Cryptosporidium muris-like oocysts were isolated from large Japanese field mice, Apodemus speciosus. Morphologically, these oocysts resembled those obtained from a C. andersoni Kawatabi isolate but were smaller in size than those from a C.muris isolate. Following oral inoculation of the oocysts into large Japanese field mice and SCID mice, developing stages… CONTINUE READING
