This edited volume examines Campylobacter species, which are some of the most important foodborne pathogens. Especially, contaminated poultry meat can cause human gastroenteritis in both developing and developed countries. Fighting Campylobacter Infections, (PDF) discloses how these infections can also increase the risk of generalized paralytic diseases like Miller-Fisher syndrome, Guillain-Barré syndrome, and Chinese paralytic syndrome. Because of their influence on the nervous system, circulatory system, and several organs, Campylobacter infections represent a serious public health concern.
Campylobacter can be efficiently combated by addressing the hygienic conditions in both food production and human lifestyles. Therefore, the authors put forward a One Health perspective, which offers readers essential insights into the basic biology of Campylobacter, in addition to practical guidance on aspects ranging from food production to the clinical treatment of infections.
