Drug Resistance in Protozoa

Treatment failures have been recorded in the chemotherapy of protozoal diseases almost since such therapy began. Failures may have a number of causes, only one of which is true pathogen resistance to

DRUG RESISTANCE IN EIMERIA TENELLA. III. STABILITY OF RESISTANCE TO GLYCARBYLAMIDE.

A glycarbylamide-resistant strain of Eimeria tenella was serially propagated nine times in chickens fed unmedicated mash and then tested for glycarbylamide tolerance in chicks fed mash containing

Tremendous progress was made during the next 15 years with the result that by the mid-1950's malaria had been virtually eradicated in the United States and Western Europe and had been greatly reduced in most of the relatively advanced temperate and subtropical areas.

Drug-resistance in Plasmodium gallinaceum, and the persistence of paludrine-resistance after mosquito transmission

Chickscarrying a latent infection of the normal strain of P. gallinaceum were immune to infection with the paludrine-resistant strain; and conversely chicks carrying a latent infections of the palUDrine- resistant strain were immune with the normal parasite.

Latent infections in avian malaria in relation to the production of drug-resistance

The failure to obtain resistant strains of malaria by prolonged treatment of latent infections with large amounts of drug, lends support to the theory of the origin of resistant strainsof malaria by the selection of resistant mutants.

The experimental treatment of trypanosomiasis in animals

The arsenic preparation which has given the best results is a compound of arsenic and aniline C6H5No2As (meta-arsensaure anilid, atoxyl), a preparation which have of recent years been used intravenously and subcutaneously in the treatment of skin diseases and anaemia.

Pamaquin Resistance in a Strain of Plasmodium gallinaceum and its relationship to Other antimalarial Drugs

A four- to eight-fold increase in resistance to pamaquin has been developed in a strain of Plasmodium gallinaceum in chicks, and an appreciable loss in resistance was observed after it had been maintained in the absence of the drug for a period of 6 months.

STUDIES ON MALARIAL PARASITES : VIII. FACTORS AFFECTING THE GROWTH OF PLASMODIUM KNOWLESI IN VITRO.

Methods have been described for the preparation and sterilization of a synthetic nutrient medium which supports normal growth during one 24 hour asexual cycle of the erythrocytic form of P. knowlesi and certain experiments indicate that in vitro growth is better supported in normal monkey plasma than in plasma from parasitized monkeys.

The proposal to distinguish two classes of drug resistance—those in which the top level of resistance can be obtained in a single step, and those in which it can be acquired only gradually—has clearly a practical importance.
