Project: Contribution of Protozoa in the transmission of Campylobacter in poultry
- project duration
- 01-JAN-06 – 31-DEC-07
- Recent publications report the capacity of foodborn pathogens to survive and to multiply within Protozoa. Actually, little or none information is available about the occurrence of internalised Campylobacter in Protozoa on poultry farms. The aim of the project is to investigate the role of Protozoa as vector, ghost and evolutionary crib for Campylobacter in poultry.
