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.


The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Rebecca T. Horvat, PhD, D (ABMM)(University of Kansas Medical Center)
Description: The curved Gram negative bacilli that make up the Campylobacter species were first noted in the late 1800s, but it has been only in the last 20 years that a clear understanding of the pathogenesis of this species has been recognized. This is the third edition of this book devoted to the recent information known about the Camplyobacter species and closely related Helicobacter and Arcobacter species. The previous edition was published eight years ago and there is a clear need to update the book with developments during that time regarding this group of organisms.
Purpose: The new edition includes the recent research on the pathogenesis, immune responses to Campylobacter infection, genetic organization of the bacteria, and the development of antibiotic resistance. All of these discoveries have come within the last few years as research techniques and methods have improved. This book provides some clearly needed answers to some of the puzzles associated with these bacteria.
Audience: This book is written for scientists studying Campylobacter and the clinicians and public health professionals treating and monitoring infections with this agent. The authors are all well recognized experts in the field and provide some exciting new information that can be used to prevent and treat infections due to Campylobacter.
Features: In 1991, the genera Campylobacter and Arcobacter were placed in a new bacterial family called the Campylobaceraceae. During the next 17 years, numerous other bacteria were reclassified and placed into this family. This was possible due to the study of the genetic arrangement and the physical properties of these bacteria. Also during this time, it became clear that Campylobacter was the causative agent of diarrheal diseases in humans and is associated with acute inflammatory enteritis. These findings allowed public health professionals to determine that the Campylobacter species was the most frequently identified cause of bacterial diarrhea in humans. It was also recognized that a very serious and debilitating disease, Guillain-Barre syndrome, that causes acute neuromuscular paralysis, was highly associated with prior Campylobacter infections. These findings built on each other and it is expected this type of discovery will continue as scientists, clinicians, and public health professionals work together to detect these pathogens. This book will serve as a vital source of information to assist in this effort.
Assessment: This book will become my primary reference for information regarding Campylobacter infections. I had difficulty deciding which topics I found more interesting. In the end, I realized that the whole book tied into the discovery of how pathogens are identified and the collaboration needed to complete the entire picture.

This book is a result of the 1992 report from the California Conference on Campylobacter. It is a state of the art compendium of the known and unknown in the study of Campylobacter. The editors' objective is to provide a definitive compendium to summarize our current understanding of Campylobacter and related species. This is essential due to the many recent significant advancements in the field. This book is intended as an aid to clinicians, scientists, colleagues, ecologists, public health workers, and government regulators as they seek solutions to their problems. The entire field of Campylobacteriology is covered in this text. The editors begin by introducing readers to the taxonomy and developments in Campylobacter identification. They cover the clinical and epidemiological aspects of Campylobacter infections and then focus on pathogenic mechanisms. In a final section they deal with Campylobacter and its relation to food safety. This is an excellent state-of-the-art text in the field of Campylobacter and related organisms. It is an update of the 1992 text. There is currently no other comprehensive text in this field. The editors present what is currently known as well as our gaps in knowledge. This book would be an excellent reference text for clinical microbiologists, infectious disease physicians, and researchers in the Campylobacter field.

This successor to the 1992 volume covers what is known, and what remains to be discovered, about the most common food-borne bacterial infections in the U.S. Twenty-eight contributions review the microbiology of infections, clinical and epidemiological aspects, pathogenesis, molecular genetics, and food safety. Information on related species is also included. Nachamkin (pathology and laboratory medicine, University of Pennsylvania) and Blaser (infectious diseases, Vanderbilt University School of Medicine) have collected contributions from experts in veterinary science, poultry processing, meat quality research, enteric and sexually transmitted diseases, bioengineering, and environmental health, as well as genetics, microbiology, and epidemiology.
