prevalence of cryptosporidium species and genotypes in mature dairy cattle on farms in eastern united states compared with younger cattle from the same locations.feces collected from 541 milking cows on two dairy farms each in vermont, new york, pennsylvania, maryland, virginia, north carolina, and florida were examined for the presence of cryptosporidium oocysts. oocysts were concentrated from 15 g of feces from each cow and dna was extracted. a two-step nested pcr protocol was used to amplify an 830 base pair fragment of the ssurrna gene. pcr-positive products were purified and sequenced. pcr-positive findings were obtained from cows in all seven state ...200717287086
from the centers for disease control and prevention. outbreak of gastroenteritis associated with an interactive water fountain at a beachside park--florida, 1999. 200010950662

detection of viral pathogens by reverse transcriptase pcr and of microbial indicators by standard methods in the canals of the florida keys.in order to assess the microbial water quality in canal waters throughout the florida keys, a survey was conducted to determine the concentration of microbial fecal indicators and the presence of human pathogenic microorganisms. a total of 19 sites, including 17 canal sites and 2 nearshore water sites, were assayed for total coliforms, fecal coliforms, escherichia coli, clostridium perfringens, enterococci, coliphages, f-specific (f(+)) rna coliphages, giardia lamblia, cryptosporidium parvum, an ...199910473424
outbreak of cryptosporidiosis at a day camp--florida, july-august 1995.on july 27, 1995, the alachua county public health unit (acphu) in central florida was notified of an outbreak of gastroenteritis among children and counselors at a day camp on the grounds of a public elementary school. this report summarizes the outbreak investigation, which implicated cryptosporidium parvum as the causative agent and underscores the role of contaminated water as a vehicle for transmission of this organism.19968618545
neutralization-sensitive epitopes are conserved among geographically diverse isolates of cryptosporidium parvum.isolates of cryptosporidium parvum from new york, florida, brazil, mexico, and peru were examined for the presence of two sporozoite surface epitopes originally identified in an iowa isolate by neutralizing monoclonal antibodies (mabs) 18.44 and 17.41. immunofluorescence microscopy and immunoblotting demonstrated the presence of both epitopes on all isolates. incubation of deae-cellulose-purified sporozoites of the new york, florida, brazil, and mexico isolates with mab 18.44 or 17.41 significan ...19921372299
