The Prevalence of Campylobacter in Pigs during Fattening
The aim of this study was to improve our knowledge of the epidemiology of campylobacters in pigs. This can help in understanding whether it is possible to reduce the prevalence of campylobacters in the pig population and, ultimately, to produce campylobacter-free pork. For this purpose the prevalence of campylobacters in porkers in 8 farms was monitored. A selection of campylobacter isolates was characterised by a genetic typing method known as RFLP (Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism).
