The prevalence of naturally acquired multiple infections of Wuchereria bancrofti and human malarias in anophelines






Parasitology 100 Pt 3: 369-375

The prevalence of naturally acquired multiple infections of Wuchereria bancrofti and human malarias in anophelines

Malaria (Plasmodium falciparum and P. vivax) and filaria infection rates were determined for anopheline mosquitoes (collected between 1800 h and 0700 h during January 1986 and March 1987) whilst biting and resting in village houses in Papua New Guinea. The number of anophelines infected with both parasites was greater than expected from the infection rates of each parasite and this difference was significant in resting collections.
