Campylobacter is the most significant bacterial cause of food-borne infections in the Nordic countries, in Europe and many countries worldwide. Source attribution modelling is used to identify the major sources of human illness. Existing models for Campylobacter source attribution are based on a comparison of the distribution of subtypes (MLST) in human cases and different reservoirs e.g. broilers and cattle.
This Nordic project brings together existing knowledge on source attribution modelling and data on Campylobacter subtypes in animals, food and humans from Sweden, Norway, Finland, and Denmark. The aim is to study differences in subtype distribution and the potential of a multi-country attribution model.
This is a joint Nordic project which intends to increase our understanding of Campylobacter epidemiology and identify the need for adaptation of models to handle the input of multi-country data. Furthermore, we would like to propose a recommendation for future harmonized sampling to satisfy the data need for presenting an estimate for the source attribution of Nordic Campylobacter.
The project partners include people from SVA in Sweden, NVI in Norway, Evira in Finland, and DTU in Denmark.
The project is funded by Nordisk Arbejdsgruppe for Mikrobiologi, Dyrehelse og Dyrevelfærd (NMDD).
