Isospora suis had 3 asexual and 1 sexual intra-intestinal conventional life cycle. The first asexual generation was most prominent at 2 days p.i. (post inoculation). The use of Isospora suis, a sister taxon to T. gondii and the causative agent of piglet coccidiosis, could provide a solution for this. In the present. I. suis were seen within the intestinal epithelium and oocysts were recovered from the and identified a new species of porcine coccidia as Isospora suis [2].
