Giardiasis caused by the intestinal flagellate Giardia duodenalis. It is postulated that animals may be a reservoir for human infection and vice versa, thus, giardiasis classified as a zooanthroponotic disease. Therefore, accurate information about the Giardia infection in animals can help the control and prevention of disease in human. With respect to considerable population of cats in Iran and close relation to human, in the current study we tried to determine the infection rate of Giardia in… Expand

Contribution of environmental media to cryptosporidiosis and giardiasis prevalence in Tehran: a focus on surface waters
Monitoring of surface waters in Tehran suggested that untreated surface waters may be a potential route of human exposure to protozoan parasites and a significant correlation between Giardia and Cryptosporidium densities confirms the common sources of pollution in surface waters. Expand
