Overview

The state of our knowledge of Campylobacter infection in one comprehensive volume.

  • Presents findings on the extent of campylobacter in the food supply, transmission of antibiotic resistant campylobacters from food animals to humans, and control of campylobacter at the food source.
  • Includes six sections of chapters that detail the campylobacter organism; the clinical and epidemiologic aspects of campylobacter infections, pathogenesis, and immunity; the emerging field of campylobacter glycobiology, which has provided a structural basis for understanding important polysaccharides and glycolipids from the organism.
  • Offers insight into glycosylation systems, which are present in other prokaryotes and eukaryotes.
  • Covers groundbreaking work on the molecular analyses of C. jejuni and other Campylobacter species.
