ABSTRACT
The authors reflect on the significance of analyzing the parasite, Cryptosporidium parvum, in the transmission of cryptosporidiosis in humans particularly in Iran and other Mideast countries. The authors say that 60 kDa glycoprotein (gp60) gene subtyping has determined cattle as animal source of Cryptosporidium transmission in Iran. The authors also mention that further epidemiological studies of other farm animals are needed for better understanding of Cryptosporidium infection sources.
