Summary

Direct staining of Plasmodium berghei with fluorescein-labeled antiserum from infected rodents indicated that these animals are capable of producing an antibody against the parasite. A naturally occurring P. berghei-antibody complex was detected by exposing parasitized erythrocytes from infected mice to fluoresceinlabeled anti-mouse globulin.
