  • Description:
    Why track Cryptosporidium transmission in the U.S.? -- Why is molecular tracking of Cryptosporidium needed? -- What is CryptoNet? -- Potential public health impact -- How molecular tracking and CryptoNet can help -- Technical aspects.

    In response to the inability of traditional clinical diagnostics to distinguish Cryptosporidium species, genotypes, and subtypes and increased national reporting of cryptosporidiosis, CDC is developing CryptoNet, the first molecular tracking system for a parasitic infection. CryptoNet will be a multidisciplinary, molecular-based surveillance system built on the common BioNumerics platform successfully used by PulseNet and CaliciNet. CryptoNet planning is aimed at the efficient use of existing infrastructure to facilitate the systematic collection and molecular characterization of Cryptosporidium isolates to further understand cryptosporidiosis epidemiology.
