Abstract

Abstract

The Santa Lucia strain of and the monkey are proposed as models for the testing of sporozoite vaccines and transmission-blocking vaccines. Approximately 85% of splenectomized monkeys were infected when fed upon by 10 or more heavily infected mosquitoes. Sporozoite-induced infections in monkeys with or without previous infection with readily infected mosquitoes, thus making them candidates for testing transmission-blocking vaccines.
