Cyclospora and Cyclosporiasis: Epidemiology, Diagnosis, Detection, and Control reviews 22 species of Cyclospora and discusses Cyclospora cayetanensis infection in humans. The book provides comprehensive coverage on their taxonomy and biology, molecular characteristics, and transmission of the parasite, providing researchers, clinicians, public health, and food safety officials with basic data on the epidemiology of the Cyclospora spp. or Cyclospora cayetanensis, along with strategies to monitor large-scale outbreaks. Sections also cover clinical symptoms, diagnostic methods, means of treatment and prevention, hazards, common means of transmission, and self-protection measures.
- Provides the taxonomy of 22 species of Cyclospora (including two newly identified Cyclospora species)
- Covers the scenarios and characteristics of recent epidemics in the world, susceptible populations, and risk factors in transmission
- Summarizes recent developments in detection methods of Cyclospora spp. or Cyclospora cayetanensis in humans, animals and the environment
