Saucedo 3F. Amoebiasis is a parasitosis caused by free-living amoebae that are able to survive in an autonomous state in all natural environments. The objectives of this study were to quantify the free-living amoebae present in different raw waters used for drinking water production, and to assess the effectiveness of different treatments applied for drinking water production and distribution in removing or inactivating these amoebae.

Only comments written in English can be processed. Some of these amoebae can host bacterial parasites, and thus potentially act as reservoirs and vehicles for a number of pathogens.
