Dr. F. Hawking and Miss A. M. Burroughs in a letter to Nature1 state that they have confirmed the reports of the American workers, Williams and Brown2, and Scott (private communication), regarding the transmission of L. carinii to laboratory (piebald) rats, and that in addition they transferred the infection to hamsters and white mice.

Transmission of Litomosoides carinii to Mice and Hamsters
This work has shown that infection was transmitted from one animal to another by means of the tropical rat mite Liponyssus bacoti, and provided a colony of the mites and some infected cotton rats. Expand
