Research on Salmonella spp. continues unabated for a variety of different reasons. These organisms cause acute gastroenteritis and systemic typhoid disease in man, as well as other important infections in domestic animals. In addition, metabolically crippled Salmonellae are likely to be used increasingly as vectors for delivering extraneous immunogens. The steepling increase in Salmonella-induced gastroenteritis in developed countries has undoubtedly fuelled the current explosion of research in this area.
