Isospora suis had 3 asexual and 1 sexual intra-intestinal conventional life cycle. The first asexual generation was most prominent at 2 days p.i. (post inoculation). The use of Isospora suis, a sister taxon to T. gondii and the causative agent of piglet coccidiosis, could provide a solution for this. In the present. I. suis were seen within the intestinal epithelium and oocysts were recovered from the and identified a new species of porcine coccidia as Isospora suis [2].

J Parasitol 68 5: Cabreiro F, Gems Sis. Z Parasitenkd 36 3: Directly after ingestion, sporulated oocysts undergo excystation and sporozoites invade the small intestine epithelium 1228 to reproduce within a parasitophorus vacuole 29 A Oocysts are excreted with feces and undergo sporulation in the environment. Parasitol Res 6: Control is based on minimizing the dose of syis ingested.

Diagnosis Diagnosis can be made most reliably by identifying the coccidia in histologic sections. It is best attempted on piglets that have been sick two to three days so that oocysts have had time to develop.

Cystoisospora suis completes its life cycle within 5—6 days Front Cell Infect Microbiol 2: It is currently unclear whether the detected immunoglobulins have a protective iospora by themselves or are merely markers for protection conveyed by other, not yet explored, mechanisms. Effects of experimentally induced Isospora suis infection on morbidity, mortality and weight gains in nursing pigs.
