Abstract: One of the most important objective of our research was to study the antimicrobial susceptibility of Campylobacter jejuni and Campylobacter coli strains after their isolation from samples of algerian turkey slaughterhouses (neck skins and caecums). 200 samples were collected in 3 turkey slaughterhouses. After research and identification of the thermotolerant Campylobacter (ISO 10272, 1995; WHO, 2003; OIE, 2005), an antibiogram was realized with the gel diffusion method in culture media (CA-SFM, 2007). The tested antibiotics were ampicillin (AM), gentamicin (GM), erythromycin (E), ciprofloxacin (CIP), tetracycline (TE), chloramphenicol (C) and nalidixic acid (NA). Our results showed that the isolated strains were resistant to the majority of the tested antibiotics: ampicillin (66%), erythromycin (25%), ciprofloxacin (75%), tetracycline (81%) and nalidixic acid (88%). No resistance was recorded for gentamicin (0%) and chloramphenicol (0%). Furthermore, 20 different resistance profiles were established. In conclusion, turkey participates wildly in the emergence of antibiotic resistance phenomenon.
