was studied in monkeys (66 , 2 , 12 , 4 , and 1 ). Prepatent periods for 30 sporozoite transmissions by , , and mosquitoes ranged from 10 to 48 days with a median of 15.5 days. In rhesus monkeys, mean maximum parasite counts for intact animals were 181,970/μL; for splenectomized animals, the mean maximum parasite count was 1,167,890/μL.
