The immune status of the individuals living in the Delhi area of northern India where is predominant is described. The majority of the individuals who were acutely infected with had antibodies against crude blood-stage antigen and the recombinant antigen, PV9. In contrast, the peripheral blood mononuclear cells of the majority of these individuals did not show proliferation in the presence of either of these antigens.

Such an immune status of individuals living in endemic areas should be taken into account in the future in developing malaria vaccines.
