Abstract Guinea-pigs were inoculated with Entamoeba histolytica strains isolated from cases of amoebic liver abscess, amoebic dysentery and asymptomatic cyst passers and the strains were classified in zymodemes by isoenzyme electrophoresis. It was observed that certain non-pathogenic zymodemes were potentially pathogenic for the guinea-pigs. The relationship of zymodemes and virulence in laboratory animals is discussed.
