Ann Bishop was an eminent protozoologist and parasitologist who spent almost her entire career in Cambridge where she was a Fellow of Girton College for nearly 60 years. Her main work was concerned with the development of drug resistance in the protozoan parasites that cause the disease malaria, still among the most important agents of mortality in the world today. 



Further Experiments on the Action of Emetine in Cultures of Entamoeba histolytica

In 1926 two of us published the results of a long series of experiments on the toxic action of the alkaloids of ipecacuanha in cultures of several species of entozoic amoebae, which showed clearly that the full specific action of emetine is only disclosed if the alkAloid is allowed to act for a sufficient time.

Experiments on the Action of Emetine in Cultures of Entamoeba Coli.

It is concluded that emetine is about 16 times as toxic in vitro to E. histolytica as it is toE.

A Note upon Trichomonas sanguisugae Alexeieff 1911

Two trichomonads from the horse-leech Haemopis sanguisuga are described, one of which is characterised by its four anterior flagella of unequal length and its poorly developed axostyle.

Researches on the Intestinal Protozoa of Monkeys and Man

It has been found impossible to distinguish various strains of “E. coli” living in macaques, a marmoset, and men, by any recognizable specific feature, and it is concluded that no specific difference actually exists between any of them.

A Description of Embadomonas n.spp. from Blatta orientalis, Rana temporaria, Bufo vulgaris, Salamandra maculosa; with a Note upon the “Cyst” of Trichomonas batrachorum

Embadomonas blattae a new species from the hind gut of Blatta orientalis is described, differs from other known species of this flagellate in shape, and in absence of a definite karyosome, and is proposed to call E. dobelli.

The Effect of Increased and Decreased Oxygen Pressure upon the Intestinal Protozoa of Macacus rhesus

In his experiments upon the toxicity of oxygen for protozoa Cleveland (1925, a, b, c) was able to kill the intestinal protozoa of Termites, without injuring the host, by increasing the pressure of

Notes upon Sieboldiellina planariarum (Siebold), a Ciliate Parasite of Planaria torva

Sieboldiellina planariarum is a large astomatous ciliate parasitic in the gut of the freshwater Triclad Planaria torva. The writer's attention was first called to it at Cambridge in 1923 whilst
