prevalence, risk factors and molecular characterization of enterocytozoon bieneusi in raccoon dogs (nyctereutes procyonoides) in five provinces of northern china.the disease microsporidiosis is found worldwide and is mainly caused by enterocytozoon bieneusi. e. bieneusi can infect a wide range of hosts; however, information regarding the prevalence and genotyping of e. bieneusi infection in raccoon dogs (nyctereutes procyonoides) is limited. therefore, in 2015, we examined 305 faecel samples from 80 farmed raccoon dogs in jilin province, from 54 in hebei province, from 72 in liaoning province, from 29 in shandong province, and from 40 in heilongjiang pro ...201627260667
enterocytozoon bieneusi in dairy cattle in the northeast of china: genetic diversity of its gene and evaluation of zoonotic transmission potential.enterocytozoon bieneusi is the most frequently diagnosed microsporidian species in humans. it has been found in a wide range of animals and is considered an important zoonotic pathogen. to date, little information is available on the role that cattle play in the epidemiology of human microsporidiosis caused by e. bieneusi in china. in this study, 133 fecal specimens from dairy cattle were collected in heilongjiang province, china. enterocytozoon bieneusi was identified and genotyped by nested pc ...201525712195
prevalence and genetic characteristics of cryptosporidium, enterocytozoon bieneusi and giardia duodenalis in cats and dogs in heilongjiang province, china.this study investigated 319 fecal specimens of cats (n=52) and dogs (n=267) from heilongjiang province, china for the prevalence and genetic characteristics of cryptosporidium, enterocytozoon bieneusi, and giardia duodenalis. pcr and dna sequence analysis of the small subunit rrna gene identified c. felis and c. parvum in one cat each (3.8%) and c. canis and c. ubiquitum in 6 dogs (2.2%). polymorphisms in the ribosomal internal transcribed spacer and phylogenetic analysis characterized zoonotic ...201525665462
genotypic distribution and phylogenetic characterization of enterocytozoon bieneusi in diarrheic chickens and pigs in multiple cities, china: potential zoonotic transmission.this study investigated diarrheic broiler and layer chickens (<50 days; n=14) and pigs of three age groups (preweaned <30 days, weaned ≈30 to 60 days, and growing >60 days; n=64) for e. bieneusi genotypes in northeast china and evaluated the potential roles of chickens and pigs in zoonotic transmission of microsporidiosis. two 45-day-old layer chickens in city jixi, heilongjiang province and one 23-day-old broiler chicken in city songyuan, jilin province were identified to harbor a human-pathoge ...201425255117
high prevalence of enterocytozoon bieneusi in asymptomatic pigs and assessment of zoonotic risk at the genotype level.enterocytozoon bieneusi is an emerging and clinically significant enteric parasite infecting humans and animals and can cause life-threatening diarrhea in immunocompromised people. pigs are considered to be one of the main reservoir hosts of e. bieneusi based on their high prevalence rates and zoonotic genotypes in pigs. as an opportunistic pathogen, e. bieneusi infection of pigs can be inapparent, which leads to neglect in detecting this parasite in pigs and assessing the epidemiological role o ...201424727270
genotypes of enterocytozoon bieneusi in livestock in china: high prevalence and zoonotic potential.despite many recent advances in genotype characterization of enterocytozoon bieneusi worldwide and the exploration of the extent of cross-species transmission of microsporidiosis between humans and animals, the epidemiology of this neglected disease in china is poorly understood. in this study, a very high prevalence (60.3%; 94/156) of e. bieneusi infections in farmed pigs in jilin province was detected by pcr of the ribosomal internal transcribed spacer (its). dna sequence analysis of 88 e. bie ...201424845247
prevalence of enterocytozoon bieneusi and genetic diversity of its genotypes in sheep and goats in china.enterocytozoon bieneusi is the most common microsporidia species, recognized in more than 90% cases of human microsporidiosis and has been found in a variety of animal hosts. to explore the prevalence of e. bieneusi in sheep and goats in china, genetic diversity and zoonotic potential of e. bieneusi, 193 fecal specimens from 138 sheep and 55 goats from eight farms in heilongjiang province, china were analyzed for the occurrence of e. bieneusi by pcr and sequencing of the single internal transcri ...201525818401
genotyping of enterocytozoon bieneusi in farmed blue foxes (alopex lagopus) and raccoon dogs (nyctereutes procyonoides) in china.enterocytozoon bieneusi is the most common species of microsporidia found both in humans and animals. farmed animals, particularly closely associated to humans, may play an important role of zoonotic reservoir in transmitting this disease to humans. the fur industry is a major economic component in some parts of china. to understand the prevalence, genotype variety and zoonotic risk of e. bieneusi in farmed foxes and raccoon dogs, two species of fur animals, fecal specimens of 110 blue foxes and ...201526544711
subtyping of cryptosporidium cuniculus and genotyping of enterocytozoon bieneusi in rabbits in two farms in heilongjiang province, china.cryptosporidium spp. and enterocytozoon bieneusi are two prevalent opportunistic pathogens in humans and animals. currently, few data are available on genetic characterization of both pathogens in rabbits in china. the aim of the present study was to understand prevalence and genetic characterization of cryptosporidium spp. and e. bieneusi in rabbits. we collected 215 fecal samples from 150 rex rabbits and 65 new zealand white rabbits on two different farms in heilongjiang province, china. crypt ...201627882867
