To investigate the impact of transmission on the development of immunity to malaria and on parasite diversity, longitudinal surveys have been conducted for several years in Dielmo and Ndiop, 2 neighbouring Senegalese villages with holo- and mesoendemic transmission conditions, respectively. We analysed Plasmodium falciparum msp1 block 2 and msp2 genotypes of isolates collected from 58% of the Dielmo villagers during the same week as those studied recently from Ndiop. Allele frequencies differed… CONTINUE READING
