Medication of chicks with 70p.p.m. arprinoeid in the food, starting 2 days prior to inoculation with Eimeria tenella, resulted in decreased oocyst production and oocyst sporulation. The main morphological alteration seen during the development of the second-generation schizont was a reduction in the number of second-generation merozoites due to incomplete merogony, resulting in large masses of vacuolated residual cytoplasm. In places around the developing macrogamete the integrity of the parasitophorous vacuole was lost by either the host cell limiting membrane making contact with the parasite pellicle, or the disruption of one or both of these surfaces apparently brought about by the intervention of the host cell mitochondria. Thirty p.p.m. arprinocid reduced sporulation of the oocysts of E. brunetti and caused enlargement of the perinuclear space in the late merozoites and swelling of the endoplasmic reticulum around wall-forming bodies II.
