A nine month entomological study was conducted from August 1989 to April 1990 in Jalpaiguri duars of West Bengal where malaria has been persistent problem. Amongst the anopheline fauna three vector species were recorded; An. minimus was the principal vector supported by A. dirus during the rainy months and An. fluviatilis in dry months. All the three(More)
Attempts have been made to identify the source of blood meals of twenty three anopheline species from various areas of high malaria endemicity in India. Anopheles minimus, Anopheles fluviatilis and Anopheles dirus showed a high propensity for human blood in North-Eastern parts of the country while Anopheles sundicus was found to be anthropophilic in Andaman(More)
A longitudinal study on malaria transmission was conducted from January 1984 to December 1988 in three villages in Boko PHC of Assam, where indoor residual DDT spray was withdrawn during the period of study. Anopheline fauna comprising of 19 species was identified and their seasonal density estimated. Anopheles philippinensis was the predominant species(More)
A longitudinal study on malaria transmission was conducted from January 1983 to December 1988 in two villages of Dimapur PHC in Nagaland. A diverse anopheline fauna comprising of 23 species was identified including three species viz. An. aitkeni, An. bengalensis and An. insulaeflorum which were observed in larval stages only.

Amodiaquine is being used in India for presumptive treatment as an alternative to chloroquine in areas with chloroquine resistant P. falciparum. Keeping in view the toxicity of amodiaquine, studies have been undertaken to evaluate the advantage of the drug over chloroquine in the treatment of P. falciparum malaria. In vivo drug resistance studies were(More)
Drug hypersensitivity is an unpredictable, immunologically mediated adverse reaction, clustered in a genetically predisposed individual. The role of "hapten concept" in immune sensitization has recently been contested by the "pharmacological interaction" hypothesis. After completion of the "human genome project" and with the availability of high-resolution(More)
During 1996, Mewat region of Gurgaon district in Haryana experienced high incidence of Plasmodium falciparum malaria, assuming epidemic proportion in large number of villages affected by floods. Mortality due to fever was also high. In vivo 7 days study amongst 32 febrile P. falciparum infected children of 1 to 14 years age group in flood affected villages(More)
