Abstract

The susceptibility of Anopheles aquasalis check for this species in other resources (F3 generation) and An. darlingi (F1 generation) to Plasmodium vivax check for this species in other resources circumsporozoite protein phenotypes from a limited number of blood samples of malaria patients in Belém, state of Pará, Brazil, was examined. A polymerase chain reaction was used to determine the P. vivax phenotypes in blood samples and the blood-fed infected mosquitoes were dissected and tested by ELISA. In all patient infections, more infected An. aquasalis and An. darlingi were positive for VK210 compared with VK247.
