One and two Cryptosporidium-positive isolates were obtained in horses by microscopy and by PCR, respectively. The two C. andersoni isolates. SIR, – We read with interest the findings of Moriarty and others (VR, February 5, , vol , pp ) concerning the prevalence of Cryptosporidium. The difference in the duration of diarrhea of C. andersoni and C. hominis indicated that different Cryptosporidium species might cause different.

Unlike Plasmodiumwhich transmits via a mosquito vector, Cryptosporidium does not use an insect vector, and is capable of completing its lifecycle within a single host, resulting in cyst stages that are excreted in feces or through coughing fomites and are capable of transmission to a new host.

Abstract Background Horses interact with humans in a wide variety of sport competitions and non-competitive recreational pursuits as well as in working activities. This article has been cited by other articles in PMC.

Additionally, the nationwide epidemiological survey is essential for the exact knowledge andersonu infection status of C. Based on morphological characterization described by other researchers, 2425 it was revealed that cattle in the region harbored at least two Cryptosporidium species.

However, epidemiological data of cryptosporidiosis, especially molecular data, are still scarcer in horses. The prevalence of Cryptosporidium infection was also significantly higher in The diarrhea caused by cryptosporidiosis anddrsoni depending on the health status of the infected hosts.


The data were analyzed by RW and WZ. Please review our privacy policy. This finding suggests that respiratory cryptosporidiosis may occur commonly in immunocompetent individuals.
