Abstract

The standard method for determining the genotypes of Enterocytozoon bieneusi is based on the DNA sequence of the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region of the rRNA gene. There are 81 genotypes with 111 genotype names: 26 genotypes have been identified exclusively in humans, eight have been...

Abstract

Cryptosporidium is increasingly recognized as one of the major causes of moderate to severe diarrhoea in developing countries. With treatment options limited, control relies on knowledge of the biology and transmission of the members of the genus responsible for disease. Currently, 26 species are...

Abstract

Microsporidia are a ubiquitous group of obligate intracellular parasites that infect all major animal groups. Enterocytozoon bieneusi is the most commonly identified Microsporidia in humans and has also been reported worldwide in animals with importance in veterinary medicine (e.g. cats, dogs,...

Abstract

The structure and infectivity of the oocysts of a new species of Cryptosporidium from the feces of humans are described. Oocysts are structurally indistinguishable from those of Cryptosporidium parvum. Oocysts of the new species are passed fully sporulated, lack sporocysts, and measure 4.4-5.4 µm...

Abstract

To assess genetic diversity in Cryptosporidium parvum, the small subunit (SSU) rRNA gene was sequenced from 7 Cryptosporidium spp., various isolates of C. parvum from 8 hosts, and a Cryptosporidium isolate from a desert monitor (Varanus griseus). Phylogenetic analysis of the SSU rRNA sequences...

Abstract

Individual sporocysts containing 4 sporozoites were shed in the faeces of dogs, foxes, and raccoons after ingestion of bovine tissue infected with Sarcocystis fusiformis bradyzoites. No sporocysts were shed by cats, monkeys, pigs, skunks, ferrets, rats, guinea-pigs or rabbits after ingestion of...
