Hampson, D. and Stanton, T.B. (eds) (1997) Intestinal spirochaetes in domestic animals and humans. Cab International, Wallingford, UK.


Spirochaete bacteria are commonly found in the gastro-intestinal tracts of animals. A number of intestinal spirochaete species are now recognized as a cause of disease in a variety of animal species, including pigs, poultry and humans. This book is the first to review the literature on these important bacteria and the diseases they cause. It brings together the available information from different disciplines, and on different animal host species, and provides an overview of current understanding in the area.
