The effect of natural malaria transmission-blocking factors in the blood of Plasmodium falciparum gametocyte carriers was assessed in two types of functional bioassays. In the direct membrane feeding assay (DMFA), a comparison is made between the infectivity of gametocytes from a naturally infected gametocyte carrier in the presence of autologous plasma and the infectivity in the presence of replacement plasma from nonimmune donors. In the standard membrane feeder assay (SMFA), cultured NF54… CONTINUE READING
