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… 

Giardia spp. and Sarcocystis spp. status in pet dogs of Shiraz, Southern part of Iran.

Faecal samples of pet dogs and stray cats of Shiraz, Fars Province of Iran of different age groups, breeds, and sexes were tested, however no Giardia spp.

Efficacy of secnidazole in the treatment of giardiasis in a cat

The aim of this study is to examine parasitological findings of simultaneous infection by Giardia duodenalis in cat, and treatment of the disease by a single dose of secnidazole in cats with giardiasis in Turkey.

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.

Prevalence and genetic characterisation of Giardia duodenalis in river water and riverbed sediment using next-generation sequencing

Giardia duodenalis has been reported in different sources such as water, human stools, animal stools, vegetable farms and markets and soil of public places. However, different assemblages of

Detection of the "Tim" gene of sheep using "Tim" Gene of with human origin Giardia Giardia primers

The similarity of the sheep and human genomic characters of implies the possibility that there is transmission of Giardia Giardiaduodenalis and their probable zoonosis among humans and sheep.
