Knowledge of the epidemiology of the infections of the organism causes has been steadily accumulating. The majority of these infections are sporadic; is far less often recognized as a cause of outbreaks than is . In the first comprehensive epidemiological report of the European Centre of Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) covering 2005, campylobacteriosis was the most frequently occurring enteric bacterial infection, second only to infection among all diseases reported. Much of the difference in incidence rates between the otherwise comparable countries Denmark and The Netherlands is explained by the fact that all Danish laboratories report diagnoses to the national level, compared with 51% of the Dutch laboratories. As the efficacy of serological methods for diagnosis of infection are further validated, including appropriate control sera, and as mathematical models advance, the usefulness of seroepidemiology to study the incidence of infections will become clearer. The vast majority of infections are sporadic individual infections and often affect young adults and young children. Consumption of untreated water, raw milk, or milk products and contact with pets are important sources of infection. Routine treatment of drinking water and pasteurization of milk are core prevention strategies. Veterinary use of fluoroquinolones in poultry explains the recent rise in ciprofloxacin-resistant infections in humans in the United States and may explain much of the geographic variation in resistance around the world.
