New Cryptosporidium Genotypes in HIV-Infected Persons
Using DNA sequencing and phylogenetic analysis, we identified four distinct Cryptosporidium genotypes in HIV-infected patients: genotype 1 (human), genotype 2 (bovine) Cryptosporidium parvum, aExpand
Molecular identification of Cryptosporidium spp. in animal and human hosts from the Czech Republic.
To study the diversity of Cryptosporidium spp. in various hosts, we used the variability of the small-subunit rRNA gene and the Cryptosporidium oocyst wall protein genes. Oocysts from humans, cattle,Expand
The severe combined immunodeficient mouse as a model for Encephalitozoon cuniculi microsporidiosis.
Microsporidia have been recently recognized as opportunistic pathogens in AIDS patients. In attempt to develop an animal model with features similar to the infections observed in the immunodeficientExpand
Cryptosporidium scrofarum n. sp. (Apicomplexa: Cryptosporidiidae) in domestic pigs (Sus scrofa).
We describe the morphological, biological, and molecular characteristics of Cryptosporidium pig genotype II and propose the species name Cryptosporidium scrofarum n. sp. to reflect its prevalence inExpand
Human Opisthorchis and Haplorchis infections in Laos.
A study of the epidemiology of trematode infections was carried out in Vientiane province, Laos, comprising examination of snails, fish, cats, and human stools. Opisthorchis viverrini cercariae wereExpand
Sources of potentially infectious human microsporidia: molecular characterisation of microsporidia isolates from exotic birds in the Czech Republic, prevalence study and importance of birds in
A total of 287 faecal specimens of captive exotic birds from the orders Psittaciformes, Passeriformes and Columbiformes were randomly collected from Bohemian pet stores, avian breeders and avianExpand
Cryptosporidium pig genotype II in immunocompetent man.

Helminth parasites of cats from the Vientiane province, Laos, as indicators of the occurrence of causative agents of human parasitoses.
A total of 55 domestic cats (Felis catus f. domestica) and one wild (Bengal) cat (Prionaluirus bengalensis) from the Vientiane Province, central Laos, were examined for helminth parasites withExpand
The first finding of Cryptosporidium baileyi in man.
Oocysts of cryptosporidia whose morphology and measurements corresponded with those of the species Cryptosporidium baileyi were found in the stool of an immunodeficient patient. In autopsy material,Expand
Detection of Encephalitozoon cuniculi in a new host—cockateel (Nymphicus hollandicus) using molecular methods
A total of 123 avian faecal specimens randomly collected in Bohemian commercial aviaries, Zoo parks and countryside were screened for the presence of human pathogenic microsporidia by both calcofluorExpand
