Detection and molecular characterisation of Cryptosporidium spp. in Swedish pigs

Cryptosporidium is a genus of apicomplexan parasites that cause enteric disease in vertebrates. In pigs, infections are most often asymptomatic, but may result in diarrhoea and poor growth. The most

Prevalence and multilocus genotyping of potentially zoonotic Giardia duodenalis in pigs in Shanghai, China

Investigation of the prevalence of Giardia in pigs in China and its genetic characterization found two pig isolates showed 100% homology with human-derived isolates from Australia and China at the bg and tpi loci respectively.

Occurrence, Molecular Characterization, and Assessment of Zoonotic Risk of Cryptosporidium spp., Giardia duodenalis, and Enterocytozoon bieneusi in Pigs in Henan, Central China

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.

Multilocus genotyping of Giardia duodenalis from pigs in Korea.

Prevalence and multilocus genotypes of Giardia duodenalis infecting pigs in Ogun state, Nigeria.

Molecular identification and epidemiological comparison of Cryptosporidium spp. among different pig breeds in Tibet and Henan, China

This is the first report on the identification of Cryptosporidium spp.

First Characterization and Zoonotic Potential of Cryptosporidium spp. and Giardia duodenalis in Pigs in Hubei Province of China

The findings suggest that both of those parasites in pig in intensive farms of Hubei province, China, pose a potential public health risk.

Occurrence of Cryptosporidium and Giardia in wild birds from Qinghai Lake on the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau, China

The results of the present study demonstrated the wide distribution of Cryptosporidium and Giardia among wild birds, which has potential public health significance, and provided useful molecular epidemiological data for monitoring and investigating the two parasitic protozoa in wild animals and surrounding environments.

Zoonotic Cryptosporidium spp. in Wild Rodents and Shrews

It is indicated that Cryptosporidium protozoan are present in mouse, vole and shrew populations around Finland and the highest zoonotic risk is associated with C. ditrichi in Apodemus flavicollis and C. andersoni in Craseomys rufocanus.



Prevalence of Cryptosporidium species in intensively farmed pigs in Ireland

Infections with Cryptosporidium parvum, the most important zoonotic species were rare and are likely to be of greater concern to animal handlers than suppliers of drinking water.

Age-related infection with Cryptosporidium species and genotype in pigs in China.

It is suggested that pigs may be a source of zoonotic Cryptosporidium water pollution, and improvements in pig feeding practices, sewage discharge, feces disposal and field worker protection are therefore important to prevent potential public health problems.

Biology of Cryptosporidium parvum in pigs: from weaning to market.

Molecular and phylogenetic characterization of Cryptosporidium and Giardia from pigs and cattle in Denmark

The genetic diversity of Cryptosporidium spp. and Giardia duodenalis from dairy cattle and pigs in Denmark was determined in the present study. Faecal samples from 1237 pigs and 1150 cattle

Prevalence of Cryptosporidium genotypes in pre and post-weaned pigs in Australia.

Prevalence and pathogenicity of Cryptosporidium suis in pre- and post-weaned pigs.

No relationship was found between diarrhoea and Cryptosporidium infection in any of the different age groups (pre- and post-weaned piglets).

Age related susceptibility of pigs to Cryptosporidium scrofarum infection.
