The understanding of clinical aspects, epidemiology, pathogenesis, genomic diversity, and glycobiology of Campylobacter infection has greatly increased. With the publication of this landmark third edition of Campylobacter, all the new findings, knowledge, and research are brought together in one comprehensive, up-to-date volume. As the number of species within the family has expanded, so has our knowledge of this group of organisms in terms of their physiology, population biology, and diversity. Additionally, new 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 are included.


Organized into six sections with thirty-eight chapters, this volume begins with chapters detailing the campylobacter organism. The next two sections thoroughly describe the clinical and epidemiologic aspects of campylobacter infections, pathogenesis, and immunity. The next section details the emerging field of campylobacter glycobiology, which has provided a structural basis for understanding important polysaccharides and glycolipids from the organism and offers great insight into glycosylation systems, which are present in other prokaryotes and eukaryotes. The volume then covers ground-breaking work on the molecular analyses of C. jejuni and other Campylobacter species. Finally, the volume addresses the growing body of work on improved food safety and intervention.
