The present work calculated the rate of inactivation of Cryptosporidium parvum oocysts attributable to daily oscillations of low ambient temperatures. The relationship between air temperature and the internal temperature of bovine feces on commercial operations was measured, and three representative 24-h thermal regimens in the approximately 15 degrees C, approximately 25 degrees C, and approximately 35 degrees C ranges were chosen and emulated using a thermocycler. C. parvum oocysts suspended… CONTINUE READING
