- Zoonotic linkage and variation in Cryptosporidium parvum from patients in the United Kingdom. Chalmers, Rachel; Smith, Richard; Hadfield, Stephen; Elwin, Kristin; Giles, Michaela // Parasitology Research;May2011, Vol. 108 Issue 5, p1321
Relationships between patient exposure risks and variation within the Cryptosporidium parvum 60 kDa glycoprotein (GP60) gene were explored in samples isolated from human cases of cryptosporidiosis ( n = 69) in England and Wales. GP60 family IIa predominated ( n = 56), followed by IId ( n = 9)....

Introduction: Human cryptosporidiosis has been recognized as a common cause of protozoal diarrhoea leading to significant morbidity and mortality in developing and industrialized nations. Cryptosporidium is highly associated with immunosuppressed patients and has been responsible for multiple...
- Prevalence of Cryptosporidium spp. in Camels and Involved People in Yazd Province, Iran. Sazmand, A.; Rasooli, A.; Nouri, M.; Hamidinejat, H.; Hekmatimoghaddam, S. // Iranian Journal of Parasitology;2012, Vol. 7 Issue 1, p80
Background: Although infection of dromedary camels with Cryptosporidium spp. is rare in Iran, it is considered a zoonotic threat to the keepers and herders of camels. Thus we investigated the prevalence of Cryptosporidium in these two hosts in Yazd Province, a semi-arid region in center of Iran....
