zoonotic cryptosporidium spp. and enterocytozoon bieneusi in pet chinchillas (chinchilla lanigera) in china.cryptosporidium and enterocytozoon bieneusi are the most prevalent protist pathogens responsible for inducing human and animal diseases worldwide. the aim of the present work was to determine the occurrence of cryptosporidium spp. and e. bieneusi in pet chinchillas in china. one hundred forty fecal samples were collected from four cities: beijing, zhengzhou, anyang and guiyang. they were then examined with pcr amplification of the small subunit ribosomal rna (ssu rrna) of cryptosporidium spp. an ...201525988830
predomination and new genotypes of enterocytozoon bieneusi in captive nonhuman primates in zoos in china: high genetic diversity and zoonotic appreciate the genetic diversity and zoonotic implications of enterocytozoon bieneusi in nonhuman primates (nhps) in zoos, we genotyped e. bieneusi in captive nhps in seven zoos located at six major cities in china, using ribosomal internal transcribed spacer (its)-based pcr and sequence analyses. a total of 496 fecal specimens from 36 nhp species under nine families were analyzed and e. bieneusi was detected in 148 (29.8%) specimens of 25 nhp species from six families, including cercopitheci ...201525705879
molecular characterization of enterocytozoon bieneusi isolates in laboratory macaques in north china: zoonotic concerns.the significance of wild and zoo nonhuman primates (nhps) as potential sources of human enterocytozoon bieneusi infections has been increasingly appreciated, while the role of laboratory nhps in zoonotic transmission of microsporidiosis remains elusive. in this study, the infection rate, genetic characteristic, and zoonotic potential of e. bieneusi were investigated for 205 laboratory macaques in beijing, north china. the parasite was identified in 37 (18.0%) animals by nested pcr and sequencing ...201728861612
