Abstract

Summary

The present experimental results indicate strongly that acute amebiasis in the kitten is probably not the result of infection with the parasite as usually conceived. It is possible that in the kitten the severity of experimental infection with may be modified by variable characteristics of the individual animal, its nutritional status, the presence of intercurrent infection and the psycho-physical response to stress resulting in an overwhelming infection in a species of animal which under more normal conditions may be only moderately susceptible to infection with the ameba.
