Abstract

Background: Overnight international travels made by Finns more than doubled during 1995-2015. To estimate risks and observe trends of travel-related notifiable sexually transmitted and food- and water-borne infections (STIs and FWIs) among travellers, we analysed national reports of gonorrhoea,...

Abstract

We studied food and water-borne diseases (FWDs), sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), vector-borne diseases (VBDs) and diseases vaccinated against in the Swedish childhood vaccination programme among Swedish international travellers, in order to identify countries associated with a high number of...

Abstract

We estimated the true incidence of campylobacteriosis and salmonellosis in the European Union (EU) in 2009. The estimate was based on disease risks of returning Swedish travellers, averaged over the years 2005-2009, and anchored to a Dutch population-based study on incidence and aetiology of...

Abstract

The Norwegian Surveillance System for Communicable Diseases (MSIS) includes variables related to travel for clinicians to fill when notifying travel-associated infections. We measured the completeness and validated the travel-history information for salmonellosis, campylobacteriosis, giardiasis and ...

Abstract

Residential locations of cases are often used as proxy measures for the likely place of exposure and this assumption may result in biases affecting both surveillance and epidemiological studies. This study aimed to describe the importance of domestic travel in cases of human campylobacteriosis...

Abstract

This paper summarizes data on foreign travel-associated infections reported in Norway during 2007. Gastrointestinal infections were the most frequently reported foreign travel-associated infections among holiday travellers. In 2007, these infections constituted 80% of all reported notifiable...

Abstract

The relative importance of different risk-factors for Campylobacter infections and the role of bacterial strain and host characteristics are uncertain. Swimming in natural sources of water was recently described as a novel independent risk-factor for domestically-acquired Campylobacter infections....

Abstract

A matched case-control study was conducted to study the risk factors for domestically acquired sporadic Campylobacter infections in Finland, during 1 July-30 September 2002. One hundred patients (99 patients infected with C. jejuni and one with C. coli; 42 males and 58 females; mean age, 51 years)...

Abstract

A case-control study comprising 282 cases (average age, 24 years) and 319 matched controls was conducted in Denmark, during 1 May 1996-12 May 97. Two estimates of the odds ratio (OR) were determined for each risk factor with and without 'protective factors' fitted into the final model. Consumption...

Abstract

The impact of travel away from home within or outside the UK on the overall burden of Campylobacter infection is assessed. During the first year ending 30 April 2001, epidemiological information was gained from 7360 of 9655 (76%) cases of Campylobacter infection. Recent foreign travel was reported...
