The story of Filaria bancrofti. Part II. Metamorphosis of W. bancrofti in the mosquito and filarial periodicity



The story of Filaria bancrofti. Part II. Metamorphosis of W. bancrofti in the mosquito and filarial periodicity



Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene 62(4): 85-94



In this second paper of the series, Manson-Bahr deals with the development in the mosquito from microfilaria to infective larva, the variation in suitability of different species of mosquitoes as hosts of W. bancrofti, the emergence of the infective larva from the proboscis of the mosquito and its penetration through the skin of man, chitinization of larvae in the mosquito, and the phenomenon of microfilarial periodicity with theories of its causation and of the physiological and pharmacological stimuli which can influence the numbers of micro-fUariae in the peripheral circulation. W. A. F. Webber.
