Patient discussion about parasitize

Q. is an Amoeba dangerous?? and how can i get rid of it? my son is in Peru, he called and told me he got an Amoeba..i have no idea if it's dangerous or not, and how to get rid of it. and what kinds of food he needs to avoid.I'll appreciate help!

A. oooo...an Amoeba is a nasty one...but not so dangerous! it's a one celled parasite which gets into your body if you eat in restaurants that the cook doesn't wash hands after going to the bathroom..it multiplies in your intestine and makes you diarrhea like hell. but if you'll treat it right it will go away as nothing happened. if you don't it can give you liver cyst. and that's not good. he should see a Dr.

After determining correct shape of the functional response parameter a (attack constant) and b (asymptote of functional response curve or maximum number of hosts parasitized) were estimated using non-linear least squares regression procedure in SAS computer software and the values were used in Holling (1965) disc equationWhere Ne = the number of host parasitized by a parasitiodper unit time a attack rate of a parasitiod N is the initial number of host provided to parasitiod at the onset of the experiment T is the total exposure time in the experiment and Th is the handling time for each host attacked.
