Salmonella – seroincidence calculator tool
Salmonellosis is one of the leading gastrointestinal diseases reported in the European Union. The reported number of cases represents only a small fraction of all infections actually occurring in the human population. This infographic was created to advertise ECDCs seroincidence calculator tool. This tool for human Salmonella and Campylobacter infections utilises the combination of serum antibody levels at a given point in time to estimate the time since seroconversion, which in turn gives an estimate of annual ‘force of infection’ in the tested population.
