    Abstract : Toxoplasma gondii is an obligate intracellular parasite that infects all warm-blooded vertebrates including one third of the global human population. While infection is typically asymptomatic in healthy human hosts, reactivated and acute infection in immunosuppressed or immunecompromised individuals can lead to lethal toxoplasmic encephalitis After ingestion, the parasite crosses the intestinal epithelium and rapidly achieves systemic dissemination, ultimately establishing chronic infection in the brain.

  3. 3. Molecular detection of Vibrio cholerae and protozoa from water and interaction of V. cholerae clinical isolates with Acanthamoeba castellanii

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Laboratory Medicine

    Author : Salah Shanan; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Microbial contamination of water is a major public concern due to outbreaks of cholera, giardiasis and cryptosporidiosis. Despite this, a large number of bacteria, protozoa and viruses can be found in water. READ MORE
