Summary and Conclusions

The density of and the percentage of infection with the developing stages of the nonperiodic form of are combined into an “index of transmission” in different sites. Evidence is presented, on this basis, that transmission, in American Samoa, is primarily in the bush, along the trails and in the plantations. Transmission within the village proper is of little concern. It is suggested that in other Pacific islands, where this same infection and same mosquito vector occur, the possible role of this same type of environment in the transmission of the disease should be considered.
