Abstract Successful establishment and propagation of the local strain of Entamoeba histolytica in vitro in Nigeria is described, and its applicability to further studies is discussed. Various culture media were assessed and the most suitable defined. The preliminary findings in a study of the effects of sera from different groups of individuals on the in vitro culture of the local strain of Entamoeba histolytica have also been briefly described.
