Intestinal parasites are prevalent in the developing regions of the world. With increasing travel to and from endemic regions, changing immigration patterns, and the expansion of transplant medicine in developing countries, they are increasingly recognized as a source of morbidity and mortality in solid‐organ transplant recipients.

Introduction Food safety is a major concern for the global community, with an estimated 600 million cases of foodborne illnesses occurring annually (FAO/WHO, 2019). Foodborne illnesses could be due to infection (biological risk) or toxicity (chemical risk) resulting from consumption of contaminated food.

Introduction Cyclospora cayetanensis is an intestinal protozoan parasite that causes a diarrheal illness in humans called cyclosporiasis. Symptoms of cyclosporiasis include explosive watery diarrhea, nausea, fatigue, increased gas, weight loss, bloating, and loss of appetite, with symptoms typically beginning an average of 7 days after infection (Herwaldt, 2000). Humans become infected with C. cayetanensis after consuming food or water contaminated with the parasite's sporulated oocysts. Infected humans shed non-sporulated oocysts, which require 7–15 days under ideal conditions (23–27 °C) in the environment, to sporulate and become infective (Ortega and Sanchez, 2010). Cyclosporiasis is an emerging infectious disease in developing and developed countries such as the U.S. and Canada (Dixon, 2016).

The past several summers have seen rises in domestically acquired infections from the parasite Cyclospora cayetanensis, which is spread by eating food or drinking water contaminated with feces. Profuse diarrhea that can last weeks to months is a hallmark of Cyclospora infection. Rev. cuerpo méd. HNAAA 11(4) 2018 Cyclospora cayetanensis: Parásito de atención en Perú.

Introduction Cyclospora cayetanensis is a human protozoan parasite that is considered an emerging foodborne pathogen (Dixon, 2016). According to the Food and Agriculture Organization and the World Health Organization (FAO/WHO), C. cayetanensis is one of the top 15 most important parasites transmitted via food, particularly by fresh produce (FAO/WHO, 2014). In 2018, there was a total of 2299 laboratory-confirmed domestically acquired cases from 33 states in the U.S. and 160 of the affected people needed hospitalization (Casillas et al., 2018; CDC, 2018). Foodborne infection through consumption of contaminated fresh produce is one of the main routes of transmission of C. cayetanensis (Butler et al., 2015; Mead et al., 1999; Scallan et al., 2011). Table 1 summarizes C. cayetanensis outbreaks linked, or suspected to be linked, to berries worldwide. FRONT.

MICROORGANIMS 04/09/19 Cyclospora cayetanensis and Cyclosporiasis: An Update

It is globally distributed and an important cause of foodborne outbreaks of enteric disease in many developed countries, mostly associated with the consumption of contaminated fresh produce. Because oocysts are excreted unsporulated and need to sporulate in the environment, direct person-to-person transmission is unlikely. Infection by C. cayetanensis is remarkably seasonal worldwide, although it varies by geographical regions.

Cyclosporiasis is most common in tropical and subtropical regions of the world. CIDRAP 26/04/19 Annual snapshot of foodborne illnesses shows Cyclospora spike. In its annual report summing up the latest trends with pathogens that are common sources of foodborne illness, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said today that the incidence of most illnesses increased in 2018, especially Cyclospora infections. A team from the CDC and partners in 10 states that are part of the FoodNet surveillance network looked at levels for 2018 and compared them with levels for 2015 through 2017. The pathogens they tracked included Campylobacter, Cryptosporidium, Cyclospora, Listeria, Salmonella, Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC), Shigella, Vibrio, and Yersinia.

They published their findings today in the latest edition of Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.

NEW YORK POST 23/05/19 Foodborne parasite leaves British tourist vomiting blood in Mexico (Cyclospora) A British tourist marking his anniversary in Mexico contracted a potentially deadly foodborne parasite that left him vomiting blood. “We went out for a meal on our first night and had a really nice time,” Chris Gillian told UK television station ITV, according to The Sun.

“But almost a week in, I’d woken up feeling funny.” Gillian’s queasiness worsened as the day went on, until he nearly passed out as he and his wife, Marisa, were lounging poolside at the resort. “I started to get really bad headaches and feel really dizzy, so we went back to the hotel room,” he said. “I remember laying on the bed and I just had this sudden urge that I was going to throw up.

“I barely made it to the sink and just threw up what I can only describe as just blood.” Gillian was rushed into a hospital, where he was plied with painkillers and antibiotics.

APHEO Annual Conference, May 15-17, 2011 Cyclospora Outbreak Investigation in Lambton - County: Utilization of EpiData Software. Cyclospora cayetanensis. Cyclospora cayetanensis is a protozoan that causes disease in humans, and perhaps primates. It has been linked in the United States to fecally contaminated imported raspberries and was virtually unknown before about 1990, but has been on the rise since. The health risk associated with the disease is usually confined to adult foreigners visiting regions where the species is endemic and acquiring the infection, which is why C. cayetanensis has been labeled as causing "traveler's diarrhea. " This species was placed in the Cyclospora genus because of the spherical shape of its sporocysts.

The species name refers to the Cayetano Heredia University in Lima, Peru, where early epidemiological and taxonomic work was done.[1] Characterization[edit] ACIA - Pathogène: Cyclospora – parasite.
