Abstract

Published work showed that third-stage larvae (L-3s) escape into water from dead or dying, -infected, . The present study revealed the same escape phenomenon among -infected , and , and among -infected and . L-3s maintained in water or in Lum's solution for 3 hours retained infectivity when tested in orally or subcutaneously exposed jirds; furthermore, L-3s recovered from mosquitoes dead for 24 to 48 hours were also infective by either portal of entry in jirds. Since L-3s may escape and remain infective in the field, it is conceivable that natural filarial infections might thus be acquired orally by definitive hosts.
