Abstract

The Indochina I/CDC strain of Plasmodium falciparum was isolated from a physician returning to the United States after working in the refugee camps along the Thailand-Kampuchean border. The strain was established in splenectomized Aotus monkeys from Colombia after being grown in vitro for 50 days. During the first three passages in Colombian monkeys, the parasites were not infective to Bolivian Aotus monkeys. After six intervening passages in Saimiri sciureus monkeys, the parasites produced high parasitemias in both Colombian and Bolivian Aotus, but gametocytes were no longer produced. Mosquito infections were obtained only during the first three passages in the Colombian monkeys. The most susceptible mosquito was Anopheles freeborni, followed by An. dims, An. stephensi, An. maculatus, An. culicifacies, and, rarely, An. gambiae. Sporozoites were found in the salivary glands of the An. freeborni, An. dirus, An. stephensi, and An. maculatus.
