    Department of Medical Microbiology, Academic Medical Center, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
    J Clin Microbiol 41:5593-7. 2003
    ..Furthermore, given the observation that C. jejuni-associated diseases appear to be more severe from November to February, it can be speculated that this may be due to the presence of virulent clones with a limited span of circulation...
