Research activities on foodborne parasites and related animal infections

Several research activities have been and/or are carried out since the designation of the EURLP, namely:
- Trichinella spp.: the identification of intraspecific genetic variability of Trichinella spiralis and T. britovi, and the evaluation of the use of serology to monitor Trichinella infections in wild boars and/or red foxes;
- Toxoplasma gondii: the identification of oocyst stage specific proteins of this protozoa;
- Anisakidae: the identification and development of analytical methods for the speciation of parasites belonging to this family;
- Echinococcus spp: the identification and development of analytical methods for the speciation of parasites belonging to this genus;
- the barcoding of zoonotic and non zoonotic helminths and protozoa parasitizing domestic animals and foodstuffs;
- Cryptosporidium spp: the development of analytical methods for the speciation of parasites belonging to this genus;
