Relative Risk of Listeriosis in Foodborne Diseases Active Surveillance Network (FoodNet) Sites According to Age, Pregnancy, and Ethnicity

Clin Infect Dis. (2012) 54(suppl 5): S405-S410 doi:10.1093/cid/cis269

http://cid.oxfordjournals.org/content/54/suppl_5/S405.abstract

Among non–pregnancy-associated cases, listeriosis incidence rates increased gradually with age .

The RR was significantly higher for Hispanics than for non-Hispanics.

Among women of reproductive age (15–44 years), pregnant women had a markedly higher listeriosis risk than nonpregnant women.

The RR was higher for Hispanic than non-Hispanic women, regardless of pregnancy status
