Numbers of Campylobacter jejuni 2140CD1 (a) and phages (b) in faeces from broilers orally administered a phage cocktail by gavage. Thirty day-old chicks were inoculated with Campylobacter jejuni 2140CD1. One week later the birds were randomly assigned to a treated group or an untreated group and were inoculated by oral gavage with antacid containing 1 × 106pfu of a phage cocktail, or antacid only respectively. Faecal samples were collected from all birds at intervals and Campylobacter and phages enumerated. Error bars represent the standard error of the mean. At 2 dpa, 4 dpa and 7 dpa there is a significant difference between control and infected group at P < 0.05.
