Attenuation of the virulence of the M strain of Plasmodium cynomolgi during prolonged multiplication in splenectomized rhesus monkeys.

Abstract

The primary data in this report showed that prolonged multiplication of the M strain of Plasmodium cynomolgi in splenectomized rhesus monkeys led frequently to emergence of parasites whose virulence for monkeys with intact spleens was markedly attenuated while that for splenectomized monkeys was unimpaired.
