Cryptosporidiosis, as an emerging disease, has generated a tremendous amount of research. Our purpose is a survey of the epidemiology of this disease, emphasizing: the features of the parasites and the species and genotypes that may infect Man, the most frequent of which is Cryptosporidium parvum and its two genotypes "Cattle" and "Human"; the means of dissemination of the infective stage and of human contamination; the factors that put Man at risk of catching a severe infection; the basis of a… Expand
Prevalence and risk factors associated with Cryptosporidium spp. infection in local breed of dogs in Enugu State, Nigeria
The findings of this work suggest that domestic dogs in Enugu State harbor and shed Cryptosporidium spp. Expand
Cryptosporidium infection in humans and animals from Iraq: a review.
High prevalence of Cryptosporidium oocysts was recovered from many studies from different environmental matrices in different parts of Iraq including drinking tap water, which facilitates its transmission to humans and animals. Expand
Molecular detection of genotypes and subtypes of Cryptosporidium infection in diarrheic calves, lambs, and goat kids from Turkey.
The results indicate the high infection of Cryptosporidium in Turkey and suggest that calves, lambs, and goat kids are likely a major reservoir of C. parvum and a potential source of zoonotic transmission. Expand
Molecular characterization of Cryptosporidium spp. in dogs and cats in the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, reveals potentially zoonotic species and genotype
Despite the low prevalence of Cryptosporidium observed in the domiciled dogs and cats, the presence of potentially zoonotic C. parvum in dogs evidences a public health concern and further research is needed to better understand the epidemiology, source, and potential impacts of CryptOSporidium infection in cats and dogs.

Prevalence of Cryptosporidium spp. in farmed animals from steppe and high plateau regions in Algeria.
The results of the present study provide the first data on the prevalence of Cryptosporidium spp. Expand
Cross-sectional investigation of household transmission of Cryptosporidium in England and Wales: the epiCrypt study protocol
This project will estimate the amount of secondary spread that occurs in the home and potentially identify asymptomatic infections which might have a role in transmission of Cryptosporidium in North West England and Wales over 1 year. Expand
Exposures associated with infection with Cryptosporidium in industrialised countries: a systematic review protocol
This review aims to consolidate the evidence for transmission routes and exposures for Cryptosporidium in industrialised countries, with particular reference to how these may apply to the UK, and describe any differences between outbreak-associated and sporadic disease. Expand

Genotypic analysis of a large collection of 692 C. parvum isolates originating primarily from cattle and other ruminants from Italy, Ireland and Scotland found significant geographical segregation and a correlation between genetic and geographic distance, consistent with a model of isolation by distance.

Comparative evaluation of Cryptosporidium infection in malnourished and well-nourished children: Parasitic infections are affected by the interaction of nutritional status and socio-demographic characteristics.
Cryptosporidium-positive children were more malnourished compared to those who were negative for Cryptosporidia infection but this important finding was not statistically significant. Expand
Food-borne parasitic zoonoses in China: perspective for control.
The current status of theFBPZ problem in mainland China is reviewed and strategies and measures for effective control of FBPZs are proposed. Expand
