Drug sensitivity studies during a highland malaria epidemic in Kenya.
(University of Nairobi., 1992-07)
IFN-gamma and delayed-type hypersensitivity are associated with cutaneous leishmaniasis in vervet monkeys following secondary rechallenge with Leishmania major.
(University of Nairobi., 1992)
IFN-gamma levels and delayed-type hypersensitivity (DTH) responses were evaluated in vervet monkeys, following secondary infection with Leishmania major (L. major). The animals had previously been vaccinated with leishmanial ...
Bloodfeeding behavior of Anopheles gambiae s.l. and Anopheles funestus in Kilifi District, Kenya.
(University of Nairobi., 1993-06)
Blood meal samples were tested by ELISA for 534 Anopheles gambiae s.l. and 76 Anopheles funestus collected from 25 sites in Kilifi District, Kenya. Human IgG was detected in 94.4% of the An. gambiae s.l. and in 90.8% of ...
Comparative determination of Plasmodium falciparum sporozoite rates in Afrotropical Anopheles from Kenya by dissection and ELISA.
(University of Nairobi., 1991-08)
The Plasmodium falciparum rate was determined by microscopical examination of one salivary gland (three lobes) and by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) of the other salivary gland in each of 1580 Anopheles mosquitoes ...
Low-level Plasmodium falciparum transmission and the incidence of severe malaria infections on the Kenyan coast.
(University of Nairobi., 1993-08)
The transmission of Plasmodium falciparum was studied in relation to the incidence of severe malaria infections at Sokoke and Kilifi town, Kilifi District, Kenya. Intensive mosquito sampling during a one-year period yielded ...
Development of Leishmania major in Phlebotomus duboscqi and Sergentomyia schwetzi (Diptera: Psychodidae).
(University of Nairobi., 1990-07)
The extrinsic development of Leishmania major was observed in 2 man-biting sand flies, Phlebotomus duboscqi, a known vector, and Sergentomyia schwetzi, an assumed non-vector. Flies fed on a leishmanial lesion on the nose ...
Experimental transmission of Leishmania major to vervet monkeys (Cercopithecus aethiops) by bites of Phlebotomus duboscqi (Diptera: Psychodidae).
(University of Nairobi., 1990-03)
Experimental transmission of Leishmania major to vervet monkeys (Cercopithecus aethiops) was accomplished by bites of Phlebotomus duboscqi sandflies. Three-day-old, laboratory-reared P. duboscqi were fed on leishmanial ...
Evaluation of light traps for sampling anopheline mosquitoes in Kilifi, Kenya.
(University of Nairobi., 1993-09)
Anopheline mosquitoes were sampled inside houses, where residents slept under untreated bednets, by CDC light traps and human-biting catches to evaluate light traps as a means for determining human exposure to malaria ...
Cultivation of Plasmodium falciparum parasites in a serum-free medium
(University of Nairobi., 1993-09)
The elimination of serum from Plasmodium falciparum culture media could decrease costs, enhance procurement, and improve the feasibility of large-scale production of parasite material. We provide a semi-defined, serum-free ...
Vector-related case-control study of severe malaria in Kilifi District, Kenya
A case-control study examined vector-related and environmental parameters associated with severe malaria in Kilifi District along the coast of Kenya. Over an 11-month period, 119 children identified with severe malaria ...
