The strains of entamoeba were from human sources and consisted of two from hill country where little natural pathogenicity was apparent, two from acute cases of disease in lowland country and one from a chronic case of disease in lowland country. The organisms were cultivated by Dobell's method and inoculated into the experimental kittens either into the ileum or the rectum.
