Abstract

Blood forms of human vivax malaria infected splenectomized night monkeys (Aotus trivirgatus). Anopheles albimanus mosquitoes transmitted the infection from a monkey to two human volunteers; parasites and symptoms appeared 11 days later. Blood forms of vivax malaria from each of the two humans infected other night monkeys.
