OCHOA, S, SIMALUIZA, R J, TOLEDO, Z et al. Frequency and antimicrobial behaviour of thermophilic Campylobacter species isolated from Ecuadorian backyard chickens. Arch. med. vet., 2016, vol.48, no.3, p.311-314. ISSN 0301-732X.

The prevalence and antimicrobial behaviour of Campylobacter jejuni/coli isolated from backyard chickens from Southern Ecuador were determined. This study revealed that Campylobacter sp. frequency was 41.7% with high resistance to tetracycline (94.0%) and ciprofloxacin (88%). C. jejuni was the most frequently isolated species (32.5%), followed by C. coli (9.2%) being poultry colonization by Campylobacter not region dependent. This is the first study on Campylobacter antimicrobial resistance in backyard chickens in Southern Ecuador.

Keywords: Campylobacter; backyard chickens; antimicrobial resistance; Ecuador.
