Germ-free guinea pigs were inoculated intracecally with Entamoeba histolytica and the enteric flora derived from a human patient with acute amebic colitis. Aanimals were killed at post-inoculation intervals of 7 to 12 days. The mode of penetration of cecal epithelium by the ameba was examined by light and electron microscopy. The following sequence was reconstructed from numerous individual observations. When the amebae were in moderately close proximity to the brush, border, the microvilli… CONTINUE READING
