OBJECTIVE Pigs, as hosts of zoonotic Cryptosporidium species/genotypes, are domestic animals with public health significance. The present study was to characterize the infection rate and species/genotype of Cryptosporidium in pre-weaned and post-weaned pigs from Shanghai and Shaoxing, China. METHODS A total of 208 fecal samples (42 from pre-weaned piglets, and 166 from post-weaned pigs) were examined by nested PCR of the 18S rRNA gene and analyzed by phylogenetic DNA fragment sequencing of… Expand
Prevalence and molecular characterization of Cryptosporidium spp. in pigs in Xinjiang, China.
TLDR
The identification of three Cryptosporidium species, including zoonotic C. parvum in pigs in Xinjiang raises concern for the health of both swine animals and personnel in the pig industry. Expand
Age-related detection and molecular characterization of Cryptosporidium suis and Cryptosporidium scrofarum in pre- and post-weaned piglets and adult pigs in Japan
TLDR
The results suggest that Cryptosporidium infection is widespread among pigs in Japan and the possibility of age-related specificity and pathogenicity in pig infections is also suggested. Expand
Molecular identification and epidemiological comparison of Cryptosporidium spp. among different pig breeds in Tibet and Henan, China
TLDR
This is the first report on the identification of Cryptosporidium spp. Expand
Prevalence of Cryptosporidium in pigs in China: A systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
The results showed that cryptosporidiosis was widespread in pigs in China, and appropriate control schemes should be developed according to the differences in breeding patterns and geographical conditions in different regions, and effective management measures should be develop to reduce the spread between pigs. Expand
Cryptosporidium and Giardia in Danish organic pig farms: Seasonal and age-related variation in prevalence, infection intensity and species/genotypes.
TLDR
The infection intensity was age-related for both parasites, and dual-infected pigs tended to excrete lower levels of oocysts compared to pigs harbouring only Cryptosporidium, and no correlation between faecal consistency and (oo-)cyst excretion levels was observed. Expand
Molecular Epidemiology of Cryptosporidiosis in China
TLDR
Coordinated research efforts should be made to address changes in Cryptosporidium transmission because of rapid economic development in China and to prevent the introduction and spread of virulent and zoonotic Cryptospora species and subtypes in farm animals. Expand
Occurrence, Molecular Characterization, and Assessment of Zoonotic Risk of Cryptosporidium spp., Giardia duodenalis, and Enterocytozoon bieneusi in Pigs in Henan, Central China
TLDR
The findings indicate that the presence of zoonotic species/assemblages/genotypes of these pathogens poses a threat to public health, suggesting that pigs in Henan province could be a significant source of human infection and water pollution. Expand
Occurrence, clinical involvement and zoonotic potential of endoparasites infecting Swiss pigs
TLDR
The most frequently detected parasite was Balantidium coli, a facultative pathogenic ciliate with zoonotic potential, in 5.1% of suckling, weaners and fatteners and 43.2% of farms; however, no association with disease was observed. Expand
Occurrence, source, and human infection potential of Cryptosporidium and Enterocytozoon bieneusi in drinking source water in Shanghai, China, during a pig carcass disposal incident.
TLDR
It is suggested that dead pigs contributed significantly to Cryptosporidium and E. bieneusi contamination in the Huangpu River and should be useful in the development of strategies in addressing future contamination events in drinking water supplies. Expand
Prevalence of Cryptosporidium Infection in Buffalo Calves with Special Reference to Urea and Creatinine Levels
TLDR
Dealing with biochemical changes, the infected animals showed significant increase in serum urea and creatinine than healthy ones, and Cryptosporidiosis had an adverse effect on biochemical parameters of infected buffalo-calves. Expand

Prevalence and molecular identification of Cryptosporidium spp. in pigs in Henan, China
TLDR
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
Prevalence of Cryptosporidium genotypes in pre and post-weaned pigs in Australia.
TLDR
Pig genotype II was significantly associated with 'normal' stools, indicating an asymptomatic nature in the porcine host, suggesting that domestic pigs do not pose a significant public health risk. Expand

TLDR
The pre-weaned pigs shed significantly more Cryptosporidium oocysts than older pigs and it was associated with C. suis infection, and no relationship was found between diarrhoea and any Cryptospora infection in any of the different age groups. Expand

TLDR
Faecal samples from 1488 pigs collected from six pig farms in Jiangsu province and Shanghai city, eastern China were stained by the modified acid‐fast staining technique (MAFS) and observed by light and phase contrast microscopy to identify Cryptosporidium oocysts, showing most similar to the C. parvum‘mouse’ genotype.
