Abstract

Abstract

Mice infected with and then challenged with trophozoites by intracecal injection showed a higher rate of amebic infection and were more susceptible to amebic tissue invasion compared with controls. Amebic ulceration occurred principally at the site of attachment of the worms to the cecal mucosa. The possible mechanisms of this interaction and its relevance in man are discussed.
