White albino mice (NMRI strain) were infected orally with seven strains of Giardia lamblia and the extent of infection was assessed from day 5 to day 21 by trophozoite count per cm. of small intestine. The trophozoite counts reached the maximum on day 11 and then started declining. Later mice were infected with seven more strains of Giardia lamblia and the infected animals were divided in two groups. One group of each strain were kept at 37oC and the other at 25oC to 25oC. The mean trophozoite counts in heat stressed animals were significantly higher on days 9, 11, 13, 15 and 18.
