It has been recognized recently that human cryptosporidiosis is usually caused by Cryptosporidium parvum genotype I ("human" C. parvum), which is not found in animals. Compared to C. parvum genotype II, little is known of the biology of invasion of the human-restricted C. parvum genotype I. The aims of the present study were (i) to explore and compare with genotype II the pathogenesis of C. parvum genotype I infection by using an established in vitro model of infection and (ii) to examine the… CONTINUE READING
