Abstract

The extent to which anopheline mosquitoes infected with the parasites of human malaria can be depended upon to infect the patients to whom they are applied is a matter of considerable importance in their use in malaria therapy, as well as a matter of distinct epidemiological significance. Observations made in our service up to the end of 1935 have been analyzed from the standpoint of possible interrelationship between the following factors:

  • (a)  The number of infected mosquitoes employed in the inoculation.
  • (b)  The qualitative character of the infection, i.e., the per cent infected in the lots to which infected mosquitoes belonged, and
  • (c)  The quantitative character of the infection, i.e., the cyst density on the stomachs of the infected mosquitoes of the several lots.
  • (d)  Inoculations and takes from the use of infected mosquitoes on white patients, and inoculations and takes from the use of infected mosquitoes on negroes.
