-associated gastroenteritis remains an important cause of morbidity worldwide, and some evidence suggests
that poultry is an important source of this foodborne infection in humans. This study was conducted to analyze the prevalenceand genetic background of resistance of 149 Campylobacter jejuni
and 54 Campylobacter coli
strains isolated from broilerchicken carcasses and from stool samples of infected children in Poland from 2003 through 2005. Nearly all isolates weresusceptible to macrolides and aminoglycosides. The highest resistance in both human and chicken strains was observed forciprofloxacin (more than 40%), followed by ampicillin (13 to 21%), and tetracycline (8 to 29%). Resistance to ampicillin andtetracycline rose significantly between 2003 and 2005. Slight differences in resistance between human and chicken isolatesindicate that although chicken meat is not the only source of Campylobacter
infection in our population, it can be involvedin the transmission of drug-resistant Campylobacter
strains to humans.
