 million cases occur each year. The illness most frequently affects infants and children younger than age ...
Campylobacter jejuni infection produces a spectrum of clinical presentations in humans - including asymptomatic carriage, watery diarrhea, and bloody diarrhea - and has been epidemiologically associated with subsequent autoimmune neuropathies. This microorganism is genetically variable and possesses genetic mechanisms that may contribute to variability in nature. However, relationships between genetic variation in the pathogen and variation in disease manifestation in the host are not understood. We took a comparative experimental approach to explore differences among different C. jejuni strains and studied the effect of diet on disease manifestation in an interleukin-10 deficient mouse model. In the comparative study, C57BL/6 interleukin-10-/- mice were infected with seven genetically distinct C. jejuni strains. Four strains colonized the mice and caused disease; one colonized with no disease; two did not colonize. A DNA:DNA microarray comparison of the strain that colonized mice without disease to C.
Aim: To analyse the trend of prevalence of infections caused by Salmonella species and Campylobacter species. According to data based on the notification of infectious diseases collected at Teaching Institute for Public Health Primorsko-goranska County for a seven-year period from 2009 to 2015 we made analysis of the prevalence of infection caused by Salmonella species comparing to infection caused by Campylobacter species in Primorsko-goranska County. Examinees and methods: The study included mandatory diseases notification for infections caused by Salmonella species and Campylobacter species for the period from 2009 to 2015 in the Primorsko-goranska County . The data used in the study were obtained by the Teaching Institute for Public Health of Primorsko-goranska County that are not available to the public. The analysis was conducted based on the study of certain variables: the prevalence, sex, age , municipality, region, means of diagnosis, month of the year and occupation. Results: The ...
Campylobacter jejuni isolates (n = 533) from domestic cases diagnosed in Finland during a 3-month peak period were studied. The highest rate was observed among those 70-74 years of age. Domestic C. jejuni isolates were especially frequent in the eastern districts. Six serotypes covered 61% of all C. jejuni isolates.
Purpose and methodology. Campylobacter jejuni is a major zoonotic pathogen that causes food-borne gastroenteritis worldwide. However, there are only a few studies available that have molecularly characterized C. jejuni strains isolated in Brazil. The aim of this study was to genotype 111 C . jejuni strains isolated from sick humans (43), monkey faeces (19), chicken faeces (14), chicken meat (33) and sewage (2) between 1996 and 2016 in Brazil using flaA-SVR (short variable region) sequencing and PFGE. Furthermore, the presence of 16 virulence genes was analysed by PCR. Results. Using PFGE and flaA-SVR sequencing, the 111 C. jejuni strains studied were grouped into three and two clusters, respectively, and some strains of different origin presented a similarity of ≥80 %. In total, 35 flaA-SVR alleles were detected. Alleles gt45, gt49 and gt57 were the most prevalent, in contrast with those frequently described in the PubMLST database. All 111 C . jejuni strains contained the genes flaA, flhA, cadF, docA
Campylobacter jejuni is the most common cause of bacterial gastroenteritis, and while typically self-limiting, C. jejuni infections are associated with post-infectious intestinal disorders, including inflammatory bowel disease and irritable bowel syndrome. This study sought to determine if C. jejuni induces virulence in commensal, non-invasive E. coli. Expression of adhesin, flagella, hemolysin, biofilm formation, and antibiotic resistance genes were increased in E. coli upon exposure to C. jejuni-conditioned media. Atomic force microscopy demonstrated E. coli was more adherent to human colonic epithelial cells when exposed to C. jejuni-conditioned media. C. jejuni and C. jejuni-conditioned media also induced E. coli flagella expression. In vitro, this altered E. coli phenotype disrupted TLR4 expression and induced IL-8 secretion. These data suggest C. jejuni and C. jejuni-conditioned media can induce virulence in non-invasive, commensal E. coli, and this contributes to host inflammation. These ...
Waterborne Campylobacter jejuni outbreaks are common in the Nordic countries, and PFGE (pulsed field gel electrophoresis) remains the genotyping method of choice in outbreak investigations. However, PFGE cannot assess the clonal relationship between isolates, leading to difficulties in molecular epidemiological investigations. Here, we explored the applicability of whole genome sequencing to outbreak investigation by re-analysing three C. jejuni strains (one isolated from water and two from patients) from an earlier resolved Finnish waterborne outbreak from the year 2000. One of the patient strains had the same PFGE profile, as well as an identical overall gene synteny and three polymorphisms in comparison with the water strain. However, the other patient isolate, which showed only minor differences in the PFGE pattern relative to the water strain, harboured several polymorphisms as well as rearrangements in the integrated element CJIE2. We reconstructed the genealogy of these strains with ClonalFrame

AU - Hardie, K.. PY - 2009. Y1 - 2009. N2 - Background - Campylobacter jejuni contains a homologue of the luxS gene shown to be responsible for the production of the signalling molecule autoinducer-2 (AI-2) in Vibrio harveyi and Vibrio cholerae. The aim of this study was to determine whether AI-2 acted as a diffusible quorum sensing signal controlling C. jejuni gene expression when it is produced at high levels during mid exponential growth phase. Results - AI-2 activity was produced by the parental strain NCTC 11168 when grown in rich Mueller-Hinton broth (MHB) as expected, but interestingly was not present in defined Modified Eagles Medium (MEM-a). Consistent with previous studies, the luxS mutant showed comparable growth rates to the parental strain and exhibited decreased motility halos in both ...
The binding of Campylobacter jejuni to fibronectin (Fn), a component of the extracellular matrix, is mediated by a 37 kDa outer-membrane protein termed CadF for Campylobacter adhesion to fibronectin. The specificity of C. jejuni binding to Fn, via CadF, was demonstrated using antibodies reactive against Fn and CadF. More specifically, the anti-CadF antibody reduced the binding of two C. jejuni clinical isolates to immobilized Fn by greater than 50 %. Furthermore, a C. jejuni wild-type isolate, in contrast to the isogenic CadF mutant, was found to compete with another C. jejuni wild-type isolate for host cell receptors. Given the relationship between the pericellular Fn matrix and the cytoskeleton, the involvement of host cell cytoskeletal components in C. jejuni internalization was also examined. Cytochalasin D and mycalolide B microfilament depolymerizing agents resulted in a significant reduction in C. jejuni invasion. Studies targeting paxillin, a focal adhesion signalling molecule, identified an
The family Campylobacteraceae includes 2 genera: Campylobacter and Arcobacter. The genus Campylobacter includes 18 species and subspecies; 11 of these are considered pathogenic to humans and cause enteric and extraintestinal illnesses.
The bipolar flagella of the foodborne bacterial pathogen Campylobacter jejuni confer motility, which is essential for virulence. The flagella of C. jejuni are post-translationally modified, but how this process is controlled is not well understood. In this work, we have identified a novel PAS-domain containing regulatory system, which modulates flagella-flagella interactions in C. jejuni. Inactivation of the cj1387c gene, encoding a YheO-like PAS6 domain linked to a helix-turn-helix domain, resulted in the generation of a tightly associated

Campylobacter jejuni is a major cause of bacterial gastroenteritis worldwide, primarily associated with the consumption of contaminated poultry. C. jejuni lineages vary in host range and prevalence in human infection, suggesting differences in survival throughout the poultry processing chain. From 7,343 MLST-characterised isolates, we sequenced 600 C. jejuni and C. coli isolates from various stages of poultry processing and clinical cases. A genome-wide association study (GWAS) in C. jejuni ST-21 and ST-45 complexes identified genetic elements over-represented in clinical isolates that increased in frequency throughout the poultry processing chain. Disease-associated SNPs were distinct in these complexes, sometimes organised in haplotype blocks. The function of genes containing associated elements was investigated, demonstrating roles for cj1377c in formate metabolism, nuoK in aerobic survival and oxidative respiration, and cj1368-70 in nucleotide salvage. This work demonstrates the utility of GWAS for
Campylobacter jejuni is a gram negative bacterium most commonly associated with the consumption of undercooked poultry meat and is a common bacterium found in the intestinal tracts of dogs, cats, poultry, swine, cattle, monkeys, wild birds and some humans.
Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS) is currently considered to be a true case of molecular mimicry mediated disease, at least in those patients with a preceding Campylobacter jejuni infection. There is convincing evidence from extensive histology, serology, and animal model studies that GBS is caused by an autoimmune response. This parallels the failure of natural immune tolerance in other disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, and multiple sclerosis, which are generally classified as autoimmune diseases. GBS is therefore frequently classified as a typical postinfectious disease. Studies based on stool culture alone will therefore underestimate the frequency of C. jejuni infections in GBS. The current trend toward direct DNA sequence-based typing has also penetrated the Campylobacter research field. There appears to be an association between the specific clinical symptoms, GBS variants, and particular characteristics of C. jejuni strains that primarily resides in the
To study whether broiler and layer farms contribute to the environmental Campylobacter load, environmental matrices at or close to farms, and caecal material from chickens, were examined. Similarity between Campylobacter from poultry and environment was tested based on species identification and Multilocus Sequence Typing. Campylobacter prevalence in caecal samples was 97% at layer farms (n = 5), and 93% at broiler farms with Campylobacter-positive flocks (n = 2/3). Campylobacter prevalence in environmental samples was 24% at layer farms, and 29% at broiler farms with Campylobacter-positive flocks. Campylobacter was detected in soil and surface water, not in dust and flies. Campylobacter prevalence in adjacent and remote surface waters was not significantly (P , 0.1) different. Detected species were C. coli (52%), C. jejuni (40%) and C. lari (7%) in layers, and C. jejuni (100%) in broilers. Identical sequence types (STs) were detected in caecal material and soil. A deviating species distribution ...
Our study revealed a high diversity of MLSTs among 102 bovine C. jejuni isolates obtained from three major Finnish slaughterhouses, representing 81 farms, in 2003. A total of 50 STs (nine CCs) were observed, nearly half of which were novel, emerging mostly from new combinations of known alleles and in two cases from new alleles carrying a one-nucleotide difference from alleles commonly found in cattle (pgm allele 2, tkt allele 1 and uncA allele 17). The emergence of a high number of novel STs could be explained by the life cycle of dairy cattle, providing a C. jejuni strain with the opportunity for long-lasting colonization and adaptation in the bovine host. However, re-infection with a different strain or multiple strains, and thus the occurrence of recombination events, cannot be excluded. The distribution of C. jejuni genotypes has previously been shown not to be random among farms, with farms no more than 1 km apart appearing to possess similar C. jejuni genotypes [12, 26], supporting the ...
An example of the difficulty and complexity associated with pseudogene designation is observed when viewing the CDSs Cj0522, Cj0523 and Cj0524 within C. jejuni NCTC11168. These three CDSs are represented as one whole CDS on a single frame within C. jejuni RM1221 (Cje0628). The three CDSs are large enough to be represented as individual CDSs and in C. jejuni NCTC11168 have been represented on more than one frame. The question can be asked as to whether these CDSs (which are intact in C. jejuni RM1221), represent a pseudogene in C. jejuni NCTC11168. Given the fact that in C. jejuni RM1221 these three CDSs do actually code for a product (Na/Pi-cotransporter, putative), it is more likely that they represent a pseudogene in C. jejuni NCTC11168. In this re-annotation, our intention was to carry out a full mark up of existing pseudogenes, however, the potential for a pseudogene has been noted.. The frequency and importance of pseudogene formation in microorganisms has attained added significance in ...
Campylobacter jejuni is a leading cause of bacterial gastroenteritis in the developed world. The role of a homologue of the negative transcriptional regulatory protein HspR, which in other organisms participates in the control of the heat-shock response, was investigated. Following inactivation of hspR in C. jejuni, members of the HspR regulon were identified by DNA microarray transcript profiling. In agreement with the predicted role of HspR as a negative regulator of genes involved in the heat-shock response, it was observed that the transcript amounts of 13 genes were increased in the hspR mutant, including the chaperone genes dnaK, grpE and clpB, and a gene encoding the heat-shock regulator HrcA. Proteomic analysis also revealed increased synthesis of the heat-shock proteins DnaK, GrpE, GroEL and GroES in the absence of HspR. The altered expression of chaperones was accompanied by heat sensitivity, as the hspR mutant was unable to form colonies at 44 °C. Surprisingly, transcriptome analysis also
Campylobacter jejuni, a gram-negative bacterium, is a frequent cause of gastrointestinal food-borne illness in humans throughout the world. There are several reports that the virulence of C. jejuni might be modulated by non-flagellar proteins that are secreted through the filament. Recently, FspA (Flagella secreted proteins) have been described. Two alleles of fspA (fspA1 and fspA2) based on sequence analysis were previously reported and only the fspA2 allele was found in Thai isolates. The aim of this study is to analyze the deduced amino acid sequences fspA and the adjacent putative integral membrane protein from 103 Thai C. jejuni isolates. A total of 103 representative C. jejuni isolates were amplified by PCR for the fspA gene and the adjacent integral membrane protein gene. Two PCR product sizes were amplified using the same primers, an approximately 1600-bp PCR product from 19 strains that contained fspA and integral membrane protein genes and an approximately 800-bp PCR product from 84 strains
Campylobacter jejuni is a major bacterial cause of food-borne enteritis, and its lipooligosaccharide (LOS) plays an initiating role in the development of the autoimmune neuropathy, Guillain-Barré syndrome, by induction of anti-neural cross-reactive antibodies through ganglioside molecular mimicry. Herein we describe the existence and heterogeneity of multiple LOS forms in C. jejuni strains of human and chicken origin grown at 37°C and 42°C. The C. jejuni NCTC 11168 original isolate (11168-O) was compared to the genome-sequenced variant (11168-GS), and both were found to have a lower-Mr LOS form, which was different in size and structure to the previously characterized higher-Mr form bearing GM1 mimicry. The lower-Mr form production was found to be dependent on the growth temperature as the production of this form increased from ~5 %, observed at 37°C to ~35 % at 42°C. The structure of the lower-Mr form contained a Galβ1,3GalNAc disaccharide moiety which is consistent with the termini of ...

Campylobacter in broiler chickens by Eva Berndtson; 1 edition; First published in 1996; Subjects: Poultry, Food adulteration and inspection, Food contamination, Diseases, Campylobacter infections in poultry
Routine detection of Campylobacter typically involves a 48 hour cultivation by selective enrichment under specific growth conditions, followed by detection using selective agar plating (requiring a further 48 hours of incubation followed by confirmation testing). At present, there are no rapid and sensitive in situ Campylobacter tests available. The use of a lateral flow device (LFD) can significantly reduce the result time but LFDs do not have sufficient sensitivity to be used for environmental detection without preliminary (48 hour) enrichment. This is therefore not suitable as a rapid in situ test. Campylobacter can also be detected using PCR-based methods but requires that the sample undergoes extensive preparation to extract the DNA and remove the environmental contaminants that interfere with the PCR reactions. Further, should the amplicon (part of the DNA that is detected and is amplified as part of the process) escape into the environment, the area becomes contaminated, giving false ...
Campylobacter is one of the common causes of foodborne bacterial infection in the developed world. In the US the incidence of foodborne Campylobacter infection are estimated to be more than 2 million, resulting in more than 10,000 hospitalization and treatment cost exceeding 1.7 million (Mead et al., 1999). Many of these cases are believed to be due to unsafe food handling. This study encompasses three major aspects; preharvest, processing and postharvest and investigates possible sources of contamination from farm-to-table. ...

Rate per 100,000 population based on the U.S. Census Bureaus population data as of July 1, 2002. Campylobacteriosis is a bacterial diarrheal disease usually transmitted through raw or undercooked foods of animal origin or foods cross-contaminated by animal food products or feces. It can also be transmitted by untreated or contaminated water or through person-to-person transmission via the fecal-oral route. In Indiana, the following risk factors are the most common: contact with pets (most commonly dogs and cats), chicken consumption within five days prior to illness, contact with someone with similar symptoms, travel outside of Indiana, contact with untreated water, and contact with livestock. In 2002, there were 511 cases of campylobacteriosis reported in Indiana, indicating a rate of 8.3 cases per 100,000 population (Table 1). This mirrors the rate seen for 2001. Figure 1 shows reported cases by year for 1998-2002. Incidence of disease was greatest during the summer months. Figure 2 shows ...

In the study, Wigley and his colleagues experimentally infected birds from four commercial breeds of broiler chickens. They found that while levels of the bacteria in the intestines did not differ by breed, immune response and inflammation did, to the extent that one breed showed damage to the gut mucosa and developed diarrhea.. "Interestingly the breeds did not differ in the levels of bacteria we found in their intestines after infection, even when kept to normal slaughter age," says Wigley. "This suggests that chicken breed has little direct effect on the risk of Campylobacter entering the food chain but has a big effect on the health of the birds.". The most important finding, says Wigley, is that Campylobacter infection directly impacts broiler chicken health and welfare. The United States produces over 8 billion broiler chickens per year and the United Kingdom produces nearly a billion. As Campylobacter is common, or even endemic, in these industries then the scale of the impact on animal ...
Several species of Campylobacter bacteria cause gastrointestinal disease in humans. Most cases of campylobacteriosis are associated with consumption of undercooked meat (especially poultry) or ready-to-eat foods that have been contaminated with juices from raw meat.
This study has shown that C. jejuni NCTC 11168-O and 11168-GS, as well as most randomly chosen chicken and human strains produce at least two distinct LOS forms when incubated at the core temperatures of human (37°C) and avian (42°C) hosts. This is consistent with previous observations that C. jejuni is capable of producing a variety of polysaccharide-related structures that are influenced by growth conditions, such as temperature [26].. Surface antigen modulation and generation of host-adapted variants are common attributes of many bacteria and enhance the pathogenicity and survivability of the microorganism, as well as the ability to evade the host immune response during the infection [27]. This variation may be achieved through several mechanisms, such as differential gene expression or enzymatic activity and specificity modulation, which can be triggered by a random and/or environmental stimuli [28]. It is possible to speculate that in the case of C. jejuni LOS, glycosyl transferases have ...
Campylobacteriosis is an infection by the campylobacter bacterium, most commonly c. It is among the most common bacterial infections of humans, often a foodborne illness.
Eleven consecutive patients with diarrhoea from whose stools campylobacter were isolated were investigated by sigmoidoscopy and rectal biopsy. Eight had definite proctitis, and in seven biopsy specimens were abnormal with histological changes ranging from non-specific colitis to gross colitis with goblet-cell depletion and crypt-abscess formation. Nine of the patients passed blood in their stools, and in all but one abdominal pain was a feature of the illness. Severe campylobacter colitis may be clinically, sigmoidoscopically, and histologically difficult to differentiate from ulcerative colitis and is a differential diagnosis in acute colitis. ...
Campylobacter species are the commonest cause of food poisoning in man, affecting over 50,000 people in the UK and 69/100,000 population in Denmark each year, but Danish researchers have shown that potentially, only a small fraction of pig isolates are associated with man and these strains are also found in poultry, which appears to be a major source.
Campylobacteriosis is an intestinal illness caused by bacteria, and is a common cause of diarrhea worldwide. The infection is spread by the fecal-oral route, either directly by person-to-person contact or indirectly by eating or drinking fecally contaminated food or water. Person-to-person transmission is most common among children and in circumstances where hygiene practices are poor.
Campylobacter is considered to be one of the major pathogens responsible for food poisoning that occurs particularly after consuming the incorrectly stored or improperly thermally treated poultry meat. Thus, research studies are intensified that are targeted at searching for disinfection techniques, which are environmentally safe and effectively eliminate that pathogen. The Department of Food Quality at the Institute of Agricultural and Food Biotechnology in Łódź undertook research the objective of which was to determine the effectiveness of environmentally friendly disinfection with the use of ozone and ultraviolet irradiation to inactivate Campylobacter sp. inoculated on agar plates, and, then, in poultry meat. It was proved that the two disinfecting agents caused the counts of Campylobacter spp. to decrease. When applying the method with agar plates, the reduction degree of bacteria was above 2 log cfu /ml regardless of the strain and sanitising agent. After 30 minutes of sterilizing the ...
Respirationssystemet eller andningssystemet är det organsystem hos organismer som för syre till lungorna och som i gengäld producerar koldioxid och en liten . Respirationssystemet består utav luftvägarna, lungorna samt de muskler som gör det möjligt för luften att åka in och ut i kroppen. Luftvägarna transporterar gaser till och från lungorna.

The European Food Safety Authority and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control have just published their Community Zoonoses Report for 2007, analysing the occurrence of infectious diseases transmittable from animals to humans. Campylobacter infections still topped the list of zoonotic diseases in the European Union and the number of Salmonella infections in humans decreased for the fourth year in a row. Cases of listeriosis remained at the same level as in 2006, but due to the severity of the disease, more studies on transmission routes are warranted. The report highlights the importance of continued co-operation between veterinarians and public health specialists, both at the EU level and within Member States.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Monday it is investigating a multistate outbreak of campylobacter infections linked to contact with puppies sold through Petland, a national pet store chain.

Campylobacter species are one of the leading causes of foodborne disease in the United States. Campylobacter jejuni and Campylobacter coli are the two main species of concern to human health and cause approximately 95% of human infections. Molecular typing methods, such as pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) and multilocus sequence typing (MLST) are often used to source track foodborne bacterial pathogens. The aim of the present study was to compare PFGE and MLST in typing strains of C. jejuni and C. coli that were isolated from different Oklahoma retail meat sources. A total of 47 Campylobacter isolates (28 C. jejuni and 19 C. coli) isolated from various retail meat samples (beef, beef livers, pork, chicken, turkey, chicken livers, and chicken gizzards) were subjected to pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) and multilocus sequence typing (MLST). PFGE was able to group the 47 Campylobacter isolates into two major clusters (one for C. jejuni and one for C. coli) but failed to differentiate the

Studies that investigate arsenic resistance in the foodborne bacterium Campylobacter are limited. A total of 552 Campylobacter isolates (281 Campylobacter jejuni and 271 Campylobacter coli) isolated from retail meat samples were subjected to arsenic resistance profiling using the following arsenic compounds: arsanilic acid (4-2,048 μg/mL), roxarsone (4-2048 μg/mL), arsenate (16-8,192 μg/mL) and arsenite (4-2,048 μg/mL). A total of 223 of these isolates (114 Campylobacter jejuni and 109 Campylobacter coli) were further analyzed for the presence of five arsenic resistance genes (arsP, arsR, arsC, acr3, and arsB) by PCR. Most of the 552 Campylobacter isolates were able to survive at higher concentrations of arsanilic acid (512-2,048 μg/mL), roxarsone (512-2,048 μg/mL), and arsenate (128-1,024 μg/mL), but at lower concentrations for arsenite (4-16 μg/mL). Ninety seven percent of the isolates tested by PCR showed the presence of arsP and arsR genes. While 95% of the Campylobacter coli isolates
The Gram-negative bacterium Campylobacter jejuni is able to enter, survive and multiply within the free living amoeba Acanthamoeba polyphaga, but the molecular mechanisms behind these events are still unclear. We have studied the uptake and intracellular trafficking of viable and heat killed bacterial cells of the C. jejuni strain 81-176 in A. polyphaga. We found that viable bacteria associated with a substantially higher proportion of Acanthamoeba trophozoites than heat killed bacteria. Furthermore, the kinetics of internalization, the total number of internalized bacteria as well as the intracellular localization of internalized C. jejuni were dramatically influenced by bacterial viability. Viable bacteria were internalized at a high rate already after 1 h of co-incubation and were observed in small vacuoles tightly surrounding the bacteria. In contrast, internalization of heat killed C. jejuni was low at early time points and did not peak until 96 h. These cells were gathered in large ...
