Does anyone out there know of any animal infectivity studies with
protozoans that would be comparable to Cyclospora cayetanensis
(Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae)? It is a somewhat newly recognized
coccidian parasite of humans - I am attempting a risk assessment
for this organism and need information for the dose-response or
effects characterization. Post to the newsgroup or e-mail me
directly: Arhat at gnn.com or 30MCasteel at sophia.sph.unc.edu. Thanks.
