Campylobacteriosis, which has been the most reported gastrointestinal disease in EU since 2005, affected more than 220,000 people in 2019. Salmonellosis was the second most reported zoonotic disease in the EU, affecting about 88,000 people.
The consumption of poultry products, especially chicken meat, is considered the most common route for human campylobacteriosis. And it is very easy to become infected – as many as 30% of infections are caused by improper handling of raw meat in our kitchens!
Within the C-SNIPER project, 5 European partners (AZTI, Institute of Animal Reproduction and Food Research PAS, University of Turin, Phage Technology Center GmbH and O.R.A. Società Agricola) aim to reduce the prevalence of Campylobacter in poultry through the development and validation of an innovative phage-based mitigation strategy that can be integrated into existing hygiene protocols.
