Example text

European vectors transported to Africa gave a similar result: ‘experiments in Garki, Nigeria, with A. atroparvus from Italy have shown a refractoriness to infection with the local strain of P. falciparum’ (Ramsdale and Coluzzi, 1975). However, ‘A. gambiae, originating from the Nyanza province of Kenya, was able to transmit the Malayan strains of P. falciparum with no more difficulty than African strains’ (Davey and Robertson, 1957). Accordingly, even the broadest of summaries mentioned exceptions: ‘European strains of P.

Vaccine for malaria’ (Yount and Coggeshall, 1949). , 1950). Furthermore, it began to appear that ‘convalescents from artificially induced falciparum infections usually exhibit a distinct clinical tolerance when artificially reinoculated with a heterologous strain of this parasite, manifested by a shortened period of clinical activity . . [thus] the immunity developed during convalescence from a falciparum infection has an appreciable heterologous value’ (Boyd and Kitchen, 1945). Thus, residents of malaria-endemic countries might experience within a ‘period of time a series of episodes successively involving different strains.

But] any reduction in anopheline density begins by removing layer after layer of these superimposed infections before it cuts down the amount of malaria, or number of infected persons’ (Hackett, 1937). Because ‘each new strain, like a new species, finds the host defenceless and initiates a train of events culminating in an acute attack, and a period of gametocyte production . . chronic malaria, then, is due to overlapping infections of different species and heterologous strains of plasmodia.
