The state of our knowledge of Campylobacter infection in one comprehensive volume. Presents findings on the extent of campylobacter in the food supply, transmission of antibiotic resistant campylobacters from food animals to humans, and control of campylobacter at the food source. Includes six sections of chapters that detail the campylobacter organism; the clinical and epidemiologic aspects of campylobacter infections, pathogenesis, and immunity; the emerging field of campylobacter glycobiology, which has provided a structural basis for understanding important polysaccharides and glycolipids from the organism. Offers insight into glycosylation systems, which are present in other prokaryotes and eukaryotes. Covers groundbreaking work on the molecular analyses of C. jejuni and other Campylobacter species.
