I am curious about this organism as a potential public health problem.
Since an outbreak in Green Bay WI, this sort of wimpy coccidia has
elevated itself to be a serious problem, especially in immune
compromised individuals. The spread of this organism appears to be
horses - which may have a signigificant impact on horseback riders. I
know that University of California, Davis is taking this seriously,
they are requesting fecal samples from horse owners all over the state.
I would sure be interested in any information regarding
cryptosporidium, references etc.
