Abstract

Summary

In testing the hypothesis that certain euphorbiaceous plants may be the reservoirs of Carrión's disease in Peru, the following results were obtained:

  • 1.  Cultures of latex of and from the Peruvian verruga zone were completely negative for .
  • 2.  Attempts to infect seedlings of both plants with cultures failed completely.
  • 3.  The growth of in vitro is inhibited by the presence of latex in amounts greater than 1 part in 50.
  • 4.  There appears to be little likelihood that these plants could serve as the disease reservoirs.
