For the experiments, rats were distributed in six groups (six animals each): 1) control; 2) control infected with trophozoites; 3) control vehicle (ascorbic acid 0.1% in phosphates buffer solution pH 7.0); 4) control vehicle infected with trophozoites; 5) chemically sympathectomized; and 6) chemically sympathectomized and inoculated with trophozoites.
Trophozoites appear early, slowly moving through the agar with a contractile motion as they ingest the E.
