Abstract

To determine whether is capable of transmitting to primates, infected nymphal ticks were allowed to feed on five . The monkeys were then followed for at least 60 days with daily thick blood smears for evidence of infection. Patent parasitemia developed in four of the five animals. Prepatent periods were 13, 18, 20, and 28 days. Maximum parasitemia ranged from 83 to 7,068 organisms/mm blood. Splenectomy 15–17 months after exposure to ticks resulted in recurrences of parasitemia in three of the four infected monkeys.
