Abstract

Observations on the effect of certain vitamins on the multiplication of Eimeria nieschulzi in its rat host have indicated that under certain conditions the infection may be significantly modified by feeding these materials. Vitamin B1 had a moderately restraining effect on the development of the parasite, vitamin B6 strongly enhanced its growth, while the two vitamins fed together limited its increment considerably more stringently than vitamin B1 alone (Becker and Dilworth, 1941). Pantothenic acid, like vitamin B6, enhanced the coccidium-growth-promoting potency of the otherwise unsupplemented ration, and neutralized the growth-inhibiting properties exhibited by the combination of vitamins B1 and B6 (Becker and Smith, 1942). The present study on the effects of riboflavin and nicotinic acid supplements to a particular ration were made in further prosecution of the general problems.
