Intestinal damage and symptoms are the apparent result of large numbers of these trophozoites at the surface of the duodenal and jejunal mucosa in the absence of a specific immune response. The ingestion of large numbers of cysts may result in a shortened incubation period; relatively large numbers of organisms may be able t o wreak damage more rapidly with resultant symptoms. On the other hand, ingesting small numbers of cysts may mean a relatively long incubation period, necessary to permit multiplication of sufficient numbers of trophozoites t o incite damage.
