Campylobacter - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Kuopiossa 20.9.2007 Ari Jääskeläinen Savonia-ammattikorkeakoulu study discusses the risk management of drinking and household water.

Campylobacter - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "The genus Campylobacter are Gram-negative, spiral, microaerophilic bacteria. Motile, with either uni- or bi-polar flagella, the organisms have a somewhat curved, rod-like appearance, and are oxidase-positive.

Campylobacter jejuni is now recognised as one of the main causes of bacterial food borne disease in many developed countries. At least a dozen species of Campylobacter have been implicated in human disease, with C. jejuni and C. coli the most common.

C. fetus is a cause of spontaneous abortions in cattle and sheep, as well as an opportunisitic pathogen in humans. The genomes of several Campylobacter species have been sequenced, providing insights into their mechanisms of pathogenesis."
