Entamoeba dispar
(parasite)

Entamoeba dispar is a protozoan parasite of the Entamoebidae family and closely related to Entamoeba hystolytica. The single-celled amoeba often colonises the human large intestine. Usually, a colonisation with Entamoeba dispar does not cause any symptoms and hence remains undetected in the majority of cases.

Transmission mainly occurs via contaminated water and food.

For a successful inactivation of parasites, specific disinfectants effective against parasites are required.
