Risk Assessment on the Human Health Impact of Fluoroquinolone Resistant Campylobacter Associated with the Consumption of Chicken

October 18, 2000

Revised as of January 5, 2001

The Center for Veterinary Medicine prepared the following risk assessment concerning fluoroquinolone-resistance in Campylobacter found in poultry.

In addition an Excel version of the Risk Assessment Model has been included. This working model will allow modelers to either determine the risk using data sources other than those used in the model or allow use of different methods or distributions to model the risk.

Important Notice: Working @RISK model of the analysis described in the report of "The human health impact of fluoroquinolone resistance Campylobacter associated with the consumption of chicken." Please note that despite the *.xls extension, this file will not be functional and will not have numeric values printed in all the cells unless the user opens it with @RISK 4.0. If the user does not have this software available, opening the file in Excel will allow the user to see input data values and the functions that were used to generate intermediary and final outputs of the model. The output cells, however, will contain "#NAME?" because the @RISK 4.0 functions will be unknown to Excel.
