GD Biotech is thrilled to share with you its latest publication entitled “ Molecular epidemiology, genetic diversity and transmission of the enteric protozoan parasite Blastocystis sp. In the Northern Egypt population”, published in Pathogens.
With our longtime partner of the “Ecology and Pathophysiology of Intestinal Protozoa” team at Pasteur Institute of Lille, we are excited to contribute to this comprehensive study on the prevalence of Blastocystis sp. in Northern Egypt. The findings, derived from a molecular epidemiological survey of 825 participants, unveil an overall prevalence of 72.4%, shedding light on its widespread circulation in the region. Surprisingly, our results unveiled unique subtypes (ST10 and ST14) never before reported in North Africa, hinting at potential zoonotic transmission.
