Dublin, Feb. 16, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Research and Markets has announced the addition of the “Cryptosporidium Forecast for selected Asian Markets 2017-2027” report to their offering.

Cryptosporidium is a microscopic parasite (Apicomplexan oocyst-forming protozoan) that causes the diarrhoeal disease cryptosporidiosis. Both the parasite and the disease are also known as “”Crypto.””

There are 20 different species of Cryptosporidium; however the main two species that infect humans are C. hominis and C. parvum (also found in bovines). Other species that have been found to infect humans, but are rarer, include C. meleagridis, C. felis, C. canis, C. andersoni, C. suis, C. baylei and C. muris. Within each species, multiple sub-types exist (e.g. Ia, Ib etc).

This report provides the current incident population for Cryptosporidium across Selected Asian Markets (Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, and Vietnam) split by gender and 5-year age cohort. Along with the current incidence, the report also contains a disease overview of the risk factors, disease diagnosis and prognosis along with specific variations by geography and ethnicity.
