Rise in listeriosis infections in humans, campylobacteriosis cases stabilising, decrease in salmonellosis cases: new ECDC/EFSA joint report
The EFSA-ECDC report, ‘European Union Summary Report on Trends and Sources of Zoonoses, Zoonotic Agents and Food-borne Outbreaks in 2013’, released today covers 16 zoonoses and foodborne outbreaks.
Salmonella and Campylobacter show significant levels of resistance to common antimicrobials in humans and animals
Treatment options for some of the most common food-borne infections are decreasing, as types of bacteria (called ‘isolates’) continue to show resistance to antimicrobial drugs.
Campylobacter decreases slightly, Salmonella down, Listeria up – EFSA and ECDC say
Human cases of campylobacteriosis decreased slightly in 2012 for the first time in five years, but campylobacteriosis remains the most commonly reported zoonotic disease and it is premature to suggest that this is the beginning of a downward trend.
Joint EFSA and ECDC report: resistant bacteria remain an important issue that can affect humans through animals and food.
The third joint EFSA and ECDC report on antimicrobial resistance in zoonotic bacteria affecting humans, animals and foods shows the continued presence of resistance to a range of antimicrobials in Salmonella and Campylobacter, the main bacteria causing food-borne infections in the European Union (EU).
EFSA and ECDC zoonoses report: Salmonella in humans continues to decrease, Campylobacter increasingArchived
The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) have published their annual report on zoonoses and food-borne outbreaks in the European Union for 2010.
Seroincidence calculator tool
The seroincidence calculator utilises the combination of serum antibody levels (lgG, lgM, and lgA) at a given point in time to estimate the time since seroconversion, which in turn gives an estimate of annual 'force of infection' in the tested population.
