Abstract. – Campylobacter enteritis is an emerging food borne zoonotic disease. Improperly cooked chicken serve as a potential source for this infection. Diarrheogenic potential of Campylobacter jejuni is tested either by in-vivo rat ileal loop (RIL) test or by molecular methods. This study reveals that 3-day-old chicks can serve as an animal model for toxigenic C. jejuni.
