Abstract

We have verified for specimens of that an enzymelinked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) used to assess and sporozoite antigen rates gives results comparable to the salivary gland dissection method for estimating sporozoite rates. For 14,150 adults of , captured at five locations in Guatemala, we report sporozoite antigen rates of 0.03–0.57%, which correlate with the malaria prevalences at the study sites. We also present data that suggest that specimens of for the ELISA can be obtained more efficiently by cattle corral collections than by the human bait capture method.
