Abstract

Summary

  • 1.  The use of media treated with streptomycin or penicillin increased the number of positive cultures of obtained from stool specimens containing cysts.
  • 2.  It seemed that the favorable influence on amebic cultivation was due to the inhibition of the mixed bacterial flora induced by these drugs.
  • 3.  Streptomycin suppressed the aerobic bacteria in some of the cultures and it was observed that slants of medium overlaid with serum-saline supported the growth of certain anaerobic bacteria under aerobic conditions.
  • 4.  In some instances, failure of amebic cultivation may have been related to antibiotic influences created by the microbiologic population.
