Abstract

Campylobacter is the most frequently encountered cause of bacterial gastroenteritis in developed countries. Many subtyping schemes have been devised based on conventional phenotypic markers such as heat labile and heat stable surface antigens, biochemical and resistance markers and more recently molecular methods have been devised involving restriction digest analysis, gene probing and amplification of polymorphic gene regions by PCR.
