TABLE 3.

MIC distributions and resistance rates of C. jejuni isolated from conventional and organic poultry farmsa

Embedded Image
  • a Thin vertical lines indicate the breakpoint between susceptible and intermediate strains. Thick vertical lines indicate the breakpoint between intermediate and resistant strains (except for nalidixic acid, for which it indicates the breakpoint between susceptible and resistant strains).

  • b C. jejuni isolates from conventional poultry farms (n = 240).

  • c C. jejuni isolates from organic poultry farms (n = 211).

  • d Different symbols between operation types (conventional and organic) indicate a significant difference (P < 0.05) by a chi-square test with Yates' correction for continuity.
