Penulis: Wael Abdelrahman
In the last 20 years, Campylobacter has emerged as the most commonly reported cause of bacterial gastroenteritis in humans worldwide.
Affected humans show clinical signs of acute diarrhea or more severe complications including Guillain-Barré syndrome and arthritis. The cost of campylobacteriosis to public health and to lost productivity in the EU is estimated by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) to be around EUR2.4 billion a year.
