Advances in Parasitology, Vol. 66 by David Rollinson, S.I. Hay

By David Rollinson, S.I. Hay

First released in 1963, Advances in Parasitology comprises complete and updated stories in all components of curiosity in modern parasitology.

Advances in Parasitology contains scientific reports on parasites of significant effect, resembling Plasmodium falciparum and trypanosomes. The sequence additionally comprises reports of extra conventional components, similar to zoology, taxonomy, and existence historical past, which form present pondering and functions.

Eclectic volumes are supplemented by way of thematic volumes on a number of issues together with distant Sensing and Geographical details platforms in Epidemiology and The Evolution of Parasitism--A phylogenetic viewpoint.

Example text

Anophelines may or may not show a high degree of susceptibility to exotic strains of parasite’ (Boyd, 1940a), and the practical implications of strain infectivity were seen to extend well beyond malariatherapy clinics. At Horton Hospital, ‘results indicate that persons carrying gametocytes of P. falciparum of tropical origin would be unlikely to cause any outbreak of fresh cases of malaria in this country through the agency of our English maculopennis. On the other hand, our four English anophelines become infected when fed on tropical strains of P.

And] immunity develops against the predominating strain, but, since there will be some overlapping of the antigenic patterns, there may also be some, possibly transient, cross-immunity against other strains. When later there is another discharge of mixed strains from the depot, the immunity that has developed against the first strain will prevent the development of the erythrocytic schizogony cycle by that strain, and another strain will predominate; this goes on until immunity has developed against all the strains present .

Relapses occurred later and less frequently after treatment of extended clinical attacks than was the case in those attacks terminated prior to extensive clinical malaria’ (Jeffery, 1956). Furthermore, ‘an important factor in relapsing malaria may be multiple mosquito bites involving perhaps a diversity of strains of the parasite . . , 1946). If so, perhaps, ‘every second, third or fourth infected Anopheles mosquito bite which is prevented means the avoidance of one, two or three relapses later on’ (Horing, 1947), with different strains.
