Abstract

This study describes a neonatal mouse model of Giardia infection for development of novel antigiardials. Mice were infected with the axenically cultured Assemblage A BAH2c2 strain, with 105 trophozoites per animal recovered. This model proved to be robust and consistent for use in preliminary drug efficacy trials and drug development.
