Cyclospora: an enigma worth unraveling. (1/87)

In part, Cyclospora cayetanensis owes its recognition as an emerging pathogen to the increased use of staining methods for detecting enteric parasites such as Cryptosporidium. First reported in patients in New Guinea in 1977 but thought to be a coccidian parasite of the genus Isospora, C. cayetanensis received little attention until it was again described in 1985 in New York and Peru. In the early 1990s, human infection associated with waterborne transmission of C. cayetanensis was suspected; foodborne transmission was likewise suggested in early studies. The parasite was associated with several disease outbreaks in the United States during 1996 and 1997. This article reviews current knowledge about C. cayetanensis (including its association with waterborne and foodborne transmission), unresolved issues, and research needs.  (+info)

Cyclosporiasis: clinical and histopathologic correlates. (2/87)

Although the histopathologic changes associated with Cyclospora cayetanensis infection have been previously described, the histopathology and the appearance of various life cycle stages have not been correlated with severity, stage, and duration of clinical disease. We report a prospective clinical investigation of disease characteristics and histopathologic findings in three otherwise healthy, immunocompetent patients with symptomatic C. cayetanensis infection, the duration of which ranged from 6 to 60 days. Varying degrees of gross and microscopic gastrointestinal inflammation were seen before treatment. An electron-dense phospholipid membrane/myelin-like material was variably present both before and after treatment. The greatest amount of myelin-like material was seen in the patient with prolonged disease. The results of our study suggest that inflammatory changes associated with C. cayetanensis infection may persist beyond parasite eradication. It is intriguing to speculate that the myelin-like material is a marker for persistent inflammation, but further study and confirmation are needed.  (+info)

Morphologic and molecular characterization of new Cyclospora species from Ethiopian monkeys: C. cercopitheci sp.n., C. colobi sp.n., and C. papionis sp.n. (3/87)

In recent years, human cyclosporiasis has emerged as an important infection, with large outbreaks in the United States and Canada. Understanding the biology and epidemiology of Cyclospora has been difficult and slow and has been complicated by not knowing the pathogen s origins, animal reservoirs (if any), and relationship to other coccidian parasites. This report provides morphologic and molecular characterization of three parasites isolated from primates and names each isolate: Cyclospora cercopitheci sp.n. for a species recovered from green monkeys, C. colobi sp.n. for a parasite from colobus monkeys, and C. papionis sp.n. for a species infecting baboons. These species, plus C. cayetanensis, which infects humans, increase to four the recognized species of Cyclospora infecting primates. These four species group homogeneously as a single branch intermediate between avian and mammalian Eimeria. Results of our analysis contribute toward clarification of the taxonomic position of Cyclospora and its relationship to other coccidian parasites.  (+info)

Extraction-free, filter-based template preparation for rapid and sensitive PCR detection of pathogenic parasitic protozoa. (4/87)

Within the last several years, the protozoan parasites Cyclospora cayetanensis, Cryptosporidium parvum, and microsporidia have become recognized as important, rapidly emerging human pathogens in immunocompromised and immunocompetent individuals. Since the early 1990s, many of the reported outbreaks of enteric illness caused by these microorganisms have been attributed to food- and water-borne contamination. Many inherent obstacles affect the success of current surveillance and detection methods used to monitor and control levels of contamination by these pathogens. Unlike methods that incorporate preenrichment for easier and unambiguous identification of bacterial pathogens, similar methods for the detection of parasitic protozoa either are not currently available or cannot be performed in a timely manner. We have developed an extraction-free, filter-based protocol to prepare DNA templates for use in PCR to identify C. cayetanensis and C. parvum oocysts and microsporidia spores. This method requires only minimal preparation to partially purify and concentrate isolates prior to filter application. DNA template preparation is rapid, efficient, and reproducible. As few as 3 to 10 parasites could be detected by PCR from direct application to the filters. In studies, as few 10 to 50 Encephalitozoon intestinalis spores could be detected when seeded in a 100-microliter stool sample and 10 to 30 C. cayetanensis oocysts could be detected per 100 g of fresh raspberries. This protocol can easily be adapted to detect parasites from a wide variety of food, clinical, and environmental samples and can be used in multiplex PCR applications.  (+info)

A gel delivery system for coccidiosis vaccine: uniformity of distribution of oocysts. (5/87)

A patented gel delivery system being used to deliver coccidiosis vaccine to poultry hatchlings is assessed. For effective vaccination, the coccidial oocysts must be uniformly suspended before exposure to birds. The uniformity of distribution within the gel was evaluated by incorporating a culture of chicken gut flora into gel sausages, placing sections of the sausage on culture plates, determining the appearance and distribution of bacterial colonies on culture plates after incubation, and verifying by cell counts. The uniformity of distribution of similarly prepared coccidial oocysts was verified by infecting birds with 40,000 Eimeria tenella oocysts delivered via the gel. Gel-inoculated birds were compared with control birds inoculated PO with 40,000 oocysts suspended in water by using cecal lesion scores. Both the appearance and colony counts of chicken gut flora from the gel were uniform. The standard deviation in the lesion scores for the gel-inoculated group and the water-inoculated groups were 0.51 and 0.69, respectively. The results indicate that a gel delivery system can provide uniform distribution of live organisms and vaccine agents to birds.  (+info)

An indirect enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for diagnosis of American canine hepatozoonosis. (6/87)

American canine hepatozoonosis (ACH), caused by Hepatozoon americanum, is an emerging tick-borne disease of dogs. An indirect enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) that should facilitate diagnosis of infection and study of the epidemiology of ACH has been developed using H. americanum sporozoites as antigen. Efficacy of the new test as a diagnostic tool was compared with that of skeletal muscle biopsy, the current gold standard for confirming H. americanum infection. Results show that the test is sensitive (93%) and specific (96%) and that it is as reliable as histopathologic examination of skeletal muscle for detecting infection. The ELISA would be suitable as a routine laboratory test for diagnosis of ACH.  (+info)

On the current existence of a coccidial line of development in the malaria parasites: a theory. (7/87)

Most opinion favors the origin of the malaria parasites from a coccidial ancestor. It is assumed that whatever the process through which the coccidia differentiated into a Plasmodium this phenomenon very probably occurred millions of year ago, and during that differentiation process the original coccidia vanished. Therefore it has never been repeated. At the light of some experiments the existence, at the present time, of a coccidial cycle of development in the malaria parasites, is proposed. The connection routes and mechanisms through which the malaria parasite changes to a coccidial life, and the routes in reverse are exposed. Transmission of the malaria-coccidial forms is suggested.  (+info)

Parasitology: United Kingdom National Quality Assessment Scheme. (8/87)

AIMS: To assess the results from parasitology laboratories taking part in a quality assessment scheme between 1986 and 1991; and to compare performance with repeat specimens. METHODS: Quality assessment of blood parasitology, including tissue parasites (n = 444; 358 UK, 86 overseas), and faecal parasitology, including extra-intestinal parasites (n = 205; 141 UK, 64 overseas), was performed. RESULTS: Overall, the standard of performance was poor. A questionnaire distributed to participants showed that a wide range of methods was used, some of which were considered inadequate to achieve reliable results. Teaching material was distributed to participants from time to time in an attempt to improve standards. CONCLUSIONS: Since the closure of the IMLS fellowship course in 1972, fewer opportunities for specialised training in parasitology are available: more training is needed. Poor performance in the detection of malarial parasites is mainly attributable to incorrect speciation, misidentification, and lack of equipment such as an eyepiece graticule.  (+info)

OMG!!! I will try and keep this as short as i can, Peanut my 4 month old conti had runny poo on tuesday morning so tuesday afternoon i whisked her off to see the vet, the vet decided it was one of two things 1- food intolerance 2- coccidia..... so dropped off some poo samples on wednesday and it turns out she showed positive for coccidia!!!! apart from one morning of two bits of runny poo, the rest where normal,there are no other signs!! shes up to weight, in no pain, eating me out of house
While coccidia can infect a wide variety of animals, including humans, birds and livestock, they are usually species-specific. One well-known exception is toxoplasmosis caused by Toxoplasma gondii: humans may become infected with this parasite while handling infected pets, especially cats, or their feces.. In the past, diagnosis of coccidian infections relied on fecal float, a technique which is relatively insensitive and not very precise. However, molecular detection by polymerase chain reaction is rapid, highly sensitive and highly specific (Lalonde and Gajadhar, 2011 ...

What are the symptoms?. In cats, it causes diarrhea. The stool is often highly liquid in consistency. You may also see blood in the stool, as they cause damage to the intestines. The cat may get dehydrated as a result of the diarrhea.. Is it serious?. Yes - a cat will get dehydrated from the diarrhea and may lose blood. It makes the pet very ill and susceptible to other infections, and sometimes they die if they get sick from something else at the same time. You need to take the pet to the vet, because it is easily treatable, but it can take a week for them to get over it. What is the treatment? There are a couple of treatments. Antibiotics are often used, as well as coccidiostats, which are medicines designed to help the cats immune system fight back specifically against coccidia. Keeping the cat hydrated is also very important. Albon is one of the most commonly used drugs against it. Is it contagious to other pets or to people?. Both dogs and cats can get the same kind of coccidia - but ...
What Is a Fecal Smear?. A fecal smear (sometimes called a direct fecal smear) is a diagnostic test that helps identify possible causes of diarrhea in a cat or dog. It is generally conducted in combination with a fecal flotation test, which is used to screen for intestinal parasite eggs.. With a direct fecal smear, a thin film of feces is examined under a microscope for evidence of Giardia, a protozoan parasite that can cause diarrhea. A fecal smear can also be used to identify cellular abnormalities, bacterial or fungal organisms, and in some cases, parasite eggs.. How Is the Test Performed?. The key to a good fecal smear is to start with as fresh a sample as possible. Since Giardia is identified by observing the organism swimming across the slide, a direct fecal smear should be examined within 30 minutes of collection, before the organisms die or disappear.. If you are unable to obtain a fresh sample, your veterinarian can usually retrieve a specimen with a gloved finger or an instrument called ...
There are a couple of sulfur medications and other drugs that can kill the coccidia parasite in young puppies. But we like to suggest an alternative medication in place of drugs. And in this case, COTTAGE CHEESE is handy in keeping the parasite away! Cottage cheese result to a change in pH level of the intestines making it unfavorable for the coccidia parasite.. This works perfectly and poses no side effects as it is common with sulfur drugs. Young puppies weighing at most 10 pounds should be given half level spoonful (spoon used for coffee/cereal) twice every day, morning and evening. Doing this repeatedly for seven days will keep the parasite away. For older dogs weighing 15 to 20 pounds, provide them with a spoonful in the morning and evening together with meals. Doing this for ten days is enough to kill the parasite.. For dogs weighing 20 to 30 pounds, two spoonfuls twice a day for ten days is enough. But generally, any milk product in large amounts is not good for your dog as it can result ...
The development of the intestine and early establishment of commensal bacteria is important for rapid growth and enteric disease resistance of the modern broiler. Three studies measured the impact of yeast derivatives in diets of broilers. The objective of the first study was to determine if yeast products alone or in combination effected performance or gut morphology of broilers during a mild coccidia challenge. Day-old Cobb 500 chicks were placed in floor pens on litter seeded with coccidia and fed diets with or without yeast products. The objectives of the second and third studies were to 1) evaluate the effect of feeding cecal droppings collected from heavy (HW) or low weight (LW) broilers on performance and 2) to determine if dietary supplementation with yeast derivatives would effect growth and gut morphology in broilers fed the cecal droppings from HW or LW populations. Cobb 500 chicks were divided into two groups (HW or LW microflora; n=1400/group) and given access to the cecal droppings ...

Coccidiosis is a parasitic disease of the intestinal tract of animals caused by coccidian protozoa. The disease spreads from one animal to another by contact with infected feces or ingestion of infected tissue. Diarrhea, which may become bloody in severe cases, is the primary symptom. Most animals infected with coccidia are asymptomatic, but young or immunocompromised animals may suffer severe symptoms and death. While coccidia can infect a wide variety of animals, including humans, birds, and livestock, they are usually species-specific. One well-known exception is toxoplasmosis caused by Toxoplasma gondii. Humans may first encounter coccidia when they acquire a puppy or kitten that is infected. Other than T. gondii, the infectious organisms are canine and feline-specific and are not contagious to humans, unlike the zoonotic diseases. Puppies are frequently infected with coccidia from the feces of their mother, and are more likely to develop coccidiosis due to their undeveloped immune systems. ...

Hepatozoon garnhami n. comb. was redescribed from Schokari sand snakes (Psammophis schokari) collected from Riyadh city in Saudi Arabia. Gametocytes were found in the peripheral blood of 2 of 15 snakes examined. Based on the similar morphological and morphometric characteristics, the same host and a similar host habitat environment, it can be concluded for the first time that the present species is conspecific with Haemogregarina garnhami previously reported from Psammophis shokari aegyptius. To further characterize this parasite, the partial 18S rRNA gene was amplified and sequenced. The sequence analysis also showed that Haemogregarina garnhami should be reassigned into the genus Hepatozoon as Hepatozoon garnhami which has 99.5% (859/863 bp) sequence similarity to Hepatozoon ayorgbor, infecting the erythrocytes of Python regius in Ghana. Phylogenetic analysis showed that H. garnhami formed a mixed clade with Hepatozoon spp. from geckos, snakes and rodents and ophidian Hepatozoon spp. did not ...

To further back up our assumptions based on our own findings, there was one study of pathogen-related diarrhea 1 that showed 68% of tested shelter dogs with diarrhea were positive for giardia and 15% for coccidia. Of shelter cats with diarrhea, 11% tested positive for coccidia, but the majority tested negative for all viral and protozoal pathogens.. This study did not test for parasites such as roundworms, hookworms or whipworms which are very common in young animals, and even with negative fecal examinations and deworming, they should be considered highly possible to be present.. Statistical analysis of the causes of diarrhea is important because it shapes how a shelter can treat the group in the most efficient and cost effective way possible. If a large majority of the animals who have diarrhea are likely to be suffering from the same cause, then that treatment should be the first line of defense against diarrhea in all dogs and cats for the sake of efficiency and lifesaving.

Over the last two weeks or so, the weather has finally become good and grass growth rates are on the rise. This, in turn, has seen the majority of farmers let their ewes and lambs out to pasture and take their minds off what has been a terrible February and most of March in terms of weather. However, despite the good weather, two parasites known as coccidia and Nematodirus can cause problems for young lambs at this time of the year. These parasites can affect lambs at a similar age and stage of the year and can have serious health implications - in some cases leading to death - in lambs ...
It took a while to get the diagnosis (they were suffering from both tapeworms and coccidia). While we awaited the results of the lab tests, Batcat gave up eating at one point and had to have fluids injected and be syringe fed every few hours, and all four kittens suffered from such severe diarrhea that they were covered in poop all the time and needed to be bathed several times each day. We started having kitten cleaning parties, with various friends coming over to help with washing and drying (kittens can become dangerously chilled after a bath, so they need to be dried and warmed thoroughly afterward).. The kittens were becoming quite dehydrated and increasingly weak from the diarrhea, even though they were eating and drinking a lot and we were adding water to their food. Kittens can go downhill very fast due to a variety of health issues. Fortunately, once we had the diagnosis, they were prescribed medications that sorted the problems out within 48 hours, and the group were soon on the mend, ...

Once thought to be rare and host specific, Cryptosporidia is now believed to be one of the top three diarrheal causing pathogens in the world. Cryptosporidia muris was recognized in 1907 by E. E. Tyzer. Since then twenty (20) species of Cryptosporidium have been discovered and named although recently sixteen (16) of those twenty (20) have come under speculation due to recent cross-transmission studies. Cryptosporidia is a protozoan parasite which lives in the intestines and respiratory epitheliums of many types of animals including mammals, birds and reptiles. The disease caused by Cryptosporidia is known as Cryptosporidiosis. Cryptosporidia is found all over the world and is transmitted via fecal oral contact. Usually this is due to water contaminated by animal feces. Infected calves excrete up to 10 billion Cryptosporidium oocysts (infectious stage) per day. The infectious dose in humans is only 10-100. However, contaminated food or direct contact with feces can also cause infection ...
Oocysts or immature coccidia are passed in the stool of an infected cat. They lie in the environment and eventually sporulate and mature into a more developed oocyst that can re-infect the cat. Other cats, dogs, or mice may also become infected. This process can occur in as little as six hours, but it usually takes seven to ten days. If the sporulated oocysts are swallowed, they mature in the cats intestine to complete the life cycle. If a mouse should swallow the oocysts, a cat may become infected by eating the infected mouse.. Kittens are commonly diagnosed with coccidiosis. A kitten is not born with coccidia. After birth, kittens are frequently exposed to the mothers feces. If the mother is shedding the infective cysts in her feces, her babies can ingest them during nursing. Since young kittens(less than six months of age) have no immunity to coccidia, the organisms reproduce in great numbers and may cause serious consequences.. It takes about thirteen days for illness to develop after the ...
After hours upon hours of reading, discussions with other chicken keepers, and experiments and experiences with my own chickens, it has come to be my opinion that back yard chicken keepers make a huge mistake when they buy into the idea that you can prevent coccidiosis by keeping an immaculate coop/brooder. Any chicken kept in any natural or sort-of natural situation, in which it is exposed to the soil, must develop resistance to the oocysts that cause coccidiosis. It can do this gradually, by picking up a little at a time from an early age, or it can get really sick all at once at a later age, and have to be medicated, or possibly die. As a resident of hot and humid East Texas (a fantastic breeding ground for coccidia oocysts), i have had great success in preventing outbreaks of coccidiosis by simply exposing my chicks to soil and adult feces as early as possible and consistently. ...
Specific pathogen-free domestic cats were fed with tissue cysts containing Toxoplasma gondii. In two infected cats large numbers of oocysts were produced in the faeces; no oocysts were observed in the faeces of the uninfected control cat. Five days after the feeding of the toxoplasms profuse schizogonic and gametogonic stages were observed in the epithelial cells of the small intestine of one infected cat. A single schizont was observed in an intestinal epithelial cell of a second cat six days after being fed the tissue cysts. There was no evidence of schizogony or gametogony in the uninfected control cat. The stages observed in the intestinal epithelium are identical with those of the well-known endogenous cycles of coccidian parasites. The appearance of these stages, together with the nature of the oocyst, indicates that T. gondii is a coccidian parasite closely related to the genus Isospora.. ...
Layer pullets suffering outbreaks at 7-20 weeks of age may suffer mortality, loss of uniformity and decreased egg-laying potential.. Infections with mid-intestinal species of coccidia is a major predisposing factor for Clostridium sp. infection. Colonization of small intestine by Eimeria sp. may lead to intestinal mucosal damage which mat then, in turn, provide natural substrates (plasma proteins) required for Clostridium sp. proliferation.. E.necatrix along with E.tenella are the most pathogenic of the chicken coccidia. Droppings of infected birds often contain blood, fluid and mucus. Some birds may show ruffled feathers.. ...
Cryptosporidia are small coccidian parasites that infect the mucosal epithelia of a variety of vertebrate hosts, including humans, affecting the health, survival, and economic development of millions of people and animals worldwide. Human infection is mainly caused by two species: (1) Cryptosporidium parvum-also prevalent in young livestock; can be transmitted from animals to humans (zoonotic transmission, particularly important in children), from person to person (urban cycle, due to faecal-oral spread), through contamination of public drinking-water supplies (which can produce massive outbreaks) or food (prepared by a sick food handler), and nosocomially. (2) ...

A relationship has been shown between hemoparasites and body condition during the breeding season. I investigated this relationship during the migration season in the same owl species as above. Blood smears were made and hemoparasites counted per 200 white blood cells. For northern saw-whet owls in 1999, prevalence was 53% (n = 30). In year 2000, northern saw-whet owls, prevalence was 47% (n = 70). In year 1999, flammulated owls had a prevalence of 44% (n = 16). In 2000 prevalence was 33% (n =6). Three genera of hemoparasites were found in both owl species: Haemoproteus spp., Leucocytozoon spp., and Trypanosoma spp. Northern saw-whet owls were primarily infected with L. ziemanni, while flammulated owls were primarily infected with H. noctuae and H. syrnii. There was no detectable correlation between presence/absence of parasites and body condition index in flammulated owls.. Traditionally, northern saw-whet owls are sexed in the field using a morphometric chart that was created from a ...

The earliest recorded case of coccidioidomycosis was documented in Argentina in 1892, when a soldier was diagnosed with what was first thought to be an infection of coccidia - parasitic protozoans, like cryptosporidium and toxoplasma, that infect the intestines of animals, including chickens, cows, dogs and cats. The soldier lived with the disease for 11 years, during which time his doctors realized it was not caused by a protozoa but by a fungus. The name, however, stuck ...
Potential impact on humans: Zero, because the coccidia species found in dogs, as well as in cats, does not infect humans.. As indicated, both you and your dog could be targeted by one or more parasites in your lifetimes. But fear not. A one-two-three punch could knock this dog and human health problem out cold.. Keeping It Clean Staying clean is the first line of attack for preventing most internal parasite infestations. Be sure to clean up after your dog as soon as you can. Then, wash your hands thoroughly with soap and warm water after such cleanups in order to prevent possible parasite spreads to other dogs, animals and humans. Children are at special risk, since they tend to not be as vigilant with the washing (little fingers have a tendency to wind up in little mouths). As a result, keep kids away from any pets that may be infected. Teach them the link between illness and hand-dirtiness. Maybe remind them of their last tummy ache, pointing out that something similar could happen if they ...

This is a different situation unfortunately. I did take my cage outside and power washed it which helped a lot. I do not have any other animals. My friend came over and she said that she noticed the smell for the first time since ive have them. Even my grandchildren were mentioning it as well. Maybe its a mixture of both? I do think that their stools are especially smelly because when i clean the cage floor and wipe it some of the stools are soft and the smell is bad enough to make me gage. I never had an issue with them peeing and pooping on me but i do now. I have had my gliders for more then 4 years and this is the first time that i have actually noticed their smell too.

Hepatozoon canis is an apicomplexan parasite of dogs, which is known to become infected by ingesting Rhipicephalus sanguineus adult ticks. To investigate the possibility of H. canis transovarial and transstadial transmission from larvae to nymphs, engorged adult female ticks were collected from a private animal shelter in southern Italy, where H. canis infection is highly prevalent. Female ticks (n=35) and egg batches were tested by PCR for H. canis. All eggs examined were PCR-negative whereas 88.6% of females from the environment tested positive. Additionally, fed larvae (n=120) from a dog naturally infected by H. canis were dissected at different time points post collection (i.e. 0, 10, 20 and 30 days). Molted nymphs dissected at 20 days post collection revealed immature oocysts displaying an amorphous central structure in 50% of the specimens, and oocysts containing sporocysts with sporozoites were found in 53.3% of the nymphs dissected at 30 days post collection. This study demonstrates that ...
Rapid identification of the two major species of Cryptosporidium associated with human infections, Cryptosporidium hominis and Cryptosporidium parvum, is important for investigating outbreaks of cryptosporidiosis. This study reports the development and validation of a real-time PCR TaqMan procedure for detection of Cryptosporidium species and identification of C. hominis and C. parvum in stool specimens. This procedure comprised a generic TaqMan assay targeting the 18S rRNA for sensitive detection of Cryptosporidium species, as well as two other TaqMan assays for identification of C. hominis and C. parvum. The generic Cryptosporidium species assay can be duplexed with the C. parvum-specific assay. The generic Cryptosporidium species assay was able to detect ten Cryptosporidium species and did not cross-react with a panel of ten other protozoan parasites. The generic Cryptosporidium species assay could detect 1-10 oocysts in a 300 μl stool specimen, whilst each of the species-specific TaqMan assays had

This report aims to propose a new species of Cryptosporidium isolated from reptiles. Cryptosporidium spp. are apicomplexan parasites of a wide range of animals. Due to their biology, ecology and epidemiology these protozoa are globally distributed. The vertebrate hosts become infected through host-to-host contact or through ingestion of contaminated food or water [1, 2]. The taxonomy of Cryptosporidium has been debated and several doubts and uncertainties still exist. For a long time the only recognized species have been Cryptosporidium parvum and Cryptosporidium muris. However, numerous other isolates were present in animals but described only in the last decades [3]. The difficulties in addressing Cryptosporidium taxonomy and in delineating new species mainly rely on the inability to morphologically discriminate the biological stages and on the difficulties in establishing monospecific experimental infections [3]. With the advent of nucleic acid-based techniques and sequencing, important ...

In 1993, almost 25% of the residents of Milwaukee, Wisconsin came down with severe stomach cramps, fever, and diarrhea. Over 100, mostly elderly or immunocompromised residents, died. The cause? The most common water-borne disease in the developed world: Cryptosporidium. Cryptosporidium parvum is one of many species of this group of apicomplexan parasites, distant relatives to those that cause malaria and toxoplasmosis. Water supplies may be tainted with the oocysts of these parasites, which are then consumed by people. In the small intestine, the parasites attach to the villi and begin to asexually divide. Eventually they will produce gametocytes - macrogametocytes are female, microgametocytes are male. These stages fuse and then produce two types of zygotes. Some have thin walls only - these serve to keep the infection going in the same host. Others, though, develop thicker walls and are released into the environment to infect new hosts. There isnt a very good treatment for those that become ...

Cryptosporidium parvum is a waterborne coccidian protozoan parasite known to infect humans, resulting in an illness known as cryptosporidiosis. The widely used USEPA method 1622 to detect Cryptosporidium is time consuming, and unable to provide the information on oocysts viability and species. In order to develop a fast detection method for viable C. parvum oocysts, a 0.2 μm pore size hollow fiber membrane and 0.45 μm pore size disc membrane were used to filter tap water. Modified Immunomagnetic separation (IMS) purification was followed, and the IMS condition was optimized to shorten the purification time. Finally, fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) and FITC-conjugated monoclonal antibody (FMAb) staining were combined to detect viable oocysts, and results indicated that the viable oocysts detection by FISH/FMAb can be achieved in 20 min. The total viable oocysts detection time can be shortened to less than 1.5 h without affecting oocysts recovery. © IWA Publishing 2011 ...
Wild Malayan red jungle fowl faecal samples were examined to determine the prevalence and species of Eimeria from their natural habitat. The birds possessed at least five coccidial species, namely Eimeria mitis, E. acervulina var. diminuta, E. praecox var. ceylonensis, E. maxima var. indentata and an unidentified Eimeria species. No attempt was made to name this unidentified species as information on other stages was lacking. Intensively reared Malayan red jungle fowl chicks were used to study the pattern of coccidial infections. The chicks suffered from coccidiosis caused by E. tenella, E. necatrix and E. maxima. The mean prepatency period in these chicks was 9 days; their peak oocyst counts ranged from 136, 364 to 591, 200 oocysts per gram of faeces. Eimeria tenella was the most prominent pathogenic species encountered. Kamovskys fixative and McNamaras Giemsa stain were used for the first time for processing mucosal tissue samples for the study of cellular response to E. tenella. Two groups ...
Over the course of six months wild filth flies were collected from traps left for 7-10 days in a barn with or without a calf shedding Cryptosporidium parvum Genotype 2 oocysts in diarrheic feces. The oocysts of C. parvum transported on the flies' exoskeletons and eluted from their droplets left on visited surfaces were infectious for mice. The mean number of oocysts carried by a fly varied from 4 to 131, and the total oocyst number per collection varied from 56 to approximately 4.56 x 10(3). Fly abundance and intensity of mechanical transmission of infectious C. parvum oocysts were positively correlated, and both increased significantly when an infected calf was in the barn. Molecular data showed that the oocysts shed by infected calves were carried by flies for at least 3 weeks. Filth flies can acquire infectious C. parvum oocysts from unsanitary sites, deposit them on visited surfaces, and therefore may be involved in human or animal cryptosporidiosis.
In experiment 1, fecal oocyst counts declined more rapidly in amprolium-treated lambs following weaning. Fecal scores were higher in the control lambs compared with the SL-fed lambs, suggesting more signs of coccidiosis in control lambs. In experiment 2, oocyst counts were similar initially, but were reduced in SL-fed lambs by weaning and remained lower thereafter. Dag and fecal scores were similar before weaning, but lower in SL-fed lambs by weaning and remained lower thereafter. No SL lambs required treatment for coccidiosis, whereas 33% of control lambs required treatment. In experiment 3, oocyst counts were reduced in SL compared with control fed lambs ...
Fifty cranes, consisting of 46 sandhill (Grus canadensis) and four whooping cranes (Grus americana), were studied. Eighteen sandhill cranes and the four whooping cranes were naturally infected with disseminated visceral coccidiosis (DVC). The remaining sandhill cranes were chicks experimentally infected with oocysts of Eimeria reichenowi and/or E. gruis; five chicks served as controls. There were no clinical signs attributed to respiratory infection. Necropsy of naturally infected adult birds revealed nodules in many organs, including the lung, air sacs, trachea and nares. Artificially infected sandhill cranes and the whooping crane chicks that died from DVC had congestion and consolidated areas in the lung with frothy fluid in the airways. Grossly visible nodules were observed from 10 days postinoculation. Granulomatous pneumonia and tracheitis were observed with light microscopy. Lesions were associated with merogonic and gametogonic stages of eimerian coccidia. Granulomas and granulomatous foci

Status. The initial version of the C. muris WGS sequence has been deposited at GenBank.. Background. The genus Cryptosporidium, a group of single-celled eukaryotic organisms in the phylum Apicomplexa, comprises an unknown number of species infecting numerous vertebrate species. It includes two groups of parasites that have adapted to different environments in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract: the small intestine/colon, where the majority of species multiply, and the stomach, which only a few species are able to infect. Cryptosporidium species are significant sources of gastrointestinal infection worldwide. Particularly in underdeveloped nations, cryptosporidiosis is common in children, where it is frequently associated with persistent diarrhea, malnutrition and stunted growth (Guerrant 1997). In immune compromised individuals, persistent infection with Cryptosporidium can lead to wasting and is often fatal. Effective drugs or vaccines against this infection are not available (Tzipori 1998). The ...

The Ziehl-Neelsen stain, also known as the acid-fast stain, was first described by two German doctors; Franz Ziehl (1859 to 1926), a bacteriologist and Friedrich Neelsen (1854 to 1894), a pathologist [1].It is a special bacteriological stain used to identify acid-fast Mycobacteria. The preparation of Ziehl-Neelsen slides require several procedures and the slide should be examined under oil immersion by using the 100X magnification. There are some factors that may degrade the image quality such as under expose, over expose, under stain and thick samples. Thus, the images should be enhanced to improve the image quality in term of contrast and intensity. This paper proposes a contrast enhancement technique based on bright stretching and dark stretching algorithms for color images. Although the adopted image processing technique is quite simple, the results indicate that our method may have some potential to be used for improving the quality of Ziehl-Neelsen slide images ...

Cryptosporidium species causes asymptomatic or mild to severe gastrointestinal disease in their broad range of host species. These host species include humans, domestic and wild animals worldwide. The importance of cryptosporidiosis in ruminants has been emphasised in recent years for not only mortality, delayed growth and economic losses in the farm but also zoonotic importance. So more than 200 substances have been tested against cryptosporidiosis, but none of them was able to eliminate the infection consistently. This article will focus on therapeutic interventions in neonatal ruminants against cryptosporidiosis including perspectives for new drugs.
Researchers at the University of Georgia have developed new tools to study and genetically manipulate cryptosporidium, a microscopic parasite that causes the diarrheal disease cryptosporidiosis. Their discoveries, published in the journal Nature, will ultimately help researchers in academia and industry find new treatments and vaccines for cryptosporidium, which is a major cause of disease and death in children under two years old.
After your puppy perks up, the little tyke looks like everythings all better. Do not be fooled. Do you think you could go from a coma, or seizures, when you weigh 2 pounds, you have almost no body fat, and you probably have, or had intestinal parasites within the past week, and you will just bounce back to normal with no problems?. Without hospitalization, most hypoglycemic puppies will relapse in the first 24 hours. Now youre in a bind. If you have a tiny puppy, you probably spent every penny you had on the tyke. Now you are facing intravenous fluids with a slow IV dextrose drip, maybe heat and oxygen therapy, and tons of specialized nursing care.. Your hypoglycemia puppy may have complicating infections, like pneumonia, kennel cough, coccidia, hookworms, or other illnesses. If you have the financial ability, let the veterinarian hospitalize your puppy, if your vet recommends that course of action.. If you do not have the money (it can be US$500-$1500, depending on the city, sickness, etc), ...

So why this one dog? There were many other dogs in the shelter - in their outdoor kennels and others running around. There was something about her eyes - was it sadness, was it wisdom, was it acceptance? There was something about the way she looked at me, something about the way her piercing eyes looked right through me. She has a story. She has a purpose. That "something" brought me back one month later to bring her into Pet Havens foster program. She arrived testing positive for heartworm, lymes disease and coccidia. We soon learn she has a pellet in one of her nipples, having survived a gunshot wound. She has no front teeth as she has ground it all down which, according to our vet, is probably her attempt to escape from a metal cage. Her rescuer, Karen Good of Red Lake Rosies Rescue says many of the pups she rescues have ground down teeth as they struggle to find food and eat dirt and gravel in search of food. Whatever the case, Ahnungs first 4 years were hard and full of struggles. Her ...

Cryptosporidium parvum, a small single-celled parasite, is a leading cause of scour in in young calves between one and four weeks of age, Animal Health Ireland (AHI) says.
In a study conducted to investigate the causes of the death of new born lambs due to diarrhoea 237 cases were studied. In 16 of these lambs necropsied at four to 10 days old organisms considered to be Cryptosporidia at various stages of its life-cycl
To compare the diagnostic sensitivity and specificity of seven Cryptosporidium diagnostic assays used in the UK, results from 259 stool samples from patients with acute gastrointestinal symptoms were compared against a nominated gold standard (real-time PCR and oocyst detection). Of the 152 true positives, 80 were Cryptosporidium hominis, 68 Cryptosporidium parvum, two Cryptosporidium felis, one Cryptosporidium ubiquitum and one Cryptosporidium meleagridis. The Cryptosporidium spp. diagnostic sensitivities of three Cryptosporidium and Giardia combination enzyme immunoassays (EIA) coupled with confirmation of positive reactions were 91.4-93.4 %, whilst the sensitivity of auramine phenol microscopy was 92.1 % and that of immunofluorescence microscopy (IFM) was 97.4 %, all with overlapping 95 % confidence intervals. However, IFM was significantly more sensitive (P = 0.01, paired test of proportions). The sensitivity of modified Ziehl-Neelsen microscopy was 75.4 %, significantly lower than those for the
Swimming-pool associated outbreaks of cryptosporidiosis have been frequently reported in the UK and USA. Cryptosporidium oocysts could sometimes be detected in the pool water or the filter backwash water in cases where the source of the outbreak was confirmed. The occurrence of Cryptosporidium and Giardia in swimming pools in the Netherlands was studied at five locations. The backwash water from seven pool filters (from toddler pools, hot whirlpools and recreational and learner pools with an elevated water temperature) was analysed for the presence of Cryptosporidium oocysts and Giardia cysts for a period of one year. Of the total 153 samples of filter backwash water analysed, 18 (11.8 %) were found positive for either Cryptosporidium (4.6 %), Giardia (5.9 %) or both (1.3 %). The presence of Cryptosporidium oocysts and Giardia cysts in filter backwash water indicates previous presence of these parasites in the pool water. Oocysts and cysts were detected in the water of one toddler pool and one ...
Microcentrifuge tubes containing 8 x 10(6) purified oocysts of Cryptosporidium parvum suspended in 400 microliters of deionized water were stored at 5 degrees C for 168 h or frozen at -10, -15, -20, and -70 degrees C for 1 h to 168 h and then thawed at room temperature (21 degrees C). Fifty microliters containing 10(6) oocysts was administered to each of five to seven neonatal BALB/c mice by gastric intubation. Segments of ileum, cecum, and colon were taken for histology from each mouse 72 or 96 h later. Freeze-thawed oocysts were considered viable and infectious only when developmental-stage C. parvum organisms were found microscopically in the tissue sections. Developmental-stage parasites were not found in tissues from any mice that received oocysts frozen at -70 degrees C for 1, 8, or 24 h. All mice that received oocysts frozen at -20 degrees C for 1, 3, and 5 h had developmental-stage C. parvum; one of 6 mice that received oocysts frozen at -20 degrees C for 8 h had a few ...
The coccidian genera that cause disease in humans include Cryptosporidium, Cyclospora, Isospora, Sarcocystis, and Toxoplasma. What was previously called Cryptosporidium parvum and was thought to be the primary Cryptosporidium species infecting humans is now classified as two separate species, C. parvum (mammals, including humans) and Cryptosporidium hominis (primarily humans). Evidence obtained from excystation experiments indicates that the oocyst contains two sporocysts, each containing two sporozoites, a pattern which places these organisms in the coccidian genus Cyclospora. Electron microscopy (EM) confirmed the presence of characteristic organelles for coccidian organisms of the phylum Apicomplexa. Phylogenetic studies have confirmed that the microsporidia evolved from the fungi, being most closely related to the zygomycetes. Microsporidia have extremely small genomes, very similar to those seen in bacteria. A variety of serologic tests have been used to detect immunoglobulin G (IgG) and IgM

Summary It appears evident that no proof exists that any species of Eimeria inhabits the human body as a parasite. Isospora has been reported to have been discovered in the feces of about 200 persons. Seventy-five per cent of these were found in British soldiers who served in the Eastern Mediterranean area during the World War. The rest of the cases, with few exceptions, were scattered throughout the World, in tropical and subtropical regions, and 96 per cent of all cases have occurred in males. Evidence is presented to support the name Isospora hominis Fantham 1917 as the name of the species which occurs in man. It is recognized, however, that the Isosporae, which are found in dogs and cats, are not adequately separated from this species. A reservoir host seems necessary to explain the low incidence of the disease in man, which is evidently much below 0.1 per cent, even in areas in which the parasite has been demonstrated. This conclusion is strengthened by the self-limited nature of the disease in man
