Prevalence and genetic characterization of Cryptosporidium, Enterocytozoon, Giardia and Cyclospora in diarrheal outpatients in china
Data indicated that C. andersoni is the fourth major Cryptosporidium species infecting humans in addition to C. hominis, C. parvum and C. meleagridis, and patients infected with Cryptospora and Enterocytozoon bieneusi had higher infection rates in winter than in spring in this area. Expand
Distribution and Genetic Characterizations of Cryptosporidium spp. in Pre-Weaned Dairy Calves in Northeastern China’s Heilongjiang Province
Background Cryptosporidium spp. are common parasites of humans and animals. Farm animals, especially pre-weaned calves, are considered to be one of main animal reservoir hosts of Cryptosporidium inExpand
Enterocytozoon bieneusi in Dairy Cattle in the Northeast of China: Genetic Diversity of ITS Gene and Evaluation of Zoonotic Transmission Potential
The observation of all the six known genotypes here reported previously in humans, and the fact that all the three novel genotypes falling into zoonotic group 1, indicate the possibility of cattle in the transmission of E. bieneusi to humans. Expand
Prevalence and molecular identification of Cryptosporidium spp. in pigs in Henan, China
Findings suggest that pigs are not a major source of zoonotic Cryptosporidium in the study area, and that the pig genotype II was relatively common in older pigs. Expand
High Prevalence of Enterocytozoon bieneusi in Asymptomatic Pigs and Assessment of Zoonotic Risk at the Genotype Level
The findings of a high prevalence of E. bieneusi in pigs and a large percentage of zoonotic genotypes indicate that pigs may play a role in the transmission of this enteric parasite to humans and may become an important source of water contamination in the investigated areas. Expand
Cryptosporidium andersoni as a novel predominant Cryptosporidium species in outpatients with diarrhea in Jiangsu Province, China
The fact that SSU rRNA sequences of C. andersoni obtained from human stools exhibited 100% homologous to those derived from dairy calves and goats supported that C.andersoni infection might be attributable to animal origin. Expand
MLST Subtypes and Population Genetic Structure of Cryptosporidium andersoni from Dairy Cattle and Beef Cattle in Northeastern China’s Heilongjiang Province
The finding of a clonal population genetic structure indicated that the prevalence of C. andersoni in cattle in Heilongjiang Province is not attributed to the introduction of cattle, and prevention and control strategies should be focused on making stricter measures to avoid the occurrence of cross-transmission and re-infection between cattle individuals.

Cryptosporidium cuniculus and Giardia duodenalis in Rabbits: Genetic Diversity and Possible Zoonotic Transmission
The results show that the rabbits have been infected with Cryptosporidium and Giardia in Heilongjiang Province and pose a threat to human health in the studied areas. Expand
Prevalence and Genetic Characterizations of Cryptosporidium spp. in Pre-Weaned and Post-Weaned Piglets in Heilongjiang Province, China
The detection of C. suis and C. scrofarum in pre-weaning and post-weaned piglets has public health implications, due to the fact that the two species are both zoonotic Cryptosporidium. Expand
The identification of the Cryptosporidium ubiquitum in pre-weaned Ovines from Aba Tibetan and Qiang autonomous prefecture in China.
It is suggested that the high incidence of Cryptosporidium in sheep poses a significant public health threat and that surveillance practices must be established to prevent zoonotic disease of humans. Expand
