Abstract

During 2002, inside Campyg Working Group Project, we examined from 8 italian laboratories the patterns of resistances of 205 strains of Campylobacter spp.These strains were: 88% C. jejuni (68% biotype 1, 31% biotype 2, 1% biotype 3), 11% C. coli (95.5% biotype 1) and 1% Clo’s.We observed these resistances: to erythromycin 3.5% (2.2% in C. jejuni, 13.6% in C. coli), to rokitamicin 2.5 % (1.1% and 13.6% respectively), to ciprofloxacin 49.5% (51.1% and 63.6%), to tetracycline 45.0% (43.3% and 59.1%), to minocycline 41.6% (40.0% and 54.5%), to gentamycin 0.5%, to chloramphenicole no ones. Some differences concerning frequency of resistances were observed among 8 laboratories, also between C. jejuni b. 1 and C. jejuni b. 2, but these were not significative. Some suggests are given for continuing this surveillance, from an epidemiological point of view too.
