FRONT. CELL. INFECT. MICROBIOL. 08/01/21 Investigating Major Recurring Campylobacter jejuni Lineages in Luxembourg Using Four Core or Whole Genome Sequencing Typing Schemes. Introduction Campylobacter spp. is the leading cause of bacterial foodborne diarrheal disease worldwide (WHO, 2013) and the main zoonotic agent in the European Union (EU) (EFSA and ECDC, 2019).
In 2018, the reported EU-wide incidence of campylobacteriosis was 64.1 cases per 100,000 population and Luxembourg had one of the highest rates in Europe (103.8) (EFSA and ECDC, 2019). Campylobacter is responsible for a large health and economic burden world-wide with a cost-of-illness of $1.56 billion in the USA (Scharff, 2012; Devleesschauwer et al., 2017) and 8.28 disability adjusted life years (DALYs) per 100,000 population in Europe (Cassini et al., 2018). More than 80% of cases of campylobacteriosis are caused by Campylobacter jejuni and poultry is considered the main reservoir of human infections (Mughini-Gras et al., 2012; Ragimbeau et al., 2014; Mossong et al., 2016; EFSA and ECDC, 2019).

Abstract Very few reports describe all hospitalized patients with campylobacteriosis in the setting of a single waterborne outbreak. This study describes the demographics, comorbidities, clinical features, microbiology, treatment and complications of 67 hospitalized children and adults during a large waterborne outbreak of Campylobacter jejuni in Askoy, Norway in 2019, where more than 2000 people in a community became ill. We investigated factors that contributed to hospitalization and treatment choices.
Data were collected from electronic patient records during and after the outbreak. Citation: Mortensen N, Jonasson SA, Lavesson IV, Emberland KE, Litleskare S, Wensaas K-A, et al.

EUROSURVEILLANCE 14/08/14 Au sommaire: Potential association between the recent increase in campylobacteriosis incidence in the Netherlands and proton-pump inhibitor use – an ecological study. The Netherlands saw an unexplained increase in campylobacteriosis incidence between 2003 and 2011, following a period of continuous decrease. We conducted an ecological study and found a statistical association between campylobacteriosis incidence and the annual number of prescriptions for proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), controlling for the patient’s age, fresh and frozen chicken purchases (with or without correction for campylobacter prevalence in fresh poultry meat).
The effect of PPIs was larger in the young than in the elderly. However, the counterfactual population-attributable fraction for PPIs was largest for the elderly (ca 45% in 2011) and increased at population level from 8% in 2004 to 27% in 2011. Using the regression model and updated covariate values, we predicted a trend break for 2012, largely due to a decreased number of PPI prescriptions, that was subsequently confirmed by surveillance data.

CONFEDERATION SUISSE 03/07/14 La bactérie Campylobacter, principale cause des infections alimentaires – une nouvelle étude explique pourquoi. Un nouveau travail de recherche du Swiss TPH le prouve : la principale source de contamination est la viande crue, en particulier la viande de volaille, contaminée par la bactérie. Réalisée sur mandat de l'Office fédéral de la santé publique (OFSP) et en accord avec l'Office fédéral de la sécurité alimentaire et des affaires vétérinaires (OSAV), l'étude en question examine les cas annoncés entre décembre 2012 et février 2013.
Elle montre que la consommation de fondue à la viande (fondue chinoise, par ex.) augmente le risque de propagation de la bactérie, et notamment si l'on utilise de la viande de volaille fraîche. De plus, l'étude indique que la moitié des patients sont restés malades au moins une semaine. Environ 15 % des personnes atteintes ont dû être soignées à l'hôpital en soins stationnaires. Des symptômes marquésLa bactérie Campylobacter colonise l'intestin des volailles et d'autres animaux de rente, lesquels toutefois ne souffrent généralement pas de l'infection.
Auteur: Enferm Infecc Microbiol Clin. 2012;30:243-5. A Campylobacter outbreak in a Barcelona school. Introduction Campylobacteriosis is the most frequently reported zoonotic disease in humans in the European Union (EU), with 200,507 reported confirmed cases, and an incidence of 45.2/100,000 in 2007.1 However, Campylobacter outbreaks are rare. Human infection is commonly associated with symptoms including watery and bloody diarrhoea, abdominal pain, fever, headache and nausea, and the infection is usually self-limiting in a few days.2 On 27 September 2010, the director of a Barcelona primary school alerted the Public Health Agency of Barcelona (PHAB) of an unusual rate of 68 absences among 435 scholars, and initial enquiries revealed that children had a diarrhoeal illness.
The objective of this present study is to describe the epidemiological, environmental and microbiological investigation of this outbreak and its main results. Methods Of the 75 children who fulfilled the case definition, stool samples were provided by 45 cases. Fig. 1. Results Table 1. Discussion Conflict of interest.

EFSA 14/12/06 Campylobacteriosis overtakes salmonellosis as the most reported animal infection transmitted to humans in the EU. Press Release 14 December 2006 The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has today published its second annual Community report on infectious diseases transmissible from animals to humans (zoonotic diseases) which affect over 380,000 European Union (EU) citizens every year. In 2005, campylobacteriosis overtook salmonellosis as the most reported zoonotic disease in humans in the EU. The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) provided the data on human zoonoses cases and contributed in the analysis of human related data in the report. The second annual Community report (2005) on infectious diseases transmissible from animals to humans (zoonotic diseases) published today has highlighted campylobacteriosis as the most reported animal infection transmitted to humans in the EU.
The report also provides data on important resistance rates to antibiotics in Campylobacter originating from farm animals and food of animal origin.

It gives an overview of the public health significance and burden of campylobacteriosis, concluding that there is considerable underascertainment and underreporting of clinical campylobacteriosis in the EU.

Zoonoses are infections and diseases that are naturally transmissible directly or indirectly, for example via contaminated foodstuffs, between animals and humans. The severity of these diseases in humans varies from mild symptoms to life-threatening conditions. In order to prevent zoonoses from occurring, it is important to identify which animals and foodstuffs are the main sources of infections.
