Preventive, legally prescribed medical examinations of the population under sanitary supervision, with the aim of diagnosing asymptomatic lambliasis, include the application of conventional microscopic examination (CVM) with concentration technique (CT)of one stool sample. The aim of the paper was to compare the results obtained by the enzyme imnunoassay (EIA) for detection of Giardia lamblia (G. lamblia) antigen in stool, with the results of the investigation of asymptomatic lambliasis by CVM…

Upgrading and making the diagnosis/detection procedures more uniform is recommended throughout the region and public health authorities should actively work towards increasing reporting and standardising reporting practices as these prerequisites for the reported data to be valid and therefore necessary for appropriate control plans.

Detection of Giardia lamblia and Entamoeba histolytica in Stool Samples by Two Enzyme Immunoassays

Antigen detection by EIA has the potential to become a valuable tool capable of making stool diagnostics more effective, although it should not be considered as a replacement for microscopic examination, since other potential pathogens could otherwise escape detection.

Modern diagnostics of giardiasis

Lately, the diagnostics of giardiasis has been complemented with up-to-date commercial assays for detection of GD protozoan antigen in feces, which are characterized by high sensitivity, specificity and diagnostic efficiency.

The ProSpecT Giardia assay had the highest sensitivity of the assays evaluated (91%), and its interpretation was the easiest, and may replace microscopic examination in areas of high endemicity.

Stool diagnosis of giardiasis using a commercially available enzyme immunoassay to detect Giardia-specific antigen 65 (GSA 65)

Overall, the ProSpecT/Giardia test was a sensitive, specific immunoassay which was easy to run and interpret and offers a simple solution to traditional difficulties encountered in diagnosing Giardia infection.

Comparison of Nine Commercially Available Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assays for Detection of Giardia lamblia in Fecal Specimens

Nine enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs) evaluated were found to be rapid, sensitive, and specific for the detection of G. lamblia in fecal specimens.

Asymptomatic giardiasis-more prevalent in refugees than in native inhabitants of the city of Nis, Serbia

Asymptomatic giardiasis was more prevalent in the population group of refugees accommodated in collective centers than in native inhabitants in the Nis municipality, Serbia.

Epidemiologic surveillance for endemic Giardia lamblia infection in Vermont. The roles of waterborne and person-to-person transmission.

Waterborne transmission was suggested to be an important cause of non-outbreak-related cases because rates of infection were highest in persons receiving nonfiltered municipal or nonmunicipal residential drinking water and rates were higher at higher elevations, where water supplies may be difficult to protect from contamination.

Giardia Lamblia and Giardiasis With Particular Attention to the Sierra Nevada

One conclusion of this paper is that you can indeed contract giardiasis on visits to the Sierra Nevada, but it almost certainly won’t be from the water, so drink freely and confidently: Proper personal hygiene is far more important in avoiding gardiasis than treating the water.
