Structures of Toxoplasma gondiiTachyzoites, Bradyzoites, and Sporozoites and Biology and Development of Tissue Cysts
A detailed account of the biology of tissue cysts and bradyzoites including in vivo and in vitro development, methods of separation from host tissue, tissue cyst rupture, and relapse is provided. Expand
A review of Neospora caninum and neosporosis.
Neospora caninum is a recently recognized protozoan parasite of animals, which until 1988 was misidentified as Toxoplasma gondii. Its life cycle is unknown. Transplacental transmission is the onlyExpand
Dogs are definitive hosts of Neospora caninum.
Dogs are a definitive host of Neospora caninum, and mice inoculated with canine faecal extracts were monitored for evidence of neosporosis using a variety of morphologic, immunohistologic, serologic, and genetic analyses. Expand
Neonatal Neospora caninum infection in dogs: isolation of the causative agent and experimental transmission.
Neospora caninum infection was diagnosed in 5 young dogs from 2 litters with a common parentage that developed hind limb paresis 5 to 8 weeks after birth and was isolated in cell cultures, mice, and dogs inoculated with infected canine tissues. Expand
A review of Sarcocystis neurona and equine protozoal myeloencephalitis (EPM).
Information is reviewed on the history, structure, life cycle, biology, pathogenesis, induction of disease in animals, clinical signs, diagnosis, pathology, epidemiology, and treatment of equine protozoal myeloencephalitis caused by S. neurona. Expand
Cryptosporidium andersoni n. sp. (Apicomplexa: Cryptosporiidae) from Cattle, Bos taurus
Based on transmission studies and molecular data, the large form of Cryptosporidium infecting the abomasum of cattle is considered to be a new species and the name Cryptospora andersoni n. Expand
Toxoplasma gondii: epidemiology, feline clinical aspects, and prevention.
Because of their fastidious nature, the passing of non-infective oocysts, and the short duration of oocyst shedding, direct contact with cats is not thought to be a primary risk for human infection. Expand
Biology of Isospora spp. from humans, nonhuman primates, and domestic animals
Intestinal stages of I. belli have been observed in AIDS patients but not immunocompetent patients, and maintenance treatment with trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole is needed because relapses often occur once treatment is stopped. Expand
Zoonotic protozoa: from land to sea.
This review addresses the extent of contamination and the animals affected by three genera of important zoonotic protozoa: Giardia, Cryptosporidium and Toxoplasma. Expand
Toxoplasmosis and other intestinal coccidial infections in cats and dogs.
The diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of infections in cats and dogs related to Isospora spp, Toxoplasma gondii, and Neospora caninum are reviewed. Expand
