Cryptosporidiosis News and Research

RSS
Parasitic infections caused by protozoan parasites and intestinal helminths are among the most prevalent human infections in developing countries. In developed countries, however, protozoan parasites are more frequent causes of gastrointestinal infections than helminths. Intestinal parasites (which are principally small intestine pathogens, though the large intestine may also be involved) are responsible for substantial morbidity and mortality in endemic countries.
