Giardia lambila infection in an endemic area was investigated by following 61 infants in a village community for one year. Positive antigiardia antibody titres were acquired between four months to one year and the prevalence of sero-positivity was 27.86 percent. No association was found between positive antibody titre and positive stool examination. Serum antibodies were not a good reflection of infection and hence might not be protective against acquired infection as milk antibodies were.
