mosquitoes transmitted blood-induced infection from three night monkeys, , to three other night monkeys and to a Panamanian marmoset, . Mosquito-transmissions of the malaria also were successful from one black spider monkey, , to two other black spider monkeys. Prepatent periods ranged from 14 to 29 days and patent periods from 19 to 37 days. in developed less than 10 parasites per cmm in contrast to maxima of 42,850 and 8,390 per cmm in and on primary infection. Relapse occurred in one and in one after subpatent intervals of 27 and 4 days. The relapse infections were patent for 29 and 24 days and reached maxima of 15,420 and 15,470 parasites per cmm. Mosquitoes were infected from feeding upon each and one . This report of mosquito-transmissions of infection to Panamanian primates appears to be the first of sporozoite-induced human malaria in monkeys.
