Campylobacter jejuni isolations from Mexican and Swedish patients, with repeated symptomatic and/or asymptomatic diarrhoea episodes

  • E. Sjögren (a1), G. Ruiz-Palacios (a2) and B. Kaijser (a1)

Summary

The presence of different Campylobacter jejuni serotypes in Swedish patients with diarrhoea and in Mexican patients with or without diarrhoea was investigated with special reference to repeated isolations during the course of infection and to symptomatic and asymptomatic episodes. The study included 136 C. jejuni isolates from 62 Mexican children and 173 isolates from 68 Swedish patients. The bacteria were serotyped for heat-stable (HS) and heat-labile (HL) antigen.
