V. Evaluation of Cross-Immunity against Type 1 Dengue Fever in Human Subjects Convalescent from Subclinical Natural Japanese Encephalitis Virus Infection and Vaccinated with 17D Strain Yellow Fever Vaccine
Hospitalized patients with various diseases and taking various medications were surveyed for their attractiveness to mosquitoes by a mosquito-probing technique. No drug was found that induced unattractiveness, and no disease was associated with unattractiveness, with the possible exception of untreated myxedema. Vitamins, expecially B1, in biting and probing tests were found inactive systemic mosquito repellents.
