Rapid development of resistance to quinolones as well as other antimicrobials in Campylobacter spp. has been reported from different countries. In Sweden, increasing resistance to quinolones has been reported in human isolates. The aim of this investigation was to study the resistance to cephalothin, enro-floxacin, ampicillin, erythromycin, and doxycycline in strains of Campylobacter jejuni isolated from chickens.
