  1. *NT = Not Tested for. Campylobacter from water, stool, and the meat was all susceptible to ciprofloxacin and thus not included in this table. Expert interpretation rules embedded in the WHONET software were used to classify as resistant or susceptible. The CLSI clinical guidelines and breakpoints were used to analyse the data sets. AMP = ampicillin, AMC = amoxicillin-clavulanate, CXM = cefuroxime, CXA = cefuroxime axetil, FOX = cefoxitin, AMK = amikacin, GEN = gentamicin, CIP = ciprofloxacin, SXT = trimethoprim-sulphamethoxazole, NIT = nitrofurantoin
