Introduction to, and evaluation of, immunoassays in a malaria research institute in Tanzania


, : Introduction to, and evaluation of, immunoassays in a malaria research institute in Tanzania. Transactions of the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene 83(Suppl.): 99-100

Various immunoassays have been introduced into, and evaluated at, the Amani Medical Centre in north-east Tanzania. These include immunoblotting to identify mosquito bloodmeals, immunoradiometric and immunoenzymatic assays to assess the presence of circumsporozoite protein in mosquitoes, and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays to measure antibodies to circumsporozoite antibody in people. The assays were shown to be reliable and practicable for use in the study of malaria epidemiology.

Background: Highland areas with naturally less intense malaria transmission may provide models of how lowland areas might become if transmission was permanently reduced by sustained vector control. It has been argued that vector control should not...
