Abstract

During a 13-month study on the ecology of malaria vectors in 5 villages in southern Thailand, Anopheles specimens collected by human-bait, bovid-bait and light traps were tested for the presence of Plasmodium vivax and P. falciparum circumsporozoite antigen by ELISA. P. vivax antigen was detected...
