Epidemic and endemic seroprevalence of antibodies to Cryptosporidium and Giardia in residents of three communities with different drinking water supplies. (1/376)

This study was carried out to compare cryptosporidiosis and giardiasis seroprevalence rates in residents of three communities. Community (Com 1) uses drinking water from deep wells, community 2 (Com 2) uses surface water from a protected watershed, and community 3 (Com 3) uses surface water frequently containing Cryptosporidium oocysts and Giardia cysts. Unfiltered drinking water from each community was collected at the tap and tested for Cryptosporidium oocysts and Giardia cysts during the 12 months in which sera were collected for testing. No oocysts or cysts were detected in the water from the Com 1 deep wells; oocysts and cysts were detected intermittently in the drinking water from the other two communities. A waterborne outbreak of cryptosporidiosis occurred in a municipality adjacent to Com 3 six months into this 12-month study. Sera from residents of each of the communities were collected proportionately by month and by population size. Coded sera were tested for IgG to Cryptosporidium using a previously developed Western blotting method. The presence or absence of bands at 15-17 kD and/or 27 kD was recorded for the 1,944 sera tested. Definite bands at 15-17 kD and/or 27 kD were detected in 981 (50.5%) of the sera. A total of 33.2% of sera from Com 1 (community using deep wells) were positive using the same criteria compared with 53.5% (Com 2) and 52.5% (Com 3) of sera from the two communities using surface drinking water. Both bands (15-17 kD plus 27 kD) were detected in 582 sera (29.9%) from the three communities: 14.1% of sera from Com 1 compared with 32.7% from Com 2 and 31.5% from Com 3. These findings are consistent with a lower risk of exposure to Cryptosporidium from drinking water obtained from deep well sources. However, analysis of results by calendar quarter showed a significant (P < 0.001) increase in the number of Com 3 positive sera (compared with Com 1) following the waterborne outbreak. Without this outbreak-related observation, a significant overall difference in seropositivity would not have been seen. We also observed that in sera from the community affected by the outbreak, the presence on immunoblots of both Cryptosporidium bands appeared to be the best indicator of recent infection. Seroprevalence rates using an ELISA to detect IgG to Giardia were estimated using the same sera. Overall 30.3% (590 of 1,944) of sera were positive by the ELISA. A total of 19.1% of sera from Com 1, 34.7% from Com 2 and 16.0% from Com 3 were seropositive. Rates for both Com 3 and Com 1 did not change significantly over time. In Com 2, rates decreased significantly (P < 0.001) during the last half of the study period (third and fourth calendar quarters). The reasons for the decrease in seroprevalence in Com 2 sera are presently not known. These studies show intriguing associations between seroprevalence, outbreak-related laboratory serologic data, and patterns of parasite contamination of drinking water. Further studies are required to validate the serologic approach to risk assessment of waterborne parasitic infections at a community level.  (+info)

Influence of refrigeration and formalin on the floatability of Giardia duodenalis cysts. (2/376)

Giardia duodenalis cysts obtained from fresh fecal samples, fecal samples kept under refrigeration and fecal samples treated with formalin were studied as to their floatability on sucrose solutions with the following specific gravities: 1,040 kg/m3; 1,050 kg/m3; 1, 060 kg/m3; 1,070 kg/m3; 1,080 kg/m3; 1,090 kg/m3; 1,100 kgm3; 1,150 kg/m3; 1,200 kg/m3; and 1,250 kg/m3, contained within counting-chambers 0.17 mm high. Cysts that floated on and those settled down as sediments were counted, and had their percentages estimated. Sucrose solutions of 1,200 kg/m3 specific gravity (the average specific gravity of diluting liquids employed in floatation techniques) caused to float 77.7%, 78.4% and 6.6% of the G. duodenalis cysts obtained, respectively, from fresh fecal samples, fecal samples kept under refrigeration, and fecal samples treated with formalin. Cysts obtained both from fresh fecal samples and fecal samples kept under refrigeration presented similar results concerning floatability. It was observed, however, that the treatment of feces with formalin diminished the cysts floatability under the various specific gravities studied. This results should influence, the recommendations for transport and storage of fecal samples used for parasitological coproscopy.  (+info)

Molecular systematics of the parasitic protozoan Giardia intestinalis. (3/376)

The long-standing controversy regarding whether Giardia intestinalis is a single species prevalent in both human and animal hosts or a species complex consisting of morphologically similar organisms that differ in host range and other biotypic characteristics is an issue with important medical, veterinary, and environmental management implications. In the past decade, highly distinct genotypes (some apparently confined to particular host groups) have been identified by genetic analysis of samples isolated from different host species. The aim of this study was to undertake a phylogenetic analysis of G. intestinalis that were representative of all known major genetic groups and compare them with other Giardia species, viz. G. ardeae, G. muris, and G. microti. Segments from four "housekeeping" genes (specifying glutamate dehydrogenase, triose phosphate isomerase, elongation factor 1 alpha, and 18S ribosomal RNA) were examined by analysis of 0.48-0.69-kb nucleotide sequences determined from DNA amplified in polymerase chain reactions from each locus. In addition, isolates were compared by allozymic analysis of electrophoretic data obtained for 21 enzymes representing 23 gene loci. The results obtained from these independent techniques and different loci were essentially congruous. Analyses using G. ardeae and/or G. muris as outgroups supported the monophyly of G. intestinalis and also showed that this species includes genotypes that represent at least seven deeply rooted lineages, herein designated assemblages A-G. Inclusion of G. microti in the analysis of 18S rRNA sequence data demonstrated the monophyly of Giardia with the same median body morphology but did not support the monophyly of G. intestinalis, instead placing G. microti within G. intestinalis. The findings support the hypothesis that G. intestinalis is a species complex and suggest that G. microti is a member of this complex.  (+info)

Immune response to Giardia duodenalis. (4/376)

The intestinal protozoan Giardia duodenalis is a widespread opportunistic parasite of humans and animals. This parasite inhabits the upper part of the small intestine and has a direct life cycle. After ingestion of cysts, which are the infective stage, the trophozoites emerge from the cysts in the duodenum and attach to the small intestinal mucosa of the host. Since the migration of trophozoites from the lumen of the intestine into surrounding tissues is an unusual occurrence, the immune response to Giardia remains localized. The identification of antigens that play a role in acquired immunity has been difficult because of the occurrence of antigenic variation and because, Giardia being an ubiquitous organism, it is possible that the antigenic profiles of isolates from different geographic areas will vary. Innate-immunity mechanisms play a role in the control and/or severity of the infection. Both humoral and cell-mediated immune responses play a role in acquired immunity, but the mechanisms involved are unknown. A variety of serological assays have been used to detect circulating antibodies in serum. Because of the biological characteristics of the parasite and the lack of suitable antigens, the sensitivity of serological assays remains poor. On the other hand, detection of antigens in feces of infected patients has met with success. Commercial kits are available, and they are reported to be more sensitive than microscopic examination for the detection of giardiasis on a single specimen.  (+info)

Influence of bacteria from the duodenal microbiota of patients with symptomatic giardiasis on the pathogenicity of Giardia duodenalis in gnotoxenic mice. (5/376)

Recent studies have shown that the intestinal microbiota is essential for the pathogenicity but not for the multiplication of Giardia duodenalis in the intestinal lumen. The microbial components responsible for this phenomenon are not known. Twenty-eight facultative and three strictly anaerobic micro-organisms were isolated from the dominant duodenal microbiota of five patients with symptomatic giardiasis. The bacterial combinations from each patient were associated with groups (GN) of germ-free mice. Five days after the association, when their faecal populations ranged from 10(7) to 10(9) cfu/g, all groups were inoculated intragastrically with 10(5) viable trophozoites of G. duodenalis strain BT6. Two groups of germ-free (GF) and conventional (CV1) mice were also infected. Gnotobiotic animals were killed 10 days after infection and GF and CV1 animals were killed 10, 20 and 30 days after infection. More marked pathological alterations were detected in CV1 mice when compared with GF animals. Gnotobiotic animals showed intermediate pathological alterations between CV1 and GF mice. The CV1 and GF groups became infected by day 3 and faecal cyst levels were similar in both groups throughout the experiment. Total and G. duodenalis-specific IgA levels in the intestinal fluid and G. duodenalis-specific IgM and IgG levels in the serum increased during the infection and were higher in CV1 animals at all times tested when compared with GF mice. The present results confirm the stimulatory activity of the intestinal microbiota on the pathogenicity of G. duodenalis, and some combinations of microbial components of the dominant duodenal ecosystem from patients with symptomatic giardiasis can partially develop this function. However, none of these combinations was able to stimulate the protozoan pathogenicity in the same manner as the entire intestinal microbiota.  (+info)

Effect of sample holding time on recovery of Cryptosporidium oocysts and Giardia cysts from water samples. (6/376)

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency methods for analysis of water for Cryptosporidium and Giardia stipulate maximum sample holding times which are not always practical to comply with. A spiking experiment indicated that holding times of up to 2 weeks had no significant effect on recovery of these parasites from 10-liter samples of raw water in plastic carboys.  (+info)

Stage-specific expression and targeting of cyst wall protein-green fluorescent protein chimeras in Giardia. (7/376)

In preparation for being shed into the environment as infectious cysts, trophozoites of Giardia spp. synthesize and deposit large amounts of extracellular matrix into a resistant extracellular cyst wall. Functional aspects of this developmentally regulated process were investigated by expressing a series of chimeric cyst wall protein 1 (CWP1)-green fluorescent protein (GFP) reporter proteins. It was demonstrated that a short 110 bp 5' flanking region of the CWP1 gene harbors all necessary cis-DNA elements for strictly encystation-specific expression of a reporter during in vitro encystation, whereas sequences in the 3' flanking region are involved in modulation of steady-state levels of its mRNA during encystation. Encysting Giardia expressing CWP1-GFP chimeras showed formation and maturation of labeled dense granule-like vesicles and subsequent incorporation of GFP-tagged protein into the cyst wall, dependent on which domains of CWP1 were included. The N-terminal domain of CWP1 was required for targeting GFP to regulated compartments of the secretory apparatus, whereas a central domain containing leucine-rich repeats mediated association of the chimera with the extracellular cyst wall. We show that analysis of protein transport using GFP-tagged molecules is feasible in an anaerobic organism and provides a useful tool for investigating the organization of primitive eukaryotic vesicular transport.  (+info)

Core histones of the amitochondriate protist, Giardia lamblia. (8/376)

Genes coding for the core histones H2a, H2b, H3, and H4 of Giardia lamblia were sequenced. A conserved organism- and gene-specific element, GRGCGCAGATTTVGG, was found upstream of the coding region in all core histone genes. The derived amino acid sequences of all four histones were similar to their homologs in other eukaryotes, although they were among the most divergent members of this protein family. Comparative protein structure modeling combined with energy evaluation of the resulting models indicated that the G. lamblia core histones individually and together can assume the same three-dimensional structures that were established by X-ray crystallography for Xenopus laevis histones and the nucleosome core particle. Since G. lamblia represents one of the earliest-diverging eukaryotes in many different molecular trees, the structure of its histones is potentially of relevance to understanding histone evolution. The G. lamblia proteins do not represent an intermediate stage between archaeal and eukaryotic histones.  (+info)

Elucidating the mechanism of its assembly is important for understanding many cell biological and medical processes as well as for tissue engineering and biotechnological approaches. In this work, conditions for the self-assembly of collagen type I molecules on a supporting surface were characterized. By applying hydrodynamic flow, collagen assembled into ultrathin (3 nm) highly anisotropic ribbon-like structures coating the entire support. We call these novel collagen structures microribbons. High-resolution atomic force microscopy topographs show that subunits of these microribbons are built by fibrillar structures. The smallest units of these fibrillar structures have cross-sections of 3 Ã- 5 nm, ...
Giardia duodenalis is an important intestinal protozoan in humans worldwide with high infection rates occurring in densely populated and low resource settings. The parasite has been recorded to cause diarrhea in children. This study was carried out to identify G. duodenalis assemblages and sub-assemblages in children presenting with diarrhea in Kenya. A total of 2112 faecal samples were collected from children aged ≤5 years and screened for the presence of Giardia cysts using microscopy. A total of 96 (4.5 %) samples were identified as Giardia positive samples and were genotyped using glutamate dehydrogenase (gdh), triose phosphate isomerase (tpi) and β-giardin loci. The three markers successfully genotyped 72 isolates and grouped 2 (1.4) isolates as Assemblage A, 64 (88.9) as Assemblage B and 7 (9.7 %) consisted of mixed infections with assemblage A and B.

It may be nasty but it isnt shy. Giardia is everywhere. Literally!. To put it simply, giardia is one of the many microorganisms that like to call the intestine home, and dont play nice.. For those who have a fair bit of knowledge about biology, giardia is a flagellated protozoan parasite. The Giardia genus is diverse, with multiple species categorized into three major morphological groups. They inhabit the intestines of many animals, from amphibians to humans.. In fact, giardia is the most common intestinal parasite found in humans, causing the common Travelers Diarrhea.. The specie referred to when discussing giardia in dog, cats, and humans is Giardia duodenalis. It is a specie complex, which means it has several subtypes, subspecies, strains, or genotypes (called assemblages).There are seven G duodenalis assemblages lettered A to G.. Assemblages C and D have distinct preference for dogs. F prefers cats. However, assemblages A and B dont have favorites and can take a spot in the ...

Canine Giardia. By Admin. What is giardia? It is a single cell parasite that lives in the intestine of dogs. Canine giardia is caused by a microorganism present in contaminated feces and bodies of water. Giardia in dogs is a common health problem. Symptoms of parasitic infection include dog diarrhea, vomiting, weight loss and lack of appetite. Some parasites can cause intestinal upset. Fecal samples can be examined for the presence of giardia, and a drug called Flagyl is commonly prescribed to treat it. Dogs with giardia do not always show symptoms. It can be especially fatal in puppies under six months of age.. The dog giardia vaccine is not recommended because it only prevents spreading of the disease through fecal matter and not the disease itself.. Dogs, cats and all animals can get this disease. It has the potential to infect humans too. They are too small to be seen by the naked eye. It is spread by feces of infected animals. Some dogs can be carriers and show no signs of the disease. ...
by Filip Tkaczyk - from the website wildernesscollege.com. Giardia is an infamous waterborne pathogen and learning how recognize giardia symptoms is an important wilderness skill. Found in wild and not-so-wild waters throughout the world, and is especially likely to show up in areas of poor sanitation.. Giardiasis, or giardia infection is also one of the most common waterborne infections in the USA. It is found in lakes, ponds, streams, and rivers. The speed of the flow of a water source does not limit the possibility of infection.. Giardia Transmission/Infection. Giardia transmission can occur in several ways. Generally, it is picked up by drinking from an unfiltered municipal or backcountry water source that is contaminated. Gairdia infection can also occur via transmission from food or person-to-person contact.. Infections usually span several weeks, usually clearing up by about 6 weeks. Sometimes, symptoms reoccur after initial infection. The impact can also be lasting and intestinal ...
These properties become of medical significance when they involve such characteristics as pathogenicity, antigenicity, drug resistance, and environmental survival. No one, however, has suggested the presence of Shigella endosymbionts as contributing to prolongation of diarrhea. flexneri plasmid is presently known to be involved in its invasion of HeLa cells (10). Rowbotham (18) has suggested that Acanthamoeba and Naegleria are possible natural hosts for Legionella; he suggests even more importantly that infected amoebae or vesicles containing bacteria could be the infective particle for Legionella infection of humans. We have also recently demonstrated that Giardia cysts, formed in vitro, were capable of undergoing excystation and were able to produce infection in an animal model (17). Therefore, Giardia cysts formed in vitro have fulfilled all of the criteria currently being used to measure cyst viability. The development of this in vitro model of the life cycle of Giardia should facilitate ...
Small subunit ribosomal DNA (SSU-rDNA), glutamate dehydrogenase (gdh), beta-giardin, triosephosphate isomerase (tpi), and elongation factor 1-alpha (ef1-alpha) genes are useful genetic markers for genotypic analysis of the intestinal protozoan, Giardia duodenalis (syn. G. lamblia, G. intestinalis), the cause of enteric disease in humans. To quantitatively compare the discriminatory power of these loci, 43 fecal samples were collected from central, northern and eastern Thailand and G. duodenalis specimens were analyzed using PCR-based genotyping and subcloning methods. Approximately equal prevalence of assemblage A (21) and B (22) were present among these populations. Analysis of Simpsons index and Wallace coefficient values from assemblage B isolates together with the data obtained from Gen Bank showed that the combination of two loci provides a higher discrimination power for subgenotyping G. duodenalis than using any single locus.. ...
It can be difficult to diagnose Giardia in dogs, because the protozoa are very, very small and they dont appear in every bowel movement. Your vet may need to perform multiple fecal examinations to diagnose Giardia. Vets use special procedures to identify Giardia. These procedures are the same as the ones used to diagnose hookworms and roundworms. These procedures kill trophozoites and can help make encysted protozoa easier to find. Your vet will mix some of your dogs stool with water and look at it under a microscope to search for trophozoites. Because of their flagella, trophozoites can be seen moving under a microscope. Cysts are often found in firm bowel movements, and can be isolated using a special solution. Your vet will then examine the solution under a microscope. Even interpreting the results of Giardia tests can be difficult, because Giardia is often present in the stools of uninfected dogs, and your dogs diarrhea symptoms may be caused by another disease entirely. Your vet will ...

Graham Clark- The few fingerprinting studies Ive seen on Giardia seemed somewhat inconclusive, and infectivity studies from humans to animals have been negative, in general, and animal-to-human challenges werent cleared by human use committees, I believe. My impression from the literature is that animal-human transmission of Giardia is probably very rare, relative to human-human transmission. Im also less certain that water contamination is the main route of transmission, based partly on the distribution of cases. Several authors have favored fecal contamination in day care and other setings. As the most common intestinal parasite, its surprising how little is firmly known about Giardia, especially the zoonosis question.

The taxonomy, life cycle patterns and zoonotic potential of Giardia infecting mammals and birds have been poorly understood and controversial for many years. The development of molecular tools for characterising isolates of Giardia directly from faeces or environmental samples has made an enormous contribution to resolving these issues. It is now clear that the G. duodenalis morphological group is a species complex comprising a series of what appear to be largely host-adapted species, and at least two zoonotic species for which humans are the major host, but which are also capable of infecting other mammals. It is proposed that this new information be reflected in the redesignation of several species of Giardia described previously. The molecular epidemiological tools that are now available need to be applied in different endemic foci of Giardia transmission, as well as in outbreak situations, in order to understand better the frequency of zoonotic transmission as well as to develop more ...
Giardia DNA was detected in 77 faecal DNA samples. Similar to the results for Cryptosporidium, G. duodenalis was also found in calves on all six farms, with an average prevalence of 22.6% (Table 1). This number was consistent with previous studies of pre- and post-weaned calves from other cities/provinces of China [25, 55] as well as other countries (cf. [12]). The prevalence of Giardia varied from farm to farm in Hubei Province. Farm Chezhan had the highest percentage (60.0%; 12 of 20) of infected calves, whereas farm Yangzijiang had the lowest percentage (9.7%; 9 of 93). There was no significant difference in the prevalence of G. duodenalis between the beef and dairy farms (χ 2 = 0.007, df = 1, P = 0.933).. The age and gender distributions of G. duodenalis are shown in Table 2. Giardia was found across both sexes and all ages of calves (Table 2). The prevalences of G. duodenalis were 18.5% (49 of 265) and 37.8% (28 of 74) in pre- and post-weaned calves, respectively, with a significant ...
When and how often laboratory tests are done may depend on many factors. The timing of laboratory tests may rely on the results or completion of other tests, procedures, or treatments. Lab tests may be performed immediately in an emergency, or tests may be delayed as a condition is treated or monitored. A test may be suggested or become necessary when certain signs or symptoms appear. Due to changes in the way your body naturally functions through the course of a day, lab tests may need to be performed at a certain time of day. If you have prepared for a test by changing your food or fluid intake, lab tests may be timed in accordance with those changes. Timing of tests may be based on increased and decreased levels of medications, drugs or other substances in the body. The age or gender of the person being tested may affect when and how often a lab test is required. Chronic or progressive conditions may need ongoing monitoring through the use of lab tests. Conditions that worsen and improve may ...

Whilst the use of this technology for the concentration of Giardia lamblia cysts from water samples has been published (Bifulco and Schaefer, 1993) and the potential for the use of this technique for the separation and concentration of Cryptosporidium oocysts from water has been recognised, (Robertson and Smith, 1992; Smith et al, 1993, Parker and Smith, 1994), no full-scale testing of the actual practical application of this technique for the separation and concentration of parasites from water has been previously conducted.. In the work undertaken for this report, the use of this technique was tested in five laboratories which undertake routine analyses of water samples for Cryptosporidium oocysts, ...

Diagnosis is based on demonstration of the infection and the elimination of other possible causes of diarrhea such as Salmonella or Campylobacter. Giardia cysts may be observed directly in fecal samples or indirectly using an ELISA technique. The ELISA technique requires a kit and some method of reading a color change or production of fluorescence. Studies examining the reliability of some immunoflourescent kits have found them to be over 90% accurate, with relatively few false results, however, the tests are costly and probably only worthwhile where there are a large number of samples to be processed and a technician who is familiar with carrying out ELISAS. Direct examination of feces, using zinc sulphate centrifugal flotation, followed by staining the supernatant with Lugols iodine, has been found to be up to 70% effective at detecting infection from a single fecal sample. The cyst output is variable so the detection rate may be improved by pooling fecal samples collected over three days. ...

A dog becomes infected by eating the cyst form of the parasite. In the small intestine, the cyst opens and releases an active form called a trophozoite. These have flagella, hair-like structures that whip back and forth allowing them to move around. They attach to the intestinal wall and reproduce by dividing in two. After an unknown number of divisions, at some stage, in an unknown location, this form develops a wall around itself (encysts) and is passed in the feces. The Giardia in the feces can contaminate the environment and water and infect other animals and people ...

Compared with many protists, Giardia lamblia has a simple life cycle alternating between cyst and trophozoite. Most research on the molecular biology of Giardia parasites has focused on trophozoites and the processes of excystation and encystation, whereas cysts have attracted less interest. The striking morphological differences between the dormant cyst and the rapidly dividing and motile trophozoite implies profound changes in the metabolism as the parasite encysts in the hosts intestine and excysts upon ingestion by a new host. To investigate the magnitude of the transcriptional changes occurring during the G. lamblia life cycle we compared the transcriptome of G. lamblia trophozoites and cysts using single-color oligonucleotide microarrays. Cysts were found to possess a much smaller transcriptome, both in terms of mRNA diversity and abundance. Genes encoding proteins related to ribosomal functions are highly over-represented. The comparison of the transcriptome of cysts generated in culture or
Infections with Giardia are among the most common causes of food and water-borne diarrheal disease worldwide. Here, we investigated Th17, Treg and IgA responses, and alterations in gut microbiota in two mouse lines with varying susceptibility to Giardia muris infection. Infected BALB/c mice shed significantly more cysts compared with C57BL/6 mice. Impaired control of infection in BALB/c mice was associated with lower Th17 activity and lower IgA levels compared with C57BL/6 mice. The limited metabolic activity, proliferation and cytokine production of Th17 cells in BALB/c mice was associated with higher proportions of intestinal Foxp3+RORγt+ regulatory T cells and BALB/c mice developed increased RORγt+ Treg:Th17 ratios in response to G. muris infection. Furthermore, G. muris colonization led to a significantly reduced evenness in the gut microbial communities of BALB/c mice. Our data indicate that differential susceptibility to Giardia infections may be related to RORγt+ Treg controlling Th17 activity
Giardia was initially named Cercomonas intestinalis by Lambl in 1859 and renamed Giardia lamblia by Stiles in 1915, in honor of Professor A. Giard of Paris and Dr. F. Lambl of Prague. However, Giardia intestinalis is considered by many to be the correct name for this protozoan. Different species of Giardia are structurally very similar. It was customary to give each Giardia a different name when it was found in a new host, and thus Giardia in dogs was called Giardia canis; in cattle, Giardia bovis, and so on. Today scientists believe that only a few species occur, and each species can infect more than one host. However, more research is needed to identify each species and determine the hosts they can infect. Giardia lamblia is the most commonly diagnosed intestinal parasite in public health laboratories in the United States, and is diagnosed by finding cysts or trophozoites in the feces of humans or animals (both of Giardias life cycle stages have a characteristic appearance).

Its acquired when you drink water containing giardia cysts, which then blossom in your gut into the binucleate trophozite phase pictured here. This leads to diarrhea, excessive flatulence, foul-smelling excrement, nausea, fatigue, and abdominal cramps. Yuck.

There are only limited number of reports on molecular epidemiology of Cryptosporidium spp. and Giardia duodenalis in dogs and cats in China. This study was conducted to assess the infection rates, genetic identity, and public health potential of these parasites in dogs and cats in Guangdong, China. PCR and sequence analyses were used to identify and genotype Cryptosporidium spp. and G. duodenalis in fecal samples from 641 dogs and 418 cats in Guangdong. Chi-square test and odds ratio analysis were used to compare the occurrence rates of these pathogens and identify risk factors for infection. The overall infection rates of Cryptosporidium spp. and G. duodenalis were 6.9% (44/641) and 9.4% (60/641) in dogs, and 6.2% (26/418) and 3.6% (15/418) in cats. Purebred cats (12.4%; χ2 = 5.110, OR = 2.8, P = 0.024) and dogs (10.8%; χ2 = 5.597, OR = 4.8, P = 0.018) were more likely to be infected by Cryptosporidium spp. and G. duodenalis, respectively. Dogs (12.0%; χ2 = 7.589, OR = 2.6, P = 0.006) and cats (13.6

Potential transmission vehicles for this zoonotic parasite are both water and food sources. As such consumption of water contaminated by feces, or food sources washed in contaminated water containing parasite cysts, may result in outbreaks. This creates local public health risks which can potentially cause widespread infection and long-term post-infection sequelae.

It also summarizes knowledge of potential infection/transmission routes covering water, food, person-to-person infection and zoonotic transmission from livestock and ...
Fecal specimens for parasitic examination should be collected before initiation of antidiarrheal therapy or antiparasitic therapy. The highest yield on hospitalized patients occurs when diarrhea is present on admission or within 72 hours of admission. The onset of diarrhea more than 72 hours after admission is usually caused by Clostridium difficile toxin rather than parasites or the usual stool pathogens. The following recommendations are made for efficient and cost-effective diagnosis of diarrheal disease in patients admitted with gastroenteritis.. • Submit one or two specimens per diarrheal illness immediately. Consider first requesting EIAs for Giardia and Cryptosporidium (See test Giardia lamblia, Direct Detection EIA [182204] or Giardia lamblia, Direct Detection EIA and Cryptosporidium, Direct Detection EIA [183558]).

The prevalence and pathogenic significance and production effects of protozoan infections in sheep have received comparatively little attention in Australia and other nations. Previous studies that have been conducted on the prevalence of Cryptosporidium and Giardia spp. in sheep based on microscopy have reported prevalences ranging from 6.2% to 68.6% for Giardia spp. (6, 10, 25, 35) and 10.1% to 68.3% for Cryptosporidium spp. (1, 7, 15, 20, 21, 26).. In the present study, PCR detection was much more sensitive than microscopy; Giardia was detected in 8.7% (144 of 1,647) of samples by microscopy versus 45.5% (67 of 147) by PCR and Cryptosporidium was detected in 2.6% (43 of 1,647) of samples by microscopy versus 26.25% (63 of 240) by PCR. The disparity between the microscopy and PCR results could have been affected by the fact that samples were pooled for microscopy thereby reducing the sensitivity. However, prior to screening, fecal samples were spiked with known numbers of oocysts/cysts and ...

If you think you have giardiasis contact your health care provider.. Diagnosing Giardia infection. Your health care provider will ask you to submit stool samples to see if you are infected. Because testing for giardiasis can be difficult, you may be asked to submit several stool specimens collected over several days.. Treatment. Many prescription drugs are available to treat giardiasis. Although the Giardia parasite can infect all people, infants and pregnant women may be more likely to experience dehydration from the diarrhea caused by giardiasis. To prevent dehydration, infants and pregnant women should drink a lot of fluids while ill. Dehydration can be life threatening for infants, so it is especially important that parents talk to their health care providers about treatment options for their infants..

Giardia is a waterborne organism that is the most commonly identified pathogenic intestinal protozoan in the United States. Current detection techniques for Giardia in water include microscopy and immunofluorescence techniques. Speciation of the genus Giardia has been based on taxonomic criteria such as cell morphology and host specificity. Classification based on these criteria is inadequate for determining the different species of Giardia. The authors have developed a PCR-gene probe based detection system specific for Giardia, which can discriminate between the human relevant species of the G. duodenalis group and other Giardia species. The method can detect a single Giardia cyst and is therefore, sensitive enough for environmental monitoring ...

Abstract Isoenzyme patterns of 32 isolates of Giardia duodenalis, obtained from 6 beavers and 11 humans from British Columbia, plus 15 other isolates were evaluated using thin-layer starch-gel electrophoresis. We attempted to use 12 enzymes; 9 gave reproducible and interpretable results. The isoenzyme patterns of the isolates were classified into 12 groups with 17 (53%) of the 32 isolates confined to 1 group. The other 11 groups each comprised only 1 or 2 isolates. There was no obvious correlation between clinical symptoms and isoenzyme patterns. Our findings suggest that beavers, like humans and gerbils are receptive to organisms with many different isoenzyme patterns.
Giardia lamblia protozoan, coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). This is a single-celled parasite of the intestinal tract. It is most common in tropical regions. This is the trophozoite (active, feeding) life stage of the protozoan. The cell has flagella (hair-like structures), which are used for locomotion. Giardia lamblia is the causative agent of giardiasis, an intestinal disease that causes abdominal pain, diarrhoea and nausea. It is spread through contaminated food and water. Treatment is with antibiotics or antiprotozoal drugs, such as metronidazole. - Stock Image Z100/0235

In the present investigation, we have applied for the first time, antisense molecular beacon based Fluorescence Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET) and Flow Cytometric Energy Transfer (FCET) techniques to demonstrate binding and co-localization of fibrillarin protein with small nuclear RNA (snRNA) to form ribonucleoprotein particle (RNPP) complex in Giardia lamblia. It has been observed by FRET and FCET that energy transfer occurs from fluorescence tagged fibrillarin to snRNA antisense molecular beacon confirming the clear physical interaction ...
Programmed cell death (PCD) has been observed in many unicellular eukaryotes; however, in very few cases have the pathways been described. Recently the early divergent amitochondrial eukaryote Giardia has been included in this group. In this paper we investigate the processes of PCD in Giardia. We performed a bioinformatics survey of Giardia genomes to identify genes associated with PCD alongside traditional methods for studying apoptosis and autophagy. Analysis of Giardia genomes failed to highlight any genes involved in apoptotic-like PCD; however, we were able to induce apoptotic-like morphological changes in response to oxidative stress (H2O2) and drugs (metronidazole). In addition we did not detect caspase activity in induced cells. Interestingly, we did observe changes resembling autophagy when cells were starved (staining with MDC) and genome analysis revealed some key genes associated with autophagy such as TOR, ATG1 and ATG 16. In organisms such as Trichomonas vaginalis, Entamoeba ...

Giardia cysts are highly resistant and can be very difficult to get rid of. Recurrent infections are therefore possible even after successful medicinal treatment, Hinney explains. It is necessary to maintain certain hygienic standards in order to successfully eliminate Giardia in cats. The cysts of Giardia can survive quite well in moist and warm environments. Hinney therefore recommends washing blankets and towels which the animals have had contact with at temperatures of at least 60 degree Celsius. Drinking bowls and food dishes should be washed regularly with hot water and dried. As Giardia can be transmitted through the water, cat faeces should always be disposed with the household waste and not in the toilet. It is not always possible to eliminate a Giardia infection even with strict adherence to these hygienic measures. If a cat continues to excrete Giardia despite medical therapy without exhibiting any symptoms, veterinarians and medical doctors can help determine if continued treatment ...
As indicated in the sample vignettes, the clinical manifestations and histopathological findings of Giardia infections vary (1). While there are many symptomatic infections and epidemics in the US and similar countries where Giardia infections are sporadic, in highly endemic regions, proven disease due to giardiasis is uncommon and controversial. Published reports have indicated no effects, detrimental effects, and even beneficial effects (3). A recent meta-analysis suggested that Giardia could be responsible for adverse nutritional effects among children with persistent diarrhea (3). Although we know there is variability in infection and disease, the cause(s) of this variability are largely unknown. Human experimental infections clearly demonstrated that both host and parasite determinants play a role. Using defined, axenically cultured trophozoites, Nash et al. demonstrated differences in infectivity and virulence among isolates as well as among individuals infected with the same cloned ...
Small RNAs (sRNAs), including microRNAs and endogenous siRNAs (endo-siRNAs), regulate most important biologic processes in eukaryotes, such as cell division and differentiation. Although sRNAs have been extensively studied in various eukaryotes, the role of sRNAs in the early emergence of eukaryotes is unclear. To address these questions, we deep sequenced the sRNA transcriptome of four different stages in the differentiation of Giardia lamblia, one of the most primitive eukaryotes. We identified a large number of endo-siRNAs in this fascinating parasitic protozoan and found that they were produced from live telomeric retrotransposons and three genomic regions (i.e., endo-siRNA generating regions [eSGRs]). eSGR-derived endo-siRNAs were proven to target mRNAs in trans. Gradual up-regulation of endo-siRNAs in the differentiation of Giardia suggested that they might be involved in the regulation of this process. This hypothesis was supported by the impairment of the differentiation ability of ...
Davids, B.J., D.S. Reiner, S.R. Birkeland, S.P. Preheim, M.J. Cipriano, A.G. McArthur, & F.D. Gillin. 2006. A new family of giardial cysteine-rich non-VSP protein genes and a novel cyst protein. PLoS ONE, 1, e44.. Since the Giardia lamblia cyst wall is necessary for survival in the environment and host infection, we tested the hypothesis that it contains proteins other than the three known cyst wall proteins. Serial analysis of gene expression during growth and encystation revealed a gene, HCNCp (High Cysteine Non-variant Cyst protein), that was upregulated late in encystation, and that resembled the classic Giardia variable surface proteins (VSPs) that cover the trophozoite plasmalemma. HCNCp is 13.9% cysteine, with many CxxC tetrapeptide motifs and a transmembrane sequence near the C-terminus. However, HCNCp has multiple CxC motifs rarely found in VSPs, and does not localize to the trophozoite plasmalemma. Moreover, the HCNCp C-terminus differed from the canonical VSP signature. ...
Giardia lamblia, a pathogen causing diarrhoeal outbreaks, is interesting how it triggers immune response in the human epithelial cells. This study defined the crucial roles of signalling components involved in G. lamblia-induced cytokine production in human epithelial cells. Incubation of the gastrointestinal cell line HT-29 with G. lamblia GS trophozoites triggered production of interleukin (IL)-1β, IL-8 and tumour necrosis factor (TNF)-α. IL-8 production was not significantly decreased by physically separating the HT-29 cells and G. lamblia GS trophozoites. Indeed, treatment of HT-29 with G. lamblia excretory-secretory products (ESP) induced IL-8 production. Electrophoretic mobility gel shift and transfection assays using mutagenized IL-8 promoter reporter plasmids indicated that IL-8 production by G. lamblia ESP occurs through activation of two transcriptional factors, nuclear factor kappaB (NF-κB) and activator protein 1 (AP-1) in HT-29 cells. In addition, activation of two ...
The giardins are a family of approximately 30000 Mr structural proteins found in microribbons attached to microtubules in the disc cytoskeleton of Giardia. After examining the solubility of giardins in various agents, a method has been developed to extract these polypeptides and subsequently precipitate them selectively. The giardin chains are soluble in 10 mM-HEPES/EDTA buffer at high pH and low ionic strength, but become insoluble in 10 mM-MES/EDTA buffer at pH 6.7 when the ionic strength is raised above 50 mM salt. By dialysing giardin extracts in turn against dissociating and reassembly buffers, the purification is obtained of a subset of giardin chains identified by sodium dodecyl sulphate/polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis as the cytoskeleton bands 14a, 14b and 15. The structures forming under assembly conditions are all composed of fine filaments, 2-3 nm in diameter. Filaments after the first cycle of assembly are found in bundles, narrow ribbons of two or three filaments, and large ...
Hi Im new here. I have an 8 month GSD and he is on his second round of Giardia medication. Metro and Panacur. He also had roundworms, but the second fecal test came up clean from worms, but still with Giardia. The first round of medicine was easier to feed him, but he is so tired of it. We got him at 4 months old and he had solid poop, but slept like 18-20 hours a day, the breeder said that was normal for the breed and not to worry. I noticed Diarrhea a few days after bringing him home and I called the breeder and they said it was just stress and he needs a few days to adjust. The poop never hardened. a few months go by and I couldnt just think this was normal. We were taking him camping and on road trips, so i kept telling myself he just needed to adjust and hed get used to it. I decided to go get him a fecal test done. They told me he had Real bad Giardia 4 plus cysts per sample which they said was a severe case and Roundworms. We got him on meds ASAP and this is where we are now ...

Fenbendazole and metronidazole are the drugs most commonly used to kill Giardia. These medications can be very bitter, so they are often manufactured in a coated tablet form. In order to get the correct dose for cats, the tablet must often be split, thus exposing the bitter contents. To make it easier to administer these medications, veterinary compounding pharmacies can be used to prepare them in flavored formulas that mask the bitterness. The treatment is given orally for five to seven days.. Fenbendazole and metronidazole may be used alone or in combination. The combination of the two drugs is usually administered to cats with refractory diarrhea (diarrhea that has not responded to treatment). Supportive treatment with other drugs may be needed as supplemental therapy if dehydration or severe diarrhea is present.. Your veterinarian will help determine what course of treatment is best for your pet.. Because Giardia cysts are infective immediately when passed into the environment, feces should ...
Giardia lamblia (or Giardia intestinalis), the parasite that causes giardiasis, is found in all parts of the world. But your chances of becoming infected are highest in areas in which water treatment facilities are limited or general sanitation is poor. When traveling in these places or whenever youre uncertain about water quality, take these precautions:Use only boiled or bottled water for drinking, washing your hands, and brushing your teeth.Avoid raw fruits and vegetables whenever possible. (They may have been washed in contaminated water.) If you must eat them raw, peel them first.Dont use ice that may have been made from contaminated water.

Alpha-giardins constitute the annexin proteome (group E annexins) in the intestinal protozoan parasite Giardia and, as such, represent the evolutionary oldest eukaryotic annexins. The dominance of alpha-giardins in the cytoskeleton of Giardiawith its greatly reduced actin content emphasises the importance of the alpha-giardins for the structural integrity of the parasite, which is particularly critical in the transformation stage between cyst and trophozoite. In this study, we report the crystal structures of the apo- and calcium-bound forms of a1-giardin, a protein localised to the plasma membrane of Giardia trophozoites that has recently been identified as a vaccine target. The calcium-bound crystal structure of a1-giardin revealed the presence of a type III site in the first repeat as known from other annexin structures, as well as a novel calcium binding site situated between repeats I and IV. By means of comparison, the crystal structures of three different alpha-giardins known to date ...

Indeed, thats what many thought-and what many still teach. In an article titled, A Homage to Giardia, Kim Nasmyth observed: To learn more about eukaryotes common ancestor, we need to know about protozoan organisms that descend from the earliest offshoots of the eukaryotic lineage. A good candidate is the archaezoan Giardia lamblia,… (1996, 6:1042). Soltys described it this way: Giardia lamblia is considered one of the deepest branching or most primitive eukaryotes in existence… (n.d.).. However, a recent study has evolutionists scrambling for a new missing link. In the report documenting this latest discovery, Tovar and colleagues noted: …here we demonstrate that Giardia contain mitochondrial remnant organelles (mitosomes) bounded by double membranes that function in iron-sulphur protein maturation. Our results indicate that Giardia is not primitively amitochondrial… (2003, 426:172, parenthetical item in orig.). Henze and Martin noted: For years, a unicellular creature ...

Dr. Andrea Rópolo received his Ph.D. from the National University of Córdoba, Argentina in 2001 and then subsequently performed her post-doctoral training studying different aspect of the antigenic variation process in Giardia, a parasitic protozoan of humans and other vertebrates and a major source of waterborne disease worldwide. Dr. Rópolo currently serves as an Investigator in the Laboratory of Microbiology and Immunology in the Ferreyra Research Institute of Córdoba, Argentina. She is also Assistant Professor in the National University of Córdoba. His current researches focus on epigenetic mechanisms involved in the biology of the parasite Giardia lamblia. Particularly, her team wants to understand how the SUMOylation of proteins and the deimination (citrullination) of arginines regulate growth and cyst differentiation in Giardia. She also leads the production of monoclonal antibodies against recombinant proteins, peptides and native proteins in the Ferreyra Research Institute for ...
Abstract. The association of wealth and infections with Giardia, Cryptosporidium, Cyclospora, and microsporidia were examined in a longitudinal cohort conducted in Peru from 2001 to 2006. Data from 492 participants were daily clinical manifestations, weekly copro-parasitological diagnosis, and housing characteristics and assets owned (48 variables), and these data were used to construct a global wealth index using principal component analysis. Data were analyzed using continuous and categorical (wealth tertiles) models. Participant's mean age was 3.43 years (range = 0-12 years), with average follow-up of 993 days. Univariate and multivariate analyses identified significant associations between wealth and infections with Giardia and microsporidia. Participants with greater wealth indexes were associated with protection against Giardia (P < 0.001) and persistent Giardia infections (> 14 days). For microsporidia, greater wealth was protective (P = 0.066 continuous and P = 0.042 by tertiles).
