Abstract

Cryptosporidium parvum (HNJ-1 strain, genotype 2) merozoites were released from oocysts directly during an incubation and excystation procedure without bleach treatment. They were polymorphic, mostly spindle-shaped; others were bean shaped, actively motile, and underwent division. Merozoites survived for short time–period in an in vitro culture system, but could not be established in a subsequent cultivation effort in RPMI medium.
