Lindmark, H; Boqvist, Sofia; Ljungström, Marianne; Ågren, Paula; Björkholm, Britta; Engstrand, L


Isolates from Campylobacter jejuni-infected patients were collected and fresh poultry meat from retail sources was sampled during the same time period and within the same geographical area. The patients were interviewed about exposure to known risk factors, and a significant correlation between the presence of a poultry subtype in patients and the consumption of fresh poultry meat was observed.
