Genotypes and antibiotic resistances of Campylobacter jejuni and Campylobacter coli from domestic and travel-associated human cases


Niederer, L; Kuhnert, P; Egger, T; Büttner, S; Hächler, H; Korczak, B (2012). Genotypes and antibiotic resistances of Campylobacter jejuni and Campylobacter coli from domestic and travel-associated human cases. Applied and Environmental Microbiology, 78(1):288-291.

Abstract

Multilocus sequence typing (MLST) extended with flaB typing of 425 Campylobacter jejuni isolates and 42 Campylobacter coli isolates revealed quite a low overlap between human isolates from travel-associated and domestic cases in Switzerland. Men were more frequently affected by Campylobacter than women, but strains from women and, overall, from travel-associated cases showed mutations conferring quinolone resistance more frequently than strains from men and domestic cases, respectively.
