CAMPYLOBACTER DIAGNOSTICS

Campylobacter species are the most common cause of bacterial gastroenteritis

Campylobacter jejuni and Campylobacter coli

Worldwide, Campylobacter species are the most common cause of bacterial gastroenteritis, causing 400-500 million cases of diarrhea each year.

Infants in developing countries are at great risk, as are travelers to those countries. Campylobacter–associated gastroenteritis is estimated to affect nearly 1 million people a year in the U.S.

In approximately 1 of 1,000 cases, Campylobacter species are closely linked to the subsequent development of Guillian-Barre Syndrome, an acute auto-immune paralysis. C. jejuni infection has also been associated with reactive arthritis in both children and adults.
