The aim of this study was to compare the apparent virulence of three genotypically different Giardia isolates (PO1, VNB3, and WB). METHODS Infection rates, parasite loads, structural damage, disaccharidase activity, and water and electrolyte absorption were observed at 10 days after inoculation in a neonatal rat model of… CONTINUE READING
