  • First molecular characterization of Sarcocystis miescheriana in wild boars (Sus scrofa) from Latvia. [Journal Article]
    Parasitol Res. 2020 Nov; 119(11):3777-3783.Prakas P, Kirillova V, … Šulinskas G
  • Various muscle samples of wild boar (Sus scrofa) from Latvia were studied for the presence of Sarcocystis infection by means of morphological and molecular methods. Sarcocysts were detected in 122 out of 140 (87.1%) wild boar examined. According to the morphological appearance of sarcocysts, the observed cysts belonged to one morphological type and resembled Sarcocystis miescheriana. Twenty-three…
  • Sarcocystis myopathy in a patient with HIV-AIDS. [Case Reports]
    J Neurovirol. 2018 06; 24(3):376-378.Anderson D, Nathoo N, … Power C
  • Sarcocystosis is a zoonotic infection that causes intestinal and muscular illnesses in humans. Sarcocystosis was until recently considered rare in humans. To complete their life cycle, Sarcocystis species require both a definitive and an intermediate host. Humans are the definitive host when infected by one of two species: Sarcocystis hominis (from eating undercooked beef) or Sarcocystis suihomin…
  • First report of human intestinal sarcocystosis in Cambodia. [Journal Article]
    Parasitol Int. 2017 Oct; 66(5):560-562.Khieu V, Marti H, … Odermatt P
  • Human intestinal sarcocystosis (HIS), caused by Sarcocystis species, is acquired by eating undercooked meat from sarcocyst-containing cattle (S. hominis, S. heydorni) and pigs (S. suihominis). We report on the detection of human intestinal Sarcocystis infections in a cross-sectional survey of Strongyloides stercoralis in early 2014, in Rovieng District, Preah Vihear Province, northern Cambodia. A…
  • Prevalence of Muscular Sarcosporidiosis in Slaughtered Domestic Pigs in Perak, Peninsular Malaysia. [Journal Article]
    Trop Life Sci Res. 2017 Jan; 28(1):161-166.Zainalabidin FA, Noorazmi MS, … Ismail MI
  • Sarcosporidiosis is a disease caused by intracellular protozoan parasites, namely, Sarcocystis spp. In pigs, three species of Sarcocystis spp. have been recognised, including Sarcocystis meischeriana, Sarcocystis porcifelis and Sarcocystis suihominis. The aim of this study is to determine the prevalence of muscular sarcosporidiosis in pigs using the pepsin digestion technique. A total of 150 fres…
  • Detection of Zoonotic Protozoa Toxoplasma gondii and Sarcocystis suihominis in Wild Boars from Spain. [Journal Article]
    Zoonoses Public Health. 2016 08; 63(5):346-50.Calero-Bernal R, Pérez-Martín JE, … Dubey JP
  • Food safety regulations require the control of the presence of protozoa in meats destined for human consumption. Wild boar (Sus scrofa) meat may constitute a source of zoonoses. A 23.8% (688/2881) seroprevalence of anti-Toxoplasma gondii antibodies and 72.2% (662/910) Sarcocystis sarcocysts prevalence were detected among wild boars hunted in Southwestern areas of Spain. Identity of Sarcocystis sp…
  • Unraveling Sarcocystis miescheriana and Sarcocystis suihominis infections in wild boar. [Journal Article]
    Vet Parasitol. 2015 Sep 15; 212(3-4):100-4.Coelho C, Gomes J, … Vieira-Pinto M
  • Sarcocystis species are worldwide spread cyst-forming protozoa that can infect wild boar but little is known about the prevalence of these parasites. In this study we assessed the prevalence of Sarcocystis spp. infections in wild boars from northeastern Portugal, for which novel PCR testing assays targeting Sarcocystis genus, S. miescheriana and S. suihominis were implemented, and risk factors po…
  • Human infections with Sarcocystis species. [Review]
    Clin Microbiol Rev. 2015 Apr; 28(2):295-311.Fayer R, Esposito DH, Dubey JP
  • Recurrent outbreaks of muscular sarcocystosis among tourists visiting islands in Malaysia have focused international attention on sarcocystosis, a disease once considered rare in humans. Sarcocystis species require two hosts, definitive and intermediate, to complete their life cycle. Humans can serve as definitive hosts, with intestinal sarcocystosis for two species acquired from eating undercook…
  • Unusual case presentation of intestinal Sarcocystis hominis infection in a healthy adult. [Journal Article]
    JMM Case Rep. 2014 Dec; 1(4):e004069.Nimri L
  • CONCLUSIONS: The unusual presentation of intestinal sarcocystis described in this case is very rare. The clinical signs and size and morphology of both oocysts and sarcocysts observed in concentrated wet mounts of stool helped in the definitive diagnosis. The food ingested prior to the appearance of symptoms was important in making the definitive diagnosis of the parasite as S. hominis, as well as the incubation period and treatment.
  • Sarcocystis and sarcocystosis in India: status and emerging perspectives. [Review]
    J Parasit Dis. 2013 Apr; 37(1):1-10.Chhabra MB, Samantaray S
  • Sarcocystis spp. are a group of tissue cyst-forming coccidia which infect a vast range of animals as well as human beings. Found frequently in animal carcasses at slaughter, undermining their value, they have also been found associated with clinical disease. Dogs and cats are involved in the transmission. Studies in India point to a vast reservoir of infection with high prevalence rates in variou…
  • Cyclospora cayetanensis, a food- and waterborne coccidian parasite. [Review]
    Vet Parasitol. 2004 Dec 09; 126(1-2):73-90.Mansfield LS, Gajadhar AA
  • Food- and waterborne coccidia including Cryptosporidium parvum, Cyclospora cayetanensis, Sarcocystis hominis and Sarcocystis suihominis, and Isospora belli are cyst-forming apicomplexan protozoa that cause intracellular infections, predominantly in the epithelial cells of the intestine. They are transmitted by oocysts from person-to-person by the fecal-oral route or via contaminated water or food…
  • Sarcocystis spp. in human infections. [Review]
    Clin Microbiol Rev. 2004 Oct; 17(4):894-902, table of contents.Fayer R
  • Sarcocystis species are intracellular protozoan parasites with an intermediate-definitive host life cycle based on a prey-predator relationship. Asexual stages develop in intermediate hosts after they ingest the oocyst stage from definitive-host feces and terminate with the formation of intramuscular cysts (sarcocysts). Sarcocysts in meat eaten by a definitive host initiate sexual stages in the i…
  • [Parasitological risks--from animal husbandry to food and humans]. [Journal Article]
    Dtsch Tierarztl Wochenschr. 2003 Aug; 110(8):326-8.Schnieder T
  • Livestock management influences the infection risk with parasites. Extensive outdoor management increases the well being of the animals, but may also increase the infection risk with vector or intermediate host transmitted parasites. Several parasites can be transmitted by food. Trichinellosis again represents an increasing threat to human health by newly discovered species, new reservoir hosts a…
  • Preliminary identification of an intestinal coccidian parasite in man. [Journal Article]
    J Egypt Soc Parasitol. 1998 Dec; 28(3):807-14.el Naga IF, Negm AY, Awadalla HN
  • An unidentified coccidian parasite was observed in saline faecal smears of five immunocompromised patients. Very few of these organisms were observed in the oocystic stage. They were oval in shape with rounded edges and contained two sporulated sporocysts, 7.5-9.5 um in diameter with a nipple like projection. They are smaller than sporocysts of Sarcocystis hominis and suihominis. For further iden…
