dc.description.abstractThe presence of Campylobacter jejuni was studied in broiler chickens in poultry houses in south central Puerto Rico, during April and May of 2005. The sample was fresh feces collected from the chicken bed in different points of the poultry house. Part of the samples were transported to the Laboratory of Microbiology in the Department of Biology at the University of Puerto Rico, Mayaguez Campus (UPRM) and the other part was sent to Laboratory of Poultry Science at Auburn University for genetic studies. The samples isolated at UPRM in mCCDA (modified Charcoal Cefoperazone Deoxycholate Agar) and CCA (Campy cemex Agar) plates showed the presence of Campylobacter confirmed by phase microscopy observation. The samples sent to Auburn University after recuperation were tested with PCR and antibiotic resistance. The PCR result confirmed every sample tested was Campylobacter jejuni.
dc.description.abstractSe estudió la presencia de Campylobacter jejuni en pollos parrilleros en granjas avícolas en la zona centro sur de Puerto Rico durante los meses de abril y mayo del 2005. La muestra fue materia fecal fresca recolectada desde la camada en diferentes puntos del ranchón. Parte de la muestra se transportó al laboratorio de microbiología del Departamento de Biología de Universidad de Puerto Rico en Mayagüez (UPRM) y otra parte fue enviada al Laboratorio de Ciencias Avícolas de la Universidad de Auburn para estudios genéticos. Las muestras se cultivaron en UPRM en platos de mCCDA (modified Charcoal Cefoperazone Deoxycholate Agar) y CCA (campy cefex agar), demostraron la presencia de Campylobacter confirmado por su observación en microscopio de fase. Las muestras enviadas a Auburn tras ser recuperadas se sometieron a pruebas de PCR y resistencia antibiótica. Las pruebas de PCR confirmaron que todas las muestras analizadas eran Campylobacter jejuni.
