  1. Entamoeba coli is one of many non-pathogenic protozoa found in humans. It is transmitted through fecal-oral contact, and the mature cyst can be found in contaminated water. Typically, these protozoa inhabit the large intestinal tract and can be identified in diagnostic stool specimens. This activity highlights the role of the interprofessional team in the evaluation and treatment of Entamoeba ...

  2. Jul 29, 2019 · Protozoan parasites can infect the human intestinal tract causing serious diseases. In the following article, we focused on the three most prominent intestinal protozoan pathogens, namely, Giardia lamblia, Entamoeba histolytica, and Cryptosporidium parvum. ...

  3. Amebiasis is infection primarily due to Entamoeba histolytica. It is acquired by fecal-oral transmission and can be sexually transmitted by oral-anal contact. Infection is commonly asymptomatic, but symptoms ranging from mild diarrhea to severe dysentery may occur. Extraintestinal infections include liver and rarely brain abscesses.

  4. Entamoeba coli, E. hartmanni, E. polecki, Endolimax nana, and Iodamoeba buetschlii are generally considered nonpathogenic and reside in the large intestine of the human host . Both cysts and trophozoites of these species are passed in stool and considered diagnostic .

  5. Entamoeba histolytica has a feeding, replicative trophozoite stage, and a dormant cyst stage morphologically indistinguishable from the non-pathogenic E. dispar and E. moshkovskii. Differentiation may therefore not be made in routine clinical diagnosis, which traditionally relies on bright field microscopy.

  6. Intestinal Infection. Nitroimidazole derivatives are the drugs of choice for treatment of amoebic colitis, as they are very effective against the trophozoite form of the parasite (metronidazole ...

  7. Nov 1, 1999 · E. dispar, Entamoeba moshkovskii, Entamoeba coli, Entamoeba hartmanni, and Endolimax nana are nonpathogenic parasites of the human intestine. There has been no correlation established between infection with these organisms and gastrointestinal symptoms, and antiamebic treatment is not warranted.
