Abstract

Abstract

infected , taken from a group of mosquitoes which had been used to challenge recipients of (NANP)-TT vaccine, were tested for sporozoite content by an immunoradiometric assay. Seventy-six percent were infected with mean and median sporozoite equivalents per mosquito of 220,994 and 217,398, respectively (SD = 54,911). This sporozoite density is greater than that usually found in the field. These data suggest that this challenge for evaluating sporozoite vaccines is a demanding test of immunity.
