Description:
There has been increasing concern internationally at the level of illness caused by Campylobacter spp. Commonly, Campylobacter jejuni (Cjejuni) and Campylobacter coli (C.coli) infection is a zoonosis and manifests as a severe enteritis. Data from regional surveillance systemsl in Ireland have suggested a rise in the incidence of disease caused by Cjejunilcoli. This prompted this national review to ascertain information on the epidemiology of laboratory-confirmed campylobacter enteritis in Ireland. This review provides important information to supplement further investigations in this field by the National Disease Surveillance Centre (NDSC), Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) and other partners in infectious disease surveillance and control. A summary of this analysis was first presented in Trinity College, Dublin in June 2000. NDSC will prepare a summary for publication in EPI-INSIGHT also, later this year. The following data has been summarised to illustrate the burden of infection in Ireland. It also provides a regional breakdown by each health board. No individual hospital data is identified.
