Cryptosporidium parvum antibody | 7631
C. parvum is one of several species that cause cryptosporidiosis; a disease affecting the intestines of mammals spread through the fecal-oral route. The main symptom is self-limiting diarrhea in people with intact immune systems. However, in immunocompromised individuals, such as AIDS patients, infection can cause permanent & life-threatening diarrhea. Cryptosporidiosis is one of the most common waterborne diseases worldwide (Current & Garcia 1991) .
