Low-Level Fluoroquinolone Resistanceamong Campylobacter jejuni Isolates in Australia
Background. Ciprofloxacin-resistant Campylobacter jejuni isolates obtained from infected patients in Australia have not been detected in studies of isolates from specific geographic areas. The Australian government has prohibited the use of fluoroquinolone in food-producing animals. To assess the impact of this policy, we have examined the antimicrobial susceptibility of isolates from 5 Australian states. Methods. We conducted a period-prevalence survey of the susceptibility of C. jejuni...[Show more]
