AbstractIn today ’s world, broadband multimedia services are growing at a rapid pace. It is very much essential to secure data in financial, defense, health care, government, and marketing services. To ensure the data from eavesdroppers, the physical layer security (channel coding, modulation schemes, and diversit y techniques, etc.) is one of the best solutions. The security attributes at this level reduce maintenance, operational cost, and complexity without affecting the quality of service. Physical layer security with cryptographic techniques makes it well suited for transferring multimedia data through u nsecure...

GyörkeAbstractCryptosporidiosis is one of the most common zoonosis worldwide, causing intestinal infection to both humans and livestock. The purpose of this study was to assess whether the level of anti-C. parvum IgG antibodies transferred through colostrum from dams to newborn calves impacts the susceptibility to cryptosporidiosis. A number of 50 dams and their healthy newborns were included in the study. Colostrum samples were collected withi...

Abstract Cryptosporidiosis acutely impacts the digestive and/or respiratory tract of the birds in many species of various orders. More importantly, it is also well known as a significant zoonotic disease, which can lead to diarrhea in humans and livestock. Regarding increasing demand for free-range products and increasing the number of free-range poultry farms, the present paper evaluated histopathological and molecular detection of Cryptosporidium baileyi and Cryptosporidium parvum in free-range and commercial broiler chickens in the north part of Iran. For this purpose, 100 fecal and tissue samples of the chicke...

Abstract Giardiasis and cryptosporidiosis are recognized by the WHO as important emerging diseases of the 21st century. Symptoms are similar and include diarrhoea and vomiting, which may be severe, even life-threatening, for the immunocompromised and children under five years of age. Between 2013 and 2017, the Institute for Public Health in Serbia recorded 10 waterborne epidemics that manifested as gastrointestinal disease. Routine testing for enteropathogenic bacteria and viruses did not identify the aetiological agents of these outbreaks. As water is not examined for the presence of protozoa in Serbia, we perfor...

MRI is the best cross-sectional modality to assess crypto-orchidism. Coronal T1W images can show the gubernaculum testes and spermatic cord, which can be followed to locate the undescended testes.  This patient has left undescended testes just beyond the deep ring  locaised on MRI imaging.

(Natural News) For several years, I’ve repeatedly warned people to steer clear of crypto schemes. The crypto space seems to attract some of the most unscrupulous promoters, and people who are looking for quick gains often get suckered into costly arrangements that may not be legit. Now, an FBI investigation has led to the DOJ...

ConclusionsAll three RDTs forCryptosporidium spp. andGiardia duodenalis evaluated in this study have a moderate sensitivity, but sufficient specificity. The main value of the RDTs is within their rapidness and their usefulness as screening assays in surveys for diarrhoea.

Abstract A major obstacle to developing vaccines against cryptosporidiosis, a serious diarrheal disease of children in developing countries, is the lack of rodent models essential to identify and screen protective immunogens. Rodent models commonly used for drug discovery are unsuitable for vaccine development because they either are purposefully immunodeficient or immunosuppressed. Here, we show an immunocompetent intratracheal (IT) rat model infected with sporozoites was found to be susceptible to Cryptosporidium parvum and to Cryptoporidium hominis - the primary cause of human cryptosporidiosis. Here we describ...

The incidence of cryptosporidiosis in Scandinavia has increased dramatically in recent years.  As shown in the following chart, rates in Sweden per 100,000 population are approximately twice those reported in the United States – and almost four-fold those reported in the European Region as a whole.  [1-3] References: Gideon e-Gideon multi-graph tool,   https://www.gideononline.com/cases/multi-graphs/ Berger S.
