The degree of susceptibility and levels of infection in ten different strains of Aedes polynesiensis Marks infected with subperiodic Brugia malayi and Brugia pahangi



The degree of susceptibility and levels of infection in ten different strains of Aedes polynesiensis Marks infected with subperiodic Brugia malayi and Brugia pahangi



American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene 29(5): 815-819



Ten strains of Aedes polynesiensis were exposed to subperiodic Brugia malayi or B. pahangi by allowing them to feed on infected gerbils. From 92.1 to 100% of the mosquitoes became infected with B. malayi and 97.5 to 100% with B. pahangi, the mean numbers of infective larvae recovered being 5.64 to 19.89 and 9.48 to 26.79, respectively. Significant differences were discovered in the numbers of infective larvae both between parasites and between strains infected with the same parasite.
