The studies of Dobell (1931), Kessel (1928), and others established the fact that the “histolytica-like” amebae found in monkeys are identical with in man. While it has been shown by many investigators that this parasite can be transmitted to a wide variety of hosts, in none of these can the infection be considered a normal one. Thus, dogs, kittens, rats, pigs, rabbits, guinea pigs and even chicks have been infected experimentally with . But in such cases infection is usually achieved only under special conditions. Also, the regular production of cysts is rarely seen, and it seems logical to assume that cyst-production here is good evidence of a normal host-parasite relationship For a proper understanding of the host-parasite relationships of the parasite must be studied in its normal host.
