DiseaseH01099 Trichinosis
CommentFood-borne zoonotic parasite.
Most common cause of human trichinellosis.
Shows little host specificity among mammals, completes its entire life cycle in a single host, does not have a free-living stage and lives as an intracellular parasite within a single striated muscle cell.
