Up to 200 laboratory reared Anopheles dirus mosquitoes were fed on each of 496 symptomatic Thai men who had patent, naturally acquired Plasmodium vivax gametocytaemia. Mean gametocyte densities were 455/mm3 (range: 0-3281), geometric mean oocyst number was 9 (0-142), mean frequency of infection was 43% (0-100%), and mean sporozoite number in salivary glands was 9525 (0-285,000). There was little relation between gametocyte density and either oocyst number or frequency of mosquito infection… CONTINUE READING
