Abstract

The in vitro cultivation of Pneumocystis carinii in chick lung cell culture made it possible to observe the organism proceeding through its life cycle It provided the foundation for extensive scrocpidcmiologic studies, for in vitro drug screening, and for essential biological, metabolic, and morphologic research, in vitro culture made possible the discovery of P. carinii antigencmia, its biochemical nature, and its relevance to subclinical and clinical infection. Its utility in the presumptive diagnosis of P. carinii pneumonia and in monitoring responses to drug therapy illustrate the value and clinical application of basic research.
