Abstract: Cryptosporidium is an important intestinal parasite that is mainly transmitted through the fecal⁃oral route. Human infection may occur following ingestion of water and food contaminated by Cryptosporidium oocysts, and children and immunocompromised individuals are at a high risk of infections. The main symptoms of Cryptosporidium infections include diarrhea, vomiting, malnutrition, and even death. Because of high sensitivity and rapid procedures, molecular tests are helpful for the diagnosis of cryptosporidiosis and may reduce the public health risk of cryptosporidiosis. This review summarizes the advances in the latest prevalence and molecular detection of human Cryptosporidium infections during recent years.

摘要: 隐孢子虫是一种重要的肠道寄生虫,主要经粪⁃口途径传播,人摄入被隐孢子虫卵囊污染的水源和食物均有感染风险。儿童及免疫力低下者为隐孢子虫感染高危人群,感染后可以引起腹泻、呕吐、营养不良等,严重者甚至导致死亡。分子检测技术因反应快速、灵敏度高,已广泛应用于隐孢子虫检测。本文对近年来人群隐孢子虫感染流行情况,以及隐孢子虫分子检测相关研究进展进行综述。
