occurrence of human-pathogenic enterocytozoon bieneusi, giardia duodenalis and cryptosporidium genotypes in laboratory macaques in guangxi, china.captive nonhuman primates have been identified as common hosts of enterocytozoon bieneusi, giardia duodenalis, cryptosporidium hominis, and cyclospora spp., thus are potential reservoirs of some enteric parasites in humans. however, few studies have examined the source and human-infective potential of enteric parasites in laboratory nonhuman primates. in the present work, 205 fecal specimens were collected from three groups of captive macaca fascicularis kept in different densities in a laborato ...201424157444
first molecular characterization of enteric protozoa and the human pathogenic microsporidian, enterocytozoon bieneusi, in captive snakes in china.enteric protozoa are frequently found in snakes. nevertheless, few studies regarding genetic characterization of these parasites have been carried out. we describe here the first molecular survey of protozoan pathogens from snakes in china and the first report on enterocytozoon bieneusi genotyping in snakes in the world. here, 240 fecal specimens were collected from two species of captive snakes, naja naja (indian cobra) and ptyas mucosus (oriental rat snake), in guangxi province, china, and exa ...201424906991
genetic polymorphism and zoonotic potential of enterocytozoon bieneusi from nonhuman primates in china.enterocytozoon bieneusi is an important zoonotic pathogen. to assess the human-infective potential of e. bieneusi in nonhuman primates (nhps), we examined the prevalence and genotype distribution of e. bieneusi in 23 nhp species by pcr and sequence analysis of the ribosomal internal transcribed spacer (its). a total of 1,386 fecal specimens from nhps from five provinces in china were examined, and e. bieneusi was detected in 158 (11.4%) specimens from five nhp species, including cynomolgus monke ...201424413605
