Abstract

Abstract

Sections of paraffin-embedded rhesus liver containing numerous nearly mature exoerythrocytic schizonts of the non-relapsing malaria parasite, , were examined for the presence of hypnozoites by indirect immunofluorescence, employing both homologous and strongly cross-reacting heterologous sera. No hypnozoites or evident hypnozoite equivalents were detected in tissue which, by analogy with results obtained for the relapsing species, , should have contained 35–50 of the uninucleate forms. These observations are presented as additional evidence in favor of the hypnozoite theory of malarial relapse.
