Abstract
Rodents often live in close association with anthropogenic environments, offering rodent-associated pathogens numerous opportunities for transmission to humans. We screened for zoonotic gastrointestinal pathogens in rodents caught during autumn/winter in human dwellings in rural areas surrounding Uppsala, Sweden. We detected Campylobacter jejuni, Giardia sp., and Cryptosporidium sp. in rodent intestines.
