Tanrıverdi, S., et al. (2008). Inferences about the global population structures of Cryptosporidium parvum and Cryptosporidium hominis
(American Society for Microbiology, 2008-12)
Cryptosporidium parvum and Cryptosporidium hominis are two related species of apicomplexan protozoa responsible for the majority of human cases of cryptosporidiosis. In spite of their considerable public health impact, ...
Cryptosproridiosis and microsporidiosis in Ugandan children with persistent diarrhea with and without concurrent infection with the Human Immunodeficiency Virus
(American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, 2005)
Cryptosporidium spp. and Enterocytozoon bieneusi are enteric pathogens that have emerged as significant causes of persistent diarrhea (PD) in immunologically compromised individuals particularly in association with HIV/AIDS. ...
Monoclonal antibodies against enterocytozoon bieneusi of human origin
(American Society for Microbiology, 2005)
Enterocytozoon bieneusi is clinically the most significant among the microsporidia infecting humans, causing chronic diarrhea, wasting, and cholangitis in individuals with human immunodeficiency virus/AIDS. The lack of ...
Microsporidiosis and malnutrition in children with persistent diarrhea, Uganda
(National Center for Infectious Diseases, 2009-01)
