  • BACKGROUND Giardia lamblia is ubiquitous in multiple communities of nonindustrialized nations. Genotypes A1, A2, and B (Nash groups 1, 2, and 3, respectively) are found in humans, whereas genotypes C and D are typically found in dogs. However, genotypes A and B have occasionally been identified in dogs. METHODS Fecal Giardia isolates from 22 families and their dogs, living in Pampas de San Juan, were collected over 7 weeks in 2002 and 6 weeks in 2003. Samples were genotyped, followed by… CONTINUE READING
