Abstract

Background: Avian malaria parasites (Plasmodium spp.) and related haemosporidians (Haemosporida) are responsible for diseases which can be severe and even lethal in avian hosts. These parasites cause not only blood pathology, but also damage various organs due to extensive exo-erythrocytic...

Abstract

Plasmodium (Novyella) homopolare, a newly described Plasmodium species, was found in a wide range of Passeriformes species in California, USA, and Colombia. This parasite infected more than 20% of the sampled bird community (N=399) in California and was found in 3.6% of birds sampled (N=493) in...

Abstract

The relationship between malaria transmission intensity and efficiency is important for malaria epidemiology, for the design of randomized control trials that measure transmission or incidence as end points, and for measuring and modelling malaria transmission and control. Five kinds of studies...

Abstract

Despite our efforts at malaria control, malaria remains one of our most serious and deadly diseases. The failure of control stems in part from the parasite's intense transmission in many areas and from the emergence and spread of resistance of the malaria parasites and their mosquito vectors...

Abstract

Blood samples from 655 passerine birds were collected in rainforests of Ghana and Cameroon and examined both by microscopy and polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based techniques. The overall prevalence of Plasmodium spp. was 46.6%, as determined by combining the results of both these diagnostic...

Abstract

The second edition of Bordet's book on immunity has appeared after an interval of 20 years. Bordet has largely contributed to our conception of the subject and in this work there is revealed a breadth of outlook which is refreshing. The study of immunity is treated as the story of a conflict, for...

Abstract

The optimum method of transmission for a blood parasite is brought about when it is withdrawn from the blood by an insect and is reintroduced by it into suitable blood. Leaving aside the cases where the insect plays but a mechanical rôle in much the same manner as a syringe needle, cases of...
