Campylobacter usually are acquired through contaminated food, especially undercooked poultry.
Infections may cause diarrhea, but may also be asymptomatic. In most cases no antibiotic therapy is needed. Overall resistance rates are higher in C. coli than in C. jejuni and for fluoroquinolones than for macrolides.

For this analysis invasive isolates (blood and cerebrospinal fluid) tested against the corresponding antibiotic (category) were considered only. If multiple antibiotics within the same antibiotic category were tested, the most resistant result was selected. In case of multiple isolates, the first isolate per patient, microorganism and calendar year was included only. Results are reported as delivered by laboratories. Statistics may be influenced by the changing number of laboratories participating. Data are provided for surveillance purposes and are not intended to be used for therapeutic decisions solely.
