Abstract The aim of this study was to produce a conjugate containing anti-Cryptosporidium parvum polyclonal antibodies and standardize a Direct Immunofluorescence Assay (DIE) for detecting C parvum oocysts in fecal samples from calves. In order to obtain anti-C parvum polyclonal antibodies, two New Zealand rabbits were immunized with a purified solution of C. parvum oocysts and Freund's adjuvant. Purification of the immunoglobulin G (IgG) fraction was performed by means of precipitation in ammonium sulfate and chromatography using a DEAE-cellulose column. The anti-C parvum polyclonal antibody titer was determined by means of the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA).
Abstract Background Cryptosporidium is one of the most common parasitic diarrheal agents in the world and is a known zoonosis.
+ Author Affiliations The potential for the transport of viable Cryptosporidium parvum oocysts through soil to land drains and groundwater was studied using simulated rainfall and intact soil columns which were applied raw slurry or separated liquid slurry. Following irrigation and weekly samplings over a 4-week period, C. parvum oocysts were detected from all soil columns regardless of slurry type and application method, although recovery rates were low (<1%).
Appl. Environ. Microbiol. 29/07/11 Detection of viable Cryptosporidium parvum in soil by reverse transcription real time PCR tarExtraction of high-quality mRNA from Cryptosporidium parvum is a key step in PCR detection of viable oocysts in environmental samples. Current methods for monitoring oocysts are limited to water samples; therefore, the goal of this study was to develop a rapid and sensitive procedure for Cryptosporidium detection in soil samples.
