A liquid medium without blood or serum was developed for cultivation of hemoflagellates. To a basic LIT medium containing liver infusion broth and tryptose, a mixture of RPMI 1640 and Medium 199 was added. This combination permitted high parasite yields useful for biochemical and immunological studies.
