Twenty splenectomized Aotus vociferans (karyotype V) monkeys were infected with strains of Plasmodium vivax from New Guinea, North Korea, Indonesia, El Salvador, and Honduras. Peak parasite densities ranged from 4,840 to 75,500 per mm3. Gametocytes infective to different species of mosquitoes were produced with all strains of P. vivax studied. Two transmissions of the Chesson strain of P. vivax were made by the intravenous inoculation of dissected sporozoites from An. dirus mosquitoes. Prepatent periods were 16 days.
