Abstract

Summary

Two colonies of normal human body lice have been successfully raised by serial feeding through artificial membranes on meals of sterile, defibrinated, hemolyzed human blood, with and without the addition of 10 units each of penicillin and streptomycin per milliliter. In the first instance the experiment was terminated after forty-eight days, when third generation nymphs were hatching and feeding. In the second experiment, second generation nymphs were feeding and developing normally at the time of its discontinuance on day 27.
