To investigate the role of amebic proteinases and host leukocytes, we studied amebiasis experimentally in the rat testis. The degree of inflammation and necrosis produced by different strains was correlated with proteinase activity and with zymograms. Intratesticular injection of axenically grown trophozoites of a pathogenic strain (HM-1 ofEntamoeba… CONTINUE READING
