High Diversity of Cryptosporidium Species and Subtypes Identified in Cryptosporidiosis Acquired in Sweden and Abroad

The aim of this study was to expand the knowledge on the molecular epidemiology of human cryptosporidiosis in Sweden to better understand transmission patterns and potential zoonotic sources.

Genetic diversity of Cryptosporidium spp. including novel identification of the Cryptosporidium muris and Cryptosporidium tyzzeri in horses in the Czech Republic and Poland

Faecal samples were collected from 352 horses on 23 farms operating under six different management systems in the Czech Republic and Poland during 2011 and 2012 and Cryptosporidium was found only on farms where horses were kept on pasture during the day and in a stable overnight.

Prevalence and genotypic identification of Cryptosporidium in free-ranging and farm-raised donkeys (Equus asinus asinus) in Xinjiang, China

The predominance of C. hominis in donkeys suggests that these animals are infected through human contact, and Cryptosporidium-positive isolates were subtyped using PCR analysis of the 60 kDa glycoprotein gene (gp60).



Genetic Diversity and Zoonotic Potential of Cryptosporidium parvum Causing Foal Diarrhea

Foal C. parvum isolates were genetically diverse, markedly similar to human and bovine isolates, and carried GP60 IIaA18G3R1 alleles, indicating a zoonotic potential.

Identification of Novel Cryptosporidium Genotypes from the Czech Republic

ABSTRACT Isolates of Cryptosporidium from the Czech Republic were characterized from a variety of different hosts using sequence and phylogenetic analysis of the 18S ribosomal DNA and the heat-shock

Subtype Analysis of Cryptosporidium Specimens from Sporadic Cases in Colorado, Idaho, New Mexico, and Iowa in 2007: Widespread Occurrence of One Cryptosporidium hominis Subtype and Case History of an Infection with the Cryptosporidium Horse Genotype

One previously rare Cryptosporidium hominis subtype was indentified in 40 cases (70%) from all four states, and the Cryptospora horse genotype was identified in a pet shop employee with severe clinical symptoms.

Unusual Cryptosporidium Genotypes in Human Cases of Diarrhea

During a long-term genotyping in the United Kingdom, 3 unusual Cryptosporidium genotypes (skunk, horse, and rabbit) in human patients with diarrhea were identified.

Genotypes and subtypes of Cryptosporidium spp. in neonatal calves in Northern Ireland

This work demonstrates the utility of genotyping and subtyping tools in characterizing the transmission of Cryptosporidium spp.
